SOS Dettes: Send your own SOS distress signal

Send your own SOS distress signal. Text SOS to 888999.

The campaign aims to emphasize the urgency to act to counter the indebtedness spiral. To launch this campaign, the En Masse collective has painted a giant cartoon strip (54ft x 6ft) on the St-Laurent Boulevard, on July 7th. The story of the main “Strangled” character from previous campaign "Debt hurts" thus continues in a cartoon strip. The journey of the main character takes place in an underwater environment, a great classic easy to understand, which also reminds clearly the name of SOS Dettes. The use of a cartoon strip as a media is justified in many ways: the impact of the image per se, the cartoonist’s creativity and the perception of the fine Art for this kind of advertising campaign.

It looks cool, but to say that creativity and art justify the use of a cartoon strip makes no sense.
