Dentsu Webchutney unveils #EqualsInLove campaign for Platinum Days of Love

Launched ahead of Valentine's Day, the films showcase how truly rewarding and liberating it can be to have an equal partner in each other

EqualsInLove

To set the mood for this Valentine’s Day, Platinum Day of Love, a flagship programme of PGI India, has launched #EqualsInLove campaign, a collection of films that celebrate couples who meet each other halfway. The films are conceptualized and executed by Dentsu Webchutney, the digital agency from Dentsu Aegis Network.

The campaign is fronted by a collection of films that beautifully and meaningfully expressed this emerging resolve between couples, to meet each other halfway. From equally splitting the rent of a new home – something typically thought of as a man’s duty – to a man deciding that he wants to be a stay-at-home-husband, these films showcase how truly rewarding and liberating it can be to have an equal partner in each other. Making the love they share rare.

The month of February sets the mood for love, wherein couples seek ways and means to re-live and celebrate their love in a unique and memorable way. The campaign elevates this occasion for couples & asks them to celebrate their rare equal love with #EqualsInLove Platinum Love Bands. From identical motifs to complimentary designs, each pair of Platinum Love Bands is crafted to tell the story of love that’s rare & built on equality.

Speaking on the campaign, Sujala Martis, Director Consumer Marketing, Platinum Guild International said, “If left to its own, the conversation around love & relationships during this time of the year can get very sugary & mushy. As a brand, we stand for a certain level of maturity and wanted to approach this conversation from a slightly higher order lens. Modern couples do not look at themselves through gender-defined roles and responsibilities…equality is a very valid & important value amidst them. It’s part of what can make the love you share rare.”

Making it sweeter, couples are also given the chance to win a romantic trip for two to one of six exotic destinations, the on purchase of Platinum Love Bands.

Commenting on the campaign, Pravin Sutar, Executive Creative Director, Dentsu Webchutney said, “The topic of equality is one that’s extremely relevant in today’s environment. We wanted to add a unique perspective to it with the themes and nuances our films bring to life. Each film strikes upon a powerful way in which couples meet each other halfway to form a rare, unmatched bond.”

Aalap Desai, Senior Creative Director, Dentsu Webchutney added, “We wanted to not just celebrate couples who match each other as equals, but to challenge the status quo with our four films. Each film overturns traditional roles, becoming a source of aspiration for young couples who’re about to set out on their journey of love.”

The campaign runs between 1st and 21st February.

Sirona’s digital campaign encourages women to ‘rise up with menstrual cups’

Featuring social media influencer & theatre actor Shibani Bedi, the bold and quirky video encourages women to adopt menstrual cups as their go-to feminine hygiene solution

sirona

In a bid to encourage women to move past pads and switch to comfortable, convenient, and environment-friendly menstrual cups, Sirona, a menstrual and intimate hygiene products brand, has launched a bold and hard-hitting video campaign. By promoting easy-to-use, stain-proof, durable, and environment-friendly menstrual cups in lieu of sanitary napkins, the digital awareness campaign by Sirona is a much-needed present to Indian women across the country on the occasion of Women’s Day.

Featuring popular social media influencer and theatre actor Shibani Bedi, the video aims to uncover the harsh realities of using menstrual pads. Highlighting the numerous benefits of using menstrual cups, the video encourages women to go from ‘Down with Pads’ to ‘Done with Pads’. Through a bold narrative laced with sarcasm, the video campaign sheds light on how menstrual pads prevent women from embracing life during their periods. It highlights the major issues attached with sanitary pads such as rashes, discomfort, and the fear of leakage that plague women while using pads. It also focuses on the negative impact of pads on the environment and how this method of feminine care is already outdated in the first world. The video then goes on to illustrate how easy menstrual cups are to use and how they can change the way women perceive their periods for the better.

The goal of this first-of-its-kind campaign is to encourage women to break out of their ‘inherited habit’ of using menstrual pads and switching to menstrual cups. Sirona Cups made by using FDA approved cushiony medical grade silicone and are reusable, last for a decade, and extremely comfortable to use. Women who embrace Sirona’s breakthrough offering can swim, jog, travel, wear white, and forget worrying about their periods for life. Sirona Cups are already best sellers online on leading marketplaces with raving reviews.

Sirona has been at the forefront of providing women in India with unique intimate and menstrual hygiene products. Driving home the message of ‘Rise Up with Menstrual Cups’, Sirona is speaking out loud about the complacency that dominates sanitary care in India, and informing women that better, more comfortable alternatives exist for them. Initiating a much-needed discourse around this subject is a step towards ensuring quality feminine hygiene solutions for women across the country.

HDFC Life's new campaign showcases inspiring real-life #Bounceback story

The campaign focuses on the real-life story of Darpan Inani, who lost his sight due to an illness, and yet bounced back to become the highest rated visually impaired chess player in the country

HDFCLifeDarpan

HDFC Life Insurance Company Limited has launched a new brand campaign which focuses on the real-life story of Darpan Inani, who lost his sight due to an illness at a very young age, and yet bounced back to become the highest rated visually impaired chess player in the country.

As a brand, HDFC Life has always stood for pride, encouraging independence through self-reliance. The brand has always highlighted the hard-to-replace-individual who not only provides for his/her family but also enables his/her loved ones to #BounceBack from any challenges they face.

The film showcases the inspiring story of Darpan, whose eyes were affected by the Steven Johnson Syndrome at the age of 3 years, causing him to lose his eye-sight. But this did not stop him from pursuing his dream. According to Darpan, chess is a game of vision and not visibility, thus allowing him the opportunity to compete in the game as any other competitor would. He not only excelled at the game but also went on to become the first visually impaired Indian (in his category) to win the Creon Open Chess tournament, in France in August 2018. Playing a pivotal role in his success, Darpan's family encouraged self-reliance and pushed him to #BounceBack from the situation and to live a life of pride.

Speaking about the campaign, Pankaj Gupta, Chief Marketing Officer, HDFC Life, said, "This story of self-reliance strongly resonates with HDFC Life's proposition of 'Sar Utha ke Jiyo'. Through this ad, we want to leave our viewers with the message that anyone can #BounceBack, despite challenges and limitations. All they need is the right kind of support, encouragement and financial preparedness. Darpan's parents imparted a valuable life lesson on self-reliance, serving as a backbone to his success and empowering him to conquer all odds and achieve his dreams.”

Add to this, Rajdeepak Das, MD, India & Chief Creative Officer, South Asia, Leo Burnett, said, “Darpan Inani’s story is about human resilience. His spirit of never giving up embodies HDFC Life’s ‘Sar Utha Ke Jiyo’ ethos. This campaign touches upon the very human behaviour of bouncing back, and it is people like Darpan Inani who inspire us to do our best in any situation. This work is purely Humankind and we hope it will move our consumers into the importance of having life insurance.”

HDFC Life plans to take its new campaign to the customer through different platforms and intensify the brand experience. Apart from television, the film will be supported by other media such as print, radio, OOH, DTH, cinema, live media with a significant focus on digital and social media.

Prepare your family to #BounceBack with HDFC Life:

Akshay Kumar’s road safety call: An unusually funny & witty govt ad that stood out at PTA

The three-film 'Sadak Suraksha Jeevan Raksha' campaign created by Helios Media, was adjudged the Best TV Commercial at the recently held exchange4media’s Prime Time Awards

AkshayKumar

Think of a government ad. What is the picture that comes to your mind? Most likely, it will be a no-frill serious film delivering the message in a preachy way. Not your fault. That’s the kind of government ads we are used to watching. Wit, quirk, humour or entertainment are definitely not the features we associate with ads of the government. And so, if a government ad is adjudged the Best TV commercial at the prestigious exchange4media’s Prime Time Awards, defeating hundreds of entries, it definitely calls for a thought. 

The ad in question is the Transport Ministry’s road safety campaign with Akshay Kumar. And most of us who have watched it will surely not disagree with the jury. The three-film 'Sadak Suraksha Jeevan Raksha' campaign was created by Helios Media in collaboration with Bharat Dabholkar, Kiran Vernekar, and Sayali Kulkarni. It was directed by R Balki. 

The ad film is a complete shift from the usual serious style of government ads. The films, which see Akshay Kumar turning into a traffic cop, have a very quirky and humorous approach to the serious issue of road safety. And lines such as ‘aapke baap ka road nahi hai!’ give the coolest of commercials a run for their money and of course leave the audience wondering if it is actually a government ad. 

 

So how did this non-government-like government advertisement come into being? 

It wouldn’t have happened had it not been for Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari, says Divya Radhakrishnan, Managing Director, Helios Media. 

Sharing the story behind the making of the campaign, Radhakrishnan, says, “There was a lot of contribution from Mr. Gadkari. He took a very keen interest. In fact, he approved the script in just 5 minutes. He was very clear that we should not make the ad like a typical government ad. He wanted us to make it like the way ads of brands are made. Working for this ad was a fabulous experience.” 

According to Radhakrishnan, even Akshay Kumar was a big contributor.

“He gave a lot of inputs. He wanted the film to be made very well so that the message is delivered properly. In fact, he did not even charge for it. All that he wanted was a good director so that the film comes out well. It was he who suggested Balki as the director,” she said. 

Radhakrishnan feels it is the “sleekness of production and the way the message has been communicated” that make the films stand out. 

Remembering the thought process that went into conceptualising the ad, she says the biggest issue was how to bring novelty to a message, like ‘wear a helmet’, that has already been delivered to people many times.

“When we got the brief for road safety, we tried several concepts. They were all good, but we felt that that the message was not getting through. That’s when we zeroed down on humour and cracked the concept.”  

The campaign has achieved good popularity on social media, receiving 4 crore views. “And this was organic. It was shared just from Minister Gadkari's and Akshay Kumar’s handles. This is a one-of-its-kind response,” mentioned Radhakrishnan.

The victory at the Prime Time Awards was obviously a sweet moment for everyone involved in the making of the ad. But with a government ad winning an award like this for the first time, it was a special moment even for the ministry.

“It was the first time that an ad made by the government of India has won such an award. It was such a heartening thing for them (ministry) that Mr. Gadkari called us to his office and honoured us.”
 


A campaign that delivers a social message in an entertaining way is probably a campaign done the best way. We hope to see many more such ads in the future, especially from the government.

With the new positioning, we aim to celebrate the forward-thinking brought-in by today’s women and Taapsee who is an inspiration to them; and has proved her strength and mettle by taking on unconventional roles, in movies or beyond, is a natural fit.  We welcome her to the Kurkure family”

Taapsee, who has been reigning in her back to back film successes, through this collaboration will be seen in a series of advertising and marketing campaigns. The first in the series, Kurkure has unveiled a new advertisement campaign featuring the actress in her bubbly and chirpy avatar.

In the film, Taapsee, is seen representing a new Indian homemaker, a bahu, who shares her excitement, with her family, on receiving a job offer. Unfortunately, her excitement meets denial from her aunt, who recommends her to take up a hobby at home. As the bahu battles with the disappointment, Kurkure comes to her rescue, as its spices and flavours become her driving force to encourage the aunt to think beyond the conventional. With every bite of Kurkure, Taapsee is seen taking on the task of convincing her aunt of her professional choices, in a witty and fun manner. The film concludes on a positive and happy note, wherein, the family is seen enjoying a pack of Kurkure and the aunt supporting the bahu to venture out and pursue her career and passion.
