Well, this is a new one.
Tel Aviv-based BBR Saatchi & Saatchi has taken something of a detour to promote hearing aids by positioning them as a tool to fight the aging process.
Shot as a standard cosmetics ad, this :30 spot promotes BEKOL, the 18-year-old advocacy organization for the hard of hearing in Israel. The campaign not only promotes hearing aids, but honors today (which happens to be National Hearing Day in Israel). The brief but somewhat clever take on advertising such products also aims to eliminate the shame some feel from wearing hearing aids by equating them with your average skin care item that people use to slow the aging process.
