The campaign revolves around a social experiment where people are asked to name the most and least important persons among a panel of four professionals by looking at their names. Three of the names have titles of Dr., Capt. and Justice and are hence deemed more important than the fourth one; an elderly lady with no title to her name. It’s then revealed that she’s a teacher. And not just any teacher. But the one who taught the Captain, the Judge, and the Doctor.
