View Script

Write a short summary of what happens in the radio or audio execution or campaign.

In a series of radio spots, we introduced a new type of self-defense for kids against bullying – mental martial arts. In each spot our mental martial art master teaches a different technique, inspired by ancient Kung Fu.

Cultural / Context information for the jury

Kids are bullied at schools and online across the globe. Bullying excludes kids from making friends and joining groups, damaging their self-confidence and future growth. Sprite stands for fun and togetherness and therefore must support bullied kids.

‘The Motion of the Duck’ MVO 1 (With heavy reverb and a mystical oriental musical sting) Welcome to the Sprite School of Mental Martial Arts. The ancient art of beating bullies with the power of the mind. MVO 2 (Japanese accent) Bullies are scary. That is their essence. Their purpose. And what makes them so annoying. But to show you are not scared is to take a bully’s strength. And you will not show you are scared. Because you will learn (with heavy echo) The Motion of the Duck. Look at the duck, gliding across the water. How serene it is. How calm. (With even heavier echo) NO IT IS NOT! For under the water, there is chaos! Paddle, paddle, paddle! Swimmy, swimmy, swimmy! Like a tap dancer wearing big duck feet! Can you imagine such a scene? And that will be you, my friend. Calm and serene outside, no matter how much your heart paddles and swims and tap dances inside. Be brave. Be the duck. There will be more lessons from the Sprite School of Mental Martial Arts soon. (A random martial arts noise, such as…) FYNN-GAAHH!
