Grey India unveils new campaign to propagate Swach Bharat initiative

To support Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Swach Bharat initiative, GREY group India, who was recently awarded to handle the creative duties of this mission has produced a new campaign as part of a larger campaign for the Swachh Bharat Mission.

 

There are many offenders who have no qualms about throwing garbage on the street, littering on the streets, urinating in public etc., i.e. not contributing towards the social responsibility of keeping the nation clean. The central idea of the campaign is to “Shame” those offenders who do so. GREY¹s campaign aims at shaming those offenders, as the protagonist in the TV campaign is cheered or rather jeered by the people who have observed the protagonist’s dastardly act. This is the first phase of the campaigning, demonstrated by a 60 second TV commercial, which will be aired in 10 languages across all major networks.

 

On the Swachh Bharat campaign, Samir Datar, VP & Branch Head, GREY Delhi says, “We are delighted to be part of Swachh Bharat initiative. We believe that the idea of shaming people who litter, is a compelling idea and can become a very effective behaviour change tool, once it gets traction in social media and ground activation.”

 

GREY group is now working on the second phase to add momentum to this communication. GREY group India’s National Creative Director and EVP, Malvika Mehra said, “There is a saying in Hindi ‘jab ghee seedhi ungli se na niklay, tab ungli tedhi karni padti hai’. Despite countless ‘Keep India Clean’ efforts/messages by the government, we still see a total lack of involvement from our brethren for the cause. The sarcasm in the film is an attempt to drive home the point harder by now literally ‘humiliating’ the offender, albeit nicely. Hope such efforts lead to a Swachh Bharat indeed.”
