Black & White Gettogethers invite you to celebrate the true power of sharing
Black & White Gettogethers, from Diageo India, today launched their first-ever India-specific TVC Conceptualised by J Walter Thompson Bangalore and inspired by the brand message “Made of Sharing”, the TVC tells us how life gets magnificent when one truly shares oneself. It is a commercial that exhorts us to go out there and share moments and experiences with strangers.
Set against the lavish and breath-taking landscapes of Portugal, the story takes us through the journey of a protagonist who is travelling, watching a movie or going for a run; scenarios which are part of the life of a young millennial. This is in keeping with Black & White’s philosophy of encouraging the young, successful millennials to share and open up for richer outcomes in life.
The commercial has been shot in black and white as it provides an evocative canvas for the emotions and situations on display. It also creates a larger-than-life cinematic effect that transports and transfixes the viewer. Not to mention the undeniable brand connect.
Abhishek Shahabadi, Portfolio head, Diageo India said: “The commercial was created with the aim of spreading the message that personal satisfaction comes from sharing the good things in life, with people around us. The storyboard motivates people to step out and share a bit of themselves, urging them not to hold back, thereby enriching their lives.”
Talking about the insight behind the commercial, Priya Shivakumar, ECD & Senior VP, JWT said “The insight was inspired by Black & White’s brand message ‘Life tastes better when shared’. We are so caught up in our daily lives that we barely get a moment to step back and enjoy time with our friends and loved ones. We are happy to be a part of the first ever TVC by Black and White in India and hope this inspires people to go out and share some of the best moments of their life.”
The TVC has been directed by Jamie Muir, an acclaimed London-based filmmaker and photographer known for “Drawing and Dreams”, a part of the 2014 Cupidity Series which won the Silver Lion at Cannes Film Festival. He has also worked on some of the best ad films curated for brands like Chevrolet, HSBC and Google.
