Motor Insurers' Bureau launches video campaign targeting uninsured drivers

The Motor Insurers’ Bureau (MIB) has brought creative agency TVC on board to help reduce the number of people driving without car insurance through a new awareness campaign.

TVC won the account following a competitive tender earlier this year. Campaign activity will move the conversation beyond car insurance, to safety and protection particularly within local communities, and put the spotlight on the consequences of driving without insurance.

The agency devised and produced a video which, building on MIB’s original ‘Gone in Seconds’ activity, highlights the consequences of uninsured driving and puts a memorable twist on the meaning of protection. The video is being promoted across earned, owned and paid channels using a bank of digital assets, and work will continue through the remainder of 2016 and into 2017.

Shavaun Glen, MIB’s chief communications officer, said: “We believe we gave TVC a challenging brief and the team has developed a comprehensive strategy across all disciplines, taking our ‘Gone in Seconds’ concept even further than we imagined. This campaign takes the messages about car insurance and the law into spaces that we’ve never delved into before.

“The film lies at the heart of our campaign strategy. We’re using a combination of fear and fun to drive awareness and interest in our message. We’ve got a tough group of people that we need to reach and so we’ll be building on the digital online plan with community based activities as well as enabling people to engage with the issue through user generated content and via influencers.”

James Myers, TVC group global managing director, said: “We were excited by MIB’s brief and really enjoyed putting together our response.

“We did a huge amount of strategic planning and totally immersed ourselves in what MIB does to understand the target audience and how best to engage with them.”

Media is being planned by All Response Media (ARM) and delivers the creative work produced by TVC into the paid for online spaces that form part of the overall campaign approach.
