Horlicks gives children a chance to become the fourth member of the 'Awesome Squad' by participating in its 'gamified' version of the TVC.

Ever wondered what your 3D animated avatar would look like? Horlicks gives kids a chance to find out. Following the release of the 'Awesome Squad' TVC, Horlicks has rolled out a new 'gamified' version of the campaign. Featuring cartoon characters Awi, Sonny and Meeya, representing Chocolate, Malt and Kesar Badam - the three popular flavours of the product, respectively - the game not only encourages children to consume milk, but also gives them an opportunity to feature in the next Horlicks commercial by becoming the fourth member of the 'Awesome Squad' (TnC apply).

In line with its objective to make milk consumption a delight, 'Awesome Squad' claims to be the first ever 3D animated campaign which is being extended to the website and mobile space too. Children can participate in a host of games and contests on these platforms.
