Awards: Number 1 Song, Number 1 on Itunes
We were asked to create a song rallying New Zealand behind the mighty All Blacks as they attempted something never before achieved; back to back Rugby World Cup Victories.
The song features everyone from the Flight of the Conchords to Lorde, Broods and The Naked and Famous. It even has a breakdown with living legend Dave Dobbyn cursing England, France, Ireland and Australia’s World Cup Hopes. It obviously worked as The All Blacks were victorious.
Team Ball Player Thing served to remind the team that even though winning the RWC was important, together with New Zealand they could achieve something even more significant.As a result of raising over $250,000 through the song kiwi scientists are on the verge of curing late infantile batton disease.
