So to meet the objective, we decided to bring back two colourful characters who had first been introduced in a previous project. This would help to create a halo effect for Hippo and extend the commercials association to and from other campaigns.
Created around the premise of an over demanding customer and the toils of a downtrodden tradesman. This troubled relationship produced the perfect comical situation for our product. Allowing its key abilities to be highlighted, around the subject of getting demanding jobs done quickly. All before the football match starts!
