Next phase of ‘Should’ve 2:0’ campaign offers a playful take on Specsavers’ iconic tagline

Specsavers today unveils its integrated campaign – ‘I Don’t Go…’, the next iteration of the ‘Should’ve 2:0’ campaign, to highlight its home visits service and drive brand reappraisal.

A playful take on the iconic ‘Should’ve gone to Specsavers’ campaign, the new advert centres on the tagline ‘I don’t go to Specsavers…they come to me’, to bring greater inclusivity to the brand offering.

As Specsavers’ first brand advert to feature Home Visits, the campaign plays out across TV, print, out of home, radio, cinema and digital display, throughout the UK and Northern Ireland. The TV commercial was directed by Ric Cantor of FRIEND, who also directed the recent ‘Out Of Order’ spot for Specsavers, featuring a short-sighted delivery driver.

Laura Cooney Marketing Lead, Home Visits at Specsavers, comments:

“Our home visits service provides vital eyecare for those people that cannot get to a Specsavers store and we are delighted to see it being celebrated in a campaign of this magnitude. Our aim is to always empower our customers through our marketing and “I Don’t Go…” absolutely does this. The campaign is powerful and emotive and most importantly, the customers are in on the joke!”

Chris Carter, Marketing & E-Commerce Director, Specsavers, comments:

“Nothing reflects the purpose of Specsavers better than our home visit service. We were founded back in 1984 with the vision of making eye and hearing care more accessible to all, and this service has been our best kept secret for far too long. Our in-house agency has done a fantastic job in using our distinctive tone of voice to tell this story and I’m delighted we’re now communicating this service nationwide so that many more people can benefit from this essential service in their homes.”
