A round of applause for Anchor, McKayson New Zealand Women’s Open, Netball New Zealand and Jockey.
Marketing, advertising & media intelligence
The All Blacks and All Blacks Sevens players have given audiences a peek of what lies beneath their rugby jerseys in the latest Jockey campaign by Parlour. But rather than taking it off for the camera, they’re putting it on.
The All Blacks have again stripped down for Jockey, but this time they've invited a flabbier friend along for the fun. PLUS: Gatorade signs on as the new "hydration partner" for the team.
From the page to the screen and everywhere inbetween: how magazines are morphing into many-tentacled consumer brands
The Alternative Commentary Collective aka the ACC who made a name for themselves after commentating on the ICC Cricket World Cup earlier this year have struck back, this time to report on the Rugby World Cup 2015 and have teamed up with Jockey as part of its ‘Lucky Jockeys’ campaign to find an eighth member of the collective to join the current crew in London.
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.
Ahhhh, y-fronts. The long-serving, long-suffering undergarment of choice of Homer Simpson, Walter White and probably millions of Kiwi men over the years. And Jockey is celebrating its invention of the famous style 80 years ago by taking us back to 1960.
Yup, you better belieb it, Justin Bieber has now parodied his own “not photoshopped” Calvin Klein ads with Jeff Ross dressed as model Lara Stone. Too soon? Apparently not.
Jockey is continuing its long tradition of stripping the All Blacks down to their tighty whiteys with its latest winter All Colour campaign. But this year it's all about the bright colours.
You can't underestimate the power of the All Blacks when it comes to sponsorships. And it's even better if you can get them half naked, as Jockey did recently as part of a successful activation for New Zealand Fashion Week.
Let's hear it for the boys: Jockey embraces a sponsorship-based double entendre in latest All Blacks work
Jockey announced its sponsorship of the All Blacks and All Blacks Sevens teams early this year and gathered together a host of buff professional rugby players to parade about in their gruts for the black and white launch campaign. Now it's added some colour—and given a cheeky nod to its support of the 'boys'—for a campaign leading into the Bledisloe Cup and Rugby Championship.
Jockey is the latest company to sign up for a sponsorship deal with the NZRU. And, to celebrate the announcement, Jockey has released a behind-the-scenes clip shot by Augusto of the nine All Blacks stripping off, oiling up, mucking about and sucking in.
We’ll be seeing a lot more of the nation’s rugby stars in their tighty-whities now that Jockey has signed a three-year sponsorship deal with the All Blacks and the All Blacks Sevens. Updated with comments from Jockey marketing manager Jane Lawry.
Due to moderately popular demand, our immature penchant for photoshopping heads onto different bodies and a desire to help New Zealand come to terms with the crushing loss of our broken talisman, we've decided to 'disappear' Dan Carter, just as our quarter final opponent did in the 1970s and 80s. Piri Weepu looked good as a Daikin heatpump. So here's how Colin stacks up as an off-field replacement.
Like many New Zealanders gagging for a long-awaited Rugby World Cup victory, the news that Dan Carter was out of the tournament with a groin injury that obviously came about because it was poisoned by the South Africans ripped our knickers and left a gaping void in our now husk-like hearts. As a very valuable marketing property, many of the brands he endorses, such as Jockey (maybe he should've been kicking commando, a la Andre Agassi?), Daikin and Philips, will also be devastated. Before the injury, seeing him on TV or half-nude on a massive billboard was a reminder that our hero was here to vanquish the enemies. Now they only serve to remind us of what we have lost and could forever be linked to pain and suffering. So, for the nation's good, we propose taking the Stalinest approach and changing history by modifying all marketing campaigns featuring our man Dan. To start the ball rolling—and in honour of the tweet that said "serves him right for being a heatpump"—here's what we think his ideal replacement would look like in the role. Interestingly, Piri doesn't look quite as creepy.
Ah New Zealand, what an egalatarian paradise you are, a place where you can shake hands with the Prime Minister without fear of being tackled by secret service agents, where anyone can play golf, squash or tennis without being harrassed by bogans for being an aristocrat and where an All Black can deliver your mail and make you a cup of tea.
