Tata AIA launches brand campaign 'Love Unconditionally', a new take on true love

Mumbai, February 21, 2018:
Tata AIA Life (Tata AIA) Insurance Company Limited launched their new brand campaign ‘Love Unconditionally’. The campaign portrays ‘term product’ an act of selfless love since the purchaser of the product will never get any benefit for his or her own self. Today the protection gap in the Indian market is close to 93%. Tata AIA’s primary aim is to provide protection to consumers and hence the focus on pure protection products. The campaign has captures the essence of protection and the responsibility that consumers have towards their loved ones.

The digital only campaign created by FCB India and conceptualized by Tata AIA after collating market intelligence and insights over the years. The pilot was launched online on December 15th and has seen huge traction among target audience with over 11 lakh impressions and 20 lakh views in a short span of time. The film depicts a series of instances where a woman is being assaulted by a stalker in various situations, moving to the woman being trained by the same stalker who turns out to be her husband. The husband demonstrates his unconditional love for his wife by taking her painful punches and blows in order to train her enough so that she is able to protect herself under any circumstances, even if he may not be around. This selfless act of protection by the husband underlines his unconditional love.

“When you love someone unconditionally, you want to protect them for ever. That is the primary intent captured in our ad campaign.  We want consumers to align with the idea of Protection as a selfless act, and how it can potentially keep them safe under any circumstance. This campaign reinforces our commitment to being the pre-eminent Protection provider.  This is in line with our business strategy as we want to bring as many people as possible under protection cover. We partnered with FCB India for this campaign, who have beautifully captured and portrayed the right sentiment via the campaign” said Rishi Srivastava, Senior VP - Proprietary Channels and Marketing Tata AIA Life Insurance

"Working closely with Tata AIA, we challenged the norms of the category and created a campaign that doesn't simply talk about protection but goes deeper, by talking about why we protect our family… Because we love them unconditionally. The idea is that because we 'Love Unconditionally', we want to make sure that our loved ones are protected even when we aren't around. We decided to create film that strays from the conventional expressions of care and protection that are so strongly associated with the category and create a thrilling film about a man who is willing to take a beating so his wife can protect herself even when he isn't around. The whole build-up of the film has a tone of action and suspense with the actors in it carrying out real stunts, using real self-defence techniques. A jingle based on the idea of 'Love Unconditionally' was also created specifically for the campaign. It is what causes the change in tonality in the film, from a thriller to a romance. From what seems like a story of a woman being attacked to one about a woman being trained because she is loved." said Keegan Pinto, Creative Head (West) and National Creative Director - Branded Content, FCB India

Conversations around the financial security and welfare of the family in the absence of an earning member has traditionally been an uncomfortable subject is India. This mind-set has not only been one of the reasons why life insurance is seen as a push product than a pull product in the market, but this sentiment has also been the cornerstone of the marketer’s pitch to get people to buy life insurance products. Through the #LoveUnconditionally campaign, Tata AIA has broken free from the associated sentiments of fear, uncertainty and guilt and showcased the power of true love being the intent behind purchasing a pure protection insurance plan.
