Hero celebrates the joy of togetherness with ‘Dilon ki Diwali’ campaign

Hero MotoCorp has rolled out its latest brand campaign-#DilonKiDiwali.  The 360 campaign conceptualised by Law & Kenneth Saatchi & Saatchi went on-air on October 24, 2016 with five television ads. Full page print ads, radio commercials and the digital campaign have alos gone live subsequently.

The campaign celebrates the two wheeler company’s historic milestone of crossing 70 million two-wheelers sold.

#DilonKiDiwali is about bringing people together during Diwali, by reflecting on traditions and creating new ones. Featuring five of the most popular products from the Hero MotoCorp stable, each of the five TVCs narrate short and simple individual stories of people who are together or get together thanks to their Hero two-wheelers.

The first story has a father explaining to his son why Diwali is celebrated.

The second story revolves around a couple riding the Hero Duet scooter.

The third story is about a young girl who reunites with her grandparents instead of whishing them on facetime.

The fourth story is about someone stuck at work during Diwali and cancelling plans with his brother. His brother, however, gets on a Hero Maestro Edge and rides all the way to his office to celebrate Diwali with him.

The fifth TVC is about a man brightening up the Diwali in an orphanage by celebrating with gifts and festivities with the kids.

The films have been directed by Pradeep Sarkar and Kshitij Ravi Prasad.

Rahul Nangia, Jt.National Creative Director, Law & Kenneth Saatchi & Saatchi said, “The campaign celebrates Hero’s role in bringing people together with simple and real stories.”

Debarjyo Nandi, Sr. Vice-President, Law &Kenneth Saatchi & Saatchi, said, “Hero is a nation brand with 70 million customers.
