The Best Work You May Never See: adam&eveDDB Falls Asleep At The Wheel For AA Charitable Trust
adam&eveDDB, London, has created a powerful new campaign for the AA Charitable Trust, in an effort to reduce the number of road fatalities caused by drivers falling asleep at the wheel.
In a 60-second film titled “Drowsy Driver,” we see a man driving alone on a quiet road at night.
Out of nowhere, a pair of hands appear and start giving the driver a shoulder massage. Then more hands appear, this time gently rubbing the driver’s temples. The relaxing vibe then steps up a level, with incense wafting through the car.
Without warning, the scene changes and we realize that the car is empty except for the driver, who has fallen into a slumber. The final scene shows the car drifting on to the wrong side of the road and ends as we see the headlights of an oncoming vehicle.
The payoff reads: “Don’t let tiredness creep up on you. Stop. Take a break.”
Big Red Button of production house Biscuit Filmworks UK directed “Drowsy Driver.”
