After a successful pilot launch earlier this year, VIO - the ready to drink, flavored milk offering from Coca-Cola India launched its maiden ad campaign recently,which is being aired in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana along with the digital launch in other states. Building on the goodness of milk protein and the energy provided by it, the campaign focuses on the proposition ‘Run With It’. The concept revolves around leveraging VIO’s ‘Real Milk. Real Protein.’ benefit to enable today’s fast-paced, multi-tasking youth to ‘Run With It’ and lead an active lifestyle.
Emphasizing on the power and strength required for leading a multi-tasking lifestyle, the TVC showcases the protagonist in multiple scenarios and his ability to accomplish fast paced, intense activities such as running, cycling etc. with the help of VIO. As the protagonist transitions from one activity to the other, VIO Flavored Milk gives him the power to navigate through the race of life.
Speaking about the campaign, Abhishek Jugran, Director - Liquid Foods, Coca-Cola India and South West Asia said, “VIO aims to establish new consumption occasions for the consumers, over and above the standard in-home consumption. The product is packed with Milk Power and targeted for on the go consumers. It ensures that we cater to the target consumers’ preference for products that offer functional benefits, and yet are differentiated. We have put in a new dimension to the traditional beverage right from the brand name, VIO – an easy to pronounce, disyllabic word that is contemporary and aspirational, along with a refined and attractive Visual Identity System. Through the latest ‘Run With It’ campaign, we aim to build higher brand recall and awareness about VIO through TV, print and digital platforms. We expect VIO to set the trend in making out of home, on-the-go milk consumption in vogue for consumers for different age groups across the social strata”.
Conceptualized by Swapan Seth of Equus, the film has been directed by Marlon Rodrigues and produced by the production house - Show and Tell.
