“No Prime Minister!” Plain Packaging Protest

Posted on Jun 11, 2014 in Case Study, Our Blog

  Campaigners against standardised packaging of tobacco launched an online advertising campaign against the policy via Labour, Conservative and Liberal Democrat associated websites. The “No, Prime Minister” campaign was created by the smokers’ group Forest which runs the Hands Off Our Packs campaign. It features a letter that opponents of plain packaging can send to David Cameron in Downing Street. According to the letter there is no credible evidence that children start smoking because of packaging, or that plain packaging will deter children from smoking. The letter calls on David Cameron to wait until government has studied the impact of the tobacco display ban, which will not be fully implemented until 2015, and the introduction of larger health warnings which are being introduced in 2016 as part of the EU’s revised Tobacco Products Directive. Simon Clark, director of Forest, said, “Plain packaging is yet another attack on retailers and adult consumers. People are sick of being nannied by government. Britain needs to be protected from excessive regulation, not controlled by more and more legislation. “A four-month government consultation resulted in over 665,000 responses with a substantial majority, 427,888, opposed to the policy. We urge the prime minister to respect the outcome of that consultation which members of the public...

With a Push from MessageSpace, ActionAid Goes Viral on YouTube

Posted on Dec 29, 2011 in Case Study, Corporate Songs, Featured Client, Our Blog, Viral Seeding

MessageSpace’s latest viral seeding initiative (on behalf of ActionAid) saw us scope out the web in South Africa, as ActionAid asked us to help promote the video and help send its message viral, during the period of the Durban Climate Conference. We leveraged our network’s readership in South Africa, and augmented our efforts with a media buy on South African online publications to get traction for the video. As can be seen, it was quickly the most viewed video in the YouTube non-profit channel and the second most viewed video in South Africa. Be sure to check the video out – it’s a simple message: The UN Climate Conference in Durban needs to support women farmers in order to tackle the growing global food crisis, and agriculture is being increasingly threatened by climate change.     We leveraged the MessageSpace network’s readership in South Africa plus an online media buy in South Africa to push the video out. It became the most watched video on YouTube in South Africa on the non-profit channel and the second most viewed video in South Africa during the period of the conference. If you are producing a campaign video, we can give it that extra push beyond what can be achieved by PR....
