Kinetic Super attempt to tackle apathy towards super in new campaign from Naked

Industry super fund Kinetic Super is attempting to tackle apathy from younger people towards the product in a new campaign which seems to take inspiration from the Colour Run.

Created by Naked Communications, the ad sees a collection of young people throw coloured paint dust against a white board and at each other before peeling off stickers to reveal the word Kinetic perfectly white against a now colourful backdrop.

An overlaid narration says “We move more than every before, we don’t sit still except when it comes to our super. So come on Australia, lets get our super moving too.”

Kinetic Super’s marketing manager Lynda Cavalera said: “Tackling apathy towards super is not new on the agenda for many super funds, however the challenge is finding innovative ways to overcome it. We’re encouraging people to bring the same energy they have for their life and career, to their super.

“It is estimated that one-third of superannuation assets in 20 years will be held by people currently under the age of 30, yet competing priorities, like buying a house, travelling or starting a family, can overshadow their focus on super. Too often we see this lead to apathy towards super, which our campaign aims to overcome.”

Running across TV and outdoor channels, the campaign, which launched on July 20, is further supported with a strong digital and social media presence.

The social media campaign, which utilised the #howwemove hashtag, aims to capture how people move in every aspect of their lives and invites the public to share movement with the fund using the hashtag on Instagram of Twitter.
