Koala Reveals Stellar Performance Metrics for Recent Campaign

Melbourne, Australia – March 11, 2020 – Direct-to-consumer(D2C) furniture company Koala has reported recent performance metrics in their standout YouTube ad-campaign, ‘Never Uncomfortable’.
Koala, well known for their hilarious and controversial marketing, teamed up with Aussie video production company Vidico for a fifth time to create the piece. 
Dealing with perennially uncomfortable subjects like sub-par bedroom performance, unexpected pregnancy, and coming out to your parents – the campaign plays around with the idea that on a Koala – nothing is uncomfortable.
In the continually crowded D2C bedroom market – the campaign managed to achieve View Rates of over 41% – head and shoulders ahead of the platform standard. 
Michael Pirone, art director at Vidico said in a statement: “Millions of Australian’s have seen and loved our work with Koala, but I think this campaign tops them all by a long shot. The reality is that‘Never Uncomfortable’ is outperforming work that is likely 4-5x the budget — there’s a huge value component that Koala and Vidico have figured out when it comes to long-form content.”
Koala’s creative director Michael Beveridge was massively pleased with how the campaign has performed. “Koala does creative that appeals to consumers, not award show judges, and I think that’s why our video creative is continually considered the benchmark by Facebook and Youtube – our click through rates, our view through rates and our conversion rates are always top-notch.”
“The Never Uncomfortable campaign was our most cost-efficient in terms of lifting purchase consideration, and following our brand uplift study, we had an overall lift in Positive Response Rate  of 20%, which is massive, considering where Koala sits in the market.”
The campaign was directed by Vidico co-founder and executive producer Evan Pirone, and features Australian weird comedy legends Ben Russell and Xavier Michelides.
Vidico typically produces a long-form piece of content for clients and then looks at numerous ways to generate cut-downs with alternate messaging as part of its value proposition.
Evan Pirone said in a statement, “Creative awards are great, but client outcomes come first. We see there being a lot of misused spend when it comes to the typical video production model, where the focus isn’t on outright performance — at the end of the day, it’s about generating real returns for the client. It’s all that really matters.”
The campaign is currently one of Koala’s best performing videos to date.
