To launch brand’s new product and make it in the most creative and memorable way is Vesna's forte. In this collaboration between Alfa Bank and Vesna Films we had a task to present bank’s new installment card Alfa Black to consumers. The new installment card allows people to purchase goods today and pay evenly throughout next several months — relatively new concept for Kazakhstani consumers. As a way of communication Vesna chose to create a series of 5 short and sweet OLV’s to communicate the message.
While we understood the importance of delivering the content that would be digestible by the local consumer, we didn’t shy away from drawing inspiration from the universal anchors. We aimed to max out on the 80s trend and packaged the videos into an 1980’s game-show with a charismatic host, cute, heart-felt guests and live orchestra. Through the series of peculiar questions and even more ridiculous answers we learn about benefits the product offers. It was important for the agency to present the idea in the most authentic way yet have an eclectically pleasing elements like the live band for the opening and closing shots, warm yellow tone in the set design, as well as the vintage camera look overall.
Also because during the Soviet era media was censored and heavily centralized, our magical realism OLVs give the audience a chance to look at the Kazakh content with the all the beautiful diversity, and Kazakh themes, in the setting it never had a chance to be in.
We work in new realities — low budget, two-week turnaround from start to finish, but lots of masked smiles.
The campaign was launched on Youtube and Instagram as a sponsored ads in March and April 2021, this was the first vertical social media integrated ad campaign for Alfa Bank.
