Title: THINK! drink drive campaign (March 2018)
Organisation: Department for Transport
Date uploaded: 21st March 2018
Date published/launched: March 2018
The campaign taps into the ‘bromance trend’ among young men, leveraging these relationships to encourage friends to intervene when a mate might be tempted to drink drive.
The campaign content is built on the premise of helping young men to tell their mate in a ‘fun, non-preachy’ way that drink driving isn’t cool, after research showed that many feel a sense of awkwardness in speaking out in these circumstances.
The campaign audio advert, Mates Matter, ran across a selection of radio stations in England and Wales and on Spotify.
Social media content includes a film which recreates the famous scene from the film Ghost, in a pub where a mate embraces his drink-driving friend and sings Unchained Melody before taking his pint away.
The campaign was launched on 9 March and ran until 31 March 2018.
