UberEats recruits various celebrities in first Australian brand campaign

UberEats has launched its first ever brand campaign in Australia featuring celebrities discussing what they will be ordering from UberEats.

The ‘Tonight, I’ll be eating’ campaign is rolling out state targeted ads starring Sophie Monk, Beau Ryan, Ryan Maloney, Naomi Watts and Boy George who tell Australians what they will be ordering from UberEats.

Created by Special Group and Glue Society, the 15 second spots show Naomi Watts ordering a Cheezus Sandwich in her dressing gown, Boy George ordering a Poke Bowl on his bed, Beau Ryan choosing to order Chicken McNuggets in a bath tub while Sophie Monk orders from her lounge room.

Dave Hartmann, strategy partner at the Special Group, said the campaign was based on the insight that one in three Australians don’t know what they are eating for dinner at 5pm.

“When it comes to the crunch, I think most of us will admit to just defaulting to the same old options…or whatever’s wilting in the fridge.

“It’s a question we all ask ourselves every day,” Hartmann said.

Steve Brennen, Uber Australia’s marketing director, added: “This newfound choice is proving super popular with a large and fast growing number of Australians, and we wanted to celebrate this with a fun and humorous campaign featuring some well-loved faces.”

The campaign is set to run across TV, out of home, social and online with state target restaurant options.

Special Group were appointed to the Uber account in May earlier this year.
