A PSA with a difference

There are a lot of effective social distancing messages in the world right now, but few are as simple or impactful as this 30-second spot from the Ohio Department of Health. Through the clever use of ping pong balls and mouse traps, the public service announcement shows the chain reaction that occurs when a single ball is dropped on traps and balls that are tightly spaced together, then contrasts that with the same scenario with the traps and balls spread safely apart. It’s a startling and powerful metaphor for how quickly and easily the virus can spread and a nice creative execution addressing this timely and sensitive topic.
