Date of First Broadcast/Publication

An animated 1-minute film features gun-toting soldiers in business suits unleashing firepower on the Brazilian forest, to pave the way for buildings and cities. A powerful metaphor for the destruction of nature by man, the commercial compares the few trees that have survived urbanization to War Veterans. 


The Fundação SOS Mata Atlântica (SOS Atlantic Forest Foundation), a Brazilian NGO established in 1986 with the aim of preserving the remaining tropical forest, is again defending the cause that led to its creation. And, in a campaign created by F/Nazca Saatchi & Saatchi, invites the population to honor the rare native species that have survived the urban growth of São Paulo, the most populous city in the Americas. 

The “War Veterans” commercial resembles an action movie where modern evils overpower nature
