Why climb the career ladder when you can fly! - 'Corporate Chamcha' Goes Viral in a Big Way…
Campaign: 'Corporate Chamcha' Video Campaign
Client : Red Bull India Pvt. Ltd Duration: 2 week
Energy drink Red Bull has launched a campaign to appeal to the ambitious streak of people who want to climb the corporate ladder through performance. It poses Red Bull as a drink that helps them to reach this goal, as the active ingredients in it enable one to give peak performance and thus rise to the top. The essence of the entire campaign is captured in the line: 'Why climb the career ladder when you can fly!’
The campaign, which has a strong focus on the digital medium, is a tongue-in-cheek take on the Indian corporate culture, where a corporate 'chamcha' is ready to do anything to climb the career ladder. As part of the campaign, Red Bull has launched a viral video on YouTube. Titled 'Corporate Chamcha', the film shows how ridiculous it is to be a 'chamcha' and presents an alternate way to reach the top.
The insight of the idea is that drinking Red Bull keeps one sharp and enhances performance, so one need not be a 'chamcha' to be professionally successful.
