VIP ropes Hrithik Roshan as the brand ambassador

VIP-Hrithik1V.I.P Industries launched a new campaign “When you are very important” for their home-grown brand VIP. The campaign features Bollywood actor Hrithik Roshan as their Brand Ambassador illustrating the transformation of India’s pioneering luggage brand, creating a niche positioning for itself.
Commenting on the new campaign Radhika Piramal, Managing Director, V.I.P Industries says, “VIP is a brand with which we pioneered in the luggage industry. Almost 4 decades old; brand VIP continues to reign as one of the most preferred luggage companions. Through this campaign we offer our consumers another reason to continue to associate with brand VIP, as the campaign tag line says “When you are very important”.  We are extremely delighted to associate with Hrithik Roshan; there couldn’t have been anyone else who could match the classic legacy of our brand.”
Leaving no stone unturned the campaign is created by a team of creative minds such as Thomas Krygier – Director of Oscar winning commercials, Olivier Schneider – Stunt Director for classics such as James Bond 24: SPECTRE, Fast & Furious 6 and conceptualised by the team of Whyness Worldwide.
Expressing his thoughts on the campaign Ravi Deshpande, Founder and Chairman, Whyness Worldwide says, “VIP as a brand has a unique charm just like the Brand Ambassador-Hrithik Roshan. Our attempt was to ensure that both the personalities are stitched together displaying the features of the product, thus offering the audience an action packed commercial that we hope stands out from the rest.”
Filmed in Prague, one of the largest cities in Europe, the campaign showcases the superstar trying to escape a gang of thugs who want to steal a precious jewel which he carries in a VIP strolley. Against a beautiful backdrop depicting the magnificent cultural sights; the scene is shot on the streets where Hrithik is seen fighting the gang. Aesthetically choreographed the fight sequence shows Hrithik using the strolley to defend himself and at the same time demonstrating the durability and toughness of the bag.
Detailing the marketing strategy for the brand Sudip Ghose, Vice President-Marketing, V.I.P Industries says, “This campaign is an amalgamation of two very important personalities i.e. VIP and Hrithik Roshan. With “When you are very important” campaign we want to entice the audience with the features of the new collection that Hrithik displays in the commercial. Adopting a different approach; apart from a 45 second television commercial viewers on the digital platform will get to watch a 2.45 minute film which will be exclusive to social media and will go live sometime soon.”
Going live on 2nd April the campaign features the tough and scratch resistant artic blue Tube trolley. Designed in attractive colours offering toughness and scratch resistance the collection is definitely a must have. Enhancing its reach the campaign will be promoted across all platforms such as TV, social media and OOH.
