Long-standing client, Betfred, tasked us with devising a fresh and innovative creative concept for their 2021 TV and digital campaigns to drive awareness and engagement with the Brand.
Live sport was finally starting to welcome crowds back after lockdown. Our concept celebrated sport being back and what it means to fans when celebrating a win with their favourite team, sport, or event.
The idea of highlighting live events and their audiences across the year was solid, and we knew it needed a big personality to give it the cut-through we were looking for.
Betfred was keen on a brand ambassador but previously struggled to find the right person.
We came up with Michael Buffer. For us, he represents the main event and his famous tagline “Let’s get ready to rumble” is world-renowned, so we knew he would work.
Jo Whittaker, CEO at Betfred, said the campaign was their best advert to date.
“From the fist time I saw the advert I felt ‘wow’! The music and Michael Buffer ‘Let’s get ready to rumble’ highlighting the best of what we do was just brilliant.
“Zút put their heart and soul into the production, the detail, the planning and the strategy, ensuring it rolled out across our digital media and shops.
“I’m really proud, this is the best advert BetFred’s ever done.”
Betfred boss Fred Done, said: “We are delighted to be associated with Michael, he epitomises what Betfred is all about; Fun, excitement, and big sporting moments.
