Don’t let cold turn into disaster

In the midst of a “cold season”, together with Petrovax, we have launched an advertising campaign promoting Polyoxidonium, a medicine for cold and flu. The central element was a video stylized as a trailer for a catastrophe movie, where all the patients looked like zombies, and the flu epidemic turned into a dramatic apocalypse.


To raise awareness of the medicine and attract a younger audience using a non-standard format of the advertising message.


During the exacerbation of viral diseases, many people stay home and lie in bed watching TV shows and new films.


Advertising can not only convey the features of the medicine but also be interesting. Therefore, we announced a new catastrophe film telling about a real flu apocalypse that worsens without Polyoxidonium!   As part of the campaign, we supplemented the video with placements that are non-traditional for the pharmaceutical market: ad-trailer was shown on popular sites for online film watching and in thematic film communities on Vkontakte. The site of Kinopoisk was also branded. Dimensional constructions, posters and flyers stylized to match the announcements of the new film were placed in the Cinema Park and Formula kino movie theaters.
