Amul launches app to milk the Olympics, August 06, 2012
Amul has time and again come up with campaigns pushing good old milk and how it must be an inevitable part of the daily breakfast. The company's creative agency Draftfcb Ulka, too, has been a consistent partner in such campaigns. One would still remember the agency's 'Dude, where's the doodh' campaign for Amul not too long ago. And it would be safe to say that such initiatives have helped 'doodh' find a lot of favour with the otherwise junk food loving youth.
With Olympics being on everybody's minds and Amul being the official sponsor of the Indian contingent at the London 2012 Olympic Games, it is once again time for milk to take centre stage in the company's digital initiative on Facebook with the central thought – Milk, the world's original energy drink.
Draftfcb Ulka Interactive has planned and executed the 'Energise the Olympians' Facebook application to encourage brand interactivity on social media and in the process also boost the Indian spirit and support for the Indian athletes in London.
The application allows users to choose their favourite sport and extend their support by energising the contingent with a glass of milk. Users can also add a badge to their profile as a token of appreciation for showing their support. The app in a short while of its launch has already gathered a significant amount of Likes on Facebook.
