Coca Cola India Does It Once Again!


Coca Cola has been on top of its digital media game ever since it set foot on the lands of Facebook, Twitter and other platforms. If one brand knows how to do digital right, it’s got to Coca Cola India. After the groundbreaking global ‘Share a Coke’ campaign, Coca Cola rolled out its latest Desi Campaign called #CokeNawaazi.

CokeNawaazi Campaign

#CokeNawaazi as the name suggests is Coca Cola India’s take on #MehmaanNawaazi. The brand launched a Facebook-Only campaign where it instilled the idea of substituting Coca Cola for Chai/coffee.mooh dikhai (1)
A series of short #CokeNawaazi videos were released on facebook which had the essence of Punjab, Mumbai, Birthday, Kitty parties, Mooh Dikhai and a few more. The campaign focuses on the ‘desi’ element which connects it with Indian audience. The videos focus on how Coca Cola is a part of every ritual, occasion and season. Considering the length of the videos, it was easy to take the limelight away from the product but the film makers did a commendable job and made sure that the product stands as the hero.

These on-point ads/videos target the right audience with the right message. McCann did a fabulous job with this one *Blowing kisses*

Rajnigandha Finally Shines with ‘Achahai Ki Chamak’

‘Achahai ki ek alag chamak hoti hai’

We wonder if the ‘Chamak’ is able to drive a mouth-freshener brand! ‘Goodness that Shines’ has been the underlying concept of Rajnigandha Silver Pearls’ marketing strategy. The campaign kicked off early in August with a TVC featuring Priyanka Chopra.

To put it subtly, the TVC was a total bummer, absolute waste of resources because it failed to establish a strong connection between the product and the visuals. We couldn’t help analysing the advertisement #FrameByFrame. Here are the statistics: Most of the viewers watching Priyanka Chopra in the TVC and the tagline appeared to be a jewellery ad rather than premium mouth-freshener. Only if the brand didn’t mean that their mouth-freshner will make the teeth “shine”, as the tagline suggests ‘Goodness that shines’ (pun intended).RajniGandha Silver Pearls

As part of their fire-fighting strategy, a month later they launched Pearls of India digital campaign to explain the ‘AchahaiKiChamak’ TVC. Well! Rajnigandha you deserve all the love and sympathy. The audience could pick on the brand message only with the videos and a few social trends, which were a part of their digital campaign.

Until now the Pearls of India series has ‘The Story of Pintoo Uncle’ and ‘The Story of Chacha Chachi, Spiti.’ Finally, the TVCs could define what does the brand means by ‘Achchai Ki Chamak.’ With real stories, real people being featured in these digital advertisements, the campaign has got its due on social media. As a Digital media savvy, we knew #PearslOfIndia was a promoted hash tag but it fetched decent number of views on the videos.

A #FrameByFrame analysis of the video helped us understand why this campaign got successful and the other one failed despite having top Bollywood actress as ambassador. The new campaign launched as ‘Pearls of India’ clearly defined the “Goodness that shines.” Hence, the audience could consume the content well, unlike the earlier one, wherein Priyanka Chopra indulges in a self-depreciating monologue and ends it with ‘Achchai Ki Alag Chamak Hoti Hai’. The TVC leaves you thinking what is the “achchai” in the elaichi and how does it make you shine, if it’s. But thanks to the additional videos, the message now stands crystal clear just like the Chamkili Achahai 😛

BIBA Pushes Beautiful Change With New TVC

Old ways do not open new doors

Change is always beautiful. But are we ready to embrace the change in our society? Are we ready to slash our egos and support gender equality? Half the men will say YES right here but we bet only a handful of them will truly support the cause. Well, BIBA the ethnic clothing brand in its latest TVC has said loud and clear that Change is beautiful. The TVC questions the entire concept of arrange marriages in India leaves us in ‘Can it happen..?’ state of mind.

The TVC opens with simple question by a daughter to her father – “Papa, sirf samose khilakar kaise decide karloon ki zindagi isi ke sath bitaani hai?” We see the nervous bride-to-be asking the most valid question but sadly the father has no answer so he changes the topic.img1Then we switch to the customary meet and greet with the boy’s family. After a series of whats and hows, the boy’s family readily agree to the ‘Rishta’. But the real magic unfolds at 1:09 when the father expresses his doubts about the guy and asks if he knows how to cook and take care of the family. Also, can we please ‘Salute’ him for the comeback at 1:25?IMG1 (1)Followed by a series of awkward glances and ‘My Beta is My Prince’ kind of explanations, at 1:20 the groom’s mother cleverly justifies her beloved son’s inability to cook. We feel you bro! Just hit the ‘F*ck you’ smiley and you’re done!IMG3
But let’s agree that 1:38 is the winning moment of the Ad. Blow kisses, like or even salute the guy for being a total sport. Just then the groom asks the father to come visit them after a week till then he would learning cooking 🙂 *Please pass the tissue box* the males in the ad leave us ‘Awwing’ and also secretly wishing for such men in our lives.IMG4Change is beautiful and we’re changing the World of Ad Viewing and Expressing with Mad on Ads.

Snapdeal selling ‘Dil Ki Deal’ in true sense!

Advertising industry has changed over the years. As the marketing trends are changing, moving from product-based marketing towards storytelling, here’s one more addition to the list. This video by Snapdeal True Serve came out as a perfect example of the storytelling advertising.

The video features a blind woman, Madhu Bala Sharma, who wished to buy a gift for her brother and called up Snapdeal. She shares her experience of how customer-care executive at the e-commerce giant helped her out. While we all assume it to be just an advertising gimmick, the video mentions that it is a true story. This will definitely move your heart as you watch this.

While brands have been bringing out 3-4 minute long video ad campaign to share their story, Snapdeal chose to make it a 58-second video. Of course, it has been a wise decision to ensure that their content reaches maximum people on web. As we approach the TVC #FrameByFrame, we realise how the brand has ensured to make the video crisp and clear.

While it can be seen as bragging about their services up-front, the voice of the lady has presented it as an experience lived and not just a customer review. It is due to her earnest expressions on every frame that have portrayed her as an empowered customer.

As she shares about the colours, patterns being described to her over phone, she projects it with a true service attitude, which is rarely found in today’s time.

This video testimonial showcases Snapdeal’s commitment towards every customer to provide them a delightful experience.If you haven’t seen the video advertisement yet, watch it now and express your emotions here #FrameByFrame.

  1. Airtel Night Cashback TVC

We wonder what has happened to Airtel TVCs these days. After introducing Neha Chettri to their 4G ads they’ve just degraded their standards. It became intolerant after we got to watch the Night Cashback Scheme advertisement. We know the scheme in itself is foolish move, but the TVC has gone a step ahead. The so-called ‘Airtel girl’ is seen waking up girls in a hostel room asking them to get up and use internet to get the cashback. While Airtel made a move to promote the same TVC on Twitter, customers also took it to the platform to express their hatred towards the scheme and the ad both. Watch and express yours too.

  1. Idea Internet Network (IIN)

The series of IIN advertisements put up by the Idea cellular network irritated one and all. Starting with the Drone TVC, it showed up various situations where IIN has helped people prosper in their careers. Time and again these ads challenged the existence of schools, teachers and universities. Hence this ad tops our chart of most annoying advertisements of 2015.
