Great things about bus shelter advertisement

One of the great things about advertising using a bus shelter is the ability to add sound effects and images to it. One advertising campaign that did such a thing was not trying to sell anything. It was a public service announcement in Scotland that gets the word out about lung cancer and the dangers of smoking. At this bus shelter, there would be an audio clip that would randomly while people are waiting for the bus. This audio also mentioned that if a person has had a cough for over three weeks, they should visit their doctor. This public health campaign ran for three weeks, but it was super impactful.
