Public service announcements (PSA)
Jackie Chan: Avian influenza
60 seconds / English / EAPRO 2006
The PSA seeks to alert children and their families around the world to the dangers of highly pathogenic avian influenza, or bird flu. The one-minute spot shows Chan, a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, with six children and some very colourful origami birds that are used to convey an essential message. Chan tells the girls and boys in a firm tone: birds can pass on avian influenza to people, so it is important to stay away from sick and dead birds, especially chickens. He then nods approvingly as 8-year-old Ava pipes out: “But playing with paper birds is fine.” The PSA was produced by the UNICEF, FAO and WHO, with funding from the Government of Japan.
