Notes: In America, gun violence is a public health crisis. Firearms are the third leading killer of children (behind illnesses and car crashes) with almost 15,000 children being killed or injured in gun-related incidents every year. Because shooters always display signs that reflect their deteriorating mental health, Sandy Hook Promise believes that people can prevent shootings by learning to spot these signs. To get their message out, they created branded content that starts out like a typical back-to-school ad, but takes a darker turn when it becomes clear that there’s a shooter in the school, and the pupils must use their new school items to survive. It ends with the message that the only real back-to-school essential is learning the signs of a shooter, and stopping school shootings before they happen. For the launch, we engaged influencers, who released the film on their channels as a “back-to-school” content–without revealing that it was for Sandy Hook Promise. People immediately started sharing the content, with the result that it received 26 million views in the first 24 hours, and 80 million in total. The PSA became a trending topic on Twitter and generated 3.9 billion media impressions.
