The One Club for Creativity

The witty 'Medicine Avenue' digital film campaign by DAVID Miami spoofing TV medical dramas continues with its second spot to promote The One Show 2022 call for entries.
Playing off the style of TV episode previews, complete with scenes of frenzied operating rooms, emotional interactions between doctors, moody music and cliff hangers, the campaign pokes fun at the creative process by replacing medical terminology with dubbed dialogue of ad jargon commonly heard in agencies around the world.
The latest spot, “Urgent”, humorously equates working on a client brief with an emergency patient operation, complete with overly dramatic staff interactions and doctor’s suggestions.
The campaign launched in September with “Ambulance”. Each spot carries the tagline “The 2022 One Show. It's worth all the drama."
"Advertising doesn’t save lives, they say. Yet people in our industry tend to take their jobs a little too seriously - especially when it comes to awards,” said Rafael Donato, CCO, DAVID Miami. “So for this year’s One Show campaign, we created an actual drama series, ‘Medicine Avenue’, which spoofs all the drama we create for ourselves in our day-to-day. It’s a little self-deprecation we hope everyone will identify with, and we sincerely appreciate The One Show for letting us poke fun at ourselves like this."
