Describe the objective of the promotion.
The objective was to sell as many ‘pills’ as possible in order to help fund the diagnosis and treatment of thousands of forgotten sick people in developing countries. In order to do so, ‘Other-people’s-pain pills’ would need to be sold in pharmacies throughout Spain. We created a campaign featuring audiovisuals (TV, cinema and Internet), press, street furniture poster advertising, a comprehensive and interactive website, direct marketing to pharmacists, social network apps… with the aim of spreading other people’s pain and turning it into an epidemic.

Describe how the promotion developed from concept to implementation.
‘Other-people’s-pain pills’ are a symbol of the fight against forgotten illnesses. They are packs of 6 sugar-free sweets, sold exclusively at pharmacies for €1, which goes towards diagnosing and treating forgotten illnesses in developing countries.

Explain why the method of promotion was most relevant to the product or service.
When something hurts, you take a pill and the pain goes away. But what happens when the pain you are suffering is not your own, but someone else’s, when what you need is to relieve other people’s suffering.

Describe the success of the promotion with both client and consumer including some quantifiable results.
To date, more than 15,000 pharmacies have got involved with the project. The YouTube channel has produced over 500,000 views, we have 106,000 friends on Facebook and 4,000 followers on Twitter, and more than 600,000 visits to the website. So far, more than 3,000,000 packs have been sold and they are amongst the 10 top-selling ‘medicines’ in Spain. With the money raised, 11,000 people with HIV in Zimbabwe will receive treatment for one year and funding has been provided for a project which, in 2010, tested 5,500 people for Chagas disease in Bolivia. In Spain, other people’s suffering is curable at the chemist.
