Parris Goebel challenges Super Rugby stars to step up

New Zealand's rugby stars have now confirmed that their skills extend beyond making huge hits on the field in a new Super Rugby promo clip by Sugar & Partners that has them performing dance moves alongside choreographer Parris Goebel and her crew.

Goebel, the New Zealand-born and internationally renowned choreographer, is something of a brand favourite at the moment, having also lent her services to a campaign for ANZ. But this isn't surprising, given Goebel's major following, particularly among hard-to-reach milennials.

It is also refreshing to see sports advertising shift away from the usual male-focused approach to appeal to a broader audience.     

And while it still has the big hits that will appeal to the more masculine viewers in the audience, the use of the infectious backtrack 'Bang, Bang' by Jessie J, Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj will likely also catch the attention of the women in the audience, who are often also ardent fans of the Super Rugby teams.    

Goebel and her crew no doubt enjoyed getting up close with the likes of Jerome Kaino and Israel Dagg to create the ads with director and music video vet James Solomon of Flying Fish. Two of the 15-second teaser ads are running on Sky now, while the 60-second hero, which is currently running on social, will air on Sky throughout the Super Rugby season.

Sugar & Partners creative and digital director, Dave Nash, says eight more versions of the main spot will dop throughout the season, including individual franchise versions and a full dance edit.

Filming today for new Super Ad. Mean to meet @parrisgoebel and her crew @requestdancecrew #SuperBangBang

Surveying the marcomms landscape: share your thoughts, shape some stories

Here at StopPress and NZ Marketing, it's our job to find the most interesting things to cover, whether new campaigns, big shifts or thorny issues. But it's not a one-way street. We're always pestering our contacts to figure out what stories we should be writing and what the industry is talking about. But we want to go a bit wider. So, in a regular survey run by TRA, we're asking for your opinions on everything from the effectiveness of recent campaigns to the most under-rated marketing disciplines.
