Godrej Appliances, a part of Godrej Group, has launched its first digital video commercial for the International Women’s Day. Having understood the great leaps taken by women in the field of education, science and fight for equality, Godrej Appliances decided to celebrate the ‘special woman’ through this digital video commercial.
Godrej Appliances roped in WATConsult and Karmic Productions for executing this campaign.
Commenting on the launch of the digital video commercial, Ramesh Chembath, Associate VP & Head - Marketing, Godrej Appliances stated, “Women are our most important consumers and hence, we felt it is important to make them feel special on their day. Often people misconstrue that women are not as tech-savvy as men, and hence need home appliances that are not very high-tech. On the contrary, women appreciate new technology and are quite adept at accepting the same. Our commercial helps to bring this out and showcases the main protagonist as a multi-tasker, who is at ease with technology at home and at work.”
The idea, conceived and conceptualised by Godrej Appliances and WATConsult, aims to engage, and act on a common miss by most men, wherein they often forget to appreciate the woman in their lives, while she dons many roles with ease.
Commenting on the idea and the execution of the DVC, Rajiv Dingra, CEO, WATConsult said, “We often forget to thank the women in our lives – be it our mother, sister, daughter or wife – for all that they do and for how well they balance their personal and professional lives. This DVC aims to bring this gratitude forward and urges men to be expressive and help make the women feel special.”
