Deutscher Tierschutzbund: Put yourself in a pig's place

Ouch! Animals feel pain, just like people do. That’s why agency Frese & Wolff show people in situations where they are exposed to the same torment and torture as animals are.
Campaign is made for the Deutscher Tierschutzbund e. V. (German Animal Protection Federation).

Video: “Fühl Dich wie ein Schwein” / “Feel like a pig”

Personally, I’m not a fan of this campaign:

@Tom I see pain in the print ads brought with a familiar communication technique, changing roles. For me the nudity isn’t sexualization of the cause. (in the print ads).
I see fragility.

My complaint is that the video doesn’t fit in that campaign strategy. The video do have the sexualisation. For that the campaign in total isn’t consequent.

I dunno, Marc. I find the models and the poses pretty self-consciously sexual. And their “pained” reactions are not very believable. I see no fragility there, just an AD who wanted to work with (and painstakingly photoshop) naked people.

But why argue? I’d rather be having a drink with you! Proost!

I’d be worried less about the specifics of the image and the marketing, and more about the MESSAGE, which is to leave the animals alone!  I don’t know you, but are you doing that, or just complaining about a photo?

Is this eating disorder ad too sexy?

It’s a serious question. This woman has the typical idealized body of a model, and despite the scary body painting, the portrayal is undeniably drawing attention to her curves and bare skin. When I think about eating disorders, I try to imagine looking in the mirror and seeing a funhouse…
