#Brandspeak: On adverts that scream quietly

So I have been seeing recent Cadbury Bournvita ad-Bournvita Race.I watched it over and over again before it clicked that there was some thing different about it. Here’s how it goes: A mother is seen continuously  doing running exercises with her kid and the kid is learning a few lessons-perseverance, healthy living , winning etc.Great stuff!

However, what struck as very now is the setting….where is the father? This absolutely keys into a core consumer insight and the  current situation we see around us of absentee fathers and the fact that more mothers are having to teach their kids the values that fathers traditionally were meant to do. The mothers are single by choice or circumstance and no longer want to play victims to society. They are standing up for themselves and building values and good habits in their children; not leaving their sons out.

It shows the sensitivity of the brand to the fact that there is a whole demographic out there other than the usual dad and son rhetoric that needs to be catered to.

This advert underscores the significance of research in brand building because aside from being relevant, it is also aspirational– a LOT of mothers -aspire to take charge of their health and that of their families-husbands or not. Kudos to the Team for hitting this nail on the head and  further empowering women by helping them see themselves as role models too in their homes!

Have you seen an ad that speaks to the changing family structures recently? Do let us know!

  1. Hi Onone,
    Thanks for your feedback on the ad. It os quite aspirational for Nigeria Mums. However, the choice of racing to communicate is a not what Mums see themselves doing


  2. excellent publish, very informative. I’m wondering why the other specialists of this sector do not understand this. You should continue your writing. I’m sure, you’ve a great readers’ base already!


  3. Hi, I do believe this is an excellent web site. I stumbledupon it 😉 I am going to return yet again since I saved as a favorite it. Money and freedom is the best way to change, may you be rich and continue to guide other people.


  4. You actually make it appear so easy together with your presentation but I to find this topic to be actually something that I think I might by no means understand. It kind of feels too complex and extremely extensive for me. I am having a look forward on your next submit, I’ll attempt to get the hold of it!


  5. Hi there! This is my first comment here so I just wanted to give a quick shout out and say I genuinely enjoy reading your blog posts. Can you suggest any other blogs/websites/forums that deal with the same subjects? Thanks a ton!|
