GALLERY 31: COI - You Never Know

An extremely impactful spot which highlights one of the drawbacks of internet chat rooms - you don't know who you're talking to. The ad targets teenagers and their parents and misleads us as to the identity of the speaker - a clever way of showing how we too can be misled by paedophiles who build up the trust of youngsters by using their language. Directed by Turner Prize-winning artist Gillian Wearing, the ad features impressive lip-synching and clever casting.
