Cadbury Silk, the iconic chocolate brand under the Mondelez umbrella, has once again set the stage for a heartwarming Valentine’s Day celebration with its latest campaign, #StoryOfUS. In collaboration with acclaimed director Zoya Akhtar and the enchanting touch of GenAI, Cadbury Silk aims to redefine the essence of love by delving into the intricacies and cherished moments that shape every romantic tale.

Cadbury Silk Valentine’s Day Campaign: #StoryOfUS

Over the years, Cadbury Silk has carved a niche for itself as the chocolate of choice for expressing love, especially on Valentine’s Day. This year’s campaign, #StoryOfUS, endeavors to spotlight the often-overlooked nuances of relationships, celebrating the small gestures, shared dreams, and mutual understanding that form the foundation of lasting love.

Director Zoya Akhtar’s Creative Influence

The campaign’s creative narrative benefits from the artistic prowess of renowned director Zoya Akhtar, whose vision adds a cinematic touch to the storytelling. Akhtar’s ability to capture the essence of emotions aligns seamlessly with Cadbury Silk’s tradition of being a storyteller of love.

GenAI Magic: Transforming Moments into Gifts

Taking innovation to the next level, Cadbury Silk incorporates the magic of GenAI to provide a unique and personalized gifting experience. The special packaging of Silk chocolates will feature QR codes that, when scanned, allow individuals to upload their most cherished moments. GenAI will then weave these moments into an enchanting AI film, creating an ideal Valentine’s Day gift that encapsulates the essence of the relationship.
