Lowe Lintas creates Fastrack's new ad campaign

MUMBAI: Fastrack, the youth fashion brand, has launched a new ad campaign -"Blame Fastrack and Move On" that has been created by Lowe Lintas.

The objective of the campaign is to redirect the blame that the youth of today face from everyone around them. It is targeted to youth of 18-24 years of age.

Fastrack marketing head Simeran Bhasin said, "The TVC appeals to the youth of today who are aggressive and passionate and ultimately lead to a better brand connect. The Blame Fastrack campaign draws inspiration the youth of today and hopes to liberate them from the pre decided moral rules of the society."

The company plans to roll out a total of three commercials. The subsequent two TVCs are for watches and sunglasses and will be launched in the coming months.

Talking about the brief that was given to the agency Lowe Lintas executive creative director Akash Das said, "The youth today are the most blamed lot for things that they do or don‘t. Constantly persecuted by parents, teachers, politicians, moral police, girlfriends, boyfriends, it‘s certainly a difficult age to be. Fastrack with its latest proposition offers to take the monkey of their back. Need an â€?excuse‘? Blame Fastrack. Move on."

The TVCs use a high energy track by an American alternative rock band, Cake – Short Skirt/Long Jacket. "The track lends the TVC a high energy vibe and the lyrics help establish the image of the Fastrack girl," Das said.

Blame Fastrack is being amplified on the digital media as well. "Social media is the best way to connect and interact with the youth. An extensive twitter and Facebook plan is being put in place to make Blame Fastrack a part of youth pop-culture," Bhasin said.
