-Agency The Hallway launched the first campaign for Australia’s new streaming service Binge, entitled “We’re for the Bingers” (video above).

The Hallway partner, executive creative director Simon Lee explained that the campaign was delayed by the Covid-19 pandemic.

“We were about to go into production on a large-scale TVC when the country went into lockdown, which meant we needed to change our whole direction pretty much overnight,” Lee said in a statement published in LBB. “The team jumped straight into reconceptualizing and planning a brand launch in this new world we found ourselves living in. The resulting campaign is a testament to the agility of our team and a great collaborative relationship.”
