Headache Lights

Agency: BBDO


Aspirin ads were wrapped on the backs of buses all around the city of Toronto. The ads used brake lights to exaggerate the pain caused by headaches. When the buses braked, the lights lit up to highlight the throbbing pain. As Toronto is one of the worst cities for traffic, the message especially hit home for commuters stuck behind these buses.

This professional campaign titled 'Headache Lights' was published in Canada in December, 2011. It was created for the brand: Aspirin, by ad agency: BBDO. This Outdoor medium campaign is related to the Pharmaceutical industry and contains 1 media asset. It was submitted over 10 years ago.
