BBH London creative director’s Sam Oliver and Shish Patel commented: “It’s not a very PC thing to say these days but betting is fun. When not taken to excess of course. It’s exciting, it’s social and it’s full of interesting characters. Ladbrokes has been around for over a hundred years and knows the betting man better than anyone. We wanted to show that in the work and to speak out for all of us who like a flutter.”
