5 Ad Campaigns Gone Wrong

Every “Don’t Do It” Anti-Gambling Campaign Ever

Gambling among teenagers is a very lively topic for the officials. And there are a lot of campaigns in that area that try to convince the youth not to take part in any gambling-like activity.
However, it’s now proven that all campaigns focusing on telling people any form of the expression “don’t do it” simply doesn’t work.
The study was published in the March/April issue of the Canadian Journal of Public Health, and it reports that any attempt at presenting a direct command (like “don’t do it”) has no effect on the youth.
