- After taking a dig at CRED, magicpin is back with another spoof.
- This time, it seems to be targetting Flipkart.
magicpin, an affiliate marketing platform, went viral earlier this year for
spoofing CRED's popular advertisement
with Jim Sarbh. Now, to communicate the benefits of shopping locally, it has launched another hilarious ad. This time, it seems to be targetting Flipkart and its 'kidults.'
Taking a dig at Flipkart and online shopping platforms, magicpin's ad says that savings is 'no child's play' and highlights the merits of choosing your neighbourhood retail store over online channels for a better shopping experience and better savings.
The TVC features the inimitable Vijay Raaz
as the common man who talks straight. He brings to life the smart Indian who is sick of empty promises, tall claims, millions of paper points and online deliveries that don’t fit. He wonders about the need to go through this drama when a quick walk to the nearest shop will solve this dilemma in a jiffy.
It also promotes how magicpin offers the best saving deals across spend categories at offline stores in your proximity. So, you do not lose out on savings even when you shop offline.
As Karanjeet Kaur
, Head of Content at magicpin puts it, “How many times can you poke a finger in the eye of giants and get away with it? That’s the question we set out to answer with our latest TVC-led campaign. After the viral success of our ‘The Bread ad’, (which, frankly, took us by surprise), we knew we had to level up. So we adopted the route of provocation once again, but focused squarely on the joy of stepping out and shopping at local brand stores. And Vijay Raaz - with his image as an everyman with a bullshit-free approach to life - was the perfect choice to deliver the message… again.”
The TV campaign has already registered a humongous response with a total of over 54,85,459 views spread across YouTube, Twitter,Instagram Post, LinkedIn and Instagram Reel and is expected to cross 6 billion views soon.
