There are certain jobs that come with clear downsides: postal workers have lots of outdoor time but early hours; teachers get long holidays but, y'know, kids; bankers and referees have big power but are universally hated...
Taking this example and wonderfully using it to exemplify the perfection of their partnership are Westpac and the NRL; the latest spot from DDB Sydney promoting the former's sponsorship of the latter a flamboyant ode to condemnation.
