Describe the challenges and key objectives
We intend to connect with the audience by talking to them about Plan B in the same way they talk about sex. We want to be playful and audacious and leverage their misconceptions about being invincible and not at risk of an unwanted pregnancy (I just forgot one pill, he pulled out, condom slipped, etc). We’ll acknowledge that having fun sexually and taking risks is part of their lifestyle but that a possible disaster (unwanted pregnancy) will be completely avoided thanks to plan B.

Describe the brief from the client
We’re selling Plan B, the only morning after pill sold in Canada. Swallowed within 72 hours after being exposed to unprotected sex, it prevents pregnancy by doing one of three things: 1. Temporarily stops the release of an egg from the ovary; ] 2. Prevents fertilization; 3. Prevents a fertilised egg from attaching to the uterus. Plan B is available in every pharmacy.
