MS Dhoni becomes a drama king in Snickers' latest ad

MUMBAI: Mars Wrigley Confectionery, the company behind Snickers bars, known for its quirky, tongue-in-cheek personality has found a partner in the charming and dynamic cricket icon, MS Dhoni. He is the new brand ambassador.

Since its launch in India, the filled chocolate bar has established itself as a solution to hunger cravings and has developed a strong base of loyal consumers. As the cricketer gets set to join the Snickers family, fans will get a chance to see a side of him that has so far remained undiscovered, that of a Drama King.

Conceptualised by creative agency RK SWAMY BBDO, the TVC captures a humorous locker room conversation between captain cool and his team. MS Dhoni is seen in a completely new avatar, dressed as a warrior. Channeling his inner king, in full gusto, he calls upon his teammates to take a pledge to beat the opposing team. This uncharacteristic tirade is finally brought to an end when one of the players reasons that hunger makes even captain cool lose his cool and offers him a bar of Snickers to satiate his hunger.

The new TVC gives a new spin to MS Dhoni’s otherwise calm personality and successfully reiterates that ‘hunger ache achhon ko badal deta’ and India’s favorite cricketer is no exception!

Talking about the association, Mars Wrigley Confectionery marketing director Yogesh Tewari says, “We are honoured to have MS Dhoni join the Snickers family and with this association, we are beginning the next chapter of our journey in India and strengthening our relevance amongst Indian consumers.”

Cricketer MS Dhoni adds, “I am extremely excited to be associated with the brand. It breaks away from the monotony and resonates with the quirk in everybody. It has the capability to curate emotions that redefine one’s personality the best. It has always been one of my favourites not only because of its delicious taste, but also because it is a perfect solution to hunger pangs.”

The campaign that went live on 5 March on television, will be supported by an extensive 360-degree marketing approach including digital, in-store and OOH.
