Pond’s Cold Cream is reaching out to the youth of today through its latest ad film. The ‘Jhappi Van’ social experiment conducted by Ponds is to gently nudge young people to go over and hug those they love.


On the occasion of International Hugs Day celebrated every year on the January 21, these films, born out of an experiment, are a warm way of reminding people that nothing really compares to the warmth and love in a real hug.


Said Zenobia Pithawalla, Senior Executive Creative Director, Ogilvy Mumbai: “Pond’s ki jhappi’ embodies the warmth, love and care that Pond’s Cold Cream gives to your skin. We decided what better way to build brand love, than by spreading the joy of a real hug. So, we came up with the Pond’s Jhappi van. This ‘hugs’ van gave you the opportunity of returning the love and care you got from those who showered you with theirs. Bringing alive all the attributes and emotions that Pond’s Cold Cream stands for.”


Added Prabha Narasimhan, Vice President, Skincare and Colours, Hindustan Unilever Ltd: “With the launch of #PondsKiJhappi in 2017, we were looking at ways to take it forward and build on the same thought. Interesting consumer insights helped us understand that it’s relationships even beyond the mother-daughter bond (which is what we’ve shown in our TVC) that hold value when it comes to ‘care’ – which is what led to the idea of the ‘Pond’s Jhappi Van’. Our new set of digital films talk about different relationship dynamics and how a ‘jhappi’ is a great way to show that you love and care.”
