Brothers battle it out for the top bunk as Suncorp taps into the itch for home renovations

Suncorp is tapping into Australians’ need for more space in their homes in its latest refinancing campaign.

The message is revealed in ad featuring a pair of brothers’ creating chaos in the home during their daily battle to win the top bunk.

The issue is resolved by a renovation of their room providing two top bunks with homeschooling spaces down below.

The ‘Make your house more home’ campaign carries on Suncorp’s new brand platform, ‘That’s the Suncorp Spirit’, which launched in March.

As Suncorp is a sponsor of Nine’s The Block, the campaign has rolled out with the program. It has also been supported by an online content series, ‘From House to Home’, about interior design and featuring The Block judge Shaynna Blaze.

The campaign is grounded in the idea that it is more important now than ever to make the home practical to suit every family’s needs.

Suncorp head of group brands, Tammy Hall, said: “This marketing and brand campaign emphasises that Suncorp can help customers meet their home goals, and brings to life some creative examples of other households doing the same.

“Whether it’s by budgeting like a boss with zero account keeping fees and sub-accounts, or taking advantage of our refinancing cash bonus, Suncorp is there to help Australians, including keen renovators inspired by this year’s The Block.”

Leo Burnett Sydney executive creative director, Andy Fergusson, added: “I think we’ve all realised how important our houses have become in recent times. And I think this spot really captures the nuances and pressures of home life, but also some of the positive aspects and joy that comes from being more connected to our families.”

The campaign film was directed by Paola Morabito of Finch.
