    The Aldi Kids Rugby Panel – Boys & Girls

    The Lowdown:

    Aldi want to get more kids involved in rugby, through programs like Aldi Play Rugby. So this Six Nations, advertising agency Boys & Girls decided to really get kids involved in rugby, by creating a rugby TV programme for kids…starring kids…shot live…over eight weeks. Sure, what could possibly go wrong…

    Hosted by Barry Murphy, The Aldi Kids Rugby Panel saw Aldi broadcast a total of twenty live ads over the course of the Six Nations. Every matchday, Barry was joined in-studio by three expert panellists; Donncha (7), Dylan (8) & Charlotte (9) and out-and-about was roving reporter, Charlie (9).

    There were highs, there were lows, there were tears, there were tantrums – but once the creatives got themselves together, there was a mammoth campaign that got more than just the kids talking.
