‘Are you a Great Dad?’, quizzes SBI Life through new campaign

SBI Life Insurance has launched its new brand campaign by O&M Advertising that questions the responsible parent in all of us, by asking the pertinent question, ‘Are you a Great Dad?’ The TVC takes one through the journey of an army man who is questioning himself – has he truly been a good father to his child?


The film opens on the army man back from duty waiting longingly outside his child’s school to receive him. The son on seeing his father rushes into his arms and they exchange a big warm hug. The film continues with the father and son enjoying playful moments together, before the mother interrupts to get the child ready for school. It is followed by the child polishing his shoes, imitating his father’s every action. The film finally ends on the child about to fall asleep on the sofa while reading a story book and the father coming in just in time to cushion his fall. Throughout the film we hear the voice of the army man wondering if he has been a great dad.


Braj Kishore, Head – Brand and Corporate Communication, SBI Life Insurance said: “The need of the hour is to get consumers to buy Insurance for the right reason which is Protection. Being market leaders we felt it was important to make people realize that it is not only what they do when they are around that makes them a responsible and great parent but even after they are gone. Buying Life insurance can secure the future of their loved ones and ensure that the family is well looked after. Our new campaign sets out to remind people of just that.”


Abhik Santara, Senior Vice President, O&M Advertising – Mumbai said: “A lot of insurance brands use fear psychosis to sell their product. We felt it was necessary to communicate the importance of being insured but in a refreshing, relevant and endearing manner. The thoughts running through the mind of the army man are thoughts that every father can relate to. We wanted young fathers to introspect if they were doing enough for the well-being of their family, especially when they are gone.”
