Familiar and relatable moments that take a turn for the unexpected.

In its latest campaign, Telstra takes a humorous approach to showcase great deals Australains would not expect to see coming.

Created in partnership with The Monkeys, part of Accenture Song, ‘Deals You Didn’t See Coming’ captures familiar and relatable moments that take a turn for the unexpected, all thanks to Telstra’s surprising deals.

Telstra's chief marketing officer, Brent Smart, said there’s a lot of retail clutter in this category.

"We want to cut through the noise and showcase our deals with a bit of unexpected humour that you might not have seen coming from our brand," said Smart.

The Monkeys chief creative, Ant Keogh, said these are retail spots, and they tell a story about great value which can potentially go on indefinitely.

"And while we feature a giant starburst rondel in every ad, the humour allows us to treat the audience with respect and intelligence the whole time," he said.

The campaign includes broadcast TV, digital, OOH, retail, social and radio, and will run throughout the year to signpost Telstra’s great retail deals.

The campaign was made with Benji Weinstein from Finch and launches with up to $750.00 off a range of devices, an offer which runs until September 4, 2023.
