Australia Day 2014
In 2014, Sam announces that after 10 years of grilling and roasting unAustralianism, he is taking a step back. It is therefore the duty of every Australian adult to show the next generation what it means to be Aussie on Australia Day. We call these little sprogs ‘Generation Lamb’.
You won’t be able to miss him. Sam will be on TV in a 60 sec ad across free-to-air and pay TV networks - watch it here.
The TV ads will be supported by panels in shopping centres nationally plus a series of recipe dispensing billboards in selected shopping centres up the Eastern Seaboard
And don’t forget to BBQ Lamb on Australia Day. You know it makes sense.
Lamb Roast 2013
The traditional Lamb roast is a family meal that is forever synonymous with the ‘nurture gene’ and being a mum. It’s the one meal we all return home for, because it’s just too hard or too time consuming for us to cook ourselves – and Mum makes it look so easy!
Because mini-Lamb roasts are so easy to cook that literally anyone can do it, this also means that: ‘Now anyone can cook like mum’ with an Easy Lamb Roast.
This new promotion will include:
Australia Day 2013
After being hit on the head by a cricket ball, Sam has been suffering from Lambnesia.
Lambnesia is a condition that makes you forget your Australian identity, allowing unAustralian thoughts to enter your brain.
In his new TV commercial, Sam makes it his mission to raise awareness of this most unAustralian condition. His solution: The National Lambnesia Test, an online game that tests your knowledge of Australian culture. The game lets you know how unAustralian you really are – and how much lamb you need to eat to be in chop shape on Australia Day.
This new campaign, launching on the 10th of January, is supported by new point of sale material including posters, pack stickers, a mobile, a window decal and a wobbler.
The TV commercial will be airing in metro cities, and this will also be supported by radio, PR, digital and social media activities.
Spring Lamb 2012
The new Spring Lamb 2012 campaign was out from 1st September, bringing together experts in fashion and cuisine - designer Leona Edmiston and celebrity chef Ben O'Donoghue - to convince consumers that Lamb is the hottest ingredient for the season.
Tapping into the Spring fashion theme, when fashion and spring racing is in the air, the campaign also coincides with the traditional peak in lamb supply.
The 2012 campaign builds on the success of the fashion inspired spring campaigns from previous years, with Leona and Ben's' 'collamboration' producing a fashion-themed recipe magazine - Chop 'til you drop. 2.4 million copies will be distributed through independent retailers and participating supermarkets nationally. It will also be inserted into key publications such as Woman's Day and Australian Women's Weekly.
Alongside this, a new television commercial aired from September 16th which showcases Edmiston and O'Donoghue 'collamborating' together to create their spring recipe collection.
Presence at point of purchase will also feature as part of the campaign, including stickers and posters.
The campaign ran through to mid-October.

- A TV commercial: from the 15th of April in metropolitan and regional areas
- A new point of sale suite: posters, pack stickers, wobblers and a recipe booklet

Australia Day 2012
After eight years battling all things unAustralian, Sam Kekovich returns with his annual Address to the Nation.
Sam Kekovich's address and videoclip
In today’s digital age, “good old-fashioned diplambacy” is no longer enough to get Sam’s message to the masses, particularly the “popular culture-obsessed youth”. In his imminent Address to the Nation, Sam will reveal how popular culture has caused “unAustralianism to go viral”:
Keeping true to his word, Sam will start the ‘chopular culture’ movement by releasing his debut music video in the lead up to Australia Day. Naturally, Sam’s cover song is about a barbie on Australia Day. The obvious choice? A rendition of 90s pop-sensation, Barbie Girl.
