Dentsu Webchutney pushes gender equality in Valentine’s Day ad campaign

Dentsu Webchutney has created a campaign for Platinum Guild International around Valentine’s Day called #EqualsInLove.

The campaign makes a case for gender equality and being comfortable with reversal of roles that are the norm in Indian society

The campaign ties into a promo that offers winners a vacation overseas.

Platinum Guild International’s director of consumer marketing Sujala Martis said: “If left to its own, the conversation around love and relationships can get very sugary and mushy.

“As a brand, we stand for a certain level of maturity and wanted to approach this conversation from a slightly higher order lens.”

Dentsu Webchutney senior creative director Aalap Desai added: “We wanted to not just celebrate couples who match each other as equals, but to challenge the status quo.

“Each film overturns traditional roles, becoming a source of aspiration.”

The campaign runs between 1st and 21st February.
