Myntra's new TVC goes viral

MUMBAI: Retail e-commerce giant Myntra’s outdoor apparel brand The Roadster Life Co’s new TV commercial hit the airwaves recently after it went viral on social media over the last week. 

This film has been conceptualised, produced and shot by Brave New World Communications - a Bangalore based integrated communications agency, which had been tasked with carving out a niche for The Roadster Life Co.

The film was released on Facebook & YouTube on 27 January and has been received very positively so far. At the time of filing this story, the video was viewed more than 15 million times and shared more than 8100 times. The film was released on TV on 5 February.

The goal was to appeal to a younger audience who value experiences and are tired of the usual tourist spots. The agency’s strategic approach was single-minded: to own roads as a brand platform by positioning them as the most diverse of destinations. The claim is subtly supported by the product's deep-design interpretation of archetypal roads, from driveable coastlines and broken paths to desert trails and forest paths.

“The challenge was to make Roadster relevant in an increasingly crowded category,” said Brave New World CEO and CCO Joono Simon. “Roadster is a young brand and social media has a powerful part to play – it was important for the commercial to establish a context for sustainable two-way conversation. Creating a sense of scale was also vital – because the backdrop of the great outdoors is our real invitation. Once you accept it, Roadster has an enabling role to play in your life.”

The film is a tip of the hat to those who follow the road to pursue unusual passions. A non-linear narrative stitches together three unique instances: a free spirit collecting his own brand of experiences along rocky coastlines, a ranger on a tiger census making her own trail through the forest, and an intrepid duo braving a desert storm to deliver relief supplies.

The underlying message is a simple one –the road is both journey and destination for those in search of unique experiences.  The recently released film is the first salvo of an integrated interactive campaign for the brand.
