Breast Buffer

Agency: Grey


Women in India spend twice as many hours as men, watching content online. But given the data speeds on mobile devices in India, there is evidently some downtime while watching video content. In fact, ALTBalaji’s subscribers stare at the buffering symbol for an average of 18 seconds per episode. Which means, their entire women subscriber base of 1.2 million stares at the buffering symbol for approximately 360,000 minutes a day. So, could we turn this downtime into a useful reminder for breast self-examination?
ALTBalaji replaced its regular buffering symbol with the simple, yet unique ‘Breast Buffer’ symbol. So, every time the content buffered, our new 'Breast Buffer' symbol popped up as a personal and discreet reminder. The message next to the symbol, encouraged women to check themselves for breast cancer. The symbol was surprising, unmissable and informative. Something our viewers noticed and engaged with in huge numbers.

This professional campaign titled 'Breast Buffer' was published in India in April, 2019. It was created for the brand: ALTBalaji, by ad agency: Grey. This Digital medium campaign is related to the Public Interest, NGO industry and contains 1 media asset. It was submitted about 4 years ago.
