Westpac Start Asking

Westpac New Zealand is running “Start Asking”, a multi-platform advertising campaign encouraging banking customers to start asking questions about their money and their values. A 90 second commercial features deep human questions around life decisions. “Why can we ask the big questions in life but not the ones about our money?”. A Facebook app tracks questions asked by New Zealanders on Twitter and invites users to rank their major concerns.
