We’ve done it before and we can do it again, says Steinlager

Steinlager's campaign to support the All Blacks during their attempted retention of the Rugby World Cup focused on the similarities between this quest and the 1905 Originals Tour, where the first team to be known as the All Blacks travelled six weeks by boat and won 34 out of 35 games. And ahead of the final on Sunday morning, DDB New Zealand has released some new print ads focusing on three remarkable stories from that journey.

Dr. Paul Bracewell, founding partner and chief data scientist at Dot Loves Data, says the statistics being thrown around in the media about the 2015 Rugby World Cup are typical of many applications of analytics in the business world: there are few actionable insights being provided. So he crunched the numbers and showed that the simplest solution is often the best.

Haka all around: AIG's VR app lets fans get all up in the All Blacks' faces—UPDATED

There's been plenty of talk about the haka in recent days, as there always is when the All Blacks head to Europe. And there's been plenty of brand activity involving virtual reality recently too, with everyone from Kellogg's to Contiki getting in on the action. Now AIG, the major jersey-hogging sponsors of the All Blacks, have combined both of those things for the Haka 360˚ Experience.

ASB zeroes in on the psychology of success with business-focused All Blacks campaign

The corporate world has long looked to professional athletes and coaches for guidance on how to perform better, how to create a positive culture and, if they're being honest, how to grind their opposition into the dust. And ASB has looked to the All Blacks—or, more specifically, the team behind the All Blacks—to provide some pearls of wisdom for Kiwi businesses.

More brands join the rolling marketing maul as RWC 2015 draws closer

Often hardcore sports fans act if they are part of the team they are supporting. This definitely seems to be the case of football fans. When discussing how the team performed the word “we” is thrown around a lot. “We really stuck it to them this time”, “We sure came out on top in that last game”, “We caned those guys”. You get the picture. Rexona’s new ad attempts to channel this collective consciousness showing that while game day preparation for an All Black will differ significantly to that of a fan, many of their movements are similar, illustrating how 'we' (fans and players) move together. PLUS following on from our last round up, here’s the 411 on what a few other brands are up to around RWC 2015 including: Airbnb, Jockey, Vogel's, Land Rover and Steinlager.

Ford gets chatty with the All Blacks

New Zealanders are well-accustomed to getting whacked over the head with rugby ads and sponsorship activations. And that only increases in the lead up to—and during—the Rugby World Cup. Many of the tournament sponsors like Land Rover, Heineken, Mastercard and Coca-Cola have played their first promotional hands. And, among the All Blacks sponsors, Adidas has embraced the players' inner animals for Force of Black, Air New Zealand has upped its sponsorship and its efforts around the #crazyaboutrugby platform, Steinlager has teased the return of the white can and NZ Rugby even decided to do its own campaign. Now Ford and JWT have joined in with an online video campaign called The Driven that talks to three All Blacks about their driving habits and their favourite models.

New Zealand Rugby sidesteps sponsors with its own campaign, calls on Kiwis to join #teamallblacks

The All Blacks brand has become a huge commercial force in recent years and the players are regularly wheeled out to participate in campaigns for New Zealand Rugby's sponsors. While there a whole host of fairly strict rules around those appearances, those campaigns still have an agenda attached. And while we've seen work like Spark's Backing Black or, further back in time, Steinlager's Stand by Me aiming to galvanise support around the team, New Zealand Rugby hasn't done a campaign for themselves (aside from a few Super Rugby efforts). But as the All Blacks prepare to defend the Rugby World Cup, that's changed with 'Belong', an initiative aimed at getting fans to show their love for the team and join the "online clubroom" Team All Blacks.
