Airtel uses Instagram to ‘Save’ its fans!

As the T20 fever reached its culmination, Airtel India, in collaboration with its digital agency Dentsu Webchutney, turned avid Instagrammers into detectives with the launch of their #T20VillainHunt. Here, a T20 villain stood for anyone and anything that dared to interrupt an audience’sT20 viewing experience.

The #T20VillainHunt was released on Instagram as a two-part series. Users were encouraged to find hidden clues within a given story to reveal the T20 Villain. Consumers had to make an innovative use of Instagram’s ‘Save to Collection’ feature to do this. If they cracked the clues and saved the images in the right order, it revealed the face of the villain in their profile’s ‘Saved’ folder.



“We are always looking for the next novel hack on social and Instagram never disappoints us. We’ve got a fair amount of experience when it comes to Instagram hunts but this is for the first time that we deployed the use of the ‘Save to Collection’ feature to create, what I believe is our toughest hunt yet,” added P.G. Aditya, Executive Creative Director at Dentsu Webchutney, the digital agency from the house of Dentsu Aegis Network India.

Social hacks aside, this idea was well-versed with Instagram’s visual nature too. “While all the grids had to come together seamlessly to set the plot of the story on Airtel’s profile, the selection of the correct grids after cracking the clues, had to form the villain’s face and reveal their identity in a user’s ‘Saved’ folder. Hiding something in plain sight was definitely our biggest challenge,” said Ashwin Palkar, Senior Creative Director at Dentsu Webchutney.



And while solving the clues was a meticulous process, it didn’t discourage Airtel’s detectives from hunting down the villains. Within 3 days, over 250 fans correctly cracked the code to what was another truly innovative use of Instagram.
