ConfusedComJustUsed_60 and Leo Burnett UK Strike a Chord with Insurance Whistle

The new partnership invites the nation to revel in the relief of having Just Used

By Creative Salon, in partnership with Leo Burnett UK, are reshaping the narrative around insurance shopping. Entitled "Just Used," the work aims to alleviate the stress and confusion inherent in the insurance selection process while celebrating the satisfaction of securing the right coverage.

Instead of focusing solely on product offerings, aims to tap into consumers' emotions by highlighting the relief and joy associated with finding the perfect insurance policy.

The multichannel campaign will be fronted by a 60” AV and 30” cut downs of a hero film, ‘Whistle’. The film depicts insurance shoppers from all walks of life pursing their lips and effortlessly whistling the joyful tune of Roger Whittaker’s ‘Finnish Whistler’ after quickly and easily buying their insurance.

Maria Howell-Jones, head of advertising and social media at, said: “There’s no two ways about it: choosing an insurance policy can be a stressful task. This is something we can all relate to, and so that was our objective - to create something relatable. Insurance is one of those life admin tasks that comes around each year and takes time to find the right cover and price. But when you do, it’s such a relief. In using, finding your insurance is simple and in the end satisfying, and we want people to know that. This campaign depicts this perfectly and we’re really pleased with the work we’ve done with Leo Burnett to pull this together.”

From the father of a bride giving a wedding speech, to a referee who can’t be flustered and hundreds of commuters packed onto a train platform, the creative builds to the ultimate crescendo. It feels as though the whole nation is joining in with the whistle and revelling in the infectiously joyous moment of having Just Used

The campaign will be supported by two additional 20” AV executions, ‘Wedding’ and ‘Lift’, and two 30” radio spots, specifically focused on’s car and travel insurance offerings. A suite of social activations, including a custom Instagram and TikTok filter that adds the whistle to the faces of potential insurance savers. This will help the campaign reach a range of demographics, including younger audiences.

Mark Elwood, CCO, Leo Burnett UK, added “It's our first work for, and we couldn't be prouder. Creative platform ideas are always stronger and stickier when they're simple. ‘Just Used Confused’ is a truly simple answer that instantly sticks in your brain. Then, the creative work: whistling. We're celebrating the feeling of saving money with with a little whistle. From AV to TikTok, we're going to be whistling…feel free to join in.”
