The Prostate Czech, Branko

Prostate Cancer Foundation:  The Prostate Czech, Branko



A Man. A Cause. A Finger. He moves like a heavy Central European fog: dense, mysterious, yet insistent.
It is whispered that he hails from Kladno, a proud Czech Republic city steeped in masculine traditions of steel mills and mining. Witnesses say he travels light, armed with latex gloves, a tracksuit, and very little patience. His methods? Unorthodox. His touch? Unforgiving. So contact your family doctor and get checked before you get Czeched.

Referring to the trailer:

I don't know how to begin the praises…

:: brilliant strategy, using humor to deflect this delicate and serious matter – a man's attitude towards his manhood and the fact it's one of the most deadly of the cancers which exist.

:: using pun for "check" and building a character that reflects all the fears behind the disease. The "what if"...

:: the eastern bloc font, the sign-off screen art, the presentation as a public awareness TV ad from the 70’s, and the music are right on.

:: logo – a smart use of the index finger as both describing the check (the procedure) as well as a warning sign, to get it attended.

:: the copy - hilarious - feels like Borat clips...

Well thought out and executed.
Over all - The best campaign I've seen for quite some time.
