Coopertax: Don’t Mix, 3

Alcohol and Driving

Official figures attribute Brazil with one of the highest rates of traffic accident deaths in the world, and the most shocking fact is that alcohol is a factor in 75% of fatal accidents. With the objective creating awareness among motorists about the risks of drinking and driving, we developed a direct and objective institutional campaign, with an uncommon approach, which stands out among all the dramatic language of traditional campaigns that motorists tend to ignore nowadays.

The dots don't connect. I will crash trying to decipher the message.

The ads are creative and attractive, fulfill its role to convey the message that direction and alcohol do not mix, at least here in Brazil, noting that the target is are Brazilians. Some comments I am not pleased by the fact that criticism is not justified, it is rare to see an advertisement praising the other, this is wrong.

These ads are way too forced. The idea of two things that don't mix is okay I guess, but it fails somewhere, maybe it's the execution.

@Eduardo Cruz - This campaing does not have any elements or cultural aspects that are exclusive to Brazil. I'm brazillian and I agree with most of the comments: it's fresh but not brilliant.
