Stand-up comedians make it big in the Indian ad world

From Mallika Dua's Tata Capital campaign to Mid-Day roping in Jamie Lever, several brands such as Hyundai, Tata Motors & Durex have gone for comic artists


From leveraging celebrity stardom and glamour to roping in unconventional stand-up comedians, the Indian creative industry sure has come a long way.

A band of digital-era comedians have been taking over ad-land and how! From Mid-Day leveraging the comic magic of Jamie Lever in their ad campaign to Tata Capital Wedding Loan bringing out the laughs with comic artist Mallika Dua in their recent spot, creative comic collaborations are pretty much becoming commonplace.

Marketers naturally noticed people gravitate towards these stars. So they leverage the reach of the comedy stars either through endorsements or creative collaborations as they have a finger on the crowd’s pulse. Brands such as Hyundai, Tata Motors, Durex, HDFC Life and Aegon Religare have capitalized on them to release some interesting work.

Varun Khullar, Creative Director, Happy mcgarrybowen asserts that leveraging stand-up comics is a more nuanced call as they are very creative people and help with the actual process of creating communication.

“In the last few years, have seen a sort of celebdom enter the world of stand-up comedy than ever before. The comedy scene in India has finally erupted and the shock waves are reaching far and wide. People today resonate more with a stand-up comedian than a celebrity, despite the latter being a wee bit more popular. While conventional celebs are used as ‘pretty faces’, the employment of stand-up comics is a more refined call. Comics these days have their following, and more importantly, their own point of view. They are names with a distinct voice rather than just a recognizable face,” Khullar pointed out.

Sometime back, Heineken teamed up with Indian comedian Rudy Singh for their campaign "Generations Apart" that went viral and gained over 1,66,000 views on YouTube. 

Popular comics Kanan Gill, Kenny Sebastian, Tanmay Bhat and Kaneez Surkha have featured in several ads during the last few years. Bobby Pawar, Chairman, Havas Group who worked on the campaign during his stint with Publicis India suggests that the use of a stand-up comedian has to be more strategic in nature. “If you just use them to merely say a frivolous joke without the brand and the message integrated into it, it doesn’t work well,” says Pawar.

Let’s face it: Many people are skeptical when it comes to advertisements. And humour forces them to lower their defences and catches people off-guard. It helps embed brands in a social conversation. No wonder, brands sponsor live shows, video content, and other such activities. 

Shrenik Gandhi, Cheif Executive Officer and Co-founder, White Rivers Media points out that this is a bigger trend on digital than on TV. “Humour always catches attention. Netizens love to consume funny, quirky content. The bigger benefit is, most of them are rising stars and are very strong on digital. The former gets them at a competitive cost and latter enables better reach.” Gandhi adds that another interesting insight is, since they are not yet larger than life celebrities, people connect with them faster and better.

Kiran Khalap, Co-founder and Managing Director, Chlorophyll Brand & Communications says stand-up comedians bring their own brand of humour and their own community of followers that is worth capitalising on. The new maxim of branding is "Think 365, not 360", which means a brand needs to connect with its stakeholders every day of the year and not just when the product or service is consumed, Khalap said. “Roping in a stand-up comedian is an interesting way to connect: they bring their own brand of humour and own community of followers. For instance, a Zakir Khan has a huge following among youngsters whose first language is Hindi, while a Kannan Gill for those whose first language is English...and so on. The current rules of consumer engagement begin with likeability, more than awareness. Hence, once again, a stand-up comedian raises the benchmark,” Khalap said.

Ek Desh, Ek Hum campaign brings the narrative of togetherness across the country

Veteran advertising professional, Praveen Kenneth, along with filmmaker Pradeep Sarkar & musician Dhruv Ghanekar launch 'Ek Desh, Ek Hum’ video

ek Desh ek Hum

Praveen Kenneth, founder Law&Kenneth, and who retired last year as chairman of Law&Kenneth | Saatchi & Saatchi, has launched a campaign under the platform of ‘Ek Desh, Ek Hum’. The platform kicks off with a video that stresses on the theme of ‘Stronger Together’ theme.

Stating on the intent of the messaging, Kenneth said, “What we are conveying is not new. It’s simple, it’s obvious. We all know the Magic of India is the amazing diversity of its people, across cultures and religion. Our life is fuller, vibrant, expanded, thanks to our Hindu, Christian, Muslim, Sikh, Jain, Buddhists friends, brothers and sisters. I believe this is the underlying strength of our Nation. The important thing however is that we need to keep bringing this back into the Center stage of Conversation and Consciousness. It’s like brushing teeth- it needs to be gotten into our collective Consciousness -always. And this needs to be a on-going and a engaging conversation- Nation Above All. A nations' health and progress is directly proportional to the quality of the collective and inclusiveness of the society- and that’s the truth. We all know and have been taught this from school - that only in connection there is Progress/Growth/Joy, and in DisConnection - there is pain, suffering, chaos.”

Kenneth said, “In a daily life which zigzags through understandable difference, disagreements, arguments and loud and angry debates - which is the beauty of a democracy and always encouraged - the interest of India and Indians , should and will always be the in the centre. The campaign is an effort to bring back this conversations. This effort will be wasted if this ends up trying to pick up holes and complaining  instead, to focus on moving forward, always improving, always enabling , always looking at the bigger picture of Great Progress.”

The ‘Ek Desh, Ek Hum’— launch video has been directed by noted filmmaker Pradeep Sarkar while the music has been scored by the Dhruv Ghanekar and the lyrics have been penned by Ishita Arun. The video shows a young nation awakening to the need to come together. The narrative of togetherness is spread by people across the country, from every section of society and incorporates India’s great diversity.
“Togetherness is strength - this is the singular message that we want to convey,” Kenneth said.

The video is accompanied by Twitter push that will be hosted on #Ekdeshekhum. This will be supported by extensive TV and radio support.

“We hope to reach out to people across the political and civil spectrum, taking along all ideologies and views. In the end, everyone wants growth, progress and fraternity – for that, we need to remind ourselves , the very much used adage - UNITY IN DIVERSITY," Kenneth said.

Indian youth should move from 'YOLO' to 'YAGO' in personal care: Poulomi Roy, RSH Global

Guest Column: Poulomi Roy, Chief Marketing Officer, RSH Global explains why Indian youth need to move from the 'You Only Live Once' philosophy to 'You Also Grow Old' in terms of personal care

by Poulomi Roy
Published - 6 hours ago
Poulomi Roy

YOLO or ‘You Only Live Once’. If there is anyone who has adopted this ethos – it’s ‘Millennials’. Millennials or Gen Y have a certain carefree attitude and believe in enjoying a fuller life today, but at what cost? And as millennials get older, a new generation is coming of age – the Generation Z-ers, which is not very dissimilar to the millennials. In fact, a Bloomberg analysis of United Nations data notes that Gen Z will comprise 32% percent of the global population in 2019, surpassing millennials by half a percentage.

The millennials and Gen Z need to wake up to another stark reality –'YAGO' or ‘You Also Grow Old’, and it becomes important for us as marketers to enable this shift in the mindset of the young Indian consumers from the YOLO to YAGO approach.

To be sure, the YOLO to YAGO, as a concept, has long been synonymous with the financial planning sector—and for obvious reasons. But this very idea today has an unmistakable resonance for the personal care industry. Global warming is a serious concern today with 16 out of 17 hottest years being observed since the start of the millennium. Asian countries are rushing to fight toxic air pollution as well. As months get hotter and because of environmental pollution, the Gen Y and Gen Z are increasingly facing skin problems. Pigmentation and wrinkles, for instance, were once a problem that the middle-aged faced. But no longer. Now, even those in their 30s complain of wrinkled or pigmented skin.

In a tropical country like India, summers are the time when a plethora of brands launches their products in an advertising blitzkrieg, often leaving the young consumers bewildered.

The Indian market has been flooded with skin care products that claim to provide instant benefits. What many of the younger generations fail to recognise is that instant gratification comes at a cost, with personal care products laced with chemicals that harm their skin and bodies. It is often tempting for a 30-year-old, for example, to pick an instant gratification product and mask his or her wrinkles. They, however, need to be persuaded into investing in good skincare products with natural extracts. This is one of the areas where marketers could play a key part, making consumers aware of the benefits of better, chemical-free personal care products.

To combat the new-age skin menace, it’s important that as personal care manufacturers, we formulate products keeping the YAGO ideology in mind and in the same breath while marketing these products, inculcate the YAGO concept in our approach.

While eating right and healthy is essential, starting a skincare regimen at a much younger age is vital.  After all ‘You Also Grow Old’.

Used car dealers spend heavily on advertising as market tipped to grow rapidly

The automobile industry on an average is growing in single digits but the pre-owned car market is growing at more than 15% per annum

Used Car market

The craze of purchasing used cars is witnessing an upsurge as compared to the desire to buy new cars in India. India is the third largest automobile market in the world, worth close to $300 billion. After e-commerce, India is emerging as a nation that is attracting the most amount of car buyers in the globe.

Despite many products launches in the passenger vehicle segment, the auto sector saw no cheer during the last festive season. But, the used car market is growing at a tremendous pace.

As per the data by Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM) released in 2018, at nearly four million used cars the used car market is 1.25 times bigger than the new car market that saw sales of 3.2 million units last financial year.

Also, CRISIL in its report stated that almost two in every three cars sold in the country are used cars. It further said that the used car market will grow at a steady pace of 15 per cent till 2020.

The major reason behind the growth of the used market could be seen as its table turning into much organised place, and the emergence of new players in the market. CarDekho, OLX, Droom, CARS24, Mahindra First choice and others have shown that there is lot to do in the market.

As the market is on a growth period, it has been noticed that the brands are spending high on advertising to connect with the audience well.

CarDekho incurred advertising expenses of Rs 62 crore in 2016 while CarTrade and CarWale together touched the advertising and promotional expenses to almost Rs 161 crore. Droom spent Rs 20.6 crore for advertising and marketing alone in 2016. Droom last year, allocated 400 crore marketing budget, out of which 150 crore is slated to be spent on digital medium.

But why the used cars are turning out to be better bargains for consumers as compared to new ones? According to Sunny Kataria, Vice President - Auto Category, OLX Group, “Pre-owned cars offer a distinct pricing advantage versus new ones. Data from our platform suggests that pre-owned cars can be almost 20-30 per cent cheaper as compare to the new ones. We came across a trend where users are selling their almost new cars which are barely a year or two old on OLX at a significant discount. Frequent car launches have also made it attractive for users to switch cars.”

To expand its business, OLX last year announced its offline expansion in the used car market and has plans to set up 150 outlets in 40 cities across India by 2021.

We reached out to brands and asked them why they are spending big on advertising and what is the opportunity in this sector. Sandeep Aggarwal, Founder & CEO, Droom explained, “In the used segment, only 15 per cent of the cars are sold through the organised channel such as Cars24, CarNation, Mahindra First Choice etc. The remaining 85 per cent is the part of unorganised sector. Whereas for two wheelers its almost 100 per cent organised. In the online segment, we are leading most of the online automobile transactions happening on the platform and for offline it’s a combination of Mahindra First Choice, Carnation, Maruti True Value, CashMyCar, Cars24 etc. So looking at the huge opportunity the spend on advertising is completely justified given that India automobile industry is worth 12 per cent of India’s GDP.”

Aggarwal believes, the opportunity is massive at this current point in the used cars. “The automobile industry on an average is growing in single digits, and the pre-owned car market is growing at 15 per cent + per annum. In 2018, the passenger vehicle market recorded sales of 3.4 million units while OLX alone sold about 3 million cars,” he explained. 

According to M Sathiyanarayan, Head - Marketing, Mahindra First Choice Wheels, “Advertising in the used car industry should be seen in context of the structure of the industry. The advertising spends are also emerging from players who are trying to create brand recall in their respective domains”.

He also revealed, “OLX occupies 77 per cent of market share in India’s pre-owned car market out of the market size of 3.8 million units, a large chunk of the car business sellers still sell offline.” 
Sharing a regional break-up of the car listings, he said, “55 per cent of sales come from tier one markets. The remaining 45 per cent from tier two cities.” 

According to a media report, Mahindra First Choice has seen 40-50 per cent growth over last year. Small SUVs have registered a tremendous growth rate over the recent years, which is expected to record the highest sales growth in the used car market till 2023.

With 50 per cent growth in the last year, how do experts see the industry flourishing five years from now? Aggarwal said, “We are a part of an automobile sector which is 12 per cent of India GDP or $300 billion annual worth industry. But out of this $300 billion only $1.25 billion is online. In next 5 years, we think this $300 billion will become around $450 billion worth industry and the online share will go up to $20 billion.” 

Sathiyanarayan, shares, “Used car industry in India is still in its nascent phase with only 15 per cent of the industry being organised. We believe that migration from two wheelers to four wheelers is going to happen through used cars, which means the industry will attract a lot of first time buyers.”

Kataria stated, “The industry will evolve at a much rapid rate akin to the developed markets. Offline sellers will throng to online marketplaces to offer their products and the consumer journey will become more seamless. The industry will evolve to offer ancillary products such as insurance and financing as pre-owned car marketplaces become a one-stop shop for all the consumer needs."

10K retweets will bring back Parle's Rola Cola!

Parle Products has promised to revive the childhood candy of kids from the 90s if fans are able to crowdsource 10,000 retweets

Parle Rola Cola

Remember the cola-flavoured candy from the 90’s - Rola Cola - that went out of production in 2006? If Twitterati can exert the power of social media and band together 10,000 tweets in favour of the popular candy that is intrinsic to the childhood of every 90’s kid, Parle Products has promised to revive this lost candy. 

How did all this come to be? Well, Siddharth Sai G  from Kerala, a big fan of Rola Cola, tweeted about his love for Rola Cola and how much he misses the childhood treat. Siddharth tagged the iconic brand’s maker-Parle Products - with a plea to restart production of the much-loved candy. His tweet said, “how many retweets would it take to bring the candy back in production?” 

In a surprising response, Parle Products shot back with a tweet saying that a total 10,000 retweets with the hashtag #BringBackRolaCola would set the ball rolling for Rola Cola’s production. That was on February 13, 2018. Within five days, Siddharth has managed 1,200 retweets. He’s also brought his campaign to the attention of Google, Netflix, Swiggy and Zomato.

It is unclear if Rola Cola lovers like Siddharth will be able to accumulate 10,000 tweets or how long it would take for the tweets to be amassed. But this incident shows that social media has changed the way brands and consumers interact and has brought about power to make the consumer’s voice heard like no other platform. 

Love your Rola Cola, why don’t you retweet?
