The all-new Kurkure Chatpata Cheese is the perfect ‘jugalbandi’ of international cheese and Indian ‘chatpatapan’.
Staying true to its quirky personality, Kurkure, one of India’s most loved snack brands, has unveiled an entertaining new TVC campaign to introduce its latest flavour innovation – Kurkure Chatpata Cheese. With smooth international cheese and masala ka twist, the new permanent flavour stems from the globally successful Cheetos Crunchy Cheddar Jalapeño flavour.
As a brand that always captures the pulse of the nation, Kurkure’s latest offering embraces India’s growing affinity for dairy-flavoured snacks. The never-seen-before fusion flavour extends the brand’s play beyond the classic ‘masala’ flavour, which is unheard of in the collet category. The all-new Kurkure Chatpata Cheese aims to create curiosity amongst the Indian youth with its unique combination of international cheese and Indian ‘chatpatapan’ that is just ‘two much fun’.
Expressing the magic of fusion, the TVC opens with two families, one Indian and the other a foreigner, discussing their children’s love marriage. The Indian boy’s mother, who is skeptical of their union expresses her displeasure to her son, claiming that he would be better off marrying someone from an Indian family. While doing so, she offers the girl’s parents some Kurkure Chatpata Cheese, but instead tells them in English that she’s proud of her son’s choice. That’s when the ‘chatpata’ twist kicks in and the girl’s mother playfully responds, “chal jhoothi!”, shocking everyone in the room.
Speaking about the new film, Neha Prasad, Associate Director – Brand Marketing, Kurkure, PepsiCo India, said, “For over 20 years, Kurkure has been the family-entertainer that adds a spark of quirky masti into the daily lives of its consumers. We keep our consumers at the heart of everything we do by creating campaigns that illustrate unconventional, yet relatable modern Indian family moments. Our latest TVC intends to transform any family moment into an entertaining one with our new Chatpata Cheese fusion flavour that is truly ‘videsi mein desi chatpatapan’!”
Expressing her thoughts on the campaign, Ritu Nakra, Senior Vice President, Wunderman Thompson, “Kurkure now brings alive an irresistible new flavour by dramatizing the fusion of India’s favourite masaledar crunch with an International cheese flavour. Watch how ‘videsi mein desi chatpatapan’ will make a perfect snack in the new ad campaign.”
Not limited to a TVC, the Kurkure Chatpata Cheese ‘Videsi Mein Desi Chatpatapan’ campaign will also be brought to life through a robust 360-degree surround campaign across multiple platforms and an engaging social media initiative for its fans.
