Mini Legends Star in NAB's Latest Campaign to Support AFL Auskick via Clemenger BBDO Melbourne
NAB's commitment to supporting footballers from NAB AFL Auskick to the big time is embodied in a new advertising campaign created by Clemenger BBDO Melbourne, that features mini versions of some of the biggest names in the game.
The campaign features eighteen Auskickers, each bearing an uncanny likeness to well-known AFL players, including a rough and rugged Joel Selwood, a bearded Max Gawn and a super slick Gary Ablett Jnr.
Says Knott: "This campaign really captures the fun and love of AFL that is seen at every level of the game, and in particular at Auskick centres across the country every week.
"NAB has been taking elite footy to regional towns through the NAB Challenge for more than 10 years and fosters young talent through the NAB AFL Rising Stars Program.
"But we don't want to just sponsor footy, we want to grow it, which is why we are such proud supporters of NAB AFL Auskick."
Clemenger BBDO Melbourne creative director Richard Williams, says the campaign is an authentic take on what thousands of Australian kids love about football.
Says Williams: "It could be celebrating a goal with their mates, disposing of the ball in a flash of brilliance or being on their hands and knees in exhaustion. These kids are not just dressed up as their heroes but actually imagining themselves being them."
