Speaking about Tang’s creative campaign for the summer vacation, Mondelez India vice president- of marketing Nitin Saini said, “Summer, with its promise of freedom and fun with friends, turns into a period where children are always eager to experience moments of laughter and adventure with their friends. However, they might get separated from their buddies due to other travel plans during this crucial downtime. So, we saw an opportunity to bridge the gap and bring the perfect summer companion to life for children, which also serves as a great opportunity for them to bond with their parents during the break. With a commitment to infuse fun and excitement, we are happy to introduce the new campaign ‘Summer Break Bestie’ for the young hearts yearning for a fun-filled summertime. A child’s imagination is endless, and we are excited to see the avatars these kids will create to enjoy their summer break.”

Bates India group creative directors Pashyn Sethna and Pranav Bhide added “Summer vacation means 24x7 fun. But it also means friends travelling away and boredom creeping in. So as a brand that champions kids’ break time, the challenge was to keep the fun going all summer. Tang's ‘Summer Break Bestie’ is an interactive new platform for kids and parents to come together and create their virtual BFF. Using their imagination, kids can design their own characters, going up to over 1,00,000 combinations! The idea brings alive summertime activities like playing, learning, dancing, reading and more, that kids can engage in throughout the summer. For the campaign, digital, social and influencer channels will spotlight this unique coming together of tech and kids’ imagination to defeat summertime boredom.”

Wavemaker India's chief client officer & office head, West, North & East Shekhar Banerjee also mentioned “With simple and easy-to-access tech, we are enabling kids to create memorable experiences when they are locked indoors during peak summers. The objective is to drive engagement through various media touchpoints and effectively strengthen Tang's association with summer.”
