Adorable germs drive 'viral' spread of healthy message

From Singapore: 'Germs roll call', for National Security Co-ordination Secretariat (NSCS) by Ogilvy Public Relations and Hogarth & Ogilvy Singapore

Adorable germs drive 'viral' spread of healthy message

Government videos don't exactly have a stellar history in the region, and Singapore especially has a reputation for producing howlers (see No. 1 on our list of 2014's 'most perplexing' ads, for example).

Which is why Ad Nut is impressed that this animated work about the spread of germs, of all dull topics, is reasonably fun to watch and has attracted nearly 450,000 views on Facebook as of this moment.

The campaign has launched a second video (below), and Ogilvy PR promises that it has saved best for last in a third film in the pipeline after that.

The Free Ride

Sharing isn't always caring. Have you shared in this uncaring way before?If you're sick, stay home. The germs go out when you go out. #LetsStandTogetherSG
