CCI launches cotton video campaign in bollywood style

Jul '14
Cotton Council International (CCI) is set to add some Bollywood excitement to the lives of cotton’s consumers through the launch of a new video campaign called “Check the Label.” The campaign is a hilarious take on some of the most iconic Bollywood scenes and shows how these could have been different if only cotton had a role to play. 
 
The two videos that are being released as part of the campaign are spoofs of sequences from “Himmatwala” and “Deewar.”
 
CCI’s first video called “Cottonwaala” shows Hero No. 1, a brawny rugged type trying to save a poor father’s hard earned money from villains. But, alas, despite his macho strength and showy maneuvers he not only fails but gets beaten up for his trouble. His uncomfortable, restrictive, leathery black bodysuit confines his movements and just gets in the way. 
 
Enter Hero No. 2, the Cottonwaala, all cotton, all at ease, all fluid and flexible, flowing like a true cotton ninja. He takes on the villains with great ease and panache. Moving effortlessly, he kicks and punches his way through to emerge victorious. 
 
The second film is a parody of one of the most famous dialogues from the movie “Deewar.” This video presents cotton’s love as equivalent to that of Maa’s, showing us how cotton is part of our lives and takes care of us.
 
“We are excited to launch this ‘Check the Label’ video campaign, an initiative to re-connect consumers in India with the fabric which they have grown up in,” said Agnieszka Fijol of CCI. “Cotton holds a special place in every Indian’s heart and we wanted to portray this love by using elements from another space that Indians love: Bollywood. 
 
"The combination of the two ‘loves’ has resulted in these great videos by FoxyMoron that are funny and engaging and bring out an important message. In an age of fabric substitution, we want consumers to care about what’s in their clothes and make the effort to ‘check the label'."
 
The videos are a part of a larger campaign in which CCI wants to make cotton a part of consumers’ daily conversations. The campaign is aimed at reminding them why they love cotton, why cotton best meets their needs, and encouraging them to check the label when buying their clothes and home textiles.
