Mondelez India’s brand Cadbury 5Star has brought a quirky campaign that brings together the perfect fusion of indulgence and technology while manifesting its ‘Do Nothing’ proposition.

In partnership with Google and conceptualised by Ogilvy, the brand is upping its game a notch higher by introducing the ‘5Star Do Nothing Assistant’, the first-ever AI that helps you do nothing.


While most mobile assistants help you become more productive, the 5Star Do Nothing mode on every android device with Google Assistant gives you more perspective and does the exact reverse. All you need to do is, say "Ok Google, eat a 5Star" to get your Google Assistant to lean back, relax, and motivate you to do nothing as well.

The AI has hundreds of built-in responses and is trained to answer any question you might have with a cheeky response that makes you rethink your plans and wonder if you are better off just doing nothing.  


Anil Viswanathan, Senior Director, Marketing (Chocolates), Insights and Analytics, Mondelez India, said, “Cadbury 5Star has always been at the heart of our country’s youth culture through its innovative campaigns and quirky narratives weaved into relatable scenarios. With the ‘Do Nothing’ campaign, our focus has been to generate some light-hearted relief in serious times and reiterate the most important message of today to unwind and take a break. We are taking this a step ahead with our latest association with the Google Assistant to create a humorous and chocolaty experience for our target audience, strengthen our consumer connect and propagate our brand message. This campaign is a testimony of 5Star’s brand persona of being witty and quirky, which perfectly resonates with Gen Z which is increasingly getting inclined towards all things tech.”

Sukesh Nayak, Chief Creative Officer, Ogilvy India, said, “Today’s digitally native youth are always hungry to pack more into their day and AI assistants help them multitask and do more. However, at times, it’s also good to just chill. So, we helped people do just that. Say ‘Ok Google. Eat a 5Star’ and enter the ‘Do Nothing Mode’ and then enjoy the Google Assistant help you do nothing.  Answers to most commonly asked questions are ready in this mode. So, give it a try and enjoy doing nothing.”

The roll-out of the campaign will be supported by a 360-degree communication approach, designed to encourage the youth to get a first-hand experience of the latest feature at the back of digital films, radio, social media and influencer-led activations.

Shekhar Banerjee, Chief Client Officer and West Head, Wavemaker India, said, “This is yet another example that advertising is not limited to any format, but we need to focus on the core brand idea, the right platform and the connection we build with our audiences. This is a great example of Personalisation @ Scale. Every user differently interacts with their voice assistant. We are making sure we reach these different audiences and make 5Star relevant.”
