New Delhi, 25 April 2017: Boost, one of GSK’s leading brands in the Health Food Drinks category, has launched a three-part digital video campaign with the youth icon Virat Kohli.

The video features Virat Kohli preparing a young kid to play a bigger game in his own unique style. This is one of first set of long form branded digital series created exclusively for kids. The videos are about how Virat coaches a young kid in his own unique & unconventional ways & helps him prepare to #playabiggergame.

Last year we had launched a new communication platform called ‘Play A Bigger Game’, in line with the brand purpose of ‘Unleashing the winner in you (kids)’. This platform has worked brilliantly for us in terms of connecting with the core TG of 8-12-year-old kids leading to the best-ever business results. We feel that the platform is so powerful that it can transcend across touch-points to connect with kids across multiple touch-points that are of interest to them.”

Hence, we decided to launch the first ever branded digital series with Virat Kohli to engage with kids. The digital trilogy showcases how Virat coaches a young kid in his own unique ways & helps him prepare to Play A Bigger Game.”

This is one of the biggest digital campaigns in GSK CH India that aims to connect with consumers through a medium (digital) & genre (long form digital video) that provides the strongest scope of engagement with them. We are confident that this will help in a big way in strengthening the love for Boost amongst kids.”
Talking about the association with Boost, Virat Kohli said, “Right since I was a kid, Boost, led by stalwarts like Kapil Dev, Sachin, MS Dhoni, has always been a brand that has inspired kids to unleash the winner in themselves. I have been associated with Boost for over 4 years now & elated that the baton is with me now to continue this journey of inspiring kids to unleash the winner in themselves.
