Cirkus works up to an ex-germi-nation!

Together with Hogarth & Ogilvy Singapore, Cirkus has animated some quirky germ characters to feature in NSCS’s ‘Let’s Stand Together’ campaign.



You’ll see this range of germ characters – Tuberculosis, Influenza, Meningitis, Pneumonia and Hand-Foot-Mouth-Disease – in 3 short online films, “Germ Roll Call”, “The Roadblock” and “The Free Ride”.

Human Cannonball Romain Borrel directed these funny (and somewhat icky) spots to help prevent the spreading of infectious diseases in the workplace and schools.

“Germ Briefing” shows just how much germs love their hosts; “The Roadblock” sees Influenza hitting a barrier on their way to infect unsuspecting humans; and “The Free Ride” sees Tuberculosis hitching a ride with a sickly man.

So next time you’re sick, you know what to do to prevent those little boogers from spreading!

Watch the sergeant and his fellow germs go viral!
