Center Fruit jugalbandi between a tabalchi and a vocalist

Brand: Centre Fruit
Product: Chewing Gum
Medium: TVC
Agency: Ogilvy and Mather

We have a jugalbandi between a tabalchi and a vocalist, where the tabalchi is able to duplicate the vocalist’s skill through his tabla beats. But then the vocalist suddenly looks in the distance and begins lapping his tongue in a kind of tone that the tabalchi cannot replicate and the vocalist’s followers are quick to declare him a winner. Its only then that we see someone carrying a hoarding for Centre Fruit in the distance. Added are  interesting touches like the Tabalchi combing his hair and the vocalist’s supporters declaring him winner before anyone could react, make the TVC fun.

Behind the scenes:
To give this an authentic small town flavour, the commercial was shot in a temple compound at Wai, a small town near Pune.

Center Fruit is is a liquid filled gum and it stands for ‘irresistable taste’. The ‘irresistable taste’ is captured very well in the baseline, ‘kaisee jeebh laplapaayee’. Post the initial commercial of ‘Phone booth’ and the subsequent ‘ATM’ commercial aired in 2006-2007, the brand was being promoted more through flavour launch films.

The need was felt to do a theme commercial that would cut across masses. This is when the idea of the ‘Jugalbandi’ was born. The communication objective was to reiterate the brand proposition of ‘kaisee jeeb laplapayee’ in a refreshing way.
