Operation Smile, The Brandan documentary

We had this sent in by the guys over Saatchi & Saatchi Cape town. It documents the story of four year old, Brandan Aries who was born with a cleft lip, and how, with the help of Operation smile, he was able to not only reclaim his childhood but his dignity. Another nail in the coffin of the stigma- that advertising agencies strive to mould a capitalistic world of botox lips and bad shoes. Saatchi & Saatchi has become an industry leader in proving just this, see more of their work here.

Saatchi Cape Town Documents the Chronicles of how 90 Minutes Can Change a Child’s Life

Stunt launches "Frank"

FoxP2 sent through this little gem along with a great campaign. A stunt to launch a new life investment company called Frank. Frank's approach is well...Frank- you die, we pay. Simple. Great. Check out the Youtube links for the rest of the campaign, some quality stuff. Would have been cooler if he didn't have the saftey harness though.

Cape Town, 9 November, 2010 – Direct life investment company Frank.net launches today, backed by a multi million rand ad campaign, with a straight talking, ‘you die we pay’ approach, which is set to change the way people think about buying life insurance, investments and health insurance.

True to the brand, FRANK launched with a launch event and daredevil stunt in Cape Town today at the forecourt of the newly refurbished Cape Town Station, featuring an aerial skywalker who walked a tightrope between two cranes 60 metres high, in 35km winds and pouring rain, adding to the drama of the stunt, while a helicopter flew overhead with a banner saying “If he dies, we pay.” The stunt, which was conceptualised by FOXP2 and implemented by the company’s PR agency Tin Can, is aimed at creating viral talkability and adding momentum to the overall advertising campaign.
