Chicken

Description

Tool Director Harry Cocciolo and Nickelodeon Creative Advertising collaborate to deliver an urban twist on the age-old joke "Why did the chicken cross the road?" for Nickelodeon. This time around it's a joke with a sobering punch-line. As cell phones, mp3 players and text messaging become greater distractions to pedestrians and drivers alike, Nickelodeon has teamed up with Safe Kids USA to launch a new campaign aimed at making kids aware of the dangers of technological distractions. Chicken opens with a cool hen strutting down a city street as it pumps the latest jam in its headphones. When the bird fails to notice the "Don't Walk" sign flashing at the intersection, it continues to cross into oncoming traffic and meets a "fowl" demise. The message is clear and humorously executed by Cocciolo. It doesn't matter why the chicken crosses the road, what truly matters is that its paying attention. So when walking in the city, take off your headphones, stop texting while walking and get off your phone. Paying attention saves lives.

This professional campaign titled 'Chicken' was published in United States in August, 2009. It was created for the brands: Nickelodeon and Safe Kids, . This Film medium campaign is related to the Media industry and contains 1 media asset. It was submitted about 13 years ago.
