Towards establishing its new brand identity, the company will also undertake a multimedia campaign which will be promoted across various TV, print, digital and outdoor. Minions are a popular phenomenon across all age groups and, hence, the TVC too aims to engage the young audience while capturing the essence of fun with the Minion characters. Besides, a web banner focussing on the launch of McFlurry Banana Oreo and Banana Oreo Soft Serve has also been launched by the brand.

The TVC uploaded on YouTube narrates how Minions and McFlurry's two new variants are going to delight its customers with the new look and feel.
