Award: Wood Pencil

Wood Pencil / Outdoor Advertising / Ambient / 2016

Even the most open-minded people have internalized the implicit bias of cultural stereotypes, whether or not they act on it consciously. To help expose this bias, we created an online video featuring a variety of couples interacting behind a large X-ray installation. As the skeletons kissed and danced, viewers mentally filled in the blanks. When unexpected pairs stepped out from behind the screen, the surprise gave viewers a simple demonstration of their implicit bias.

Results:
160M combined views
Second most viewed PSA in history after just 3 weeks
Over 1.5B media impressions
