MUMBAI: Honda Motorcycle and Scooter has introduced a 360 degree ad campaign for the iconic Activa 5G. Developed by Dentsu One, a Dentsu Aegis Network Company, the TVC is now on air across all popular channels.

Honda’s ‘Love is Growing’ TVC starts with an establishment of a college campus. It is here that Taapsee enters riding the new Activa 5G with her father (Boman Irani) as her pillion. The father and daughter duo (Boman Irani and Taapsee Pannu) ride the new Activa 5G to college.

A group of four youths stops to notice the scene. The first says “Ye to wahi hai yaar” to which the second replies “lagti to bilkul alag hai yaar” to which the third friend adds “Bright like sunshine”. One of the friends has all eyes for the girl and says “Tu 5G dekh, mujhe to apna future dikh raha hai.” The strict professor father (Boman) hearing this gets annoyed and scolds the boy to come inside the building. A voiceover in the background introduces the scooter as ‘Agaya hai naya Activa 5G. Curiosity badegi, batein badhengi, aur pyaar toh badhega hi.’

“As the number one selling two-wheeler of India, Activa is no longer just a mobility solution but a cherished part of life for more than 18 million Indian families and youth. Activa has transformed to meet the evolving needs of every generation over the years. The new fifth generation Activa 5G, while staying true to its legacy of trust, innovation, quality, reliability and convenience; looks and rides completely different giving young India all the more reason to fall in love with it. The new ‘Love is Growing’ campaign celebrates that not only is the Love for Activa is growing but love is growing in real life too,” says Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India senior vice president of sales and marketing Yadvinder Singh Guleria.

“Activa is a household name in India. It has seen many generations. As we were briefed about the 5th generation model of this very popular brand, we thought let’s showcase how this love is growing. The film is a little chapter from this love story, which occurs in a university, between one of the students and the professor’s daughter. It was great working with Boman Irani. Taapsee adds a new flavour to the brand. We hope the film builds on the love that the brand already enjoys across the nation,” adds Dentsu One national creative director Titus Upputuru.

Dentsu One senior vice president of account management Abhinav Kaushik mentions, “Activa has become an inseparable part of Indian families since its launch 17 years back. So many things have changed during this time but the love and affection for Activa has only grown and multiplied over the years. With this growing love across multiple generations, it was the right time to launch Activa 5G with a quirky campaign where the brand becomes the harbinger or catalyst to get two people to fall in love with each other.”
