Almost one in three New Zealand adults aged 15 years and over are obese as well as one in nine children aged two to 14 years, and now Sealord is taking a stand to reduce those rates. It’s on a mission to make New Zealand healthier in a new brand platform, by Ogilvy & Mather, which kicks off with a story about a father and daughter learning to swim.
A new anti-obesity campaign released by Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta has gone nuts on the internet for its portrayal of a pair of parents driving their child to an early grave by enabling his poor eating habits. The spot, shot in reverse chronology, moves from a scene of the son in the hospital through various key events that link to the moment. As the narrative progresses, it soon becomes evident that the parents have been integrally involved in not only creating the son’s bad eating habits but also in facilitating them.
