Celebrate ‘Deal-Wali Diwali’ with CouponDunia


MUMBAI: Coupon code website CouponDunia has launched a series of campaigns this festival season. Apart from offering 30 exclusive deals on their website, they recently released two videos for their Diwali campaign; one called ‘Deal-Wali Diwali’ and another music video in association with East India Company (EIC).

With their new Diwali campaign - ‘Deal-Wali Diwali’, they are trying to capture consumer’s mindset on giving or even receiving gifts.  Within four days of its launch, the video received over 1 lakh views.

Talking about the ‘Deal Wali Diwali’ video, CouponDunia Founder and CEO Sameer Parwani said, “CouponDunia’s core brand value lies in helping consumers save money. Festivals and special days provide us an opportunity to make our loved ones happy. It is all about spreading happiness. Now with the online retail industry offering some great deals and discounts, gifting has never been easier. Through this video we have tried to showcase what each one of us feels even while getting a gift from a dear one?”

While the first video deals with gifts and happy part of the festival, the other video addresses and voices the not so pleasant perspective of the common man on how festivals are being celebrated these days.

As the country gears up for the upcoming festivities, people are already dreading the impending traffic jams, surging noise pollution, filthy streets and leftovers of celebrations everywhere.

 “I think it is a common problem that all of us our facing today. We all enjoy celebrating festivals but there is a different side to it as well. We loved the way EIC has tried to incorporate the concept of celebration through this video and hence are happy to partner with them in spreading this simple message,” Parwani further added.

On associating with CouponDunia, EIC founder Kunal Rao said, “I’m glad to see corporates get involved in these matters. You could say they are performing corporate social responsibility through a sense of humour! We are glad CouponDunia sees the fun side of life and are very happy to be associated with them”.

The video, a parody of Miley Cyrus’ ‘Wrecking Ball’, is a light-hearted, good-spirited take on this problem includes many familiar faces like Suresh Menon, Ashwin Mushran, Gaurav Kapur, VJ Bani and Jose.

Titled ‘Wrecking God’, the video is shot entirely on iPhone 5S and mixes smart humour with a social message.
