O2 wanted to get supporters closer to the Irish rugby team. So we gave fans the chance to record their Team Talk for the Irish rugby players. The best ones were played to the Team and on the big screen at Croke Park. Fans could also get their name printed into the number of an Irish player’s jersey. They could then search for their name to see which player they were a part of, on BeTheDifference.ie. The campaign was a huge success with over 85,000 fans registering their support, to get behind the team.
The Print Ad titled O2 BE THE DIFFERENCE was done by Brando advertising agency for product: Telecommunication (brand: O2) in Ireland. It was released in the Jan 2010.
