The Big Wiggly Campaign

In 2005, in partnership with a colleague, we launched the Big Wiggly campaign to highlight the dangers of parasitic worms and encourage pet owners to regularly worm their pets. Our initial proposal in April was quickly given the green light with the proviso that the campaign had to be delivered in its entirety by October.  With a total reach of 50 million consumers and vets this campaign illustrates what can be done to win hearts and minds in a relatively short time frame. We still spot the colourful Big Wiggly stickers in veterinary practices today, which just goes to demonstrate the longevity of a good idea.
