MUMBAI: Reminding the young Indian spectacle wearer of the several embarrassing situations their spectacles have landed them in, Bausch and Lomb India announced the launch of its latest campaign, #BlameTheFrame, for its vision correction contact lenses - iconnect. These monthly disposable contact lenses have been specially designed for youth & first time users to suit their pocket as well as their lifestyle. The campaign is aimed at urging the young bespectacled Indian to ditch their frames and switch to iconnect contact lenses.

The narrative of the ads takes this fight with spectacles head on, while being humorous, cheeky, and fun to appeal to the youth, with the added appeal of youth icon Nargis Fakhri.

Announcing the roll-out of the digital campaign for iconnect, Bausch and Lomb India managing director Sanjay Bhutani said, “Bausch and Lomb, world over, is known for delivering quality and convenience to their consumers. We believe that we provide a great alternative to the conventional frames which are often the reasons for embarrassing and funny situations for the wearers. With the #BlameTheFrame campaign, we are reiterating this fact, albeit in a lighter vein. We are extremely thrilled with the treatment we have given to this campaign and we are confident that we would be able to strike a chord with our audience. We are extremely happy to have Nargis Fakhri be a part of this campaign.”

FCB Ulka national creative director Surjo Dutta said, “It’s been a great experience as always producing some exciting work for Bausch & Lomb this year. The brief was very clear: take the spectacles category head on. And being the leader in the contact lenses category, we decided to do that in a lighthearted manner. We asked ourselves, ‘What if a once-in-a-lifetime moment passed you by unnoticed and your spectacles were to blame for it?’ ‘Blame The Frame’ is the campaign that was born out of that question. And it resonates very well with people who wear spectacles because they’ve all been in one messed up situation or another because of them. This is just the first film and we hope to make more soon."

 The new campaign will see a digital release and will be seen across all digital platforms.
