Objective

To warn 18-25 year olds about the dangers of "binge drinking" and its impact on social networks.

To educate and inform in an entertaining, realistic way without moralising.

Description

The campaign builds on the knowledge that in order to motivate young adults to control their drinking, it is not the risk to health, but rather the impact on their image and reputation in social networks.

A humorous video against binge drinking, was launched by popular Youtuber Jimmy.  In it, he illustrates in a funny and offbeat way the negative effects that over drinking could have on your image and reputation.  This includes the risk of ending up with photos posted on social networks the next day.  Photos that we don’t remember taking and that make us feel uncomfortable.  He reminds viewers that it’s possible to have fun on a night out without drinking too much. 

The website which supported the campaign is no longer active.

Results

Over 5 million were reached through Facebook in the first year.  In the space of four months the youtube video had 1,707,879 views, 55,940 likes and 1,717 comments.  It has since reached 3.3 million views (300,000 in 2018), 86,000 likes and 1,903 comments (December 2018).
