Aussies finally find their Pedigree

Aussie cricket fans may be considering switching to the Official Beer of England following our spirited come back on the first day of the first Test at Trent Bridge in Nottingham.


Pedi, the Pedigree pint mascot was on hand to cheer supporters during the dramatic opening day and this group of Merv Hughes lookalikes finally found their history instead of their previous!


Pedigree’s Twitter campaign to find the best sledging and England Aussie banter was off to a great start on #PedigreeBanter – with notable Tweets such as: The crowd is chanting ‘where’s your captain gone’, ‘More leaves than Sherwood Forest Tuffers’ and ‘Is this the worst Aussie team since Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman?’ were among the first on the sledging score sheet.


Tom Lenihan, Marston’s Assistant Brand Manager added: “The best banter appearing in the feed will win beer for a year so there’s plenty of time to give The Ashes your own spin and beat the Aussies at their own game.”
