Here is what Keys has to say about the campaign:
It’s really important and super-cool to use mediums that we naturally are on.
It’s so important to shock you to the point of waking up. It’s not that people don’t care or it’s not that people don’t want to do something, it’s that they never thought of it quite like that. This is such a direct and instantly emotional way and a little sarcastic, you know, of a way to get people to pay attention.
