Dentsu Impact creates response to ‘unique challenge’ in new India campaign for Hitachi

Dentsu Aegis agency, Dentsu Impact, has created “everyday moments” in a TV campaign designed to shed perceptions in India that Hitachi air conditioners are too expensive.

The creative agency said it faced a “unique challenge” of retaining the brand’s premium image but making it “accessible”.

The ads feature Indian actress Samantha Prabhu applying make up in one, and sinking into a sofa in another.

Dentsu Impact chief creative officer Soumitra Karnik said it wanted the campaign to capture “simple, everyday moments” in a bid to overcome the perception that the brand was beyond reach for many Indians.
