Innovative Israeli anti-drug ads utilize the new social network profile to show the benefits of sober living,
In a creative social media campaign, media agency McCann Digital Israel has used the new Facebook Timeline design to advertise for the Israel Anti-Drug Authority. Utilizing the split-screen layout, they created a profile for a fictional man called Adam Barak and compared pictures of him side-by-side over the course of a year.
On the left, the photos show a year of his life as a drug addict, whereas on the right they show a year without drugs. The comparative photos of Adam display stark contrasts in his appearance and surroundings, with the drug-free Adam looking happy and successful, while the addicted Adam seems to have lost his girlfriend, job and home.
