Reversing drink driving

Youtube Video

Who it's for: The New Zealand Transport Agency, by Clemenger BBDO Wellington and PRODIGY director Matt Palmer

Why we like it: It's like real life, only backwards. Strangely, messing with accepted chronology and going for the good old film it in reverse approach always seems to be remarkably captivating (maybe it's that scary, ominous sound of noise in reverse that accompanies the visuals). There's also just one line of dialogue: 'If you drink then drive, you're a bloody criminal'. Simple, visual and effective.
