Hong Kong Rugby Sevens 2011 - Game On

So how do the All-Reds stack up against the rugby champions? Add a little personal service and they hold their own on the rugby pitch.

Cathay Pacific’s television commercial for this year’s Cathay Pacific/Credit Suisse Hong Kong Sevens features real flight attendants in a battle against very real rugby players. It was filmed over two and half days and nights in the rain and on the coldest days of the year – around 5°C.

“We were very pleased to collaborate with Nick Livesey at RSA Asia,” says Thierry Halbroth, executive creative director of McCann’s Cathay Pacific Central Team. “His action-movie experience really helped us bring the idea of this match alivewhile reinforcing the Cathay Pacific brand attribute of professional staff always willing to go the extra mile. We’re delighted with the outcome and believe the people will really enjoy it.”
