Saatchis release campaign for T-Mobile

By Staff, campaignlive.co.uk, Thursday, 26 June 2008 08:30PM

LONDON - Saatchi & Saatchi has created a new integrated campaign for T-Mobile, challenging viewers to find a better deal for their money.

The mobile firm will guarantee to match or beat the number of minutes offered by its competitors for the same price.

The TV campaign shows people in different scenarios searching for minutes in unusual places.

Paul Silburn, creative partner, Saatchi & Saatchi London, said: "Everyone loves a bargain and people will often search high and low to find the best deal. The creative brings that to life."

In one of the TV spots, an archaeologist discards valuable Roman artefacts as he hunts for more minutes.

Another depicts a medium searching for extra minutes in the afterlife during a séance.

The ads broke tonight during the Euro2008 semi final between Spain and Russia.

In addition to the TV campaign, there will be national press, online and outdoor ads.
