Posted on 30 Jan 2014

This Sunday 2nd February will see’s BRIAN the Robot making his first TV venture into home insurance.

The new advertising campaign sees BRIAN continue on his mission to save people pounds. In this new advert BRIAN is focused on saving as many customers money on their home insurance as possible.

To spread the word, BRIAN is using a window cleaner’s cradle to travel up a block of apartments, delivering his message to its inhabitants. For BRIAN this is a fast and ingenious way of getting to as many people as possible, allowing him to highlight the importance of protecting one’s home and belongings.

The 40 second advert, set in the heart of London, shows BRIAN innocently taking a glimpse into people’s homes as he travels up the apartment complex. BRIAN takes the opportunity to point out to customers that they should insure what matters most to them from ‘personal belongings’ to ‘family heirlooms’ and ‘really old antiques’.

BRIAN has embarked on his latest adventure to let people up and down the country know that home insurance is essential to protect the personal belongings that we all cherish the most.
This is the first time we have seen BRIAN demonstrate his passion for and expertise in home insurance. The campaign continues to show BRIAN’s desire to help people save pounds, not just in car insurance, but also in home insurance. launched home insurance in 2005. Since its launch, the home insurance service has continually evolved to suit customers’ needs. It provides consumers with a quick, efficient and competitive way of getting home insurance. provides quotes from more than 80 home insurance providers through its website. Thanks to this wide selection, the company offers customers great deals on the cost of their home insurance, as well as tailoring it to the individual’s needs.

“We are excited that BRIAN is continuing on his mission by helping customers get a great deal on their home insurance. We want to let consumers know that we compare a wide variety of insurance products, not just car insurance.
