The real heroes

BBDO gives props to the unsung stars of Movember.


During the other 11 months of the year (minus November), we know that firefighters and lifeguards are heroes. But that’s the beauty of Movember: it allows regular people to raise money and save lives. In addition to a print campaign spoofing the manly models on the covers of romance novels, BBDO Toronto has helped Movember Canada create a pair of videos that give recognition to the brave souls that walk amongst us. It’s the guy who grows his moustache no matter how ridiculous it makes him look or how much it repulses his girlfriend, or the creepy-looking lone wolf who bands together with his Movember team. In November, they’re the true heroes.
