GPY&R Melbourne launches 'Not on our Watch' spot for Australia v India Vodafone test series

cricket1.jpgCB Exclusive - Cricket Australia, via agency GPY&R Melbourne, has launched a brand new commercial for the eagerly anticipated Vodafone Test Series between Australia and India.
With some of India's greatest stars in perhaps their final tour of Australia, India see this as their best chance yet to win down under. So much so that the whole nation is already planning the celebrations for their first ever Test series victory in Australia. But not if the Aussies have anything to do with it.

The campaign was shot on location in New Delhi over an intense four days by Melbourne production company The Directors Group.
Says Ben Coulson, executive creative director of GPY&R Melbourne:  "This season's Vodafone Test series is going to be an absolute cracker, India have a champion team and we have some great new stars ready to rain on their parade.
The Indian fans are pumped up about their chance to win on Australian soil. We thought showing the billion strong Indian army in full preparation, would fire up Aussie fans to get to the matches and help our team over the line."

The first Test kicks off with the iconic Vodafone Boxing Day Test at the MCG, before moving to the SCG, the WACA and finally the Adelaide Oval.
