You, Your Barber or Your Barber’s Barber Could Have Prediabetes Says This PSA


November 14th is World Diabetes Day, and the Ad Council is partnering with the American Medical Association and the CDC to help those one-in-three Americans with prediabetes learn their risk with powerful new creative by Ogilvy.

This year’s campaign, developed pro bono by Ogilvy for the Ad Council, is focused on helping people understand that prediabetes is preventable and reversible. This is the third year in a row that Ogilvy has collaborated with Ad Council, American Medical Association and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for the national prediabetes PSA campaign.
The humorous spots, which were directed by Park Pictures’ Terri Timely, feature surreal scenarios that show the viewer who in their own life may have prediabetes – whether it’s them, their boss, or their boss’s boss. Prediabetes can be reversed with early diagnosis, which is why the spots drive to an easy, one-minute risk test that’s already helped more than 2 million people know where they stand.
