Real prisoners and ex-cons are the stars of a new TV campaign for Egyptian food manufacturer Harvest Food’s Bawadi halva. The work of indy outfit Elephant Cairo, the agency chose prisoners to front the campaign because they eat more halva than any other segment of Egyptian society. The five commercials see different prisoners discussing the attributes of good halva and the difference between good and great halva. Since time immemorial, prisoners in Egypt are known to eat just ‘bread and halva’. The final tagline is: “Those who know halva best, love Bawadi.”
