TVC Tells the Story of Safe Painting
In a brand new TVC developed by Ogilvy Mumbai, this proposition is told through a funny story of a couple, their inquisitive neighbour and the Asian Paints Safe Painting Service Supervisor who is taking care of everything.
The campaign, devised for consumers in Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, has a mix of TVC, trade, digital and social media assets.
Prem Narayan, Chief Strategy Officer, Ogilvy India: “There is a strong emotional need amongst people to paint their homes to brighten spirits and bring happiness. However, there is also the need to get it done safely. Asian Paints fulfils that need brilliantly through the ‘Supervised Safe Painting service’. It’s real differentiator is the ‘supervisor’. Someone who takes the worry of ensuring things are done properly and safely, on their shoulders, rather than leave it to the customer.
This advertisement is to communicate the ‘Supervised Safe Painting Proposition’ and all the safety measures that Asian Paints takes. It builds on a local phrase ‘Ellam avar pattupar’, which is used colloquially to say ‘HE’ will take care of everything.
We feel communicating this will create awareness and convince a lot of people in Tamil Nadu to paint their homes now and bring the brightness and happiness they so eagerly seek leading up to Pongal.”
