Sleep is essential for a person's health and wellbeing, yet millions of people in India do not get enough sleep. The ZzzQuil India National Sleep Survey2 by Kantar in association with P&G Health reveals that only 15% Indians on an average get good sleep at night, with almost 60% Indians facing occasional sleeplessness. More than 40% sleep less than 7 hours on workdays, with a large part of the population unaware of the impact of sleeplessness on daily life. To address the issue P&G Health has launched Vicks ZzzQuil NATURA to help users fall asleep.

Speaking at the launch, Sahil Sethi, Senior Marketing Director, P&G Health shared, “The ZzzQuil India National Sleep Survey has brought to light important statistics on how India sleeps, and more importantly the limited awareness on sleeplessness as a condition and ways it can be addressed. India is the 2nd Most Sleep deprived country with 6 out of 10 Indians facing occasional sleeplessness. Committed to addressing the unmet needs of our consumers, we are delighted to introduce the latest addition to the House of Vicks in India – the NEW Vicks ZzzQuil NATURA. Vicks ZzzQuil NATURA - a Melatonin sleep supplement from the World’s No.1 Sleep Aid Brand - is a non-addictive sleep supplement, suitable for Occasional Sleeplessness with no next day drowsiness. It also has Vitamin B6 that helps to relieve the body's tiredness and fatigue, giving support to your night's rest to help you wake up refreshed. With 60% Indians willing to make lifestyle changes to get better sleep, we hope that our Indian consumers can start using ZzzQuil NATURA to unlock their best selves next day”.

Speaking at the ZzzQuil ‘Slumber Fest’, Celebrity guest & Actor Sonam Kapoor Ahuja shared her tryst with sleep, “Being a new mom with a very busy career, I am now realising how much I took my sleep for granted. Especially for professionals like me, a struggle with quality sleep on a regular basis, leads to multiple issues including an irritable next day. I am glad that a product like Vicks ZzzQuil NATURA has been launched which makes life easier for people like me who are juggling multiple responsibilities. As I get back to my fitness regime Vicks ZzzQuil Natura will support me in regulating my sleep to unlock my best self.  I am very pleased to be a part of this initiative to make India sleep better and call on people to try this non-addictive sleep gummy to aid your peaceful night’s rest.”

Dr. YongChiat Wong, Group Head & Scientist, Medical & Technical Affairs, P&G Health said, “Melatonin is a natural body-produced substance. It is produced by our body every night to signal and relax our body to prepare for sleep. Melatonin production peaks during childhood but decreases as we age. After our 30’s, we may produce less than half the melatonin we did as a child. This may lead to the prevalence of sleeping issues as we age together with our lifestyle changes.  Apart from age, other factors that may impact our body’s production of this important substance, includes device usage, shift work, alcohol intake, and usage of certain medications. Blended with melatonin and vitamin B6, Vicks ZzzQuil NATURA gummy is a nutraceutical intended to supplement your body’s natural production of melatonin to help you fall asleep fast with the added benefit to help fight tiredness and fatigue.”

We believe his association will help increase our awareness amongst consumers and encourage them to choose from the best mayonnaise range available in the market and help us eventually be the first choice in terms of a mayonnaise brand.”

Our campaign tagline and idea is unique: Kellogg

The cereal brand has responded to plagiarism allegations regarding the EatFit that the “Kuchh Kar Dikhane Ki Bhook” campaign

By exchange4media Staff | Feb 4, 2023 12:08 PM   |   2 min read

Kellogg has responded to allegations made by EatFit that the cereal brand has lifted its advertisement “Kuchh Kar Dikhane Ki Bhook” launched for the ICC World Cup last November.

In its response to the issue, Kellogg said, “We would like to clarify that  ‘Kuch Kar Dikhane ki Bhookh' is a summary of our campaign idea and our tagline, brought alive both as a Super and Voice Over in our advertisement. The core message of our communication, 'Pet bhara hoga tabhi toh bhookh lagegi' is that 'only when your child's stomach is full will they be hungry to do more' and therefore, it makes this context unique. This was developed internally by our creative agency (O&M) and researched by us many months before it was aired on television.

Like many other ads, the phrase is a colloquial term used widely and hence, we chose to go with this to deliver our message. ‘Kuch Kar Dikhane Ki Bhookh’ is a commonly used term and lacks exclusivity to any campaign. It cannot be called proprietary material unless the same is protected under the Indian legal context.

As a responsible marketer, we and our creative partner, Ogilvy & Mather, did our due diligence before releasing this expression. In terms of completeness, a trademark search conducted before the launch of the campaign did not reveal any applications or registrations, otherwise.”

Kellogg has also categorically and unequivocally denied all allegations of plagiarism / copying / reuse of the tag line in reference to our ongoing multi-media campaign. “We are confident and proud of the team, which worked on this campaign and we believe in the originality of the idea and the strength of the creative expression.”

Love is in the air but you don’t have to breathe it: 5 Star ad tells us why

Cadbury 5 Star introduces the ‘Mush Detector’ with a campaign by Ogilvy India

By exchange4media Staff | Feb 4, 2023 9:03 AM   |   2 min read

5 Star

Cadbury 5 Star has launched yet another unique campaign to help singles navigate through the “love-sick zones and dodge gushy couples”. As part of this year’s #DoNothing proposition, the brand has introduced a Mush Detector Web App, helping free birds ‘Do Nothing’ in peace.

Nitin Saini, Vice President - Marketing, Mondelez India: “Speaking directly to the nation’s youth, Cadbury 5 Star with the perfect balance of quirk and wit has consistently conveyed relatable stories. Creating yet another engaging narrative for Gen Z, our latest edition of Valentine’s Day campaign stands for all those who do not celebrate Valentine’s Day and will help them steer clear of any mush, anywhere. With a resounding response to last year’s Valentine’s Day campaign, we are confident that this year’s efforts will resonate equally well with our consumers.”

Sukesh Kumar Nayak, Chief Creative Officer, Ogilvy India: “Valentine’s Day has become an annual event for Cadbury 5 Star to leverage and land its 'Do Nothing' counterculture attitude. This year we have conceived and built a zany, dynamic web app, the 5 Star Mush Detector - which helps people detect and avoid mush around them with a real-time map using various data points like nearby florists, gift shops, movie theatres, restaurants, etc. What makes it even more irreverent, is that the data is also triangulated with chocolate sales to deduce mush. The more lovey-dovey an area, the redder it appears on the map. The app also assists users find mush-free spots, where they can escape to 'Do nothing'. To make it further engaging, friendly folks can help us in populating the real-time map during Valentine’s week, by reporting mushy places to avoid."

Britannia’s ad for Pure Magic Chocolush explores the bliss of living in the moment

The quirky ad has been conceptualised by The Womb

By exchange4media Staff | Feb 4, 2023 8:42 AM   |   3 min read

Pure Magic Chocolush

Britannia’s choco-filled cookie brand Pure Magic Chocolush has launched its latest campaign ‘Live This Moment’. The new campaign showcases Pure Magic Chocolush in its all-new avatar wherein we see an enlightened man teaching his followers to experience the gooey choco filling and the crunch of Pure Magic Chocolush. The TVC brings alive the true characteristics of the cookie- loaded with 38% choco inside. Pure Magic Chocolush has been introduced with new-age premium packaging by Britannia.

Talking on the launch, Amit Doshi, Chief Marketing Officer, Britannia Industries Limited said, “On Pure Magic, we sought to express the key product attribute of the abundant gooey choco centre wrapped in a crunchy cookie. We came to realise that people don’t consume Pure Magic, but Pure Magic consumes people. And that led us to our idea of forgetting the past and not worrying about the future but rather ’live this moment’. With a brand-new product experience and a powerful brand idea that builds desire for Pure Magic, while distinctly distinguishing itself from the competition, we hope it touches the right taste buds of the choco-loving consumers.”

Amit added, “The premium indulgence category of biscuits is growing faster than the overall biscuits category. Given these changing consumer preferences and market dynamics, we wanted a strategic firm like The Womb to be associated with us. They have the right balance of strategic and creative capabilities to create compelling communication for growth.”

Kawal Shoor, Co-Founder, The Womb said, “It's a privilege to work with a legacy company like Britannia and on brands like Bourbon, Pure Magic, and Treat with Amit and the entire team. The premium indulgence category of biscuits is one of the most closely contested categories. The new competition has emerged; however, Britannia was and will remain the OG."

On Pure Magic, we looked at expressing a core product truth of abundant gooey chocolate center, encased in a crunchy cookie through a cultural insight. Through our research we realized that people don’t consume Pure Magic, but in turn, Pure Magic consumes people. It is so indulgent and gooey that you cannot do anything else but focus on it and relish it. And when you so focus on something, you live in the present. The future and the past dissipate from consciousness. This helped us arrive at our big idea of a cookie so involving that it takes your mind off everything else and makes you ‘live this moment’.”

Suyash Khabya, Creative Head The Womb said, “The brief allowed us, the creatives, to be indulgent, just like the product. So we cracked the idea of an enlightened man professing the product truth, but in his own quirky way. He will now be dispelling the message of ‘Live This Moment’ and through him, Pure Magic will have a point of view on various topics...no gyan but a funny take. Apart from the TVC, there's a whole lot of digital videos, topical stuff and a solid 360 campaign overall. On this, the client team at Britannia is letting us have a cookie of a time!”

The 360-degree campaign will be led by television and digital platforms, including YouTube and social, as well as print.

By exchange4media Staff | Feb 4, 2023 8:57 AM   |   2 min read

Tide

Detergent brand Tide has unveiled a ‘laundry music video’ khachak khuchak chod do’ video featuring comedian Kiku Sharda. 

"The word ‘Khachak Khuchak' is the sound of arduous scrubbing that consumers have to do when washing clothes by hand. Indian families spend up to 300 hours^ every year hand-washing clothes. With Tide detergent, consumers can save up to 40% of the time spent doing laundry. Tide removes tough stains like gravy, oil and mud easily without any scrubbing and is asking consumers to say goodbye to khachak khuchak in this new video,” the brand said.

The video has Kiku Sharda grooving to the lyrics and a hook step that says goodbye to scrubbing to remove tough stains like oil, gravy, and dirt from clothes and welcomes ‘khachak khuchak’-free new year with the Tide range of detergents. Through this cult-music video, Tide continues to connect with consumers across India by innovating new trends. The video has been launched across Tide’s social media channels including YouTube, Instagram, and Facebook.

Sharat Verma, Chief Marketing Officer, P&G India and Vice President and Fabric Care Head for P&G Indian subcontinent said, “Tide is known for its quirky and fun advertising which is in sync with pop culture. Our messaging is focused on Tide’s core benefit of whiteness and stain removal while adding a bit of humour to the, sometimes, mundane chore of laundry. Taking this further, Tide has launched the music video ‘Khachak Khuchak’ which uses the sound of scrubbing to bring to life Tide Double Power’s benefit of outstanding stain removal and whiteness without scrubbing.”

EatFit vs Kellogg’s: ASCI approached over ad 'plagiarism'

EatFit claims that Kellogg's lifted its “Kuchh Kar Dikhane Ki Bhook” campaign launched for the ICC world cup last November and used the same tagline in the latter’s campaign

By Kanchan Srivastava | Feb 3, 2023 1:40 PM   |   2 min read

Kelloggs Eatfit

EatFit, a homegrown health food platform, on Thursday, approached the Advertising Standard Council of India (ASCI) alleging that global cereal brand Kellogg’s has lifted its advertisement “Kuchh Kar Dikhane Ki Bhook” launched for the ICC world cup last November and used the same tagline in the latter’s campaign. 

ASCI CEO and Secretary General Manisha Kapoor confirmed the development and said that the self-regulatory body will initiate a probe as per its process. “We received the complaint yesterday. It will be duly investigated as per our process,” Kapoor told e4m. 

Kellogg’s and Ogilvy's responses to EatFit’s allegations are awaited. The copy will be updated when the global brand and the agency respond. 

EatFit claims that it launched the campaign with the same name during the ICC Men’s international T20 World Cup 2022. This campaign was also aired on ‘Shark Tank’ India, where EatFit was a sponsor of both the show and the cricket tournament.

EatFit TVC, Nov 2022

Kellogg’s TVC against which EatFit has moved ASCI 

Without naming the global brand, Ankit Nagori, Founder, Curefoods, says, “Plagiarism in advertising is not acceptable. It is unethical and takes away the value of art, hard work, and creativity of the brand in creating the original idea. Our campaign 'Kuch Kar Dikhane ki Bhook' was conceptualized by an individual artist. We're extremely disappointed to see a global brand reuse the exact same concept and tagline, without doing their due diligence.”

Urging the brand to take down this campaign, Nagori added, “India needs to safeguard the efforts of individual artists and push back on blatant plagiarism. Let's come together to support originality, the value of creativity and give recognition where it's due."

Meanwhile, Kellog's release a new film with Milind Soman as part of the campaign.
