eBay India launches new campaign – #ThingsDon’tJudge

30 Sep,2016



eBay India announced its brand new TV campaign #ThingsDon’tJudge. The campaign aims to inspire consumers to shop online from over 10 crore products available on ebay.in. The TV campaign will go on air from 28th September 2016.


Conceptualised by BBDO India, the film shows different situation where people are seen breaking away from a certain prejudice that the society imposes. The means for them is a product they have purchased from eBay, which enables them to move away from the shackles of judgments and live as they would. A product is that one thing that doesn’t judge them, though people may.


Commenting on the launch, Shivani Suri, Director Marketing, eBay India said, “Online shopping is changing how we live. It’s ushering in the acceptance of new. It’s at the heart of our evolving culture that’s gradually helping us distance from the norms around gender, age, cast, creed, social status or preferences. eBay, with over 10 crore products is inspiring consumers to shop for their favorite item and live their passions, desires, choices, and beliefs without inhibitions. With this central theme we decided to launch this campaign to not just capture market share but drive conversational commerce.”


Said Josy Paul, Chairman, BBDO India on the film: “When we started work on eBay, we had questions: Will our idea provoke conversation? Will the context last longer than the immediacy of the content. Will it influence change? We could feel the energy in the room when this idea came up.  Something happened! The passionate team at eBay – along with BBDO team – are doing what we can to create a better world even as we create greater desirability for the 10 crore products that are available on eBay.”


Added Hemant Shringy, Executive Creative Director, BBDO India: “When we found out that ebay has over 10 crore products, we knew it had to speak not just like a category leader, but as a conversation and thought leader. And eBay team really encouraged us and helped us find that voice. After an amazingly explorative and collaborative process we arrived at the idea – Things Don’t Judge. With 10 crore things at the heart of the idea, it says that in a time when we are constantly judging and being judged, things have the incredible quality and power of not judging. In fact they become our allies in finding our own versions of perfect, something that ebay stands for. We hope this idea helps create change. We think we have managed to make a film that tells the brand story and really makes you think.”
