Parkinson’s Victoria

Skill Tester

Agency: DDB


The slowness, rigidness and shaking limbs often associated with Parkinson’s Disease can make simple, everyday tasks virtually impossible. For non-sufferers it’s difficult to comprehend an existence where opening a carton of milk or using a telephone is an impossible task. DDB/Rapp, Melbourne helped people experience this complete lack of physical control for themselves by filling arcade style skill-testers with everyday objects. The agency then placed them around Melbourne, collecting $1 coins to fund help Parkinson’s Victoria’s research at the same time. In the first 12 hours over $5000 was collected.

This professional campaign titled 'Skill Tester' was published in Australia in September, 2009. It was created for the brand: Parkinson’s Victoria, by ad agency: DDB. This Ambient medium campaign is related to the Public Interest, NGO industry and contains 1 media asset. It was submitted almost 13 years ago.
