Center Fruit Joins Forest Rangers for the day
Perfetti Van Melle India’s leading gum brand has launched a new campaign for its popular gum brand Center fruit. Center fruit has always been loved by consumers for its great taste and enjoyable campaigns, with its well-recognized tagline of ‘Kaisi Jeebh laplapayi’.
Carrying forward this evergreen proposition, the newest ad for Center Fruit from O&M Mumbai, is a story with a twist that unfolds in a thick jungle. Its quirky plot coupled with an insightful product device of tongue wagging, presents an enjoyable story of using the Center fruit irresistibility in a humorous way.
Presenting a fun take on apprehending hidden robbers, the commercial opens with a search party of forest rangers under fire from hidden robbers. The search party takes cover and starts a counter operation to catch the robbers. The drill turns the dismal scenario on its head by way of forest rangers using Center Fruit to locate hidden robbers. As a Center Fruit banner is unfurled, the robbers can’t stop themselves from wagging their tongues at it. A young sharpshooter, guided only by the sound of their laplap, starts firing darts towards robbers, aiming right each time, capturing them all one by one. The commercial highlights that Center fruit is so irresistible that even the robbers in this situation are unable to hide their craving, and come out of hiding wagging their tongues.
“The beauty of the idea lies in the forest ranger’s aim proving right each time, despite not being able to see the robbers in the thick forest, and only following them through the sound of their LapLap. Hence proving, how irresistible Center Fruit can be, and how hilariously effective it is in bringing down the robbers.” quips Anurag Agnihotri, Executive Creative Director, O&M, Mumbai.
Commenting on the new campaign, Arun Sharma, Associate Category Director - Marketing, Perfetti Van Melle India says "Based our work with consumers we felt that it was time to refresh the way we portray the role of brand, without changing the popular brand signature of tongue wagging and popular tagline. Through this film we have tried to bring in newness to the story and we are sure consumers will find it endearing ".
