Campaign conceptualized by Taproot Dentsu
Andhra Pradesh and Orissa first to get a burst of energy this summer
The campaign has been launched in the heartland of Andhra Pradesh and Orissa and comprises of film, print, and Out of Home (OOH). The light-on-the-pocket pricing of ₹10 across variants, has made it an affordable enhanced hydration beverage, perfectly suited for everyone working hard, outdoors or indoors.
Mr. Titus Upputuru, Creative Head, Taproot Dentsu said, “In an age, where we are constantly occupied with recharging the dying batteries of our phones, this film is a reminder that the battery of our bodies needs recharging too. And it is wonderful that we don’t have to look too far to recharge ourselves – we are all gifted with the power to recharge and reenergize ourselves. Just like Aquarius Glucocharge which gives us instant recharge.”
Mr. Anand Murty, Strategy Head, Taproot Dentsu said, “Rather than fall prey to stereotypical narratives of heroic action, the opportunity for Aquarius came from the consumers themselves – in the way they recognized their role in supporting one another, lending a hand in times of need, boosting one another and making sure no one needed to walk alone. It was this counter-narrative that helped us situate Aquarius as a brand that cares, supports and re-energizes – so we move forward. Together.”
