Creatividad: Cochlear The Hearing Test in Disguise |

Based on the insight that people with hearing loss are in denial, we developed a way to test their hearing, without them knowing.‘Does Love Last Forever?’ is a short film with two different endings, depending on the viewer’s hearing ability. 
It’s a hearing test in disguise.The film follows a couple’s relationship over four decades, and poses the question “Did love last?” For those who can hear well, their relationship remains loving. But the film is scripted and produced in such a way that people with a hearing problem perceive the relationship to deteriorate. The beauty of the idea lies in the parallel between the perceived deterioration of the on-screen relationship by hearing loss sufferers, and the growing disconnect they may be experiencing in their own life, due to hearing loss. This subtle reminder demonstrates the effects of a condition that they may have refused to admit.


We turned the hearing test on its head, disrupting the ambivalence of our audience and inspiring them to action. Results in the first 9 weeks:-Tested over 90,000 Australian’s hearing in the first 9 weeks – people who normally may have not been tested-Leading to 6,000 taking a further hearing assessment-103,000 visitors to the microsite, with a bounce rate of only 3%-Average time on page is 14 minutes, demonstrating high engagement-Provided a platform for those with a hearing issue to connect with Cochlear for a free consultation to commence their long path to rediscovering their hearing. This fulfilled our key commercial objective of filling Cochlear’s sales funnel with 437 highly engaged, high value leads. -The campaign has resulted in a Return Ratio of 25:1


Direct to consumer: Cochlear had traditionally focused their efforts on communicating to hearing professionals and audiologists, seeking recommendation as opposed to request. However, as consumers are not actively visiting hearing professionals and hearing professionals are becoming less influential in brand choice, we needed to make a bold strategic leap and go directly to the consumer. Disrupt the denial:85% of hearing loss sufferers were denying their symptoms. Considering this behavioural barrier, it was clear that we couldn’t just tell people they had a problem, we had to demonstrate it. Data informed all aspects: Patient data and research revealed the coping mechanisms (eg avoiding busy restaurants, turning up the TV volume) and the sounds and environments people with hearing loss find difficult (eg background noises, words with consonants such as T, S, noisy restaurants). These insights from the data were worked into every aspect of the production.
