JWT Brazil, the agency responsible for the “91 Rock Clock” progressive wake-up app and turning Brazilian teen mag Capricho into an iPhone amplifier for Coca-Cola FM has a new project raising breast cancer awareness for A.C. Camargo Cancer Center.
Dubbed the “Anti Cancer Paste Up,” the project uses the graffiti and tagging around Sao Paulo to raise awareness for breast cancer. The narrator of the spot remarks that everyone always assumes the graffiti was done by male artists. So JWT used painted posters over the graffiti of several artists, in each case pasting over an image of a breast with a post-mastectomy image, in an attempt to spread the message that breast cancer “is a real problem and…can happen to anyone.” The WPP-owned agency hopes that the “youthful language” of graffiti can help them reach young women and convince them to get breast exams that can result in a 90% treatment success rate. It’s the kind of innovative and unusual approach we’ve come to expect from JWT, and should turn some heads to raise awareness of an issue that’s much too easy to ignore. Credits after the jump.
