It’s the ongoing debate about shockvertising: does is work? The consensus is that it can work, but only in the short term.
And this new campaign from the Learn For Life Foundation of Western Australia is quite striking within the genre.
In this campaign video you see a few school runaways being blown up on the beach.
“This is what happens when you slack off. Stay in school.”
Go to school or die is an absurd choice. So absurd that it has been viewed 470,000 times on YouTube. In one day! And with a lot of thumbs up.
Is it a shock that keeps children in school? Or is there something new on YouTube next week to talk about?
I guess we will never get an answer to the first question. The answer to the second question is known.
Thanks Martijn Oostra!
