Catch Hing plays to the 'tadka' tune in new TVC
mxmindia.com, February 04, 2016

Catch has unveiled a new TVC for Catch Hing. India has a long tradition of using Hing (asafetida) and is used widely in cooking, be it as a flavor enhancer, pickles or tempering.

The new Catch Hing TVC is play on the very word 'tadka' giving it a humorous twist, a touch of wit with an amusing story of how a small incident gets tadka at every point and grows out of proportion when it travels from one mouth to another, much like the oft played 'Chinese Whispers.' A harmless incident takes a hilarious turn by the time it reaches its conclusion with people often 'spicing' up things, while repeating them. The new Catch Hing Ka Tadka TVC captures this element of human behavior with the tagline – 'Ab India Lagaye Catch Hing Ka Tadka.'

Commenting on this occasion, OP Khanduja, Associate Business Head, DS Spiceco Pvt. Ltd said, "The Catch Brand is an established household name and with Catch Hing we are now offering the best quality Hing to give a flavorsome tadka to food. We hope to make a real impact through humour and irreverence and catch the imagination of the Indian public through a TVC that falls in the genre of a light-hearted comedy and aims to extract humour and laughter from everyday incidents in our lives."

Rahul Jauhari, Group Chief Creative Officer, Everest Brand Solutions added, "Advertising needs to be as entertaining as it needs to be convincing. So we used a potent combination of both to drive home the superiority and scale of Catch Hing. The brand has been consistent on its communication path and has gone from strength to strength every year. We hope to see these campaigns do the good job the previous ones have done."
