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.

Film advertisment created by Due North, Canada for Dairy Farmers of Canada, within the category: Non-Alcoholic Drinks.

They've created nearly 200?!? Well, I am glad Ivan didn't post all of them.

These are semi fun, more appropriate for children than teenagers who watch the Jersey Shore, and a little too quick for me. And what are these health benefits that are being highlighted? I can't tell from these dot spots.
