It’s a clean sweep for Bupa UK and WCRS winning Creative Work of the Month for the interactive music video ‘Body as a Band’.

Voted for by The Drum readers online and via Twitter (where the work won 47 per cent of the vote), Body as a Band takes the first Creative Work of the Month title.

Starring The Futureheads, the video aims to show people how well their bodies are performing via an online quiz – available here. With 54 different iterations on offer, the website serves up a unique, personalised version of the 2010 hit ‘Heartbeat Song’ determined by the users answers to the questions.

On launch, Simon Chrisp, general manager, sales and marketing at Bupa UK, commented: “I’m looking forward to see the public get involved and create their very own body as a band videos.”

Tom Crossley, managing partner at WCRS, said the campaign hoped to target the “hard to reach young audience who generally don’t even think about the effects their day-to-day habits have on their health”.

“Hopefully if they can see the effects your lifestyle would have on a band they’ll stop and consider whether it’s the right time to get a check with Bupa,” added Crossley.
