Everyone knows leather comes from animals. So when we look at leather clothes in a showroom, we are watching something that used to be alive. Some people also know how much cruelty the process of making a creature to become a belt or a jacket involves. But when displayed in stores, malls, runways or even the street, this aspect of the leather industry is usually the last thing to cross our minds. As our attention is successfully diverted to the glamour and the beauty of a designer´s creation, the cruelty remains concealed at plain sight.

Ogilvy & Mather Thailand created a very provocative way to make this ignominious facet of fashion to stand out. They took leather items on display in an pop-up store, not to sell them anything, but to give them “entrails”: fake intestines, blood, a beating heart, were put inside the clothes. When the customers opened or even tried them, they were presented with an unsettling surprise, that would let them feel and remember there is still something more than just disgusting about producing and -for the same reasons- consuming leather.

The beach can be a dangerous place, that’s why lifeguards exist. However, the hazards they preserve us from aren’t actually the biggest threats to our lives while we enjoy ourselves at the coast. At least in Argentina, while 274 died drowned in 2014, deaths from skin cancer in the same year climbed to 860. To raise awareness about the problem, LALCEC (Argentinian League Against Cancer) and J. Walter Thompson Argentina created the Sun Lifeguards. With towers facing the people on the beach rather than the sea, this lifeguards were dermatologists who would take care of the tourists by providing sun protection to the people who weren’t using it, making dermatological tests and recommending different sun protection factors through warning flags. The action had massive impact in the media and in social networks.

Live on through your organ donation. This seems to be the message of “The Man and the Dog”, the campaign created by DDB Argentina for FATH (Fundación Argentina de Transplante Hepático), which features a short, strong story. It´s about a dog that follows its master everywhere he goes, until he is hospitalized. The dog can´t enter the hospital, so it waits for a long time, until a woman comes out, and both recognize each other: the woman received an organ of the dog´s master, who passed away, so in this particular way, the dog can still love its master, and he can still love his pet back.

The idea of animals as authors is a fascinating one. And the concept of capturing their very own point of view of nature is interesting and original. “Animal Copyrights” is the result of combining them both to raise funds for endangered species, as well as to study nature in a different way. The initiative consisted in putting small cameras on wild animals. This made possible to obtain filmic record of natural locations from the animal´s perspective, since they were actually shot by them. A selection of the best images from the footage was used to create a collection of photographs which was put on sale on Latinstock. The profits obtained are, of course, destined to assist the best interest of their owners.

A big part of creating good advertising is about getting your target´s atention. There are many ways of archieving this, and advertisers use and abuse them constantly. Still, it´s not everyday you see a creature following you from one board to another, staring at you. This is what OglvyOne London made happen in this campaign for Battersea Dogs & Cats Home. Near the places the boards were placed, passerbys were given leaflets, that had a chip on them. This way it was possible to make the boards display a dog looking at the camera, that would follow anyone carrying a leaflet in this "persistent" way.

It´s usually accepted that retaining a customer is cheaper than making a new one. This is the reason why many companies make it difficult to cancel a contract of a service, making the process as long as possible to discourage the decision. This happens to be the case of internet, mobile and cable tv in Brasil, except in this cases waiting can actually take months. In order to both stress the disproportionate amount ot time required for this task, as well as the value this time has, Reclame Aqui and Grey Brazil invited the graffiti artist Vermelho, to call his mobile company to cancel the service, and during all the time he had to wait for this to actually happen, he made graffitis painting on a wall, right in front of the company´s headquarters. The action not only archieved social and massive media exposure, it actually inspired a new draft law, that made it possible to cancel one´s service in five minutes.
