Paddy Power We Hear You in Italy
PaddyPower is running “We Hear You”, an advertising campaign focusing on the concerns expressed by football fans. First launched in the UK, the campaign has moved to Italy with a pair of films providing off-beat solutions to corruption and match fixing, designed in response to comments by Facebook fans. “Jesus” (banned by some Italian broadcasters) answers a fan who thinks Italian football is in such a mess that only a miracle can save it. “Billionaire” addresses a fan’s complaint about overpaid footballers.
