HBF – I Need A Zero

“The minute we saw ‘Holding out for a Zero’, we knew this was the idea to take to market – big, bold and uplifting.”


Our team was excited to jump right in after we scored this brief. Taking a deep-dive into the iconic 80’s hair styles, we couldn’t wait to dress our favourite marsupials in some backlit, smoke haze scenes.

Power ballads


Mighty Nice and Leo Burnett Melbourne united again to bring back HBF’s sassy, straight-talking quokkas and celebrate the health insurer’s 0% premium increase in 2020.

Celebrating 1.2m views on Youtube, this spot is the is the fourth instalment from Mighty Nice x Leo Burnett x HBF.

Using as many 3D animated assets as we could from the 30 second spot, we were also asked to create an extended lyric video to run alongside in socials.
