Vodafone New Zealand is tackling physicist Stephen Hawking’s theories on time in a new campaign to launch its upgraded mobile and broadband network.

The Smart Network campaign uses Hawking’s words to highlight the pace of change and the way time flows at different speeds.

The spot explores the idea of slipperiness of time, which has become a particularly pertinent during Covid, and contrasts fast and slow motion to bring this idea to life.
