Swiss agency Wirz Werbung AG received a Gold medal for its unsettling "Fight Violence" PSA for the Swiss Foundation Against Racism and anti-Semitism. The guerrilla :30 shows a man being attacked on a busy city street. "The attacker is an actor," the first super tells us. "The victim is, too," says the second. "All the others are real," we're told as we see footage of onlookers who did nothing to help the victim.
