Pedigree Donation GlassesPedigree Adoption DriveThe Pedigree Adoption Drive offers support to thousandsof abandoned dogs across the country. While thenumbers hadnt dropped, unfortunately public interesthad.Colenso BBDO thought up this innovative interactive wayto drum up public interest in New Zealands PedigreeAdoption Drive, the brands effort to rescue and put upfor adoption abandoned dogs around the world.By adapting the way 3D glasses work they were able tosimultaneously project two entirely different films on thesame screen.Viewers at screenings of The Avengers were offered thechance to make a small donation to the PedigreeAdoption Drive and be provided with a pair of yellowglasses. If they didn’t donate, they were handed redglasses.Utilising the technology, they shot two beautiful parallelstories - one of a mistreated dog who gets rescued, theother of the same dog who tragically never gets found. Video of un-rescued dog saved here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R6FoEL4YeD0
