Hitachi creates five-minute long anthem #NothingDirty with Rapper Badshah

The YouTube video, that promotes the air-conditioner's self cleansing feature, has crossed a million views.

This is a category that strives on innovation, so the consumer durables brand Hitachi has its eyes set on the digital savvy 'netizens' who are high on any innovation. To capture their attention, the company has associated itself with rapper Badshah (Aditya Prateek Singh Sisodia) for the quirky summer anthem #NothingDirty, which highlights the automatic cleaning feature of its iClean air conditioner.

Hitachi creates five-minute long anthem #NothingDirty with Rapper Badshah
In the over five-minute video, Badshah, who is apparently known for his ability to turn any lyrics into a foot-tapping number is thrown a challenge by video jockey Bani J on behalf of Hitachi. The task at hand is to come up with the next big chart-topper by turning some gross lyrics into the "coolest and cleanest" song of the summer -- just like Hitachi's iClean Plus technology that automatically cleans the AC's filter. The result is a cool, fun, and upbeat anthem, about which there's #NothingDirty.

Conceptualised and executed by Dentsu Creative Impact, the digital video released on YouTube has fetched over a million views. The audio composition and lyrics are by Badshah. Shiraz Bhattacharya is the director, as well as the director of photography.
