Unilever Nepal has been, for over 25 years, one of the largest FMCG manufacturers in Nepal.
Surf Excel, as a brand, has gained its reputation over the years. On the digital front, the brand has been creating a connect with its audience. And hence, improving its presence in digital media.
Tihaar (Diwali) is one of the important festivals across Nepal. As a consumer brand, Surf Excel wanted to create communication based on the festive season, linking it to its brand promise – Dirt is Good. The communication was done through an emotionally charged film, which brought alive the brand promise.
Surf Excel’s main objective was to reinforce the brand thought of ‘Dirt is Good’ through the lens of Tihaar.
The objective was to develop an idea for Tihaar oriented campaign and initialize the Facebook page. The main focus of the digital campaign was to create awareness and increase engagement of the target group.
The main idea for this campaign was “Dirt is Good” (Daag Ramro Chhaa) but through the lens of Nepali life and audience.
The challenge was to emotionally connect with the audience through the platform of Tihaar, and create awareness for the brand on social/digital media.
An emotional film was conceptualized that captured the essence of Tihaar, keeping in mind the brand promise. The film showed the loving bond between brother and sister, and how “daag” played a positive role in strengthening the bond between the siblings.
A survey was done post-the-release of the film. And every time they were asked about Surf Excel, the response was related to the ad- “That BhaiTika ad”. The brand became the perfect metaphor for sibling bonding during the festive season.
