The campaign features brand ambassadors such as British cyclist Chris Hoy, British swimmer Liam Tancock and U.S. sprinter Tyson Gay.

A total of 35 ads were created by Dazzleship and feature the different Lego Team GB figures "smiling above a strapline wishing the different athletes good luck." The figures range from boxers to gymnasts to swimmers (CAMPAIGNLIVE.co.uk, 7/24).
