Try a little tenderness (or empathy)

Cossette's new spots for Intact Insurance show that getting in tune with your feelings goes a long way.

Sometimes it seems like life would be a little easier if only people exercised their empathy muscles a little bit.

That’s the sentiment fueling Intact Insurance’s new campaign, “Empathy is Everything.” It’s a follow-up to the 2017 campaign, “You Matter,” which had a similar message: insurance is about people, and empathizing with customers makes for a better experience.

Think it’s over-sentimental? Worry not. The new spot by Cossette has a bubbly and slightly exaggerated feel, to show that you can be bold while still driving home (pun intended) a sympathetic message. In the advertisement, a newly trained Intact agent has  his empathy put to the test in a real-life situation – his car was unexpectedly dropped from a 100-foot crane.

Why? Because “if it happens to you, it happens to us.”

The remaining spots will be released throughout the rest of 2018, rolling out on TV and digital.
