Aqua Carpatica ‘Purity Test’ Campaign: “The Duck” Commercial

“The Duck” is one of a series of three ads that were part of Aqua Carpatica’s Water Purity Test campaign.  Like the other two ads — “The Snail” and “The Bridge” — Aqua Carpatica sneaked the word nitrates into familiar Romanian children’s songs about water. Shock value was achieved by juxtaposing the innocence of a child’s play with the existence of an invisible threat: nitrates.


Girl: “My ducklings went down by the NITRATE water. They sit with their heads in the water and their bottoms in the air.”

[Without you even knowing, nitrates are part of your kid’s life. AQUA Carpatica: Lowest nitrate content in Romania.]
