Cadbury Dairy Milk Chocolate melts hearts with new TVC

Cadbury, together with creative agency Ogilvy, has launched a new TVC for Cadbury Dairy Milk Chocolate, reinforcing the brand’s ethos of generosity, to consumers and markets in Southeast Asia.

The Cadbury’s brand platform of “goodness in everyone” has been consistently driving growth for the brand in Southeast Asia. The latest TVC was developed with the objective to demonstrate the Cadbury goodness or “Rasakan Lembutnya Kebaikan” (Taste/Feel the softness of goodness).

The story is anchored in the universal truth of not judging a book by its cover, to go beyond snap judgment and allowing softness in action and reaction, which manifests into a little more goodness around us.

Something we all need more of. The authentic tone of the brand and the storytelling which has the duality of goodness in us as well as the product is captured in the story and also breaks ad stereotypes in Southeast Asia.

Nikhil Nicholas, Chocolate Category Lead, South East Asia said: “We fell in love with the script and it’s amazing to see it come to life on screen. Rasakan Lembutnya Kebaikan is our way of marrying both product and purpose for Cadbury Dairy Milk by showing how softness leads to goodness which speaks to the heart of this piece of communication.”

Nicolas Courant, Chief Creative Officer Ogilvy Singapore said: “Our Ogilvy teams in Southeast Asia came together and undertook a massive strategic and creative exploration process across Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia and Philippines, over a 6-month period to bring this story to life.

It was a true reflection of our commitment to borderless creativity and to Cadbury as a brand. In some markets our relationship with Cadbury stretches over 50 years, so we could tap into an immense amount of knowledge and experience across the network.”

The TVC has launched in Indonesia and Malaysia and set for launch in the Philippines next month.
