Leo Burnett, MSLGROUP Team On Purple Purse Initiative For Allstate Foundation
Allstate Foundation’s Purple Purse 2017 campaign launches with a powerful new social experiment-based short film, Lost Purse, that provides the public with a look into the life of a domestic violence victim through a purse she’s left behind in a Lyft. “Lost Purse” was directed by Andrew Lane, the hidden camera expert, via Rival School Pictures.
The film, created by Leo Burnett Chicago and MSLGROUP Chicago, shows how real people respond when directly confronted with domestic violence and financial abuse. The participants’ reactions illustrate how we, as a society, think, talk and ultimately act when faced with this issue. By depicting real efforts to help a victim in need, viewers are encouraged to ask themselves, “What would I do in this situation?”
The Purple Purse initiative is partnered with tennis champion, entrepreneur and philanthropist Serena Williams.
