RAHA

Monogamy

Agency: TBWA

Description

HIV infections are rife throughout Africa, and massive effort is expended by governments and NGO’s across the continent in an effort to educate the public about the dangers of unprotected sex. The advertising in this category is often based on ‘scare tactics’ that dwell on the negative outcomes of HIV infection, e.g. social rejection, loneliness, a family left to fend for itself, etc. With this particular advertisement we have taken a slightly lighter approach based on a single amusing line playing on the words ‘monogamy’ and ‘mahogany’; in Kenya virtually everyone speaks quite good English, so the verbal nuance is well understood. Of course, this is a way of drawing attention to a very serious message: “Use a condom for maximum protection”. To maximize the visual effect we actually produced wooden carvings that will also be utilized as POS items.

This professional campaign titled 'Monogamy' was published in Kenya in May, 2013. It was created for the brand: RAHA, by ad agency: TBWA. This OOH Outdoor medium campaign is related to the Health industry and contains 1 media asset. It was submitted about 11 years ago.
