Looking at growth opportunity in using internet on phones, Vodafone is pushing for this aggressively. Data shows that a sizable proportion of internet enabled phone owners do not use internet or have very low minutes of usage. To tackle this issue, Vodafone has come out with a campaign to drive usage and penetration of internet among Vodafone customers by simplifying usage experience and showing the fun possibilities of internet.


Created by O&M, the campaign proposition is of “internet is fun” to be substantiated by products that make internet fun to use on Vodafone network.


The brief given to the agency for the campaign is based on the core idea that internet and the mobile phone are ubiquitous in today’s world. The message communicated is to ensure that consumers get easier access to the internet and experience it in a simple and fun manner, on their Vodafone mobile phones. In short – The Internet is fun on Vodafone.


“This also meant creating services, products and offerings that substantiate our proposition, which you will see unveiled over the IPL. We will be staring the campaign with an execution on the Opera Mini browser available on Vodafone that facilitates faster internet browsing as an added caveat – this campaign was for the IPL. Hence the creative execution needed to be different and have scale to break clutter and standout during IPL 5,” stated an official communique from Vodafone.


“To deliver the ‘internet is fun on Vodafone’ promise we brought alive the Vodafone internet world in the form of huge, larger than life real games in a setting reminiscent of the Tele Matches. These games are set in a timeless space, with real people playing ridiculous games and generally getting together to have a fun time. And that provided the best metaphor for our proposition.”


“each offering explains how Vodafone makes the mobile internet experience more fun and was brought to life with its own unique and absolutely fun game played between two teams. To bring out authenticity in the execution, the TVCs are set in a small village nearPragueinCzechoslovakiaand all the props are real and have been constructed for the films. And because the drama is happening in Czech, and english commentator explains the proceedings to the audience,” stated the communique.


This is an 8 week long campaign. The campaign started with 3 teaser films on April 4 followed by the first TVC which aired on April 8. This is part of the 8 TVC’s on different products from Vodafone that make the internet experience on Vodafone fun. The campaign will be supported with a high decibel 360 media plan using TV, Radio, Print, Outdoor, on Ground and a digital and online plan.
