To make this Diwali special for all, Sony Liv took charge and asked people to share the joy by sending customized visual greetings to their loved ones.
Sony Liv wanted to spread happiness this festive season by connecting with the audience on one of the most serene fesstivals – Diwali.
The campaign commenced with a video highlighting the importance of family, especially during festive seasons.
Titled, Choti Khushi, the video showed a story of two brothers who reconciled after a fight, on the occasion of Diwali. It spoke volumes about how festivals can make people forget their issues and start over.

For follow up communications, #LivThisDiwali was coined. #LIVThisDiwali became an apt campaign name as it not only created a brand connect but conveyed the message of celebrating this festival with your family. An extension to the thought was to send greetings to wish their loved ones and celebrate it virtually as well. A microsite and a Facebook application was created which would help everyone send a personalized wish to their loved ones by send a wish on a microsite. The greeting could then be posted on their Facebook and Twitter profiles. The best personalized greeting stood a chance to win Samsung Smartphones.
