With a name like Johnny Vegas, it’s no wonder that this comedian has been in demand for a number of advertising campaigns for various online gambling companies!
In May 2016 it was announced that he was to be the voice of the balls for Costa Bingo and now he’s involved in the marketing for popular online casino, Leo Vegas.
Although Leo the lion is the face of the brand, Johnny certainly complements him in the fun commercials that we are currently seeing on the small screen.
We’ve always felt that Leo was a bit of a mickey take of Foxy but he certainly encourages brand awareness as the front man of the casino. Johnny will simply enhance it.
The commercial itself shows Johnny and Leo at the beginning of their journey as the two brand ambassadors for Leo Vegas. It’s currently being shown on mainstream channels including ITV and Channel 4.
According to a number of sources, this is just the start of a 12-month campaign by the brand and both Johnny and Leo will be the stars of a number of promotions in 2017 / 2018.
The start of the commercials sees Leo stood outside a double-doored trailer on his phone, clearly waiting for someone.
Johnny walks out of the trailer and apologises to Leo before stepping up again to be about the same height. You hear his voiceover saying
Leo Vegas has more mobile casino games than anyone else, so they needed two brand ambassadors.
Two of us means twice the talent….
At this point we see Leo and Johnny in a roaring contest that, as expected, Johnny does not win but he does give it a valiant effort.
