    Pal Banaye Magical

    Dilemma: The brand never really found asustainable positioning platform ever sinceit ditched its " No One Can Eat Just One

    The brand decided to experiment yet again with the tagline , bringing inthe new one - "Pal Banaye Magical " meaning " Making Moments

    Magical "

    " Pal Banaye Magical " sounds good and the creatives can work on thistheme with a variety of stories. But it never comes anyway near to thebrand's original tagline.And these frequent changes in the positioningdoesn't augur well for the brand's overall strength.

    Best Buddies TVC 2014-Youth Connect & Social Media

    As part of strengthening the brand philosophy Pal banaye magical,the potato chip maker plans to make Lays Best Buddies as the

    coolest group on campus with the most happening and magical funmoments.

    Conceptualised by JWT, the brand has launched a TVC featuring Lays

    Best Buddies, following teaser updates and an exclusive trailer videoon its social networks since January. Interestingly, the ad is beingpromoted as episode 1 of Lays Best Buddies Season 2014,suggesting that there will be additional episodes to this college story.

    Best Buddies TVC 2014-Youth Connect & Social Media

    An exclusive trailer video of the ad (projected as an episode) was then shared onthe wall. Titled Lays Best Buddies First Look, the one minute trailerintroduces the group through bits and pieces from the TVC, while bracing up

    fans for the season of friendship.

    When you think of snack foods and beverages, you cant help imagine a collegecanteen or the crowds of students thronging away at food stalls. So the conceptof a cool college gang, the Lays Best Buddies in this ad isnt particularlyexciting. But, the concept of storytelling surely is! The well targeted storytelling

    has been well reflected on the brands social platforms too.
