Cub Films launches with McCann spot for Menulog featuring Snoop Dogg

Cub Films launches with McCann spot for Menulog featuring Snoop Dogg

It’s not every day a new production company launches with a spot that premieres during the biggest footy event of the year, let alone one that features Snoop Dogg himself.


From the minds of McCann creative directors Daniel Miller and Christian Duffy, this playful concept features footy personalities Greg Inglis, Brad Fittler, Ben Hunt, Craig & Johanna Wing, Erin Molan, Jake Trbojevic and Tom Trbojevic singing along to Snoop’s catchy Menulog anthem as they prepare for game day.

Says James Carr, producer, Cub Films: “This project was the culmination of a mammoth amount of work by the teams at McCann, Menulog, here at Cub and our collaborators in LA. We’re really proud of this spot as our first cab off the rank, so to speak, and are excited for what’s to come in 2021.”

Says director Toby Morris: “The whole shoot had a warm and welcoming feel that led to some really fun, endearing performances by some of Australia’s finest footy players. I’m super excited about where this project ended up, and would smash a sausage sizzle in the hizzle with these doggs any day.”
