VoterRX™ will leverage a highly successful 90-second NatureRX© video (“The best drug commercial you’ll ever see” – Outside Magazine) that went viral. Written and directed by award-winning filmmaker Justin Bogardus, NatureRX© has has over 40 million aggregate views on social media (3+ million on YouTube and many million views on various Facebook posts). NatureRX’s viral success occurred with no marketing or promotion – all through organic sharing and posting by fans of the video. VoterRX™ represents the natural evolution for Justin Bogardus and the creative team behind Nature RX in refining this successful spoof RX satire model, tracking its impact and measuring outcomes in voter turnout and civic engagement. In his TEDx talk about NatureRX© (“Does Nature have a marketing problem”), Justin lays out poignantly and humorously how this RX satire approach is uniquely innovative and can adapt to many important and valuable messages by understanding how the human mind works and what kinds of messages actually mobilize action. VoterRX™ is well positioned and timely, considering faith in US democratic processes and voter turnout is consistently at all time low levels in American history. Contact Justin for more info on his unique RX creative approach and any interest you may have in supporting this viral video campaign for a healthy vibrant democracy.
