Watch Trump melt away with this new candle from 01 Agency

01 Agency believe that it is important for a brand to have an opinion. Curro Chozas and Juan Oubina, 01 Agency founders and creative directors state, “We always tell our clients that nowadays brands need to have a point of view … to stand for something”. They therefore decided to dedicate some of their time to inspire conversations around social issues they care about.
The outcome of this is a yellow, handcrafted miniature sculptured candle of President Donald Trump’s head and neck with a sign across his tie that reads “It’s only a matter of time”. Chozas and Oubina see this candle as a symbol of hope that the outspoken President will “melt away soon”. The agency will donate 30% of the profits raised from sales of the candles to organisations that support the causes and groups Trump has publicly denounced in some way, including the LGBTQ community, women and immigrants.
Interestingly and yet unsurprisingly the first 200 candles have already all sold out.
