Unacademy Combines Students' Desire to Learn with IPL in Quirky Campaign Film

Unacademy Combines Students' Desire to Learn with IPL in Quirky Campaign Film
Unacademy has released a new campaign film called ‘Cracking the Game’ to mark its first year of association with the Indian Premier League and celebrate the continuous process of learning. Conceived by Lowe Lintas, the film draws a fun correlation between students' desire to learn and the passionate cricket action seen on-field during the Dream11 IPL 2020.

If there's one thing that is culturally relevant to every Indian, it is that every experience – be it a movie, a story, a book or a game – is something to learn from, brought to life with the quintessential question: 'Kya Seekha?' Powered with this insight, the film – aimed to appeal to 15 to 30-year-olds – starts by asking students what they have learnt from the IPL this year and then beautifully connects intense sporting moments with learning concepts such as the Pythagoras theorem, magnetic induction, Darwin’s theory of evolution, the melting point of metals, etc.


Speaking about the campaign, Sonal Mishra, director, marketing at Unacademy, said: “Our efforts during this IPL have all been about how our brand proposition, which is to learn from the best, can be tied to Cricket. While brainstorming ideas for this film, the takeaway was that all of us learn everyday, from the most unlikely sources, and often unknowingly. So, we wanted to see if we could draw parallels between various moments during the matches and learning. The response to the film has been spectacular and we're delighted that our brand message is reaching deeper with this film."

Commenting on the campaign idea, Puneet Kapoor, regional creative officer, Lowe Lintas, added: "Unacademy’s spirit and philosophy of ‘Let’s Crack It!’ isn’t limited to students only, but inspires across. So when the marketing team came up with the challenge of cracking a great idea with IPL footage only, we thought of applying the academic gyaan in interesting, relevant, yet irrational juxtaposition. We had lots of fun in mixing and matching footage with theories and principles to come up with the gags."

The campaign film has already garnered over 2.5 million views across social media and digital platforms. Over two million views of the video have come from Twitter alone, becoming yet another viral campaign for the EdTech major.
