Now brands piggyback elections

MUMBAI: Move over political parties, election fever has gripped brands as well! As if political outfits telling people how they’ve changed their lives for the better wasn’t enough, we now have brands doing the honors. And while they may be performing a good deed in urging viewers to step out and cast their vote, not all brands that are piggybacking the polls seem to have got it right. Here’s taking a look at the election-based ads doing the rounds of television currently…

 

Fevicol uses crazy chairs as a symbol

 

Known for its clever, tongue-in-cheek advertisements, Fevicol’s latest too does not disappoint. A chai-wallah enters the shop of a carpenter who is making the next prime minister’s chair. He points out to three variations – one with BJP’s lotus, another with Congress’s hand, and a group of chairs joined unevenly symbolic of the Third Front. The advert is a pun intended on the politicos vying for power.

Hero Hf Deluxe appeals to vote the one with merit

 

Many a times, people vote for candidates/political parties who belong to the same region/community/caste/religion. The latest Hero advert advocates voting for people based on talent/merit instead of these mores.

Tata Tea Jaago Re strikes a strong message for women voters

Sunfeast shouts a subtle slogan

 

In keeping with the nature of the brand, Sunfeast’s latest advert is a fun take on political parties and elections. It features children as leaders and voters who go on to form the ‘Yippee’ party.

RR Kabel poses a straight question

 

Coming from a hardware brand, the advert comes straight to the point and tells voters to “choose wisely”. However, it does hit the right chord with a strong line of communication.

Idea warns politicians ‘no ullu banoing’

 

A typically smart-alecky advert coming from Idea, which is in sync with the brand’s punch-line, ‘no ullu banaoing’ even as it sends out a message to politicos not to fool the junta.

Subhash sarees salutes women voters

 

How does a clothes brand connect with elections? Subhash Sarees does it by saying that the ‘kaala teeka’ is the best form of adornment for any woman apart from the kaajal, bindi and so on.
