Insights, Strategy & the Idea
The main aim of the video is to showcase the campaign launched for the National Comittee Against Tobacco.
It presents everything that has been done for the campaign and its results.
It features the film "breaking the cycle", the main element of the campaign.
Creative Execution
We decided to use the same tone as in the film "breaking" the cycle" which was cynical and impactful.
To reach that goal we featured a baby smoking a cigarette and used his arms several times to swipe screens.
In addition, the graphic design of the movie is reminiscent of childhood. It's in keeping with our target and our goals, and it brings beauty and poetry to the case.
We broadcast the case on YouTube and sent it to the major news agencies.
Results and Effectiveness
Facebook allowed us to recruit an additional 60% of fans.
On Twitter, the number of CNCT followers has doubled.
Blogs about the subject spread fast.
1,300 graceful broadcasts over more than 17 TV channels, the equivalent of 1,5 million euros of media buying space,
The press seized the phenomenon in more than 25 countries. The number of views exceeded our expectations on YouTube, whereas the visits on the CNCT website has multiplied by a hundred since the launch of the campaign. The whole project led to more than 40,702,120 informed contacts.
Results: People between 15-25 years old were the ones most aware.
