talentube launches TVC ‘Ek Tha Murga’

The perfect start to its far reaching, all-inclusive media campaign

Online PR News – 30-August-2012 – Mumbai/Maharashtra – Mumbai, August 29, 2012: A tale of ambition and glory and how, when they meet opportunity, destiny stands fulfilled. Well it isn’t just a story. It’s a metaphor for Talentube – the portal that gives talent its ‘Mauka’ and places it where it belongs. This metaphor gave rise to an alluring TVC called ‘Ek Tha Murga’. An innovative, clever and creative approach, this TVC will surely garner its own fan following. Click on http://youtu.be/SPY8HIdZIjc and watch the Ek Tha Murga!

Says Vinod Nair, CEO and Founder talentube.com, “Our approach was to be entertaining, have mass appeal and reach out to every sensibility. We want aspiring talent to know that ‘Mauka’ will not run away from them anymore. It was our own funny way of bringing our concept to everyone.”

Created by Publicis Capital, Ullas Chopra, ECD who conceptualised the TVC explains that, ‘Mauka’ is an idea that was born when Vinod Nair (CEO and Founder talentube.com) threw us a challenge of creating something that will get talked about and would have the potential of going viral; something truly entertaining. Vinod urged us to think beyond a 30” spot - think for the Internet and cinema and with a larger format available, we could think scale and larger-than-life exaggeration.”

This spot unfolds the tale of ‘Chicken’ who represents the all-elusive ‘Mauka’. The story begins in a ‘Mohalla’ where the elusive ‘Mauka’ - a chicken that runs on water and on walls, is impossible to catch. This concept borrows from real life that a chicken is difficult to corner and catch just like good opportunities for talent and establishes the foundation of Talentube that it helps aspirants by providing Mauka for them. Ek Tha Murga was created with one main aim in mind - to be an entertaining, fun, understandable, user-friendly, reaching-everyone piece of communication. This metaphor was conceptualised to stand for the fact that at talentube.com, anyone wanting a stepping stone into the film and entertainment industry, will find hundreds of real opportunities on real films and projects.

Keeping with the reach that Talentube wishes to have with its audience, it has launched a multi media campaign encompassing cinema, television and radio spots, as well as outdoor ads and intercollegiate festivals.
