What best describes you?

The results of a secret 30-year experiment to test the principles of a healthy balanced diet have been released, in a new documentary entitled “The Trinity Experiment” for Meat & Livestock Australia, created by The Monkeys.

The film follows the somewhat extreme scientific study of identical triplets who were separated at birth 30 years ago and raised precisely the same, except for one pointed difference – their diets. The first was raised purely on green vegetables only, the second on meat only, and the third, on a healthy balanced diet.

The campaign consists of a film trailer, a long-form online film, and three breakout films that catch up with each of the triplets as adults, each demonstrating the consequences of their extreme diets on their long-term development.

“How the Limpski Institute got away with such an extreme experiment is beyond comprehension. However, the learnings are quite compelling,” said The Monkeys co-founder and ECD Scott Nowell.

“We were just lucky to come across the study and all the footage. It happened to fit perfectly with our nutrition brief for Meat & Livestock Australia.”

The film is directed by Guilty’s Clayton Jacobson, best known for other serious documentaries including “Kenny”, and draws from vintage documentation of the experiment and current-day interviews with the triplets and their foster parents.

“We’ve been saying for a long time that a healthy balanced diet can help make humankind be the best it can be, and now we’ve got the scientific evidence to back it up. And it only took 30 years and 3 billion dollars to prove it,” added Meat & Livestock Australia’s group marketing manager Andrew Howie.

The campaign will be supported across digital and social media, including on Buzzfeed, beginning on the 30th August 2016.
