Made by LK Saatchi & Saatchi the inspirational piece reflects real life stories to express how we should all take some time off to unwind
Indian tourism sector is growing at 7- 8% annually but ironically the country is the fourth most vacation deprived nation in the world. Indians are still very reluctant and subject to procrastination when it comes to taking a Holiday.
To fillip travel and holiday bookings, Thomas Cook India has launched the ‘Grand India Holiday Sale’ (GIHS) campaign again this year.
While GIHS offers unmatched deals on vacation packages, the films encourage us to take a break from our all-important work lives, and that the world (read workplace) will not collapse if we really went on a holiday.
Created by Law & Kenneth Saatchi & Saatchi, the films are produced by Spotlight Films and directed by Amit Satyaveer Singh. The campaign will run primarily on digital – YouTube and Facebook supported with print and outdoor.
Speaking about the campaign, Mr. Abraham Alapatt, President & Group Head – Marketing, Service Quality, Financial Services & Innovation, and Thomas Cook India said, “The new films are a fun/quirky take on vacation deprived Indians and showcase our Thomas Cook Grand India Holiday Sale as the first step in encouraging people to think holidays with a slew of great offers/deals. The thinning of the divide between work and personal lives is an unfortunate reality today, which is why it’s important to just take-off once on a while and the good news is that we’ve begun to see more people doing this nowadays.”
Debarjyo Nandi, Sr. Vice President - Law & Kenneth Saatchi & Saatchi added, “Skipping or postponing holidays for work is a self-prophesied importance barometer. How many times have we thought or said something similar. Fact is we even believe it. We all see ourselves in these characters. That is what makes the films effective and entertaining.”
The films have struck an instant chord with the audience with around 6 million views in 2 week’s since launch.
