Flying Machine has often used celebrities as brand ambassadors and the choice has been made keeping in mind the philosophy of ‘Who’s new? Who’s cool?’. Arjun Kapoor has been in the news lately for delivering a slew of hits against his name; also the fact that he is relatively new made him the perfect choice as the face of Flying Machine.

The idea behind the campaign was to use Arjun Kapoor as himself. The brief thus was to create a story that revolved around Arjun and his pair of Flying Machine denims. Alok Dubey, CEO, Arvind Brands, said, “In just a year, Arjun Kapoor has become a ‘blue ocean’ actor. In light of so much competition, he has established himself with brains, body and attitude. He connects brilliantly with Flying Machine which embodies itself in craftsmanship without trying too hard.”

The film begins in a hotel where Arjun Kapoor is staying. He has given his Flying Machine denims to the laundry and calls the housekeeping for the same. The rest of the film depicts how the hotel’s staff members react to Arjun’s request. A cat and mouse chase ensues between the attendants to deliver his denim. Rajesh Ramaswamy, ECD, Lowe Lintas, said, “The idea was to use Arjun interestingly. In a manner that also suits his image. Looking at Arjun, what makes him even cooler is that he’s completely unaware of his appeal. We thought using that side of his personality could be interesting.”

Arun Iyer, NCD, Lowe Lintas, added, “Arjun Kapoor embodies a lot of what Flying Machine believes in: being effortless and cool. The brand idea on Flying Machine is ‘the new cool.’ And Arjun Kapoor in no time has clearly become the new cool of Bollywood. The film demonstrates the fact that a simple act like calling for laundry can lead to an intense cat-fight when you are the new cool celebrity in town.”

 

The campaign is currently on air and will be released across other media over a period of time.
