Wunderman Thompson India and Tata Wiron launch ‘Wise Little Birds’ raising social distancing awareness
Wunderman Thompson South Asia has created this ‘Wise Little Birds’ social distancing campaign for Tata Wiron, one of India’s largest wires manufacturers.
The film aims to raise community awareness amongst the farmers of the nation by practising social distancing. The 2D animation, made in Hindi and English, conveys a serious message through simple and positive lightheartedness.
India will soon be moving into lockdown 4.0 and are making all attempts to return to normalcy while observing the necessary precautions. However, as soon as talk of easing restrictions surface, cases of violations to government guidelines and negligence reemerge, continuing to thwart efforts of restricting the Coronavirus disease.
With agriculture being the mainstay of the Indian economy, the government has allowed farmers to begin their harvesting and seeding activities with several norms being relaxed to a large extent to strengthen this foundational sector. These areas could then become possible COVID-19 resurgence points, so the farming communities must safeguard themselves in order to protect themselves.
“Commenting on the film, Anurag Pandey, Chief of Marketing and Sales, Global Wires India said, “For Tata Wiron, the farming community has always been at the core of our retail segment and all our activities are pivoted around it. Tata Wiron’s Wise Little Birds is yet another attempt to protect the ‘precious jewels’ of our nation. I hope this relevantly timed film acts as a constant reminder to the entire human fraternity in general to maintain safe social distance which is even more crucial now, with economy trying to march back to normalcy.”
“The challenge was exciting, to convince our planet’s most gregarious animal, humans to restrict their natural behaviour. We took it on and imagined the current world situation from the lens of another specie who are famed to ‘flock together’. If they can stay apart, why can’t we?”, cheerfully remarked Arjun Mukherjee, ECD & VP, Wunderman Thompson, Kolkata.
Vijay Jacob Parakkal, Senior VP & Managing Partner, Wunderman Thompson said, “We are very thrilled to start our association with Tata Wiron. This is a very timely and relevant message for our farmers as they bounce back to work.”
