What happened to BK's 50+ videos we were promised? We got 14 and now already a new sponsor is on board. Priceline with Willian Shatner in cartoon form! Too bad they scrimped on the cost as its the same Shatner punchline for all 3 of the videos so far. It is interesting that BK did not continue the sponsorship as the fit was perfect for BK. Priceline seems less of a fit. But I guess everyone loves half price hotels.
Rexona Australia have launched a new TV show called Australia's Greatest Athlete. This is not sponsorship of the show but the complete funding of the show from the initial concept.
