Vodafone has rolled out two more films and a '#HakkeBakke' initiative for the ongoing IPL season.
One of the films opens with a boy holding an infant. The baby looks sleepy and starts crying. He cradles the infant in his arms until it falls asleep. With limited movement so as to not awaken the baby, he puts on his headphones and streams an action flick on his phone. A super says 'Be a Super Brother with Vodafone SuperNet' and the voice over introduces Vodafone's on-demand HD movies.
This film features two colleagues in office. They discuss what they did the previous day. One of them recalls enjoying the match on TV at home, alone. It turns out that his colleague was the designated 'Vodafone SuperFan' for the same IPL match. He recounts his experience from the time he enters the stadium, to when he receives his autographed ball as a souvenir. As he ends saying 'What a match', their colleagues have gathered around to hear his story and applaud him. The voice over says 'Be a SuperFan, with Vodafone SuperNet'.
Vodafone has also also rolled out an initiative #HakkeBakke. For the contest, a video featuring dancer Lauren Gottlieb has been created. After breaking into a jig following a six hit during the match, Gottlieb invites 'crazy cricket fans' to showcase their '#HakkeBakke' moves. They are required to record a video and share it on social media with the same hashtag.
Sandeep Kataria, director – commercial, Vodafone India, said, “Vodafone has been associated with IPL since its inception nine years ago.
