With its digital premier going online on September 20th, the TVC will be airing in five different languages from October 10, 2015 across leading English, Hindi and other regional entertainment, movie and music channels.
This festive season, Dell’s television commercial inspires the sentiment of goodness which prevails through festivities, seeing Indians reach out and share the joy of celebration in order to spread the festive cheer.
Conceptualised and executed by Grey Group, the Dell festive TVC brings alive Dell’s message to “#Share the Joy” using the power of technology, because “Baantne se hi khushiyaan badhti hain” when it comes to the togetherness which is central to the Indian festive season. It brings alive the viral nature of festive cheer, and how technology can play an active role in multiplying the effect of a good deed by inspiring others to follow, both in reality and in the virtual world.
The TVC begins with a young man who is unable to go home for the festival of Diwali, and he shares his disappointment on his social network using his Dell laptop. His friends respond by showing up at his home to include him in the festivities and make the celebration extra special.
A woman witnesses this small act of goodness on social media, and decides to book tickets for her household help using her Dell desktop in order to reunite him with his family during the festivities. A brother-sister duo gain inspiration from this gesture, and include children playing on the street in the festivity. They project a life-sized live stream of the celebration of Dussehra onto a wall nearby so the children can enjoy the celebration.
Dell powers the technology which facilitates the social nature of happiness and showcases how its range of devices - desktops, 2-in-1s, All-in-ones, Laptops and Projectors – act as enablers which can aid customers to #sharethejoy.
