Ola promises fans a reliable ride to catch the match in its latest brand campaign, this World Cup

MUMBAI: Taking a fresh spin to the campaigns around the 2019 Cricket World Cup, Ola, India’s largest mobility platform and one of the world’s largest ride-hailing companies, unveiled its latest music video that embodies the enthusiasm of cricket lovers to watch the tournament promising them a reliable ride to their destination to catch the match.

Conceptualised and developed by Leo Burnett Orchard, the campaign emphasizes on what is most important to fans - the sheer pleasure of watching cricket at their preferred location. Be it at home or elsewhere, the experience transcends beyond the peripheral aspects such as anthems, offers or free merchandise. In a simple yet hard-hitting way, the video showcases what the brand does best and highlights what cricket buffs truly want this World Cup season – reaching their destination to watch the match.

The campaign film showcases how the craze for the world cup is to enjoy the match and not the plethora of offers and discounts that are given to the consumers. This is where Ola is not a part of the clutter. The message is conveyed in an effective manner by highlighting how the viewers are swamped with offers during the world cup but Ola is focussed on doing what they do best – helping people reach their destination with ease.

Speaking about the campaign, Anand Subramanian, Senior Director, Marketing and Communications at Ola said, “This video reiterates Ola’s versatility and its long term commitment to meet the dynamic needs of Indian consumers. An extension of the brand’s promise, the campaign highlights how easily and seamlessly Ola gets you to your preferred destination.”  He further added, “With the World Cup being one of the most watched cricket tournaments in the country, this campaign is bound to strike a chord with cricket buffs, ensuring they’re able to get to where they want to be to cheer for their favourite team.”

Amod Dani, ECD, Leo Burnett Orchard said, “We were looking for a unique and innovative way to capture the synergy between cricket and music. With this video, we not only showcased the emotion, zeal and excitement of cricket fans to watch the matches but also demonstrate how Ola is the ideal solution to fulfilling the commuting needs of Indians. This was a great opportunity for us and are pleased to have created this campaign with Ola.”
