Matthew Hayden and Alinta Energy customers say ‘Flick Them’ to high energy rates

Alinta Energy Queensland has recruited former Australian cricketer Matthew Hayden to star in its new ad, encouraging customers to say ‘flick them’ to increasing energy prices.

Created by Banjo, the 30 second commercial opens with Hayden saying ‘flick them’, followed by a woman putting her energy bill up the vacuum and a grandma shredding her bills in the pasta maker all while saying the tagline.

The ad continues to show a young woman turn her energy bill into a paper plane and a man shred his in the fan.

Alinta Energy promotes the offer of receiving 25% off electricity usage charges when switching to the provider.
