23andMe makes its debut on TV

Personal genetics firm 23andMe aired its first TV ad last month in a bid to build the audience for DNA sequencing.

The spot is part of a multi-channel campaign,  “Portraits of Health,” featuring national TV, radio and digital elements. Havas' Arnold Worldwide created the campaign, with production company Buck directing and animating the TV spots. 23andMe has set a goal of reaching a million customers by the end of this year.

The effort is meant to educate the public about how understanding their DNA can aid them in making  better health decisions. It also aims to help patients see 23andMe as a brand they can trust.
