The Year in Review: Friday O'Flaherty and Andy Mitchell

2011 was another good year for the indies, which are often playing in the same sandpit as the big boys and occasionally stealing their spades and buckets. And, with a range of experienced big agency campaigners now plying their trade outside the walls of the multinationals, this trend looks set to continue. Running With Scissors' two main brains Friday O'Flaherty and Andy Mitchell get their freak on.

The Year in Review: Nick Vile

2011 was a big year for Adshel, with the departure of Australian-based chief executive Steve McCarthy and marketing director Elvira Lodewick, the reinstitution of the much-loved Adshel Rally after a six-year hiatus and the added buoyancy—and, in many cases, frustration—brought to the outdoor sector by the RWC. So, take it away national sales director Nick Vile.

The Year in Review: Scott Wright

Frucor, with the help of its long-time agency Colenso BBDO, maintained its consistency in 2011, with V continuing its run as one of the country's most innovative brands and Mountain Dew Skate Pinball taking experiential marketing to a whole new level of massiveness. Marketing director Scott Wright spills the beans.

Nielsen data shows Heineken on top of RWC sponsorship pile, but All Blacks supporters high up the list

There's been a lot of chatter about the benefits of sponsorship and the threat of ambush marketing over the past few months. Some believed the All Blacks were a more valuable property to be associated with, others believed the Rugby World Cup was worth the sizable investment. So we were interested to see this Nielsen data showing which brands the hoi polloi perceived as sponsors of the event in June and then again in October.

Heineken toasts Ad Impact victory as 'The Entrance' keeps RWC rhythm going

The dust has largely settled after the glorious Rugby World Cup shindig. But Heineken has kept up the momentum of the 46 percent increase in total sales it recorded in September/October when compared to the year prior after being awarded the Ad Impact Award for October for its new ad ‘The Entrance’, which was launched Super Bowl style at half-time during the final.

Adidas brings back the All Black victory tingles with 'all ours, again'

The party may be over. But, as expected, there are plenty of sponsors trying to bask in the reflected glow of the All Blacks Rugby World Cup victory, including Adidas with its new 'all ours, again' spot.

Revealed! Post-Cup beverage scandal!

Not surprisingly, the All Blacks' celebrations with Old Bill in the changing rooms was the most popular photo gallery of the tournament on nzherald.co.nz. But, given the marketing battle royale that has played out between Steinlager and Heineken, we couldn't help but notice one photo in particular. If you look closely you'll see some members of the team—and the Dear Leader who never misses out—drinking the team sponsor's product (good to see Andrew 'The Seal Killer' Hore rocking a white can) in the supposedly 'clean' stadium. But, blow me down, Piri Weepu is supping from a bottle of Heineken. Someone call the IRB. A fine must be dished out.

A requisite message of All Blacks support

Years of pain, suffering and putting up with calls from antagonists who try to dull the throbbing hurt by saying 'it's only a game' might—and should—all be forgotten on Sunday night. And, from a marketing point of view, what a ride the RWC has been. There have been enthralling PR disasters with the likes of MasterCard, Adidas, Telecom and the IRB; there have been PR masterstrokes, like getting the whole NZ-based Tongan community behind their team; there have been great campaigns and stunts that sit somewhere between sneaky and savvy from the likes of Steinlager, NZ Pure, Vogel's and KFC; there have been more than three million Tweets about the tournament and the teams involved in it; and, despite many doubters, Martin Snedden and his gang of RWC 2011 optimists managed to reach their massive ticket sales target and, with 87 percent of tickets sold, showed that marketing and fulfilment don't have to be mutually exclusive. Hopefully that ride comes to an appropriate conclusion in Auckland, which, as one cad said, has looked like an artist's impression for the past six weeks. And hopefully Richie McCaw gets to lead the ticker tape parade down Queen St in Telecom's pink fist car, perhaps with the injured Captain Underpants riding shotgun.

Battle of the rugby chatter

Dr Obvious has diagnosed the RWC as being a pretty hot social media topic (recently released stats show there have been more than 1,931,215 tweets about the #RWC2011 over the past five weeks when you include all teams, hashtags and @rugbyworldcup). And, as this infographic shows, the All Blacks are winning the conversation wars ahead of Sunday's trans-Tasman semi-final stoush.

StopPress' alternative RWC infographics: cannabis use

In news that's sure to warm Don Brash's libertarian cockles, it turns out we're leading the rugby world when it comes to smokin the 'erb, as this wee infographics.co.nz ditty shows. If the IRB gives out a $10,000 fine to Samoan player Alesana Tuilagi for wearing a branded mouthguard, one can only imagine how much it'll cost the All Blacks when Graham Henry makes a bong out of the Webb Ellis trophy on October 23 for a celebratory toke with the team.

It's a game of inches: hard data used for StopPress' alternative RWC predictions

From psychic Kiwis to psychic cows to the TAB's prediction chicken, New Zealand rugby augurs are looking for signs to give them confidence the All Blacks will break their 24 year Rubber Wool Cup drought. But, like GNS vs Ken Ring, we base our predictions on hard data rather than snake oil, as can be seen very clearly with the first of our weekly, alternative Rugby World Cup infographic predictions that generally have absolutely nothing to do with rugby and were created by infographics.co.nz. This week, if the RWC is to be won 'up front', here are the likely contenders based on average penis size, although it should be noted it may be something of a hollow victory for France as the data wasn't available for Fiji, Tonga, Samoa and Namibia.

All-consuming RWC beast devours all in its path

Brad Novak via Cleverbastards.co.nz With the nation currently in the grip of a violent strain of rugby fever (symptoms include very low workplace productivity, constant gridlock in Auckland, increasing popularity for psychic animals, ads between the haka, Google doodles and a penchant for infographics), it's fairly difficult to think about anything else today.

There's gold in them thar hosts: events hay set to be made while RWC shines

New Zealand is getting set to put on a bloody good show for our RWC visitors in the coming months. And there's plenty on the menu to keep them all entertained, from the REAL NZ Festival to the Taste of New Zealand to trade and innovation shows and a whole heap inbetween. But some guests require a bit more impressing and the local events and activation scene is buzzing as official sponsors and plenty of other businesses hoping to use the tournament as a chance to butter up guests and potential clients look to roll out the branded red carpet.
