This anti-poaching campaign from Lowe, Singapore, is one of those times.
Calling out “fashionable” people for creating a demand for poaching threatened animals is a powerful statement. It may not influence the more out-of-touch consumers directly, but it does provide social pressure in the form of making others aware of the connection between luxury goods and disappearing exotic animals. It’s a shock ad, but the good kind, because causing the general public to reaffirm their disgust at the trade in certain animal products helps create a stigma. And since most “mainstream” people despise the rich and spoiled anyway, it’s not a hard sell.
