~Launches its new TVC ‘Live Fearless’ with Fearless Ranvijay Singh~
the new TVC is about the difference and a chase between a group of guys and a single fearless guy. It’s about the decisions that this single protagonist featuring Ranvijay takes with confidence in his stride.
The new TVC highlights the way Xenoh deodrant adds to one’s personality. The basic message is to convey that if you are fearless, you get things your way. At the same time, through this commercial the new Xenoh variant – Night Out is introduced.
Speaking on the idea and the concept behind the commercial, Sandeep Bomble, Founder & Creative Director, Palasa Creative Place commented, “The thought was to portray that the attitude
of the man lies in his confidence to face the world. Also we had debates on things that impress women and we came to a conclusion that no doubt good looks, roses, letters, etc are known to impress them but today women seek beyond these things. They look up to men who are fearless and confident. Thus, Palasa’s idea of ‘Live Fearless’ perfectly blends with the thought, which gives man a larger than life attitude. Hence we personified the product to something that brings forth the fearless instinct of the man that allows him to go ahead and get what he desires.”
With increasing competition in the deodrant segment, the communication breaks free from the clutter of today Indian men becoming extremely conscientious about their personal grooming and hygiene levels. The brief was simply to retain the oomph factor but have something more as an idea that could be communicated to the audience and not simply go the clichéd way of showing the girl being attracted to man with just the whiff of the fragrance. Men love sports and adventure; however this passion also brings along with it the unnecessary baggage of body odour.
