Vizeum in partnership with MTV has launched “The Junkyard Project” with the objective of stirring an important awakening in the minds of citizens across, especially the youth. Click here for the details on the campaign.
Commenting on MTV’s The Junkyard Project, Sumeli Chatterjee, Head – Marketing, Media & Insights, Youth Entertainment, Viacom18, “MTV started with a basic question how can we make conversations around do-not-litter cool and interactive. #DunkThatJunk is gamification of the concept that junk should be dunked inside the dustbin. The simplicity of the concept coupled with interactive presentation is the key reason why these videos spread like wild-fire. And, also drew heavy participation by Bollywood and TV celebrities. It is just a game, but with a serious message in it. We have driven 1.5 Mn + interactions in a fortnight of launching this campaign on social media. And, this is just the beginning.”
Samarjit Rajkumar, Executive VP, Vizeum India, comments “True to its spirit of being in the forefront of trend-setting, it has been an exciting journey together with MTV in re-defining the Swacch Bharat initiative leveraging MTV’s partner celebs attracting as many as 6000 user-generated videos in the first 2 weeks itself. We are now creating platforms for our audience to live this trend and subsequently, more platforms for them to share with their friends once they choose to be the advocates.”
