Rebel Sport explains why lefties have a natural advantage
By

Rebel Sport is continuing its facts-based advertising approach with a new spot that alludes to the natural advantage that left-handed batsmen have over their right-handed counterparts. The 30-second clip, which was conceptualised by Ogilvy and shot by Film 360, is the latest iteration of the ongoing ‘no one gets sports like us’ positioning, and follows on from Rebel Sport’s ‘Sprinting or Flying?’ TVC that was released toward the end of last year.

Super Pig: Ogilvy ‘makes pork the hero’ with meaty triple treat
By

Since it won the New Zealand Pork account early last year, Ogilvy has been on a mission to change outdated perceptions and “drive purchase behaviour through a journey of digital awareness, engaging in-store communications, promotions and demonstration”. It brought chef Simon Gault onboard as spokescook for the Extraordinary Kitchen campaign and focused heavily on retail. But, like its recent change of direction for Holden, it’s tried to bring a bit more emotion to the table and, as executive creative director Angus Hennah says, “tell simple human stories that make pork the hero”.

Bait and twitch: Ogilvy injects some local charm back into the Holden brand
By

It’s been a while between brand ads for Holden, with the car company favouring Clarke Gayford, a stark warehouse and a bit of glitchy electronica to spruik its various models recently. But, with the help of Ogilvy and Robber’s Dog, it’s taken a slightly more creative, emotional and story-based approach with a nice new spot featuring a twitchy main protagonist who, like the self-harming, car-loving cat in the Toyota Corolla campaign, finds unexpected peace in his vehicle.
