'Dobutsu Honne March'

Saatchi & Saatchi Fallon Tokyo and Tetra Pak® Japan give forest animals the opportunity to speak out.

Tokyo - Imagine if all the animals in the forest could tell you what they were really thinking. Saatchi & Saatchi Fallon Tokyo has released a new campaign for Tetra Pak Japan that encourages people of all ages to select eco-friendly packaging and highlights Tetra Pak®’s endorsement from the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC®).

In 2014, Tetra Pak Japan became the first and only paper pack manufacturer in Japan to win official endorsement from the FSC®, whose rigorous standards ensure that all materials are sourced from well-managed, sustainable forests. Tetra Pak® wanted their customers – major drink manufacturers – to know about this and also encourage consumers to purchase FSC® labelled packs.

Most people in Japan haven’t heard of Tetra Pak®, let alone FSC®. Further, Saatchi & Saatchi Fallon’s research confirmed that although nearly everyone claims they want to make a difference to the environment, very few are willing to be inconvenienced to do so – this even includes spending an extra few seconds at the convenience store to check for eco-friendly packaging.

What was needed was a piece of communication so simple it would appeal to all ages and so much fun you’d not only be convinced to go out of your way to buy the product, but also pass the message on to your friends. The solution? Having adorable animated forest creatures speak their minds with new lyrics to an infectious tune.

The “Colonel Bogey March” is well known to all Japanese people as a children’s song with the lyrics “Monkey, Gorilla, Chimpanzee”. The Tetra Pak® version, sung by famous anime voiceover artist Akira Kamiya, is called “Dobutsu Honne March” (“The Animals Speak Out March”) and includes participation from all sorts of creatures such as a bird of paradise, a frog and an anaconda to name a few.

During the happy melody, the hand-drawn animals explode with anger at how the forest is being mistreated by careless humans, grabbing the viewer’s attention with a shocking visual transformation of the animation style and witty wordplay.

Just as a bulldozer appears to be spelling doom for the forest, FSC® lumberjacks arrive to save the day, planting new trees and creating harmony between people and animals. The horizontal scrolling website recreates the marching experience, with a few surprises along the way (you can even brush up on your Monkey-ese!).
