The Himalaya Drug Company has come up with a new TVC for it newly launched product- Himalaya Men Active Sport Facewash. This TVC is created through an exclusive association with the Royal Challengers Bangalore. Insights from the RCB players and consumers across the country were considered while creating this product that is geared to tackle skin care concerns of men who have an active lifestyle.


The TVC showcases players from the RCB team including Captain Virat Kohli playfully urging the audience to go out and have an active lifestyle. Commenting on the TVC, Ramarao Dhamija, General Manager- Marketing (Consumer Product Division), Himalaya Drug Company, said: “Himalaya Men Active Sport Face Wash is a breakthrough product based on consumer research which highlighted that men who play sports or lead an active lifestyle prefer a product that can address skin issues caused from profuse sweating, excessive sun exposure and dirt. The idea of co-creating the face wash with team RCB is unique.”


Speaking more about the launch, Ashwani Gandhi, Category Manager, Himalaya Men, The Himalaya Drug Company said, “Having been associated with team RCB for over a year now, we took the opportunity to get first-hand insights from the players on their skin concerns and explored the idea of co-creating India’s first-ever facewash that caters to the skin care needs of men who live an active lifestyle. While creating the TVC we wanted to rope in players who could bring out the uniqueness of the product and at the same time inspire other men to get active with no reservations about their skin. Apart from the TVC, the campaign is supported by a 360 degree marketing plan including Print, outdoor digital and PR. We have also launched the Himalaya Men website here we’re sharing exciting content to further engage consumers.”


Speaking more about the TVC, Prateek Srivastava, Creative Director, Chapter Five, said: “When we received the brief, we were quite excited as the concept of a product co-created with Team RCB itself is very unique, something that no other brand has done before. So, even for the TVC, we wanted to show something that people have never seen before. That’s how we stumbled upon the idea of getting the cricketers to play a different sport. By showing them play Volleyball, we’ve been able to bring a fresh visual imagery into the film which we hope viewers will enjoy watching.”
