Tradie: Body Wash

Tradie scrubs up alright with Inspired Unemployed TVCs for new Body Wash range

Continuing Tradie’s collaboration with the Inspired Unemployed, Tradie introduces their new branded Body Wash range via these two 15 second TVCs, featuring bath time with Matt and Jack.

“We had a lot of fun coming up with these spots,” says Ben Goodfellow, Tradie founder. “Basically nothing is off limits with these guys¬—they just kept injecting their own unique brand of humour into what were already pretty funny scenarios and the results are exactly what we were looking for.”

Matt Ford and Jack Steel of The Inspired Unemployed have been bathed in glory since bursting onto the social media scene in 2019. Flatmates in Sydney, these two besties clearly like to keep it cheeky even while they’re cleaning up their act. This bubbly duo are used to getting themselves in hot water, but it’s all good clean fun at the end of the day.

“Given all the heaviness of the world right now, it’s been great to produce some lighthearted spots that don’t take themselves too seriously and just put a smile on your face,” said Kyran Docker, Creative Director at The Incubator.

The new 15 second spots will air on National TV from the 16th August. Check them out here:
