How Brands Celebrated Ganesh Chaturthi with Creative Ads

Ganesh Chaturthi is a huge, four-day festival dedicated to the Hindu god Ganesh—the
elephant deity. Ganesh Chaturthi, which means “Celebration of the Chaturthi”, is celebrated
on the fourth day of the waxing moon in the Hindu calendar. The festival primarily celebrates
Ganesh’s triumph over the demon, MahISHASURA, by praying for Ganesh’s victory in the
struggle between good and evil.
During this season, brand advertising is in full swing. Brands invest in meaningful and heart-
warming campaigns to send the message to their audiences. As the harbinger of prosperity
and remover of obstacles is celebrated, brands choose to take the higher-order and have a
strong brand message. 
What are some of the best Ganesh Chaturthi ads by brands? Let’s have a look: 
Creative Film Campaigns

  1. Brooke Bond Red Label
    In a tea-loving country like India, the brand used its product and the festive occasion to sell
    an offbeat concept. Showing the interaction between one man who wants to buy an idol, and
    a shopkeeper, they outlined how secularism can bring people closer. This heart-touching ad
    was loved by many, especially for its tackling of a sensitive subject in a tasteful manner.

  2. Truebil 
    Aimed at reducing water pollution during the festivities, Truebil, a pre-owned car brand,
    launched #CoolGannu campaign, a sea-friendly initiative with ice sculptures of God
    Ganesha. As part of the initiative, Truebil offered attractive little ice Ganeshas carved entirely
    by hand for every car purchased from the platform. The cute and quirky Ganesha figurines
    have a shelf life of 24 hours before they melt away. The conscious and eco-friendly message
    behind this ad is truly commendable!

    future, and Reliance Fresh demonstrated this through campaign titles ‘A prayer for modern
    problems”. Here, their focus was on ensuring that our children are given a sustainable
    future, The children create their own Gannu with fruits and vegetables, and sing a unique
    song where they address all the different environmental concerns in the world. They
    collectively pray that more people will live responsibly, and like Lord Ganesha, remove the
    obstacles of a troublesome future.

    In current times, the message of ‘Stay home, stay safe’ has been echoed by brands all over
    the globe. In the Indian context, ICICI Lombard made the best use of the opportunity
    presented by Ganesh Chaturthi, to drive home a message of responsibility. By using a child
    to deliver the message, they encouraged people to continue their celebrations, but indoors.

    your neighbours’ by choosing to celebrate the festival safely from home.
