Y&R Cape Town has sparked heated discussions with its latest ad for the Western Cape Government.

Part of the Safely Home campaign, First Kiss tells the story of a young couple at a party who spend their night trying to kiss but keep getting interrupted. The final interruption, however, turns a straightforward love story into a shocking road safety ad.

The locally-relevant story was inspired by an Irish strategy, which is credited with a 100 per cent increase in backseat seatbelt wearing and a 50 per cent increase in front-seat wearing rates in Ireland and Northern Ireland.

Shot in studio and on location in Woodstock and the Bo-Kaap in Cape Town, the ad was directed by Egg Films’ Jason Fialkov.
