The year seems to be a happy business annual year for the former Indian cricket team captain MS Dhoni as after a series of brand endorsements deals in the last couple of months, MS Dhoni has once again been called in to be the face of an ad campaign, this time he is being banked by the CK Birla Group-owned Orient Electric.
The Orient electric has launched an ad campaign featuring MS Dhoni to promote its BEE- 5- Star rated LED bulbs.
In order to tap over the rising electric bills, the ad suggests people to switch to BEE 5-Star rated LED bulbs which the company has launched recently in its economical segment.
Anshuman Chakravarty, Head Brand and Corporate Communication, Orient Electric Limited, said, “We were the first Indian brand to receive BEE 3-star rating in 2016 for our LED bulbs and once again, we are the first to have voluntarily adopted BEE 5-star rating. The campaign tries to increase awareness about the benefits of switching to BEE 5-star rated LED bulbs, which deliver 120 lumens per watt and are 30% brighter than BEE 3-star rated bulbs.”
“The new TV commercial urges people to switch ‘Haq Se’ to Orient’s highly efficient 5-star rated bulbs. MS Dhoni has a longstanding association with us and therefore he was our natural choice for this campaign,” Chakravarty added.
Mayur Hola, EVP and ECD, Contract Delhi, said, “Orient Electric has emerged as a brand leader as well as a thought leader in the LED lighting category. In the cluttered lighting category, most conversations revolve around cost savings and energy efficiency. Orient’s differentiator is that their LED bulbs are 5-star rated and brighter at a time when other brands only really meet the government’s 3-star mandate. So, we decided to deposition 3-star rated LED bulbs by labelling them ordinary. Light-hearted and clear, the messaging drives this home with a tongue-in-cheek song accompanying it.”
