Amitabh Bachchan turns uber cool grandpa for Lloyd smart LED TV

MUMBAI: After the tremendous success of the AC campaign this year, Lloyd, a part of Havells India Ltd has launched a new TV commercial for LED TVs featuring Amitabh Bachchan as the uber-cool grandpa. 

Conceptualised by RK Swamy BBDO, the new ad campaign primarily aims to highlight the new-age features of Lloyd LED TV. 

The role of the TV has certainly undergone a significant change in the Indian households as it’s not only restricted to family members squabbling over their choice of channel or show or about the entire family sitting around the TV to catch the new episode. Through this new ad campaign, the company aims at connecting with the new-age internet generation, who may not be watching TV in a conventional way, but spend a lot of time on entertainment by consuming internet content, which they can now access through their Lloyd smart LED TV.

The TVC tells the story of a cool grandpa and his grandson Chintu. The film opens with Chintu entering the house with his sweet, bubbly girlfriend played by Aneri Vajani, a popular face on the television. As the friendly Dadu introduces himself to the new guest, the girl is enamoured by this tech-savvy, cool grandpa who can do amazing things like screen mirroring pics from his phone on the TV, sending an email using the Qwerty TV remote, and even accessing social media through his Lloyd LED smart TV.

The light-hearted film, where Bachchan demonstrates all the cool features of his Lloyd TV with evident pride, ends with hitting off with the girl on a friendly note of becoming her Facebook friend, and in the process, side-lining his grandson.

Havells India vice president of marketing Amit Tiwari says, “The consumer behaviour, especially of the younger generation, is constantly evolving and becoming an extension of the smartphone. We believe that our smart TVs act as an enabler in bringing family and friends closer and drive bonding by tapping into the evolution of technology in television viewing.”

The ad is being aired across Hindi and English news channels, English and Hindi movie channels, and infotainment channels. Also, it will be aired in around 500 leading cinema halls across India during the screening of blockbuster movies Race 3 and Sanju.
