Mirum India launches funny campaign for Axis MF tickles

Axis Mutual Fund has launched its ELSS-specific ad campaign titled #TaxFever.

Said Naila Patel, Executive Creative Director, Mirum India, on the thought process behind the campaign: “Several reasons contributed to the choice of this parody angle. We wanted to push the envelope with this campaign and highlight the waiting game of tax savings by giving it a name. That’s where #TaxFever came from. Our audience for the campaign – individuals between the ages of 25 and 43 – are averse to preachy content. They respond well to communication that tickles their funny bone, is relatable, and most importantly, has a human element to it. And while tax and investing in ELSS remain the mundane reality of our lives, we needed comic relief to save the day. So, we went the parody way – why not leverage existing figures who are easily recognisable, have their individual quirks and well-known catchphrases? The core message of our campaign, #TaxFever Se Bacho, ELSS Mein Invest Karo, has a face – two faces, rather – that drives home the message in their individual, unique ways.”


Added Boniface Noronha, Head – Marketing & Digital at Axis Mutual Fund: “We wanted to steer clear of drab, run-of-the-mill messaging around tax. Instead of saying ‘here’s a tax saving instrument to invest in’, we wanted to say ‘why don’t you start investing early every year so you don’t have to worry about last-minute tax-saving investments?’ And we wanted to do this in a fun and relatable way, which the films are able to do very well.”
