Utes turn into confessionals for tradies in CarsGuide campaign by Red Engine SCC

Australian automotive media brand, Carsguide, has unveiled a new campaign which celebrates how cars can be used as mobile confessionals by everyday Australian tradies.

The social content series, by Red Engine SCC features nine video spots as part of the first phase of the campaign, led by Aussie comedian Luke Heggie, who interviews each tradesman about their on-the-job experiences.

The online campaign aims to convey the importance of utes in everyday life, in a playful and comical way.

Julian Townley, CEO of Red Engine SCC said: “With brands having to work harder to steal attention of audiences across multiple platforms, our latest work for CarsGuide aims to cut through the noise with some good, old fashioned tradie humour.”
