Creative Spotlight

With Psoriasis Awareness Month on the horizon, Novartis spent $4.6 million this week to drop a single 60 second creative promoting its plaque psoriasis drug, Cosentyx. The ad featured actual users of the medication, including celebrity spokesperson Cyndi Lauper who suffers from the condition. Each one of them describes the challenges they’ve faced because of psoriasis and how Cosentyx has helped others to “See Me,” the medication’s long time tag line.

The ad debuted on July 17th during Early Today on NBC. So far it has aired 727 nationally with an additional 2,530 occurrences in local markets.
