More babies in bins - badland.

Briefblog tips us that there is a commercial-twin to that strange baby in a bin ad I spoke of yesterday. Zappingdigital has more in depth analysis on the ad (in Spanish). This time hidden camera footage shows people reacting to the "baby" wailing in the bin - and how quickly their body language changes once they see its an ad.
A woman approaches the bin with her hand on her chest as if clutching her heart, and then slams the lid shut once she's seen the ad. The message here is different, instead of touting the pill it reminds people about abortions risks and consequences.

Interestingly, both the baby-in-a-bin ads come from Ogilvy.

Agency: Ogilvy & Mather Chile.
Client: Movement for Life.

Ogilvy Thailand does poor ad stunt

The Hidden Persuader (English, Portuguese) has an example of very interactive street advertising from Ogilvy One, Bangkok.
There's a motion sensor in a garbage bin, as soon as someone walks by the sound of the ad is turned on, which happens to be the wailings of a baby. So naturally any human still equipped with empathy will open the lid of the garbage bin - and what do they see there? "Find out more about the BIRTH CONTROL PILL" and the website url to turn to.
