The viral generated over 2 million hits within the first two weeks of launch and reaching over 60 million people both at home and globally.

The Teenage Kicks pregnancy campaign consisted of a shocking viral film and gritty six-part “Skins” style drama series. It was featured in press and on TV globally and initially banned on YouTube due to its shocking nature.

The campaign was featured in Creative Review, and won numerous industry awards including social media campaign of the year at the PR Week awards.
