19 Crimes

We Didn’t Want to Leave Europe Either

Agency: Wunderman Thompson


As the world waited for the result of the UK polls, two 19 Crimes FPC ads were published next to some of the world’s top Brexit stories in various mastheads across UK & Australia.
The UK campaign headline ‘You Got a Vote, We Got a Boat’, contrasts the UK election and subsequent plans for Brexit against Australia’s convict past. The press ad ran as the votes were tallied in the UK’s Metro, Evening Standard, Guardian and Times.
The local Australian version ‘We Didn’t Want to Leave Europe Either’, leveraged Australia’s history of convict transportation from Europe in the 1800s. The press ad appeared across the Herald Sun, Courier Mail and Daily Telegraph.

This professional campaign titled 'We Didn’t Want to Leave Europe Either' was published in Australia in December, 2019. It was created for the brand: 19 Crimes, by ad agency: Wunderman Thompson. This Print medium campaign is related to the Alcoholic Drinks industry and contains 2 media assets. It was submitted almost 4 years ago.
