    ‘Cricket fever’ takes over in Prime Video’s first ICC World Cup campaign

    As the new home of ICC World Cup Cricket in Australia, Prime Video is kicking off its new ad campaign for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup featuring Usman Khawaja. 

    The creative, by Leo Burnett Australia, dramatises the way Cricket Fever can take hold of a nation, spreading excitement – game by game, fan by fan, until everyone gets caught up in the event. The film follows Khawaja as he realises the fever has taken hold of his own street.


    It aims to differentiate from the category and connect with cricket lovers through a shared fanaticism of the sport; cricket references abound for casual and superfans alike.

    The campaign will run across TV, BVOD, YouTube, social, OLV, and owned channels.
