Australian Open Commercial
 
I sure hope that next year, Australian Open can come up with a new commercial other than that annoying one that came on every 2 minutes: "I wanna know where you go when your gone". They had the same one last year too. I put it on mute each time.

Agreed. That music is terrible.

Al Czervik 01-27-2013 06:00 PM

Yeah, that is one thing this board can agree on. Melbourne advertising funds must be running low.

It is getting on my nerves.

2 year old commercial played ad nauseam, cant afford to make a new one? Didnt Melbourn have anything better than couple of women in mirrors and pedestrians in the streets?

I was thinking the same thing...the recessions must have really hurt them hard. They have one chance each year to showcase themselves on a global scale and they play the same frickin commercial???

Lol. Melbourne, home to the following annual events:

Formula One Grand Prix
Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix
AFL Grand Final
Melbourne Cup
Boxing Day test match
ISAF World Cup Sailing
Melbourne Ironman, 1 of 7 legs in the world
Rip Curl Pro Bells Beach, Bells Beach being one of the best surf beaches in the world.

Then throw in the AO, then throw in all the other one off events such as the Presidents Cup in 2012, the FINA World Swimming Championships in 2007, the World Cycling Championships in 2010 and everything else, and quite frankly, you have no idea.

Melbourne has been voted the sporting capital of the world numerous times and by more than one org. Link:

So pardon Melbourne if it has to budget a bit. Recently made news that it forks out 30 million a year just to host the F1 GP, but according to Bernie Ecclestone, that's about right so go figure.

I like the commercial and the music. It has pretty pictures and the music relaxes me and puts me to sleep. So many more objectionable commercials around.

Best thread I've seen in months! I've been ranting about this commercial since the tournament started, but no one else I force to watch tennis with me seemed to remember it.

Whatever you say, man. We just want you to do as all a favor and pull some strings so that we don't have to watch that commercial anymore.

Not what I say mate, it's fact. Google it, better yet, click the link I posted.

The commercials I don't think is Melbourne's doing anyway, not sure if it's funded by public money, more likely to be Tennis Australia (yes Melbourne based) in conjunction with it's international agencies.

Those commercials wouldn't be directed at the tennis fan anyway, tennis fans know the AO is on. I imagine it's directed at the mainstream who would have no idea it's the same commercial 2 years running.
