New ‘Australians Can Beat Anything’ ad campaign launches, invokes Australian’s fighting spirit to boost vaccinations and beat Covid

A powerful new public service campaign that heroes the country’s ingenuity, inventiveness and resilience to overcoming challenges is being released nationally in a bid to boost Australia’s double vaccination rate to 80% or more as quickly as possible.

The ‘Australians Can Beat Anything’ campaign – a collaboration between Australia’s advertising media and consulting industries – will hit TV screens, online sites and social media from September 27th, rallying Australians to get vaccinated by demonstrating our proven ability to overcome the most difficult of challenges and crises.

The inspirational campaign spotlights how Australians have conquered natural disasters such as bushfires, floods, drought as well as the GFC, and championed innovations including the cochlear implant to overcome deafness, and in the case of Fred Hollows, treat avoidable blindness.

‘Australians Can Beat Anything’ is a collaboration between Advertising Council Australia and consulting firm Accenture, created and produced by The Monkeys, part of Accenture Interactive, and production company Rabbit, with the shareholders of the Premium Content Alliance – Foxtel, News Corp, Nine, Seven West Media and 10 – donating media for the campaign.

Premium Content Alliance CEO, Kim Portrate, says: “This initiative is the best way for us to do our part in encouraging all Australians to get vaccinated. The reach of our shareholders will ensure the campaign is seen by millions who will watch, hear, read and remember what can be accomplished when we come together as a country.”

Advertising Council Australia CEO Tony Hale said there is great momentum for vaccination but more needs to be done as part of a concerted push to boost double vaccination rates to the levels and within the timeframe needed.

“As part of a call to arms, we need to bring those who are uncertain about vaccination onboard and get the last leg of double vaccinations underway in a bid to reach a minimum of 80% so we can open the country up as quickly as possible.”

The Monkeys Co-founder & Group CEO, and Accenture Interactive ANZ Lead, Mark Green, said: “Many Australians have been greatly affected by the pandemic and in these difficult times, it’s important to look back and reflect on all of the challenges we have overcome as a nation.

“As part of this fantastic collaboration, I’m proud of our industry for coming together to encourage all Australians to prioritise vaccination. With one final push, let’s apply our fighting spirit to this pandemic – if we all get vaccinated, we can beat this challenge too.”
