Tastes Like: The Aussie Open With Vegemite, QMS & Thinkerbell

As the official partner of the 2019 Australian Open ballkids, Vegemite has unveiled a cheeky dynamic outdoor campaign on QMS’ iconic Richmond digital billboard; ‘The Punt.’

In collaboration with creative agency Thinkerbell, the quintessentially Australian brand is putting a tongue-in-cheek tennis-related twist on their celebrated ‘Tastes Like Australia’ campaign.

Over the Australian Open period, Melbournians and tennis fans will get a taste of what it means to be a part of summer’s most anticipated sporting event through a series of contextually relevant creative executions.

Utilising remote URL hosting technology, Thinkerbell will have complete creative control of content displayed by Vegemite, using witty copy and classic colloquialisms to respond to the events of the Australian Open as it unfolds.

QMS general manager of operations Steve Bovey said “The dynamic digital technology behind this campaign ensures immediate relevance and strong brand alignment for Vegemite.

“With Thinkerbell having the ability to update and schedule creative instantly, Vegemite is able to relate to tennis-goers in a fun and unique way via our iconic ‘The Punt’, just a stone’s throw away from all the action at Melbourne Park.”

Thinkerbell founder & chief creative officer Jim Ingram said: “Being able to write, and then execute in real time has been an absolute blast.

“The agency has had a lot of fun with this submitting their ideas for the site, based on what they see happening and it’s been a great experience for the whole team.

“It’s also great to see a broadcast, high reach medium such as outdoor being so reactive and dynamic.”
