The Year in Review: Damon O'Leary and Dave Nash

After saying goodbye to BNZ, 'recalibrating' the agency and adding a couple of ex-Ogilvy chaps to its creative arsenal, Sugar&Partners had plenty to contend with this year. But it took it in its stride and released some quality campaigns for TAB, new challenger telco Flip and, slightly controversially given its similarity to a popular cat video, Mammoth Insulation. Dave Nash and Damon O'Leary sum up their 2012.

The weekend calls as the TAB and Sugar & Partners bring back the bickering, bet-loving bros

The newly rebranded Sugar & Partners announced the addition of Dave Nash as a creative partner a couple of days ago. And it has just launched a new campaign for the TAB that has continued on from last year's successful 'Your Call' campaign (which included the best example of psychic poultry the world may have ever seen) with a new effort that aims to show the 'weekend's for calls'.

Art imitates life with TAB's poultry oracle

Given the unexpectedly small one-point gap on Sunday night—and the fact that the final was the biggest ever event in the TAB's betting history with over $3 million wagered—the TAB will probably do quite well out of the RWC final. But, much more importantly, its 'prediction chicken' has been shown to have verifiable soothsaying skills.
