NEW DELHI: E-commerce has surely taken off well in the country and to woo shoppers, online retailers are finding new ways to reach out to them.

Yepme.com, an online fashion brand, has launched its very own music video featuring as brand ambassador, the actor and director, Farhan Akhtar. The music video titled ‘Tension Kyun Lete Ho Yaar.’ aims to capture the essence of the lifestyle of Yepme’s target audience - style conscious men and women between the ages of 20 to 29 years.

Yepme.com CEO Vivek Gaur said, “We are very excited to launch this music video. The video is one of its kinds in terms of use of special effects and transitions - and captures the slice of life of today’s youth in a fun and unusual way. This is a completely fresh approach to build a connect with today’s youth and we are confident that the song and visuals will make way to the heart and minds of everyone – especially since Farhan is an iconic figure amongst Indian youth, and is a class apart from others, being a singer-songwriter, actor, director, a multi-talented artist – he is someone who is liked, respected and also highly relatable for our audience.”

Gaur added, “The brand’s mission is to democratise fashion in India and ensure that men and women, even in the smallest of cities have access to the latest designs in couture, accessories and footwear, at affordable price points.’’ The company has built its business around the Fast Fashion Model with an inherent advantage of single warehouse servicing and real time analytics developed on its own technology backend.

The music video has been directed by Sujaat Saudagar and showcases Akhtar going through a regular day, dealing with even difficult moments in a positive and upbeat way. Akhtar wears several Yepme outfits in the course of the video, showcasing the wide range of the brand – the clothes from the video are launched as an exclusive limited-edition Farhan Akhtar range on Yepme.com.

Akhtar said, ‘It’s a very optimistic song and this is something that ties in with the philosophy of the brand (Yepme) which wants you to feel better about yourself. The online world and access to ordering things online has made things simpler – and there are times you want to just celebrate by buying yourself something, so it ties in well.’’

The full can be viewed on Yepme’s website, YouTube and with the DTH service providers like Tata Sky, Airtel, Dish TV, etc.  Further, promotional ad campaigns using the video will be created for Yepme’s television and radio reach out.
