Fevicol has rolled out a new TV commercial that reflects the current prevailing election environment in the country. Continuing its strategy to develop communication based on situations, the new TVC rides on the ongoing election bandwagon subtly imbibing brand messaging in the script.


In the new TVC developed by O&M, the communication is more than just functional, and has kept in line with brand proposition of strong bonding. Aptly titled ‘Crazy Chairs’ the TVC brings a unique and humorous take on the current election scenario with the help of carpenters and contractors. This TVC builds on earlier ads where the Fevicol brand used day to day situations in a funny way to communicate.

Anil Jayaraj, Chief Marketing Officer, Pidilite Industries said, “Most of our advertising bases the core brand proposition of “strong bonds” in an extremely creative and yet simple way. Our previous TVCs on Fevicol have aimed at exploring situations where this proposition can be communicated in a memorable and consistent way. In this TVC, we have experimented with the elections. We believe this new communication takes our brand ahead, and stands out.”

Commenting on the concept, Piyush Pandey Executive Chairperson and Creative Director, Ogilvy & Mather- South Asia said, “Keeping in mind the tone and manner that Fevicol has had for the last 21 years, Fevicol Crazy Chairs TVC captures the atmosphere created by the general assembly elections in the country. It borrows the excitement and interest of a common man and thereby creating a sync with the audience.”


The TV campaign will be an integrated campaign including outdoors and digital. In addition Pidilite is also executing a number of demand generation initiatives for Fevicol to support this campaign. The ad will be aired across key markets including entire Hindi speaking belt for a month period starting April 16, 2014.
