Dairy Farmers of Canada: Candles
Our objective was to increase sales of milk within a cynical teenage demographic by helping make it more socially acceptable. We wanted to make milk cool. Knowing that traditional 30-second television commercials would be lost on our jaded, media-soaked audience, we created quick, fun, and strangely animated mini-commercials called “Dot Spots” that each highlighted a single health benefit of milk in only five seconds. To date, we have created nearly 200 of these individual Dot Spots, keeping the campaign continually fresh and unexpected.
