Discover the first brothel for cats

GAIA: Discover the first brothel for cats

This new campaign of the Belgian GAIA is about the fact that too many cats end up in a shelter. 30.000 a year in Belgium.
Therefore, the organization comes with a world premiere: a brothel for cats. In reality it is an animated projection of typical window brothels in the red light district

An animation that comes to life in front of unsuspecting passers-by: “Cats have too many sex partners. Avoid unwanted kittens, let your cat neutered.”
The comparison of pregnancy and brothels is not quite right. It is at best a metaphor for wild sex life with a lot of changing contacts.

The projection will take place every evening between 17h and 21h30, from January 28 to February 1, 2014, on the southern facade of the Crowne Plaza in Brussels. Digital surfers can also walk through the red light district of the cats on the Gaia website.

Projected text on the Crowne Plaza: “Cats have too many sex partners. Avoid unwanted kittens, let your cat spayed.”

La Poule au Pot

Posted by Marc van Gurp | 14-04-2012 22:30 | Category: Animal rights


This is the new campaign from GAIA, the Belgium animal rights organization. GAIA stands for Global Action in the Interest of Animals.
The campaign is a call to all supermarkets and manufacturers. The organization wants them not to use eggs from battery hens in the production of sauces, biscuits, pasta, ice cream etc.
Tagline: “Are you sure you do not eat eggs from battery hens?”
(”Êtes-vous certain de ne pas manger d’œufs de batterie?”

The campaign contains two items, a print part and an online part. In both a visual is used to express how small a battery cage is.
A jar of mayonnaise filled with a chicken is used on the posters and magazine ad.
More surprising is the campaign website. It’s your screen which is just as large as a battery cage.

Foie gras, voer voor sadisten

De kerstdagen komen er weer aan en dan is het de tijd dat we aangesproken worden op ons gedrag. In dit geval ons eetgedrag.
De Belgische dierenrechtenorganisatie Gaia start woensdag 15 december met een anti-foie gras campagne en doet dit met niet mis te verstane beelden.

Branding a time-bound campaign, Forest & Bird did it.

It’s not new but it is not often used: branding for a time-bound campaign. The kind of branding used for temporary purpose. Forest & Bird did it recently for their Love Nature: Vote 2014 campaign. New Zealand’s largest independent conservation organisation wanted nature back on the political agenda. The future…
