Saatchi & Saatchi NZ, Tui Offer Cricket Fans Chance to ‘Catch a Million’


Okay, so we’ll start this one by admitting we have no idea what cricket is all about, but Saatchi and Saatchi New Zealand are behind a new campaign for Tui beer, called “Catch A Million,” giving fans the opportunity to win their share of one million dollars.

Fans can win $100,000 by making a one-handed grab in the stands while wearing a special orange Tui t-shirt. So far the campaign has been a big success, says William Papesch, Tui marketing manager, with “a sea of Tui orange at grounds and the first one-handed winner, Michael Morton in Hamilton on Jan 8th.” The promotion is  a pretty clever way to get a bunch of people to advertise your product for free, even if it comes with a potentially hefty price tag. Now if only someone could explain the rules of cricket to us… Credits and footage of the first winning catch after the jump.
