Commonwealth Bank Americans just don’t get Cricket

Here’s the next instalment in the Commonwealth Bank advertising campaign, developed by Goodby Silverstein & Partners. Two US-based advertising creatives from fictitious agency Luke & Luke arrange to meet with Australian cricketer Mike Hussey and the Australian team in Adelaide for their research. The byline: “We love cricket so we sponsor it.” The campaign is online at lovecricket.com.au
