GALLERY 32: Most Talked About - Depaul Trust

Interactive ads have, until now, been relegated to the ranks of shopping trolley items such as Chicken Tonight, so the fact that a charity has chosen to use the technology to educate viewers about the plight of the homeless is groundbreaking in itself. The ads, staring "Paul", a former resident of one of the trust's hostels in real life, charts his descent into homelessness. The viewer can choose what Paul does next by pressing a yellow or green button on their handsets.
