Cipla Health has recently launched a new TVC for their brand Nicotex, a Nicotine Replacement Therapy category in India.
Conceptualised by Soho Square, Mumbai, the new TVC, titled 'Friends', shows a college re-union where two friends are reminiscing about the times gone by. The ad then goes on to highlight the struggle one goes through while trying to quit smoking.
Himava Nath, Head of Marketing, Cipla Health, said, “We as a brand want to try and understand challenges that the consumer goes through every day and address them. Hence we try to come from real life insights and showcase real situations related to all aspects of a typical smoker's life.”
Anuraag Khandelwal, Executive Creative Director and Creative Head, Soho Square, Mumbai, said, “We wanted a fresh approach to the issue of quitting smoking. Rather than showing the typical negative effects of smoking, which every smoker is aware of, the brief was to empathise with the smoker and the struggle he goes through in his journey to quit smoking. And that is what we have attempted with this piece of creative. It shows the human struggle and gives out a clear, sharp message.”
The film, which is on air, will be followed up later on multi-media vehicles.
