Look out boys, here comes trouble:
Wohw, Yes! :
I want a replay:
Goodness Gracious me, that’s terrible:
ok crickets over, put in the 20-20 highlight tape:
Today marked the beginning of the CommonWealth Bank One day series featuring not only Australia, India and Sri Lanka but also the only appearance of Warnie (in Figurine/Doll form that is) during the summer. And to my mind it wasn’t the greatest start. The sound wasn’t that great or clear. I had a lot of traffic to the site especially to my article that susuggested that this years campaign wasn’t up to scratch. There was some great comments with the best coming from Neil:
Mine seems to be speaking a different language. Can’t understand what it is saying, sounds like its been drinking too much VB and wants to sleep it off!!!
But Warnie didn’t take it lying down! He (figurine form) hit back with this comment (come to the site if you are reading this else where and there isn’t a player below):
Boony (Doll) fired right back with this comment for Warnie:
I haven’t blogged on here for a while and I was trying to work out why! Is it that I haven’t had time? Somewhat, there has been Christmas, New Years, School holidays and then me being on holidays travelling. Maybe, but I think its more a point of the way that the campaign had been run this year.
There has been some nice editions to the whole Campaign by adding Desktop Widgets and some extra competitions, but I think they dropped the ball. There has been plenty of advertising on the Cricket. Most of the sight screens around the country have had Warnie’s characture on them and lots of the boundary fences as well.
The problem I see is that my Warnie figurine that has sat on my cupboard since I got it in December has done nothing! Not only that, but I can’t make it do anything either. Lasts years Boony/Beefy dolls where fantastic (and still are. Often I joke to the wife, “what would Boony say about this”, I then press his button and get a comment) in that firstly the random comments went off for things like Melbourne Cup, Queens Birthday, Christmas, New Years, etc. This meant that you always kept Boony and Beefy around to see what they where going to say and when they would say it.
Warnie, to my knowledge, hasn’t said a word yet! The Cricket season seems like it is almost over. The Indian test series is on its last day. The T20 match between the T20 World Champs, India and the One Day World Champs, Australia is on this Friday and then we start the One Days and Warnie Comes to life.
Also the package claims that we are back to having the communications kicked off from signals kicked off from the TV but I am hoping that this isn’t the case or at least it isn’t totally based on the TV interaction as the first dolls where plagued by problems with this interaction but did seem to go off on a timer.
So this years doll/figurine has been the best looking but worst yet. Lets hope they continue the campaign next year but return to the button operation of the Boony/Beefy dolls.
