Today KFC Australia launched its 2016/17 cricket campaign featuring the Home Cricket Ground, which was first introduced three years ago, as a place that allows Aussies to be their true selves and enjoy summer.
This year’s campaign aims to drive user generated content to the specially created website. The videos will then be dubbed with bespoke commentary from Fitzy & Wippa, bringing these special moments to life with their unique and distinctly Aussie banter.
Free chips will be given to every successful upload, the most viewed entry each week will win $1,000 and all entries go into the draw to win cricket tickets.
Ogilvy Sydney group creative director, Shaun Branagan said, “KFC’s summer cricket campaign is all about bringing the ‘Home Cricket Ground’ or the HCG to life through user generated content. Pretty much everyone has a funny video on their phone that could be made a lot funnier with some comedic commentary from Fitzy & Wippa.”
The integrated 360 campaign, that features; TV, social, PR, Digital, OOH, Radio, At Match Assets and Stadium Signage, launches today from Ogilvy Sydney and also introduces the new Bacon Lovers Burger and new range of frozen carbonated beverages featuring Pepsi and Mountain Dew. More new products will be introduced throughout the course of the summer.
You can see them all here, but here’s a teaser.
Catherine Tan, CMO at KFC said, “For over 15 years KFC has been has been celebrating cricket across Australia. We are so excited that this year we get to see, and celebrate, individual highlights from HCGs across the nation. We’re anticipating Fitzy & Wippa’s commentary will add fun and hilarity to Aussies favourite HCG highlights.”
Throughout the summer, KFC will also execute their sponsorship at all KFC Big Bash League and KFC International T20s games around the country.
