Parle Wafers launches new campaign

MUMBAI: Everest Brand Solutions has conceptualized the latest campaign for Parle Wafers keeping in mind the objective of carrying forward the message ‘Parle‘s Wafers khaane kaa match jeetaane ka, aapka kya hai funda‘ to occasions beyond cricket and other aspects of its TG‘s life. The commercials are produced by Nirvana Films.

The main challenge was to reinforce the ‘Parle‘s Wafers khaane kaa funda‘ concept in the consumer‘s minds based on the proposition that when they consume Parle‘s wafers something good happens to them and hence it becomes their ‘funda‘ for consuming Parle‘s Wafers.

The TV campaign has two commercial simultaneously on air, both showing how the protagonists discover their superstition/lucky charm while eating Parle‘s Wafers. The first commercial revolves around social networking sites mainly Facebook. Keeping in mind the target audience of the product, Parle came up with the FB funda for their new TVC, with the belief that it leads to a favorable outcome each time you bite Parle‘s Wafers, so that youngsters can relate well with it.

The TVC shows a nerdy character surfing the net in the middle of the night. He picks up Parle‘s Wafers from the pack and receives a friend request from an attractive girl. On picking up another wafer he receives a similar friend request. The boy is amazed and sees a connection here as he realizes what is happening. He picks another wafer and the happiness continues…

The second TVC shows a young couple ‘hanging out‘ on their first date on a park bench. They look conscious and awkward. Just then, the boy eats a Parle‘s wafer and out of nowhere lightning strikes. The girl gets very scared and hugs the boy involuntarily. The couple is surprised and as the boy has another wafer the same thing happens all over again. The boy realizes the connection and mischievously smiles and has another bite.

The brand was initially called ‘Musst Chips‘ when it was first introduced in April‘08 in Maharashtra and was later extended nationally in a phased manner. In July‘10 the brand was re-launched as ‘Parle Wafers‘ bringing a younger appeal to it and building on the equity of Parle.
