After an exciting year of aggressive and highly engaging marketing campaigns for its new generation products like Zest, Bolt and GenX Nano, Tata Motors is all set to make huge strides in marketing its new product line-up, inspired by its Horizonext strategy. The Company has signed-up the football player star, 4 consecutive times Best Player of the World, Lionel Messi, in a long-term association as it global brand ambassador to promote and endorse its passenger vehicles, globally. To start with, Tata Motors will first roll-out the association campaign, #madeofgreat, starring Lionel Messi.

 

This is the first time ever that the Passenger Vehicle Business will be undertaking an overall brand association campaign with a brand ambassador. The campaign is based on consumer insight and rides on a strong consumer motivation of ‘Seeking Excellence’ & ‘Self Belief’ which is epitomized by the confluence of two global brands- Tata Motors and Lionel Messi. The core idea of this campaign – Made of Great emerges from the inspiring thought of ‘What drives us from within is what makes us great’. The Company will also soon launch an exclusive, limited edition merchandising range of this association.

 

Announcing the association, Mayank Pareek, President, Passenger Vehicle Business Unit, said, “We are very excited to have Lionel Messi on board. He is talent galore with conviction & is an icon for today’s youth. Watching him play football is magical. His determination on the field is awe-inspiring. He is a winner who is trustworthy, reliable, pioneering, simple and driven by self-belief, which is the core idea of this campaign – ‘What drives us from within is what makes us great.’ Tata Motors is driven by design, technology and strives towards excellence. Through this powerful campaign we will communicate the values & ethos of the passenger vehicle business. As we look to expand our footprint across the globe, Messi’s unique ability to appeal globally, transcending geographies, makes him ideal person to represent our brand, internationally. This is the first campaign in the series and many more will unfold as we move on in this long-term association. We hope our customers like this new campaign and we look forward to their continued support.”

 

This campaign has been conceptualized by Tata Motors and Soho Square Advertising & Marketing Communications. The creative agency team lead by Kunal Jeswani, Anuraag Khandelwal and Satish deSa has spent over five months on the making of this campaign. It has been directed by Daniel Ben Mayor and filmed by team of international experts in Barcelona. Tata Motors has used the best graphic expert, Ambassador to bring alive the visual experience. Wizcraft is bringing this campaign alive on-ground, while DigitasLBi and SMG Convonix are seeding it across the digital platform, with Lodestar UM spearheading the media strategy.
