Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport

This idea was created in collaboration with advertising agency The Oddshop, Amsterdam.

The visual concept of these commercials was to create a ballet of toiletpaper, tissues and with the sheet of a bed.

The text on the surface was projected with the combination of a powerful beamer and a special laser. The text says; Antibiotics are no anti stomach flu / Antibiotics are no anti cold / Antibiotics are no anti influenza.

For the non dutch speaking visitors, the voice over says:

Bacteria can cause infections.

Antibiotics are sometimes necessary for treating such infections.

However, if used excessively, antibiotics can lose their effectiveness.

As a result it may become more difficult to treat infections in the future.

Illnesses that are otherwise easy to treat, such as a bladder infection, or the recovery of a patient from a knee operation, can become life threatening.

Antibiotics should therefor not be used to treat stomach flu, a cold of influenza.

Use antibiotics only when necessary.
