Flipkart’s ‘The Big Billion Days’ campaign makes India flip with great deals
Flipkart Big Billion days has become India’s most anticipated shopping event. This year, the focus was on building a package, bigger than ever for the customers that included great offers, exciting new launches, multiple new games and mega rewards. This was woven into the theme of the campaign. Conceptualized in collaboration with McCann Worldgroup, this year’s campaign highlighted how people flip when they discover all the offerings on Flipkart Big Billion Days.
The campaign comprises a series of TVCs featuring characters portrayed by India’s most-loved celebrities, flipping from their behavior. The TVCs feature Amitabh Bachchan, Virat Kohli, Alia Bhat, Sudeep and Mahesh Babu playing interesting characters who each have their own unique character & behavior. The light-hearted stories focus on how the characters flip their behavior upon discovering Flipkart Big Billion Days.
Prasoon Joshi (Chairman McCann Worldgroup, Asia Pacific, CEO &CCO McCann Worldgroup, India) said “A brand carries in itself layers of images and a narrative to engage and build a unique relationship. Flipkart has always struck a chord with audiences with its communication and we really value this partnership. This campaign will add a new dimension to the relationship between the brand and the audience.”
