Vicks Cough Drops, a product under the Vicks brand renowned for providing a clear and uninterrupted voice, has unveiled a campaign in anticipation of the ICC World Cup 2023, featuring Yuvraj Singh. This campaign, bearing the title #VicksKholIndiaBol cheer anthem, urges Indian fans to raise their voices to the highest decibels during the upcoming cricket season. Sahil Sethi from P&G India delves into the campaign’s objectives, concept, and more regarding the #VicksKholIndiaBol anthem featuring Yuvraj Singh. The anthem’s lyrics emphasize how voices hold the power to create the most resonant cheers, how these cheers can shift the course of a match, and how they can magnify the passion of cricket fans hailing from every corner of our country.

Who conceptualized Vicks And Yuvraj Singh Featuring #VicksKholIndiaBol campaign?

The #VicksKholIndiaBol campaign was conceptualized and curated by Vicks India in collaboration with LK Saatchi & Saatchi. Rohit Malkani, the Joint National Creative Director at L&K Saatchi & Saatchi, mentioned the creative process behind the campaign: “For generations, Vicks Cough Drops has been known for relieving khich-khich and soothing itchy throats. This time, the challenge was slightly different. With the cricket season approaching, Vicks aimed to create a unique buzz. The connection between cheering/voice and the brand was evident, but the team wanted to approach it differently. After multiple brainstorming sessions, the team embarked on a journey to find India’s ‘Voice Champions,’ rallying the support of 1.42 billion Indians through an anthem featuring the ‘six sixes’ man himself, Yuvraj Singh, and over 220 cast members. It has been a rewarding partnership with the Vicks team, who supported and collaborated with us throughout the process.”

Sahil Sethi, the Category Leader for Personal Healthcare at P&G India, explained the concept behind this campaign: “When we thought about ‘Vicks cough drops,’ it has always been about providing consumers with a ‘khich-khich free’ voice. When we brainstormed ideas to make the brand relevant to our customers, especially during this cricketing season, we realized that cheering is crucial to watching cricket. Vicks Cough Drops can naturally fit in because sometimes fans may experience throat irritation while cheering for our team. We want to ensure that fans can cheer without any discomfort, and that’s the main idea behind this anthem.”

The primary goal of this anthem for the brand is to raise awareness of the product, as it aligns seamlessly with the cricketing season and is expected to boost sales.

When asked why Vicks chose to create an anthem instead of a traditional ad campaign, Sethi explained, “We wanted to go beyond a typical advertisement and connect with fans on a deeper level. Music and dance are integral to cheering; even the anthem’s lyrics resonate with our brand.”

The #VicksKholIndiaBol anthem aims to empower the 1.4 billion Indians, whom the brand has dubbed ‘voice champions,’ to cheer for their team.

Speaking about the anthem cricket icon Yuvraj Singh shared, “There is nothing more motivating for a player than the encouraging cheers of our fans. I am thrilled to be a part of the #VicksKholIndiaBol anthem as we call on cricket lovers to become Voice champions and cheer out loud. The #VicksKholIndiaBol Cricket anthem not only promotes unity and inclusivity in cheering for India but serves as a powerful reminder that when we unite our voices, there is nothing we cannot achieve. I also enjoyed learning and performing the anthem in Indian sign language and thank Vicks and India Signing hands for this opportunity to connect with this very special community of cricket fans.”

Mr. Alok Kejriwal, Founder & CEO – India Signing Hands shared, “As a deaf individual I faced difficulties in acquiring news from channels or communicating with hearing people due to lack of accessibility tools such as interpreters and subtitles. Realising that many deaf persons would also be facing the same issues, a group of us came together to start India Signing Hands (ISH) with the goal of providing solutions to “Accessibility” issues faced by the deaf people in India. Vicks has been a household brand for many of us, and we were so excited to be approached by Vicks to create this one-of-its-kind fun anthem in Indian sign language to enable the deaf to also join in to cheer during this cricket season. The anthem will soon be released on our social channels reaching over 6 lakh members of the community. We applaud Vicks Cough Drops for this inclusive effort and thank Yuvraj for his enthusiastic support.”
