Tampax, together with Publicis Groupe agencies Saatchi & Saatchi New York, MSL Group and Publicis Media, has launched a taboo-breaking campaign.

: 'Grateful Britain'

Date: April 2020
While the streets lay abandoned as people ‘stay home for the NHS,’ the UK’s out-of-home (OOH) came together as one, to broadcast the nation’s gratitude for those working tirelessly on the frontline of the fight against coronavirus.
Created by ad agency Mother, the ‘Grateful Britain’ deploys light humour to say thank you to those keeping us safe as we stay at home. Typed simply against a while background, the copy reads ‘Thank you to our croc wearin’, patient carin’, stethoscope slingin’, bin collectin’, letter postin’, prescription fillin’, shelf stackin’, lorry drivin’, loo roll deliverin’ heroes.’
 The colloquial copy gives thanks to doctors, nurses and lab technicians, to supermarket workers, delivery drives and postal workers, highlighting the essential services that are the nation’s lifeline right now.
Initiated by Outsmart, the OOH trade association, Grateful Britain will run throughout April and May on media space donated by blowUP media, Clear Channel, JCDecaux, Mass Media, Maxx Media, Ocean Outdoor and UKBillboards, with more members expected to come on board as the campaign progresses. 
The DOOH campaign runs across roadside and retail locations aimed at reaching key workers whilst they’re working tirelessly around the clock helping us through the fight against Covid-19. OOH will be supported by social media activity.

: 'The Lockdown'

Date: April 2020
While the nation follows the government’s direction to stay safe indoors, Women’s Aid wants people to consider those who might not be ‘safe’ via those instructions.
Between the 26 March and 1 April, Women’s Aid experienced a 41% increase in users visiting its Live Chat site – a marked difference from the week prior. To help victims of domestic abuse, Women’s Aid set up a coronavirus advice page for survivors, which has since received 27,000.
The stark growth of women seeking help coping with domestic abuse during the lockdown, presents a very chilling problem at hand. To raise awareness of those struggling through the coronavirus lockdown with their abusive partners, on a pro bono basis, Engine and Knucklehead have created ‘The Lockdown’ – a campaign that brings this issue to the fore.  
Abiding by the current government guidelines, a number of collaborators used their daily exercise excursion to capture footage of London, at it’s most empty, as people remain inside.
The vehicles have all but gone on Westminster Bridge as Big Ben stands enclosed still in scaffolding, the traffic lights still light up at Piccadilly circus though for no one’s use, a Chinese lantern blows  along an abandoned pavement in China Town; all chilling images that stress that domestic abusers are no longer walking the streets, ‘they’re locked inside with their families.’
The work will run on social channels and in donated media including The Guardian print and digital, as well as Sky and Eurosport, thanks to help from Essence.

: 'The Drive'

Date: April 2020
With the world confined indoors, Audi is offering a way to reconnect with house-bound Australians through the freedom of the open road. Together with partner social media agency We Are Social Australia, Audi Australia has created ‘The Drive’, a 4-hour long slow TV film that allows viewers to experience the soothing nature of a long road trip from the confines of their own home. ‘The Drive’ takes viewers on an immersive road journey through breathtaking Australian landscapes in an all-new Audi A6 Sedan. The film was shot in the NSW Central Tablelands by director Luke Bouchier at Finch, using multiple cameras to replicate the experience of driving the car, which the audience can enjoy from the comfort and safety of their own home. To enhance the mood of the drive, the film was scored by composer John Hassell, from his studio in Marseille, France, where he is currently in isolation. Part of the appeal for using a long, slow TV-style approach was to tap into the zen nature of the genre in a time when people seemingly crave it more than ever – encouraging a moment of calm in an otherwise frantic climate.

: 'Six Feet Apart'

Date: April 2020
With social distancing a critical part of inhibiting the spread of COVID-19, Rochester-based ad agency Partners + Napier has created a pro bono communications effort to encourage people to stay home or – barring that – a minimum of six feet apart.
The effort was the result of a task force that includes the Monroe County Department of Health, Rochester Regional Health, the University of Rochester Medical Center and Causewave Community Partners.
The fully integrated campaign primarily targets often-underserved populations, including urban, Latino and hearing-impaired people, with a broad message that is simple and empowering: 'Stay Home or Stay Six Feet Apart.'
