Leo Burnett & Prime Video show Usman Khawaja what cricket fever really looks like – adobo Magazine

Must read

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA — As the new home of ICC World Cup Cricket in Australia, Prime Video has kicked off its campaign for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup featuring Aussie cricket superstar Usman Khawaja.

The creative by Leo Burnett Australia dramatizes how “cricket fever” can take hold of a nation, spreading excitement — game by game, fan by fan, until everyone gets caught up in the event. The film follows Usman as he realizes the “fever” has taken hold of his own street.

It aims to differentiate from the category and connect with cricket lovers through a shared fanaticism of the sport, with cricket references abound for casual and superfans alike.

Audiences are reminded that the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup will soon be exclusively on Prime Video, live from June 02 to 30. View the film on youtube or instagram.

The campaign will run across TV, BVOD, YouTube, Social, OLV, and owned channels.

Prime Video is the exclusive Australian broadcaster of the Men’s and Women’s Cricket World Cups, T20 World Cups, the Champions Trophy, and the World Test Championship Final until 2027. Prime Video exclusively holds the live Australian broadcast rights for ICC cricket events for the next four years. Cricket fans across Australia will have exclusive access to all matches in every elite ICC tournament, including the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup. This is at no extra cost to a Prime membership and is available as part of new customers’ free 30-day trial.
