Fans sing to their footy heroes in new TAB campaign by Clemenger

TAB will launch ‘We Love a Bet’ on August 28, a brand re-positioning campaign featuring sporting legends Chris Judd, Mark Geyer and Greg Hall in an attempt to shift the company’s focus to its Australian heritage.

TAB, We Love a Bet

The campaign, created by Clemenger BBDO, looks at the non betting side of the TAB, highlighting how great it feels to be a fan.

The three 30-second ad spots feature fans comically singing Bon Jovi’s ‘Always’ to each of the sporting heroes, with flashbacks to the moment each footy player changed the life of a fan.

Claire Murphy, chief marketing officer at Tabcorp, said: “TAB’s new campaign has been developed to remind customers that TAB creates more memorable experiences than anyone else.”

“A bet isn’t just a transaction with us, it is something more social, more entertaining and something that is in our Australian DNA which TAB has always been and will always be part of.”

Paul Nagy, executive creative director, Clemenger BBDO, said: “As Australians we love the beach, we love a beer and we love a bet. It’s part of who we are. And there’s no brand that encapsulates this Aussie passion for betting more than TAB.”

The first two ad spots will be released on Sunday August 28, with the third, featuring Greg Hall, to be unveiled in mid September. The campaign will be rolled out on television, radio and digital.
