Western Power and Wunderman Thompson continue to Make the Safe Call with the latest extension of their electrical safety campaign

| | 1 Comment

Continuing on from the success of Western Power’s safety campaign earlier this year, Wunderman Thompson’s latest work for Western Power introduces us to a very realistic electrical mishap featuring a new, and rather unfortunate, character Jan.


The campaign is based off the recent ‘Western Australia’s Storm of the Decade’, where up to 80% of electricity outages were caused by wind-borne debris flying into powerlines. This included items ranging from sheds, to trampolines.

The ‘Make the Safe Call’ Winter campaign continues to bring an observational humour to a serious topic and help the public understand Western Power’s role in keeping the people of Western Australia safe and connected to the grid.

Wilora Keeley and Tim Newton, Wunderman Thompson creatives behind the campaign, said: “We loved working on a campaign, and with a client, that challenges category norms. We worked with some very talented people to bring this to life and we’ve been itching to get the whole campaign out there”.

The campaign extensions are live on TV this week, with digital and social mediums to follow.
