Describe the objective of the promotion.
objective was to bring its communication in line with overall MAGGI positioning of “Taste, Health & Happiness” – so far it had been built around the product story, the tonality being humour/laughter with a tagline “Its Different”

It was important to have and communicate a category relevant Health and Wellness Story. So we looked at it in a unique way which could be owned only by MAGGI Sauces.

Describe how the promotion developed from concept to implementation.
We started with the insight 'laughter is the best medicine' - the health benefits of laughter are well established. This was brought to life and taken directly to the consumer with a Haha Car - a specially designed car that could go around telling jokes. A telephone hotline was set up where people could submit jokes. These jokes were told to consumers in a series of events across the country.

Explain why the method of promotion was most relevant to the product or service.
We have been making consumers laugh over these years with our communication, over an oft repeated line ‘It’s different’. We now move the conversation from the product to the consumer.

Now with MAGGI Sauces ‘Spread laughter & happiness, Make India healthy – Make a difference’*

Describe the success of the promotion with both client and consumer including some quantifiable results.
4 million calls to the hotline
56,000+ jokes submitted
400,000+ direct contacts on-ground
