Samsung’s OOH campaign for WindFree AC Technology rolled out by Cheil India & Platinum Outdoor

Samsung’s extensive one month campaign includes bright, LED-lit creatives visible on highways.

An innovative out-of-home campaign by Samsung for its brand-new Split ACs with WindFree technology is executed by Cheil India in association with Platinum Outdoor, a unit of Madison World. The new technology which is the highlight of this innovation, delivers powerful yet gentle cooling with 23000 micro holes. Following a two-year pandemic-mandated lockdown, the objective of the activity was to capitalize on bringing out the best through OOH innovation and a huge revival of outdoor commute by placing large hoardings and branding at high traffic areas.

The campaign covers four cities across India, including Jaipur, Pune, Ahmedabad, and Kolkata. Samsung's bright and eye-catching billboards have been placed in prominent, high traffic locations in each city, targeting high footfall locations and commuter areas.

To creatively impact consumers, a large scale backlit cut out of AC was executed with a magnifying lens that magnifies the micro holes in the AC. The magnifying lens and AC were both backlit. "Samsung WindFree powerful gentle cooling" was highlighted with acrylic letters. With the use of blue ice as a backdrop in the creatives, the campaign intended to depict a cool environment because of the ACs.
