Brief

Leverage Moj to raise awareness about the new fantasy gaming platform PlayerzPot amongst GenZ and millennials. 

Creative Idea 

The Moj community is spending 34 minutes on an average day on the platform. The young community loves participating in popular trends and is attuned to the latest moments shaping popular culture through short videos. 

Moj wanted to engage its community in a fun cricket-related activity that could generate massive awareness for PlayerzPot, its tagline ‘Khela Kya?’ and the brand music. 

Moj designed a lens-based hashtag challenge where users got a chance to show off their posing skills by copying the cricket shot poses shown on screen and experience being a part of the game. The users had the liberty to unleash their creativity and pick up anything at their disposal like belans, jhaadus, stump, stick that resembles a bat to copy the given pose. The campaign was spearheaded by top Moj influencers. 

Execution 

A lens-based hashtag challenge #PlayerzPotChallenge was launched on Moj. 

A campaign banner was created on Moj for users to identify and participate in the campaign. The banner directed users to the hashtag challenge page that gave out detailed instructions about the campaign. The challenge was also made part of the explore section of the platform.

To participate, the Moj creator community had to replicate 5 cricket shot poses shown on screen and score maximum runs out of each pose.

Each pose based on its difficulty would fetch the creator points in the form of runs (for eg. 2 runs for the first pose, 4 runs for the 2nd & 3rd pose & 6 runs for the 4th & 5th pose ) and it will call out a ‘0’ if it’s not posed correctly.

The aim was to score maximum runs by the end of 5 poses to be eligible for gratification at the end of the campaign.

The participants stood a chance to win rewards worth Rs.5 Lakhs including OnePlus 4K Led Smart TV (55 inches), iPhone 12, GoPro, Samsung Smartphones, Amaze Fit Smart Watches, and many more exciting products.
