Mother’s Secret Weapons – Remember the days when every mum had a special weapon?

Mother’s Day campaign that celebrates mothers and motherhood in a way that resonates with the African audience.

The Idea: “Secret Weapon”
Traditionally, African mothers play a key disciplinarian role in the family. It’s a role that they sometimes played with firm hands and, where stern looks and raised voices fail to deliver results, it wasn’t uncommon for harder measures to be employed.

They decided to whip up nostalgic emotions and trigger conversations around this role – especially as many grownups in African communities look back fondly on these corrective episodes with loving mothers. Each ad humorously profiles the common tools used during a mother and child squabble, and use them to remind ourselves about the love that came in form of discipline.

“Here’s to the mothers who made us – and the tough love that forged us.”
