Bentley Burial

Award: Wood Pencil

Wood Pencil / Direct / Direct Response/Ambient / 2014

People are not shocked by the burying of organs. But they are by the burying of a luxury car. To change that, we asked a famous and eccentric Brazilian billionaire, Chiquinho Scarpa, to post on his Facebook page that he would bury his Bentley in the yard of his mansion. The impact was huge. People were revolted and the media criticized his decision. An actual burial ceremony followed, with the media broadcasting live to the whole country. After placing the car into the grave, he stopped the burial and the organs donation campaign was revealed – organs donations increased by 31.5% in 1 month.
