PSA for the ONE organization. ONE is a grassroots advocacy and campaigning organization that fights extreme poverty and preventable disease, particularly in Africa, by raising public awareness and pressuring political leaders to support smart and effective policies and programs that are saving lives, helping to put kids in school and improving futures. We often say "We don't want your money, we want your voice."
Client Brief: Create a short video that brings opposites together to fight poverty. They could be athletes from opposing teams, a superhero and supervillain, feuding neighbors or even comically mismatched roommates. Lastly, go crazy. The video can be in-your-face, edgy, fun and/or funny — just make sure it's also super engaging. It shouldn't wallow in doom and gloom, but rather celebrate what we can make happen. Remember, we don't want your money, we want your voice.

One flavor, one recipe or dish, & zany personality = a fun and clever video. Remember, this has to be about cooking!
