Try time: witty banter from Samsung, race-based discrimination from Lucozade and tales of tenacity from Guinness

Rugby rash is spreading quickly among the marketing community, with tournament sponsors, team sponsors and filthy ambushers all riding that World Cup train like Tom Cruise in an action movie. We've already seen plenty of local activity and here are a few from the host countries.

Samsung talks a 'big game'

We're fans of brands that get creative in an effort to hijack the attention generated by major events they don't actually sponsor, whether it's the African airline that found a create way to get Sepp Blatter to endorse it, Nike's focus on other Londons during the Olympics or Calendar Girls flying a plane above Eden Park advertising its services as Martin Guptill smashed a six after a Mitchell Johnson no-ball in the Cricket World Cup. Steinlager is winning that battle at the moment with its 'We Believe' campaign referencing the upcoming Large Sporting Event without actually mentioning it. And Samsung is also embracing euphemisms for one of its promotions. PLUS: Some other quality ambushes.

And this time it's Samsung's turn, with the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge released in New Zealand over the weekend. Here’s how Samsung and the main telcos are ensuring the upgrades continue. PLUS: the environmental perils of obsolescence and the idea of modular phones.

Samsung's very special delivery

Virtual reality is something Facebook bet big on with its acquisition of Oculus Rift for $2 billion. Google has also entered the fray with its very clever, low-cost solution Cardboard. And Samsung is also onboard with its Gear VR, which it's showing off with a clip showing a dad experiencing the birth of his third child from afar and a bunch of Aussies diving with sharks in an unexpected location.

Just swell

Samsung put on a big show for the launch of its new phones early this week. But just a few days before that showoffery we heard a story from the BBC about the environmental problems of a throwaway culture, the mining of rare earth minerals—and the mining of old phones—and the unwillingness of manufacturers to give plans to those who want to try and repair their broken products. So, rather than leaving a number of old phones festering in the bottom drawer, we decided to collect a few and hand them over to Starship. And this is what we found bursting out of an old Galaxy Note 2.

Samsung talks itself up, rather than talking Apple down, with Galaxy S6 launch

People who like new things were treated to the live-streamed unpacking of Samsung's Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge this week at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. And, instead of referencing its main competition Apple with its long-running 'the next best thing is already here' campaign, it's changed its tune slightly, backed its more stylish metal and glass-laden phones and gone with the line 'next is now' for its early promotional clips.

Samsung once again shows its tech in the wild, raises awareness of Jimi Hunt's Live More Awesome charity

Author, creative and eccentric innovator Jimi Hunt founded depression charity Live More Awesome to try to give other sufferers of depression the help he didn’t feel he had received. And while he says it has been hard to find large brands willing to be linked to the charity, that's starting to change, with Spark Foundation and the ZM radio network recently coming on board as sponsors and Samsung releasing a clip via Augusto showing Hunt putting its Galaxy Note 4 to good use. PLUS: get your tickets to the next edition of the World's Biggest Waterslide.

Magical screens

In the world of smartphones, bigger is increasingly better. Samsung got in early with its Note range and got a fair amount of criticism for it. But, much to Samsung's delight, Apple has recently followed suit with its iPhone 6 Plus. Both those phones pale into insignificance when compared to the Nabi Big Tab, however, which employed the services of a magician to show off its wares. PLUS: How big touch screens are being used in retail and marketing and what screens might look like in the future.
