The US election might be over, but expect to see a new campaign video in your social feeds over the next couple of days.
A campaign video that calls for Sonia Kruger to win the Gold Logie.
Launched on The Today Show‘s social media channels and voiced (in an American accent) by Kruger’s Today Extra co-host David Campbell, the tongue-in-cheek clip calls for viewers to “right one of Australia’s wrongs and make advertorial television great again.
“Vote for Sonia Kruger.”
The video, posted this afternoon, pokes fun at the fact that Kruger is yet to have won a Logie (of any colour) despite a long, varied career on the small screen.
“She’s hosted every major prime-time show, some of which even rated,” Campbell says.
“Presenting more than 4,000,632 hours of national television, Sonia Kruger puts the ‘over’ into ‘[over]exposed’. And she needs a Logie.”
There are also digs at former winners Karl Stefanovic and Scott Cam – “almost anyone can win a Logie” – as well as Kruger’s sartorial selection for last year’s event:
“Even going dressed as a Logie didn’t help her bring one home. Mainly because she wasn’t nominated.”
