Rexona uses Australian cricketer Usman Khawaja in new campaign

Rexona has dropped its latest ad as part of the ‘Moments of Pressure’ campaign, which reminds viewers that in high-pressure situations there’s often only one chance to succeed, and one to fail – so they need a partner who won’t let them down.

Rexona Moments of Pressure

The 30-second video produced by Milkmoney is the newest addition to the short-form video series created by Octagon, which stars ‘pressure athletes’ including: James Moffat, Scott McLaughlin, Garry Rogers, Jonathan Thurston, Patrick Dangerfield and Todd Goldstein

The newest spot opens with Khawaja running onto a cricket pitch surrounded by a roaring crowd, accompanied by a voiceover explaining the intense, high-pressure nature of the professional sport, where you only have “one chance to fail” and “one chance to succeed”.

The ad finishes with the slogan “For moments of pressure – Rexona, it won’t let you down”.
