ITC Ltd.’s recently launched Sunfeast Caker urges consumers to not compromise while snacking with its ‘Paet Ko Do Kuch Great’ campaign
With distinct, new-to-market experiences in the packaged cakes segment, Sunfeast Caker endeavours to deliver the ultimate snacking experience
National, 7th December 2020: ITC Ltd.’s Sunfeast, which recently launched its new sub-brand, SunfeastCaker to expand its footprint in the cakes category, has launched its first pan-India TVC campaign‘Paet Ko Do Kuch Great’. The campaign communication strikes a chord with every consumer who seeks instant snacking options in moments of hunger and sees their inner cake lover or ‘Caker’ come alive. Led by the brand’s signature offering and first, in the category, Trinity, a triple choco layered product innovation, which delivers a refined sensorial experience like-never-before, SunfeastCaker urges consumers that when they experience the ‘GudGud’ sensation in the stomach they should satiate it with something truly great i.e.‘PaetKo Do Kuch Great’.
The TVC opens with a young couple seated in the living room as they are trying to spend some time together. Cut to the girl’s face with an uneasy expression coupled with a stomach grumbling sound effect, asks the guy for any snack to satisfy her untimely hunger pang. The guy, turning down her request to offer just any snack, extends a pack of SunfeastCaker ‘Trinity’ against the background of a peppy jingle that suggests ‘PaetKo Do Kuch Great’. The fleeting happy moment for the couple is taken by surprise with the doorbell ring. The boy expecting his father back home hides his girlfriend while leaving the pack ofSunfeastCaker Trinity on the couch.
The father soon finds the unexpected guest hidden behind the curtain, thanks to her hunger pang alarm sound. The shock to see the girl is quickly replaced with a smile when the girl innocently snatches SunfeastCaker Trinity from his hand to satiate her hunger pangs. One indulgent bite cuts into the product shot which shows the triple-layered cake, choco-enrobed at the bottom with choco crème as the middle filling and topped with a choco drizzle. The unexpected hunger call from the father’s stomach eventually leads to a moment of laughter among the three.
Commenting on the TVC launch, Mr. Ali Harris Shere, Chief Operating Officer, Biscuits & Cakes Cluster, Foods Division, ITC Limited said, “Sunfeastas a brand has developed a reputation of delivering delicious snacking options over the years. Our new range of offerings under SunfeastCakeraspires to give a much-needed enrichment to the packaged cakes segment and deliver experiences as good as freshly baked cakes. With this new campaign we aim to further grow the cakes category by highlighting how our products satisfy all three vectors of hunger.e., offer satiety, indulgence, and convenience, whilst establishingSunfeastCaker as a truly great snacking option. We look forward to being a part of the consumers snacking moments and help enliven our proposition – PaetKo Do Kuch Great, through their thoughtful choice”.
Further elaborating on the TVC launch, Romit Nair, Creative Head, FCB Ulka, said “When it comes to snacking, a cake beats everything. SunfeastCaker is made for all kind of cake lovers. It isn’t a good option, it’s a great option. That’s why we wrote ‘PaetKo Do Kuch Great.’ When your stomach rumbles and grumbles for something to eat why give it any snack, give it a great one.
The idea was to own that moment when your paet goes ‘gud-gud’ which is the moment that’s in-between mealtimes. We used the sound of the stomach going ‘gud-gud’ as the creative device clubbed with a fun track. The creative piece brings out the true love for cake. In a sticky situation, the girl isn’t worried about the consequences she’s just worried about giving her paet something great.”
The TVC was shot and developed by FCB Ulka. The film will be aired across popular GEC channels in Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam, Kannada, Bengali, Hindi, and Assamese. Subsequently, the TVC will also leverage the reach of digital through popular social media and relevant online media platforms.
