Insights, Strategy & the Idea
Objectives: to impact adults at a socioeconomic status level so that they may understand that in this time of cold, it´s good to start preventing and reinforcing their defenses with Redoxon. The client had a very limited budget and asked us to advertise in the weather segment, with a traditional format used by most other brands. Instead of creating the typical intro to the weather segment, we decided to become a part of it, to impact the consumers and surprise them in the middle of the television programing, through a weather girl´s sneeze and a sign in the bottom of the screen that reads: 'In this cold time, take Redoxon'. This action impacted more than 200,000 people (newscast ratings) communicating the importance of reinforcing their defenses in a season where temperatures drop considerably.

Creative Execution
We decided to become a part of the weather segment through a simple action. The weather girl starts her segment giving the forecast and at a given moment, without previous notice, she sneezes towards the weather icons on the map dispersing them. When this happens, a sign that reads: 'In this cold time, take Redoxon', appears in the lower part of the screen.

Results and Effectiveness
A sneeze in several weather segments was enough to communicate to over 200,000 people (newscast ratings) the importance of reinforcing their defenses in winter.
