Savings Well Spent

by Syd Briscoe

Uswitch: “Before and After” - 60s

Along with a complete overhaul of their look and logo, price comparison site Uswitch have launched their biggest commercial campaign for twenty years this spring - kicking off with this playful ode to money well-saved.

Whatever our pastime - be it for garish trainers, geekdom, or going all out on dates - the brand reckon they can save us enough cash on energy bills to pursue a hobby with fresh vigour. This is ably illustrated by an affectionate montage of weirdos, who each revel in their own oddities with pride.

Boasting quirky visuals and a welcome sense of humour, director Kevin Thomasís ad marks the next step up from 2017ís coach-focused campaign - as Uswitch have become increasingly sophisticated in their advertising strategy. Hopefully this means the Philip Glenister days are consigned to the history books for good.
