moneycontrol.com does a song-and dance around the Budget
moneycontrol.com recently launched its Budget 2013 campaign “Budget Moves, Chidambaram Style” , which shows our Finance Minister grooving to some very unique dance moves.
The latest commercial shows a number of quirky moves that include Kainchi Cut and Bull Walk as part of the Minister’s repertoire of dance steps. The idea for this campaign was an extension of the campaign proposition from last year “Rock the Sabha” which had key politicians like P. Chidambaram, M. Karunanidhi, Mamta Banerjee and the then-Finance Minister, Mr.Pranab Mukherjee playing guitars and jiving to the beats of rock music.
The set of 4 very entertaining films bring a dash of irreverence to the serious brand and adds the right amount of masala to the complete and exhaustive Budget 2013 coverage of moneycontrol.com.
Budget 2013 on moneycontrol.com is a complete package which part from streaming the FM’s speech LIVE also includes interactive elements like poll, debates, slideshows, online chats, LIVE blogging and videos.
Speaking about the campaign, Mr Rajan Srinivasan, Marketing Head, Web18 said, “The fact that the biggest and the best coverage of the Budget happens on moneycontrol.com is not news. But the fact that we have made it interactive to ensure that that we get a new generation of users interested in the Budget was something that we wanted to communicate with this campaign and I think that objective has been achieved. The look is fresh and edgy and will definitely strike a chord with the audience”.
Kaushik Roy, Senior Creative Director, Contract Advertising said “Inspired by last year’s success, we decided to push the creative further this time, to be more entertaining and in-your-face. So this time around, it’s all about dance! With the finance minister, accompanied by his glamorous dancers, educating us on various ‘financial moves’ through specially choreographed dance steps. We’re excited and eager to see how this campaign does in the marketplace.”
