"Before one can run, one must learn to walkabout." To celebrate the opening of Walkabout Australia, San Diego Zoo Safari Park’s new interactive safari, agency M&C Saatchi LA has launched “Safari, Aussie Style. Embracing the Way of the Roo.” The campaign is guided by Kanguru, an endearingly free-spirited, bohemian Australian with a Southern Californian flower-child attitude. Along the Walkabout, he encounters some of the fauna that inspire his positive outlook. Visitors to Walkabout Australia can do the same, while they explore 3.6 acres of everything awesomely Aussie in four different habitats. The campaign includes spots for broadcast and theatrical release, directed by Gentlemen (Brett Snider and Billy Federighi) that air throughout the summer. “Welcome to Walkabout,” is a centerpiece: 30 spot that introduces the Way of the Roo with the affable Kanguru and his furry and feathered Aussie mates.
