Hinduja's innovative marketing via Pune IPL team

MUMBAI: For the first time in 10 years of the IPL, cricket fans are expressing their passion for their team and its heroes through a unique, one-of-its-kind digital marketing solution.

In the ongoing IPL 2017, HGS Interactive (HGSi) has helped Gulf Oil Lubricants India Limited, principal sponsor of the Rising Pune SuperGiant, create a unique customer experience for fans of the team as they follow their players’ exploits and cheer them on. It has designed a clutter-breaking and innovative activation – an IOT-based LED t-shirt for fans that can light up on the press or trigger of a button on the t-shirt or any Android device. So, whenever a player from the RPS team hits a ball for a six or four, or bags a wicket, fans wearing the t-shirt could light up ‘4, 6 or Out’ – similar to the TV screen, and cheer their team.

“The big idea was to marry technology and the fans’ love for their team and players and come up with a disruptive solution that helps Gulf Oil easily stand out in the crowd. These IOT-based LED t-shirts transform cricket fans into human banners cheering their team,” said Sachin Karweer, Business Head, HGS Interactive, which is the digital business unit of BPM firm Hinduja Global Solutions Limited (HGS) .

“The IOT-based LED t-shirt is testimony to Gulf Oil Lubricants’ passion for innovation. Fans and the game have converged with this disruptive wearable technology, thus creating an unmatched experience for the spectators of the sport,” said Ravi Chawla, Managing Director, Gulf Oil Lubricants India Limited (GOLIL), adding, “We will continue to embrace such trends and continue to excite our audience and cricket fans all across the country.”

The innovative fan t-shirt initiative is part of an aggressive marketing campaign unleashed at the 10th edition of IPL by Gulf Oil. The campaign titled “GulfGoFarHarBaar” is currently running in RPS’ home base Pune, and also features the Gulf Fan Bus, Radio Experience, digital videos of players and their interviews. The Gulf Oil campaign intends to communicate the message of “Performing under Pressure” through digital, radio and OOH channels to excite and build a deeper connect with RPS fans.
