“AapkaChaltaPhirta TV” Mirchi’s new campaign for dittoTV
Mirchi’s Creative Services (CS) team hasonce again crafted an insight driven campaign and this time for the much talked aboutapp ‘dittoTV’. The campaign thought “AapkaChaltaPhirtaTV” communicated the essence of the product offering in one line.
Radio has an inherent USP i.e. one can listen to radio “chaltephirte”. Similarly Ditto TV enabled consumers to watch TV in real time, and that too from anywhere. After all who wants to miss their favorite shows! Based on this insight the CS team came up with the campaign thought of, “Aapkachaltaphirta TV”. The thought was communicated to the listeners in a fun filled way with elements like, “Agar TV ke paav (legs) hotetohaap TV kokahankahanlekarjate aur TV dekhnakahanpasandkarte?”
Mirchi has not only seeded these unusual ideas but has also decided to amplify the campaign through on-ground activities across India. An example of an activity is a character called ‘TVji’ (in picture) who approaches unsuspecting people at bus stands and colleges and plays live TV for them. In fact, TVji played KumkumBhagyafor a female listener at a shopping center who was about to miss her favorite show, leaving her pleasantly surprised.
