The Koo App has launched a Holi anthem #HarRangKiHoli. From capturing glimpses of Uttar Pradesh’s ‘lathmar Holi’ which is played with colours and sticks, to highlighting Punjab’s ‘hola mohalla’ which is an amalgamation of folk dance and martial arts, further panning down to Goa’s vibrant ‘shigmo’ where locals welcome the spring, to the ‘dol jatra’ in West Bengal which includes a grand procession of Lord Krishna – the anthem brings into focus the message ‘many cultures, one emotion’.
Surf excel – ‘Jo rang bachpan lautaye, woh rang achhe hain’
Surf excel has launched a Holi campaign reinforcing its ‘Daag Achhe Hain’ brand proposition. The new campaign shows a heart-warming gesture by a little girl to include her aunt in the buoyant celebration amongst children. The message ‘Jo rang bachpan lautaye, woh rang achhe hain’ makes us examine the boundaries that keep us away from finding the joy of keeping our childhood alive.
