Ambient Execution Description
We've created these top-trumps style cards, Top Drunks, to distribute to customers as an anti drink-drive measure. Handed out by waiters, the cards compare the number of victims, speed and blood alcohol level of the drivers in car accidents. The "top trump" card is the Super-Taxi card, for which there are no victims.Ô Fiô Bar wanted to encourage a more responsible attitude of its customers. But, bringing this topic to the bar table can be pretty boring. So we invented a new and different way to promote responsible driving. We created a game called Top Drunks. It was similar to Top Trumps. But, instead of cars, the cards represented car crashes. Besides, instead of cars attributes, the numbers reflected the consequences of driving drunk, such as deaths, victims, speed and driver’s blood alcohol level at the time of the accident. The Top Trump Card, the best one in the game, was actually a Taxi. Because, it’s always the best choice for those who drink. The card had the number of the nearest taxi company, so people could call one to pick them up.It was a different way to bring this topic to the table. And the bizarre combination of a game with such a tragic subject was the key to pass our message through: “Don’t let tragedy be part of your fun. Don’t drink and drive.”. We impacted an average of 50 people per day during the campaign, which ran for a month. The numbers of taxis called from the bar increased by 20% (only the taxi that we informed the phone number in the card). And the game was extensively shared in social networks, along with the message.
