JWT India has launched a new campaign with cricketer Virat Kohli as brand ambassador for Nestle Munch 4X4.

 

“The foundation of the campaign is the idea that the crunch of Nestle Munch 4×4 is so exciting that it makes everything else exciting as well. After some vigorous head-banging we hit upon the idea of having Virat Kohli playing a very unexciting look-alike of his, named Balakrishnan Vaali. In the commercial, Vaali eventually turns out to become the unlikely hero in the end, all thanks to the crunch of the Nestle Munch 4X4,” said Bobby Pawar, Chief Creative Officer JWT on the new campaign.

 

The launch of the new Munch campaign in leading dailies coincided with the day Virat Kohli scored a century in the first cricket test match of the India- Australia series. The roll-out was very well supported by innovative activity on digital media.

 

Nitin Pradhan, Executive Creative Director, JWT commented, “Our main challenge was to use the celebrity in a way that was never done before yet had mass appeal. We were clear that it’ll be fun to bring out Nestle Munch 4×4’s proposition of the crunchiest excitement ever in a way that’s unique and innovative. The idea of a celebrity playing his own look-alike was fresh for anyone to discover. And Virat did full justice to the part. Without speaking a word in the story, he did everything to make Balakrishnan Vaali look convincingly real, innocent and an enjoyable character.”
