MUMBAI: Hero once again plans to capture the imagination of the youth with its latest commercial, conceptualised by Draftfcb+Ulka, that is a true celebration of ‘boyhood’ with the Hero Maestro – a scooter that’s made for boys.
The idea is to bring out the behaviour of today's boys and give an enjoyable, light twist and who better to play the role of the quintessential boy than Ranbir Kapoor. Continuing his long standing relationship with Hero, Ranbir brings his inimitable style and incredible talent to this story and makes it more memorable than ever.
Draftfcb+Ulka Delhi group creative director Sanjay Sharma said, “We wanted to bring out the ‘boyish’ attitude which Maestro stands for in a way that is relevant to the contemporary society. It’s a new dimension – a light hearted take on the way future is dear to the girls and present to the boys.”
The commercial has seen an overwhelming initial response. Draftfcb+Ulka Delhi COO Sanjay Tandon said, “Maestro is a brand built around boyish idiosyncrasies. To further reinforce the positioning success of the brand, Ranbir exudes his boyish charm through a typical "men are from mars. women are from venus" storyline.”
Adding to this, Draftfcb+Ulka, Delhi VP Sharad Mathur said, “The aim was to play up the ‘boyish’ attitude through the product as well as in a setting which most of the youngsters can easily relate to. Ranbir effortlessly exudes a playful boyish charm which along with the music and setting brings out Maestro’s attitude and its celebration of boyhood.”
Shot in Fort Kochi, Kerala, along the quiet roads and vibrant backgrounds, the commercial truly stands out for its visual style and witty dialogue.
