Vegemite & Thinkerbell Have One Last Dig At Marmite’s Ashes Campaign

The Ashes series was drawn, but the Urn returns home to Australia. And in the spirit being good sports, Vegemite has sent a little gift of recognition to their Marmite friends over in the UK – the Mitey Ashes Urn, featuring the charred remains of a piece of Marmite on toast.

If you haven’t been keeping up with the spreads’ tit-for-tat war over the five Ashes Test, check out all the background here.

Matt Gray, Vegemite senior marketing manager said: “It was a Mitey battle and we kept the real Ashes, but hopefully the cremated piece of toast will adorn their mantle until we do battle again.”

A spokesperson for creative agency Thinkerbell added: “The other urn might be the oldest trophy in England and Australia’s cricketing history, but we think this urn could live on even longer.”
