The new energy auto-switching service Weflip launched by GoCompare in 2018, which aims to take the hassle out of regularly comparing and changing your energy supplier, is advertised in a new spot, featuring a talking chameleon.
The advert features a woman (played by actress Naomi Sheldon) shocked by the cost of her energy bill who’s asked by the brand’s mascot, the chameleon, about the reason why she doesn’t change to a cheaper supplier. “You need someone who’s good at changing the door for you. Someone who’s flipping fast, someone who’s flipping smart. You need Weflip,” the chameleon, voiced by Australian voiceover artist Jake Downs, tells the lady, adding that “they’ll make flippin’ sure you’re automatically switched to a lower tariff.” “You know what, love? You flippin’ convinced me,” the woman answers.
The spot ends with the chameleon adding the brand’s tagline, “Weflip – so you don’t have to do a flippin’ thing”.
