For a nation which has always purchased its groceries from the local kirana store, shopping for them online can be a pretty challenging concept to grasp. With #BahutAasaanHai, we ingrained the thought that shopping for groceries on PepperTap is actually Bahut Aasaan.
THE WORLD’S FIRST FAUX SKIP BUTTON – a truly groundbreaking digital innovation flagged off the campaign. On YouTube, a dummy Skip Ad button was placed below the PepperTap ad. The idea was – something that we think is very easy – skipping ads – is actually Bahut Mushkil (very difficult).
Users, when they tried to click on the Skip Ad button were obviously not able to skip the commercial. After five seconds the ‘Skip Ad’ button actually became active with the message Bahut Aasaan Hai.
With this campaign, Grapes successfully established the thought that nothing in this world is as easy as it looks, but shopping on PepperTap is really Bahut Aasaan Hai. The campaign received rave reviews from the advertising fraternity and instantly clicked with the target audience.
