Max Protein Launches ‘Protein Police’ Campaign featuring Kartik Aaryan to promote Protein Snacking Without Cheating
Jaipur, April 2023.
Leading protein-snacking brand, Max Protein unveils its new TVC campaign, ‘Protein Police’ featuring their brand ambassador, Bollywood Superstar Kartik Aaryan. The campaign aims at promoting protein snacking as a healthy lifestyle choice that doesn’t require compromising on taste or convenience. Through this campaign, Max Protein is redefining the concept of snacking by encouraging consumers to make healthier snacking choices and spreading awareness about the brand’s protein-rich snack products.
The concept of “Protein Snacking Matlab No Cheating” emphasizes on the fact that there’s no need to cheat on your health goals as Max Protein’s products are not only high in protein but also delicious and satisfying. The use of the word ‘cheating’ implies that snacking options may not be as healthy and can be seen as indulgences, whereas protein snacks provide a better alternative. The campaign’s creative concept uses humour and relatable situations to engage with the audience and highlight the importance of choosing healthier snacking options. Kartik Aaryan’s quirky, humorous persona, popularity and relatability with the masses make him the perfect fit to resonate Max Protein’s messaging with their audience.
This campaign targets a younger demographic, including millennials and Gen Z, to create a behavioural change in their snacking choices by steering them towards a high-protein snack option that is also convenient and tasty. Max Protein wants to bring about a lifestyle revolution by inspiring and encouraging people to make protein snacking a part of their daily routine and take a step towards a healthier, more fulfilling life.
