Pick of the week: Channel 4's 'Human Test' cleverly uncovers the synths among us

Channel 4 previously made waves with innovative work to promote the drama Humans, and this latest campaign has the same creative flair.

It is the first UK broadcaster to use voice assistant devices Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant to promote a TV show, and it created a personality test to determine whether a user is human or synth. The idea is fun, timely and cleverly plays on people’s paranoia about robots.

It was created by Eoin McLaughlin, Sam Walker and Josef Byrne.  

Brand: Channel 4
Title: Human Test
