Copyranter spots a “great ‘disruptive’ print ad”:

The Wikipedia entry for “Disruptive Innovation” is well over 4,000 words. Native Advertising is considered a Disruptive Innovation.

That’s rich. And ironic. Because it is designed to not be “disruptive”. It is designed to blend in, deceive. And it is not an “innovation”. Branded “native” print editorial content has been around for over 100 years.

This ad [above and below] ran in the November 7th issue of the Guardian (click to enlarge):

Tim Nudd details the PSA:

With the United Nations General Assembly meeting next week, the world’s leading NGOs—Oxfam, Save the Children, Care, Amnesty and a hundred more—have banded together for a new PSA, directed by [Martin] Stirling, that attempts to capture the horrors being endured by ordinary Syrians on a daily basis. … The stylistic choice of using reverse footage almost becomes a moral choice here—it’s the hook that makes the piece haunting, and shareable, and thus capable of making a difference. The film is the centerpiece in the NGOs’ #WithSyria campaign, which drives viewers to a petition asking the UN Security Council to take next steps to protect civilians.

Stirling’s previous ad calling attention to the plight of Syrian civilians is here.
