Creative agency Aesop has created this spot for NHS Blood and Transplant to motivate people to have honest conversations about organ donations. In time for Valentine’s Day, the ad depicts couples out to dinner with one person sharing their innermost thoughts, making for some uncomfortable but funny moments. The ad is part of the NHS’ Better Left Unsaid campaign, and hopes to encourage people to register as organ donors but to also let their loved ones know.
Creative director at Aesop Stephen Lynch says: “For many people raising the subject of organ donation is not an easy thing to do… We chose a humorous approach to cut through and make the sharing of one’s organ donor decision feel like a simple and easy thing to do.”
The ad is one of three films which are being launched across Facebook, YouTube and Instagram this week in the lead up to Valentine’s Day.
