Credits & Description

The insight into the Vodafone RED âBallâ ad is that consumers want to be able to connect with the ones that matter to them for as long as they want. Directed by Kevin Thomas, the ad follows a boy who is inseparable from his one big love â his football. Taking it everywhere, even places he most definitely shouldnât, the ad plays on the idea that good things should never come to an end, dramatising the consumer benefit of endless calls and texts. The Shazam-enabled ad allows people to download the classic track âGive Him a Ball and a Yard of Grassâ from the 80s Irish band The Sultans of Ping FC.
