We are proud to share a new series of NO MORE domestic violence and sexual assault PSAs featuring more than a dozen celebrities who are so moved by the content of the shoot that they are left without words. Entitled “Speechless,” the newest PSA series created by the Joyful Heart Foundation for the NO MORE movement is a raw, unscripted and powerful video collection that shows the candid responses as these men and women attempt to talk about domestic violence and sexual assault. The PSAs will be seen on NBC (Dec. 10), USA Network (Dec. 12), on several Viacom brands (starting Dec. 15), and during NFL broadcasts this season.
“Speechless” was not planned. It was an unexpected byproduct when emotions ran high while shooting other scripts previously aired. The spots are stark, spare visually and use only ambient sound. “Speechless” was designed to shed light on how difficult it is to talk about these taboo, hidden and painful subjects. The spots reveal the depth to which we are all affected by these previously unspeakable issues. They urge viewers to start a conversation about domestic and sexual violence with friends and loved ones.
The NO MORE PSAs are the result of an unprecedented collaboration of celebrities, athletes, corporations, foundations and service providers who have donated their resources to bring these hidden issues into the public eye in a way that has never been done before. They were developed pro bono by Rachel Howald at the global ad agency Y&R (Young & Rubicam), produced by the Joyful Heart Foundation and Viacom’s social responsibility umbrella Viacommunity and Viacom Velocity; directed by Joyful Heart Foundation founder Mariska Hargitay; and photographed by renowned celebrity photographer Timothy White.
Similar “Speechless” PSAs featuring current and former NFL players (watch here) aired during NFL broadcasts on Thanksgiving Day for more than 92 million viewers, an advertising value of $2.1 million.
Since October 23, NO MORE PSAs featuring NFL players have been airing each week during NFL broadcasts reaching 16.6 million people per game – more than 590 million in total. The original, celebrity NO MORE PSAs launched in September 2013 and have since aired more than 39,000 times nationwide.
