Cheeky bookmaker Sportsbet has led the charge of Aussie brands around the FIFA World Cup in Qatar, labelling the event a bit “yeah, nah” in its latest integrated campaign done by its in-house creatives.
The iconic Aussie phrase is the answer to all the big questions around the upcoming global event. Did Qatar win the bid to host the World Cup fair and square? Yeah, nah. Is your mate going to work the next day after pulling a late-nighter watching the Socceroos? Yeah, nah.
“I think we can all agree that most things about this World Cup are a bit yeah, nah. From making fans pay more than $300 a night to sleep in a shipping container, it certainly would’ve been more fun to host it here on our shores. We’re still getting right behind the Socceroos though. Do we think they can get out of the group… Yeah, nah. But we’re just happy to be there!” said Sportsbet’s Sean Ormerod.
The campaign features two 30s TVCs, 4 15s as well as supporting radio, print and OOH, including a 3D Digital execution to be set live in Melbourne featuring the campaigns psychic Octopus.
