Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s partnership continuing with Orient fans – from the PSPO days to the new i-Series range of fans powered by ECM technology.
Orient Electric Limited, part of the diversified $ 2.4 billion CK Birla Group, has launched a new TVC campaign featuring long-standing brand ambassador Dhoni to introduce its new i-Series range of fans powered by ECM technology.
Orient i-Series fans save 50% energy as compared to ordinary fans leading to significant reduction in electricity bills for consumers.
The commercial video features Dhoni at Orient Electric’s R&D lab where a research engineer is trying to explain the features of the new i-Series fan using a lot of technical jargons. A disinterested Dhoni starts exploring other gadgets in the room and gets his jacket stuck in one of the wind tunnels. What catches Dhoni’s attention is when the research engineer says that these fans have “EC inverter technology”. A totally amazed Dhoni confirms whether it is the same EC technology which is present in latest refrigerators and ACs. The engineer confirms the same and pulls out his smartphone to show that the fan is IoT enabled as well, saves 50% energy and works silently and efficiently event at low voltages.
Talking about the newly launched TVC, Anshuman Chakravarty, Head Brand and Corporate Communication, Orient Electric Limited said, “As a trusted brand, we consider it our responsibility to provide products and solutions which are good for our consumers and also for the environment. Given the fact the fans contribute significantly to the home utility bills, we are proud to introduce i-Series inverter fans which save 50% energy as compared to ordinary fans, thus helping consumers and the nation to not only save money but reduce carbon footprint too. The new TV commercial brings out the characteristic features of our i-Series fans by means of a waggish dialogue between MS Dhoni and a research engineer. I am sure that this TV spot will capture the audience attention and create a lot of excitement about Orient i-Series fans.”
Mr. Sagar Mahabaleshwarkar, Chief Creative Officer, Contract Advertising said, “Orient Electric is known for introducing innovative features in their fans. They have launched many firsts like the silent fan. However, we have never tried explaining the tech that goes behind making these fans. The challenge was to communicate Orient’s new iSeries technology by showcasing the R&D capabilities of Orient, but in a manner that is easy to understand and entertaining at the same time. MS Dhoni, who has been the face of Orient for almost a decade adds his incomparable charisma and charm to the campaign.
Dhoni’s associate with the CK Birla Group company dates back to a decade and a half as the Orient Fans brand ambassador.
