How Tata Tackled the Situation of Ellyse Perry’s Big Hit at WPL

The Women’s Premier League (WPL) witnessed a powerful six from Ellyse Perry that went viral for an unexpected reason. Not only did it clear the boundary, but it also shattered the rear window of a Tata Punch EV, a sponsor’s car on display. This incident, though unusual, turned into a positive moment for both cricket and charity, thanks to Tata’s brilliant response and creative thinking by FCB Kinnect, the marketing agency.

Tata- From Broken Window to Bright Idea

Prior to the WPL season, Tata Motors had announced a unique initiative: a β‚Ή5,00,000 donation to a worthy cause every time a player hits their display car during a match. Staying true to their word, they pledged this amount towards installing solar panels at TATA Memorial Hospital, Kolkata, in collaboration with Tata Power. This pre-existing commitment not only highlighted Tata’s social responsibility but also added an extra layer of intrigue to the situation.

Tata Embracing the Oops for Good

Tata didn’t just fulfill their promise; they saw an opportunity and partnered with FCB Kinnect to turn it into a win for their brand image. Capitalizing on the viral moment, they gifted Ellyse Perry a framed piece of the broken window. But wait, there’s a twist! To represent the “electric vibe” of the game, a bolt was added to the framed window, transforming a potentially negative situation into a witty and memorable gesture. This unique approach garnered appreciation online and showcased Tata’s good sportsmanship.
