Vicks #TouchOfCare | Voice for equal rights and comfort for all
Vicks has been part of every family. We have literally grown up with Vicks product by our side at the times of cold, flu and any other common diseases. This particular viral video launched on March 29, 2017, tells the story of how everyone needs comfort and a touch of care and why everyone deserves to get one through the life story of Gauri Sawant and her orphaned child Gayatri.
Gauri Sawant is just like any other person except that she is a transgender. Because of this, she had to face lots of difficulties. Even adopting and raising a child for her was a great struggle. This would not have been the case if she could have got a touch of care of our society as any other men and women get. Every person deserves the touch of care.
Directed by Neeraj Ghaywan along with the creative advertising agencies Publicis Singapore team, Vicks came up with a creative campaign, which resonates with the company’s motto. Throughout the decades, Vicks has dedicated its service and product in order to make it possible to provide the same comfort and relieve at the time of pain to all the people whether they are rich or poor, or men or women. The message that it wants to deliver to the public is well received among masses especially internet user.
Many ads come and many ads go away and so also are true in the world of the campaign in India. But only few one gets stitched in our hearts. Through this video, Vicks has achieved its hope to raise the voice for unequal treatment that exists in our country and our responsibility to look after this issue. Let us join in this campaign and be a part of the change.
