Goodpitch: What Would Jesus Do?

 TV   AUSTRALIA    October 15, 2018 16:12's really never a good time to talk about organ donation. That's the insight that inspired Revolver/Will O'Rourke writer/director Richard Bullock to go all in and cast Jesus Christ as the lead for his latest short film. No doubt this will create some heated discussion. And that's exactly the point of it all. To get people to talk about organ donation. Despite having very successful outcomes for Organ transplant, Australia has relatively low levels of donor registration compared to other countries. This phenomenon has nothing to do with a willingness to donate and more to do with a unique set of issues found in Australia. In fact 80% of Australians say they will donate but only 34% are on the registry. The complexity of this needed to be explained as well as a need for people to talk about the issue with their loved ones. One of the key requirements for becoming a donor is in fact talking to your family about becoming a donor. If people do not know the wishes of their loved ones 50% of families will say no.

The commercial takes a Halloween-themed look at the brand's longstanding irresistibility storyline to show what life (or death) is like when you're a delicious piece of chocolate. Along with the full-length spot, a :06 second version, "Eaten," will also run online.

Vicks: One in a Million

 TV   INDIA    October 13, 2018 08:46, a brand synonymous with family and care, has launched the second edition of Vicks #TouchOfCare, its heart-warming campaign that went viral last year. 'Vicks - One in a Million' is yet another inspiring story, this time of Nisha, a young girl who has Ichthyosis, a genetic skin condition. The transformation of Nisha due to the love and care provided by her adoptive parents Aloma and David Lobo, forms the crux of this digital video. The second campaign continues to spread the idea that 'Every Child Deserves the touch of Care'. Created by Publicis Singapore, the story is a first-person narrative by Nisha, an orphaned girl with Ichthyosis who was abandoned by her biological parents when she was just two weeks old. Her life was transformed when she was adopted by Aloma and David Lobo, who despite having children of their own, gave Nisha a family which showered her with unconditional love and the #TouchOfCare. The film gracefully captures Nisha's story as she sails through the challenges and complexities of life, with her mother and a family at her side. It beautifully depicts how Nisha, who is an extraordinary girl, leads an ordinary, regular life - one of hopes, dreams and challenges - and how Aloma has brought her up in a way that is no different from anyone else.

 TV   THAILAND    October 11, 2018 11:43 (Edited: October 11, 2018 22:43) Burnett Bangkok has released a new humorous campaign for Thailand insurance brokers TQM. TQM is the largest and oldest insurance broker in Thailand, however most people today don't trust brokers. So, 'trust' became the most important aspect TQM needed to address, especially when the company's primary sales channel is through telephone sales. People usually reject calls from telephone sales calls, so this communication had to reduce this bias. In addition, because people don't trust advertising, Leo Burnett Bangkok decided to use an anti-advertising approach for this campaign by revealing all the facts that people want to know with our "Frank Talk" online ad. The campaign stars one of TQM's real employees who talks openly about who TQM is and what he is here to sell. Through honesty he tells the audience about what his company can do to help them. The aim is to leave consumers with the feeling that TQM is a group of real people trying to do their best, to provide good services and the best benefits to their customers.
