6 Of The Strangest Safety Campaigns Ever Made

Safety campaigns have become an established part of the media, with government agencies, charities and other organizations putting out their message in the hope of keeping more people safe. Oftentimes they will tackle problematic issues such as dangerous driving and unprotected sex, encouraging viewers to change their behavior for the good of the public. While they can be hard hitting and emotional, they often do their job very well. However, not all are quite so effective and have instead become a mockery thanks to their odd and bizarre nature.

6. #CondomEmoji
Earlier this year, Durex started a campaign in association with World AIDS Day to try to come up with an official emoji for the condom. The scheme was centered around the premise of encouraging safe sex to try to combat the spread of HIV and AIDS while acknowledging that up to 80% of internet users used emojis to communicate on a regular basis.

5. Farming Hazards
The National Farmers’ Union, a United Kingdom organization representing those who work on farms, began a campaign known as Yellow Wellies in in March of 2015. It involved educating members about the dangers of working in the farming industry, where injuries account for up to 20 of all workplace accidents in the country. What made it strange though, is that they got the famous band The Wurzels to re-record their hit song “Combine Harvester” with new lyrics and an accompanying music video.

4. Deadly Sex
This poster was just part of a series that saw people engaging in sexual acts with scary creatures such as giant spiders and scorpions. The organizations behind it, an AIDS charity, hoped that it would get across the message of how dangerous unprotected sex can be.

3. Drunk Lollipops
In an effort to stop drunken men who had been on the town all night from getting into fights and causing trouble after closing time, police in Mayo County, Ireland began to hand out lollipops. According to the local council, the move was designed to help placate those on the way home and help to ensure they would be quiet while enjoying the sweets and not disturbing local residents.

2. Selfie Danger Zones
In response to the growing number of deaths and injuries that have been caused by people trying to take ever more impressive selfies, Russian authorities printed a series of billboards and posters to spread around cities. They hoped that they would convince people not to put their lives at risk in the hope of getting a good photograph.

1. Anti-Pee Paint
A number of cities around the world, including London and San Francisco, have begun to trial a new type of paint that they hope will educate the public and stop people from urinating against walls. Local councils often spends hundreds of thousands of pounds every year to clean up the urine left on the street by those peeing in public and the new paint has been designed to deflect the liquid back at the person and to prevent the wall from absorbing it.
