Does one need flood coverage in the desert?

In Budget Direct’s latest ad featuring Captain Risky, all is not well for the beaded one.

Created by 303 MullenLowe, the ad, which builds on the idea that at Budget Direct you don’t pay for extras that you don’t need – like flood cover, shows the Captain getting a tad lost.

With only 20% of homes in Australia having some risk of flood, according to flood data based on analysis conducted by Auto & General Insurance Company, Budget Direct customers only pay for flood cover if they want to – it says.

Captain Risky’s Desert Trek’ was directed by Hamish Rothwell at Goodoil, with effects by Alt VFX.
