Anti Drink-Driving Campaign : Studio71 / TF1

An award winning campaign with an app, linked to Facebook in France, that delivered over 38,000 personalised videos over the Christmas/New Year season.

The Brief

Young adults form a significant proportion of those involved in road traffic accidents during the festive season. The objective of the 2017 campaign was to make this group more aware of the dangers of drink-driving whilst promoting the MMA brand. The client brief was for a campaign with an informal and accessible tone of voice relevant to this specific audience and to appear as different as possible from traditional public service communications. The creative approach was inspired by the insight that this kind of message is better received when shared by friends or relatives.


Studio 71 designed their campaign to utilise the power of Adgile Pro, especially the ability to create multiple versions of adverts rapidly. Studio Danielle, a blogger, well known and liked by young adults in France (1.2 million followers on FB) was commissioned to record a range of pre-scripted clips, in some she held a small notice board. Using Coach Danielle’s website as a vehicle, the audience would be encouraged to send an amusing and personal video message, via Facebook, to a friend or relation who may have been drinking and thinking of getting behind the steering wheel.

Receiving the brief only three weeks prior to launch, the Adgile team created a templated app using the Adgile Pro platform, that allowed visitors to create a personal message by entering their ‘target’ friend’s name and selecting a range of fun and amusing subject related parameters. The personalised 30sec videos were generated in 20sec and posted, by the user, to their Facebook page with relevant tags.
