Bet365 Gets Behind The Die-Hard AFL Fans In Latest Campaign Via Crater

Crater have produced a three-part series for bet365 that brings to life the fanatical fans behind three AFL teams.

Filmed just weeks prior to COVID-19 striking and hosted by comedian Danny McGinlay, footy tragics from the Tigers, Bulldogs and Giants take the viewer into their homes and into Richmond’s community hall as they assemble the new seasons banners.

“The AFL is a key content platform and we wanted to engage their most passionate fans,” said Liam Geoghegan, Social Media Manager bet365 Australia, “this series highlights just how passionate those fans are during a very testing time.”

Danny McGinlay being a Bulldogs supporter himself, lends his understanding of the game coupled with his humour to get to the bottom of past battles between the teams, the players, the memories and what the year presents for each of the supporters and their beloved tribes.

Ed de Carvalho, Director of the campaign said, “Working with Danny on this project was a natural choice. His humorous takes on the AFL and banners in the past have been a talking point for some time. It was this and his in-depth knowledge of AFL that made him the perfect host for some AFL content with Bet365. Whilst we had some changes to the end production due to COVID-19, it was Danny’s hilarity and relatability with fans that shined through in each piece.’”

Simon Morehead, Creative Director said, “With the last three months impacting filming across the industry, the production found itself in a holding pattern with the AFL season being recommenced. As our films focused on season launch, when the AFL seasons was re-established, Crater had to use its’ flexible approach and fast thinking in order to deliver bet365 relevant films for release.”
