An Urgent Message From a Young Barrack Obama

​In powerful new videos created by TBWAParis for Action Against Hunger, a young Kenyan boy, coincidentally named Barrack Obama, uses his famous name to call directly upon the Heads of States and Senior UN Officials to create a special mandate for the protection of aid workers. The plea comes as an increasing number of aid workers - more than 3,000 in the last 15 years - have been killed, kidnapped or hurt while working in the many countries that require their help .  

Personalized videos were created and sent via Twitter with the hashtag #AnswerBarrack to world leaders including François Hollande, Angela Merkel, David Cameron, and even to President Barack Obama himself. 

The campaign was strategically released a few days ahead of the 70th UN General Assembly meeting, taking place this week in New York.

Right Place, Right Time: TBWAG1 Launches New Campaign for Nissan Pulsar

TBWAG1 and Nissan Europe kicked off a European campaign for the new Nissan Pulsar, a model that first launched last year. The new 2015 Pulsar combines smart, innovative technologies in safety with sleek design, exceptional space and increased engine power.
 
In an exciting new film directed by Bugsy Steel and entitled 'Right Place, Right Time,' all of these key features come together one by one, as if the car is being assembled piece by piece around the driver as he cruises down a city street. The car assembly is eventually completed to reveal the 2015 Pulsar in full,  just as the emergency brake is applied and the driver narrowly escapes a collision. 

The voiceover quips: "The new Nissan Pulsar is built around you, with all the technology you need - exactly when you need it."

"What's For Dinner?" TERANTBWA and FUD Help Busy Moms at Mealtime 

TBWANeboko used the Netherlands' extreme heat for good by setting up an outdoor ad for McDonald's holding 100 McFlurry cups inside, triggered only by the rising temperature.

Passersby could see their favorite treat in the billboard but were forced to wait until the temperature exceeded 38.6 degrees Celsius (over 101 degrees Fahrenheit). The billboard, connected directly to a thermometer, otherwise just teased the long line of admirers while their thirst for something cold grew stronger.
