Insights, Strategy & the Idea
We believe in miracles. We even bore witness to them in the absence of a dog collar.
Research carried out by the Client confirmed 60% of our consumers were technically homeless and were in fact cared for by people in the neighbourhood.
Motivated by an insight 82% of the consumers ate home prepared food but their intake of protein, calcium, fibre and was low leading to disorders which left them vulnerable to disease and afflicted with ailments.
Unbeknown to the carers suffering was taking place at their own hands.
We needed to act - An estimated 55% of dog owners in Thailand believed that feeding their dogs ‘people-food’ was the best way of caring for a beloved animal!
We needed to disrupt a behaviour often born out of love, transform lives and educate people over the 5 Signs of Good Health.
Creative Execution
Olive, the dog was the star. A one minute TV testimonial spot of the owner where she spoke of the heartache she felt seeing Olive shed fur and find medication unsuccessful that we were able to demonstrate the transformation.
Crucially we endeared Olive to the nation by casting Olive in popular TV drama programs.
On our website people shared their stories of their transformed healthy dogs. There they filled in on-line diaries which made it easy to capture the timeline of transformations and make the evidence shareable across platforms.
Facebook socialized the news and proved that ‘miracles’ were happening up and down the country with new ‘5 signs in 6 weeks’ stories, everyday.
Finally the client announced they would help find newly transformed homeless dogs with a caring owner who would maintain the health of the animal for the rest of their lives. We aired content on TV showing such dogs and how to reach out to them was inserted within prime-time appointment programming.
