Google is becoming the go-to destination for anyone with a health worry, slowly replacing hospitals and clinics. With Vietnam suffering from a severe shortage of doctors, it's all the more common practice to pick up the phone and look for answers. But on Google, not everything is as it seems. A search for the symptoms of a light cough can return a result of cancer. A small rash becomes Malaria. Google doesn’t just exaggerate your illnesses but also feeds your anxiety and makes any health situation even more dramatic.
This insight led to a thumb-stopping creative idea - Turn off the drama. Parodying scenes from Korean TV drama - a very popular entertainment genre in Vietnam - we grabbed attention with scenes that showed over-exaggerated reactions to simple symptoms. A smartphone quickly interrupted the situation and urged people to ‘turn off the drama’ with VieVie.
