Thums Up celebrates 75 years of India’s independence with its new #HarHaathToofan campaign: Thums Up, Coca-Cola India’s first billion-dollar homegrown brand, has unveiled a new campaign commemorating 75 years of India’s independence.
Through this campaign, the brand celebrates their courage, perseverance & enduring strength that made them overcome all odds which came their way. With a compelling message and creative visualisation, Thums Up aims to evoke deep patriotism amongst the audience.
The campaign adopts a powerful animated storytelling style, which seeks to inculcate feelings of pride and devotion, in the citizens of the country.
The #HarHaathToofan campaign features inspirational stories of athletes like Sourav Ganguly, former Indian national cricket team captain and current President – BCCI, who instilled self-belief & fearlessness in the Indian cricket team taking it to new heights of victory ; Avani Lekhara, first Indian woman to win a gold medal at the Paralympics, firing her way to the top, despite losing her legs in an accident when she was 11 yrs old ; and Nikhat Zareen, Indian Boxer and IBA Women’s World Boxing 2022 gold medalist, who became a world champion by showcasing great endurance and fortitude in a sport, which was traditionally considered masculine. The new campaign by the brand is an extension under its #PalatDe umbrella, which was initially unveiled last year during Thums Up’s worldwide partnership with the Olympic and Paralympic Games Tokyo 2020.
Announcing the new campaign, Tish Condeno, Sr. Director, Sparkling Flavors Category, Coca-Cola India and Southwest Asia said, “As one of the iconic homegrown brands of India, Thums Up has always stood for values of strength and resilience. Thums Up’s 2021 #PalatDe Campaign, in partnership with Olympics & Paralympic Games, gained immense love and appreciation. This year, Thums Up celebrates 75 resilient years of India’s Independence, with a special #PalatDe campaign about the many hands that have been building India. We are proud to partner with multiple inspiring individuals from India who have made the country immensely proud over the years – Sourav Ganguly, Avani Lekhara, and Nikhat Zareen, among many others.”
Speaking about the new campaign, Sourav Ganguly, former Indian national cricket team captain and current President – BCCI, said, “I have been proud to be associated with Coca-Cola India as the brand’s ambassador since 2017. Today, I am elated to be a part of Thums Up’s new campaign #HarHaathToofan, which beautifully marks the celebration of India’s 75 years of independence.”
