An Important Hair-Raising Message

Earlier this year a Swedish ad agency designed a simple but brilliant piece of advertising for a shampoo: a video in a subway station in which the model’s hair is blown by the arrival of the train. Now the same agency has created a new digital ad using the same idea – with a twist.

The Swedish Childhood Cancer Foundation and Garbergs Advertising produced the video to raise awareness and funding for cancer research. Leave it to the Swedes to impress. When they aren’t speaking English fluently (more fluently, let’s admit it, than some native speakers) or recognising achievements in science and literature, they are producing creative, thoughtful advertising wth an important message.

On the other hand, there’s this.
