Agency launches 'Search racism. Find truth.' campaign with Refugees Welcome

FCB Zurich's Unskippable YouTube Ads are Fighting Hate & Prejudice in Germany

After witnessing the hate and inciteful comments the refugee issue was getting in Germany, FCB Zurich partnered with Refugees Welcome to create “Search racism. Find truth.”

As of 9am on April 19th, anyone in Germany searching for xenophobic videos on YouTube will first be shown clips in which actual refugees rebut the subsequent prejudices in their very own way: with facts, personal anecdotes, surprising revelations and even humor.

Thanks to a complex combination of channel and keyword targeting complemented by the placement of unskippable ads before very specifically selected videos, individuals looking to watch hateful videos will be unable to avoid watching the messages from refugees first.
