Saatchi & Saatchi Shanghai Introduces Mutesic for VICE

Saatchi & Saatchi Shanghai is helping VICE introduce Mutesic in China. Mutesic is a mobile phone add-on that allows users to enjoy their music on any player while helping to keep them safe and aware while on the road by syncing with their GPS and lowering the volume when they approach busy intersections.

To introduce Mutesic, Saatchi & Saatchi chose to show the add-on in action. In the 1:50 video above, you can see a young man enjoying Pharell’s international hit “Happy” while walking. As he approaches a busy intersection, the music automatically decreases in volume, allowing him to hear ambient warning sounds. The spot concludes by reminding viewers that Mutesic can’t prevent all types of accidents and that “…you still need to pay attention.”
