Courtesy of one of the UKs biggest advertising agencies McCann Erikson, spoof infomercial has received in excess of 1.5 million viewers believing they could get a tan through their computer screen only to receive delivery of a very serious message.

ComputerTan launched a revolutionary piece of technology that offers a top-up tan from your office desk. Well almost! The spoof campaign on behalf of the charity Skcin was a huge success with 880,000 page views in the first month across an incredible 180 countries.

Skcin would like to thank the team at McCann Erickson and all those involved in making this campaign a resounding success, it has been a great pleasure to work in collaboration with such an outstanding team of creatives, we are incredibly grateful for this opportunity.

English Golf Unions, SKCIN and UVISTAT combine to great effect

The English Golf Union, the sun cream manufacturer Uvistat and Skcin have combined to launch a unique skin cancer awareness campaign aimed at 750,000 golf club members in over 2000 golf clubs throughout England. Posters for display on notice boards and in locker rooms featuring England’s top amateur golfer and Skcin’s latest sporting Patron, Gary Wolstenholme, will be distributed in Spring next year warning club members about the dangers of over exposure to the sun. The EGU magazine will also support the campaign as will the English Women’s Golf Union for whom alternative posters have been produced and sent out this year displaying England Girls international Hannah Barwood, winner of the 2008 English Women’s Championship.
