7Up Nimbu Dikhega Cash Milega- TVC
As if the ever increasing inflation wasn't enough, the recession is here! And even youngsters are feeling the pinch. They need money to go for movies, eat out, go for dates, buy gifts, please high-maintenance girlfriends etc. Imagine taking your girlfriend out on a date, for a movie, or maybe for shopping!
7Up comes to your rescue. Because 7Up is giving out money, lots of money, to the tune of 3 crores. All you have to do is buy a 7Up bottle, look under the crown and you can win cash. As a brand we understand the issues that the youth have, and what really bheja fries them. That's what the new communication is all about.
The story is being told through song by a beggar who is there on the road and is almost singing about the guy's frustration. The beggar is the musical sutradhar or narrator.
The film opens on an expensive side walk cafe with a young couple sitting at one table surrounded by lots of shopping bags. The girl is eating merrily, while the guy looks worried and troubled. He is not eating anything. We see a beggar singing next to them, almost as if he is narrating the guys' frustration! The waiter comes in with the 7Up bottle and asks the guy if he is frustrated from being broke. The guy nods and picks up the bottle and that's when we reveal the promo about winning cash up to Rs 3 crore by finding lemons under the crown.
At the end we see the same crown in the guy's hand and he is beaming encouraging the girl to eat more.
Girlfriend chane khaati nahin,
Chane toh ghode khaate hain

Mehngi cheezein bhaati hain
