Diageo North America launched a new social media campaign in order to curb instances of impaired driving during the holiday season. The campaign is titled #JOINTHEPACT and it is looking to collect a total of 50 million pledges to not drink and drive.
Diageo North America created a video to run alongside the social media campaign. The video highlights the theme of freedom and it depicts people living their lives during the holiday season. Following that, the video displays a statistic stating that one in three drunk driving fatalities occur during the holiday season. The video could be an informative piece of content deterring people from impaired driving, and encouraging individuals to take the #JOINTHEPACT pledge.
Caroline Rhode, the VP of Corporate Relations for Diageo North America, spoke on the rationale behind the campaign, "Although drunk driving is at a historic low in the United States, the reality is that one in three drunk driving fatalities happen during the holidays, and we believe that a single accident caused by drunk driving is one too many and can be prevented."
