Mango Slice, the beverage brand from PepsiCo stable, has embarked on a brand campaign from February 14, 2012 to build greater consumer connect. The campaign will continue till March 31, 2012 and features brand ambassador.

Conceptualised by JWT, the Mango Slice campaign involves an interactive promotion, ‘Katrina Ka Number, Crown Ke Under’, wherein every Slice crown has a mobile number. Consumers just need to call on the number, and if they are lucky, they can win a date with Katrina Kaif. From February 14 to March 31, one winner everyday will win a date. Those who do not win the date will win collectible Slice merchandise or a personalised digital wallpaper. Mindshare is handling the media duties.
