Every brand needs a story that resonates with its audience. As Diwali approaches, many companies have come through with advertisements that highlight various aspects of the festival of lights, from the tales that come from it to highlight the lesser-seen aspects of it.
In this TalkOver, we’ll discuss some of our favorite Diwali campaigns. Marketers highlighting what we love about marketing!
Today we will explore brilliant Diwali campaigns from Luminous and Real Fruit Powers conceived by our very own team! Discover how these ads struck an emotional chord by embodying the festival’s deeper meaning. Let’s get into what exactly made these ads brighten our day.
Since they are a company that deals in lights and electricity, the expectations for Diwali campaigns from Luminous are high, and they definitely met them this year. The story is simple, brought to life by well-done shots and metaphorical language, exploring how Diwali isn’t just a festival, but a day of hope for a better future.
The ad follows a driver working for a wealthy family. On Diwali, he has no time to be there in person for his own family, pausing only to make sure his house has a light, not for celebration, but for education. He must make sure his daughter receives all the support possible to become a doctor. He toils endlessly and his struggles are rewarded by a Diwali bonus by his employer; the gift of light. This time, both for celebration and education. A straightforward story, but 3.5 million views in merely a week shows the importance of including stories that have a bit of everything associated with Diwali.
The campaign stressed the importance of family, ideals of sacrifice, and generosity, and brought a fitting ending of a happy daughter looking up at recently installed Diwali lights, brightening her face. Those lights weren’t just a moment of happiness but resembled an entire world of possibilities.
Real Fruit Power
Whereas Real Fruit Power also won the hearts of 8.9 million viewers. In the heartfelt Real Fruit Power advertisement, a dedicated constable goes above and beyond, delivering Diwali hampers to his colleagues and commissioner while skipping his lunch upon a call from his superior.
While everyone relishes being home during Diwali, Alok has no off and he is supposed to serve the night shift, After delivering the hampers and completing his task he briefly visits his family, leaving them unaware of his duty-bound absence. His joyous children and wife look forward to celebrating Diwali with Alok but little do they know that Alok won’t be able to, saddened by this he’s interrupted by a doorbell – it’s his Madam Sir.
Worried, Alok questions if he missed anyone, but Madam Sir smiles and says ‘Jo humari greetings sab tak pohochata hai uske liye real greetings to banti hai’ emphasizing the significance of reaching out to those closest to us.
The ad’s core message urges acknowledging and caring for our closest aides, reminding us amidst gifting loved ones that those who truly support us also deserve recognition.
This Diwali, extend gratitude through Dabur Real Greetings, sharing the gift of fruit nutrition with those who genuinely care. Real Fruit Power ad profoundly resonates with its audience, imparting a touching message likely to linger in the hearts of viewers.
Both campaigns deliver a strong yet touching message to the viewers, prompting their emotions to take action for the welfare of others.
These ads are exactly why we choose to be marketers. They go beyond Diwali being a single day and expand it into something that can ignite a flame in people to not only achieve their goals but also share their humanity. A feeling everyone needs.
Choosing a winner between these two campaigns is hard, but watching them was a pleasure. What do you think? Let us know which campaign lit up your day!
