Dentsu Webchutney India celebrates couples who are #FriendsFirst for Platinum Day of Love

Friends first.jpgThis friendship day, Platinum Day of Love launched a new campaign to remind couples that above everything, they are #FriendsFirst. Developed and conceptualized by Dentsu Webchutney India the campaign wants to celebrate that bond between couples whose intimacy is based on long-standing warmth and friendship.

This digital campaign features three short and three long digital videos that throw light on what it means to be #FriendsFirst with your better half. The films are inspired by real-life stories from couples who share moments of honesty, vulnerability, companionship and mutual respect, representing how friendship is an extension of the love you share.

Finding a best friend in your partner is rare, retaining friendship in your relationship even rarer. With this campaign, we aim to encourage couples to remember and aspire to be #FriendsFirst and mark this friendship day as your Platinum Day of Love."
Pravin Sutar, Executive Creative Director, Dentsu Webchutney said, "Friendship should outlast other emotions in a couple's relationship, but more often than not, it takes a backseat. Through #FriendsFirst, we are starting a conversation that highlights the importance of friendship in a relationship through highly relatable and alluring scenarios. We are asking viewers to ponder and eventually revisit this rare bond that once was the initiator of their relationship."

Senior Creative Director of Dentsu Webchutney, Aalap Desai said, "These films are full of reminiscences of incidents that might have happened in your married life. We are establishing how couples should see the bigger picture always. Friendship is the beginning of a relationship and giving it a lesser priority will open a crevice for unfavourable situations. The stories can't be more real as we started the campaign with an interesting UGC leg to it. We asked users to share their friendship stories on our social media channels, handpicked the most poignant ones, and wrote the scripts accordingly."
