Two Commercials during IPL 2020
Aamir Khan will be seen in two commercials during the IPL 2020 to promote a new range of premium tyres from CEAT. The first of these CEAT’s SecuraDrive tyres campaigns, which will be aired at the start of the IPL and which will be across various media platforms both online and off line, is themed ‘don’t be a dummy’.
It emphasizes the use of high quality tyres for better safety in all weather and driving conditions. The commercials are shot without the use of crowds, taking into considering the current COVID-19 pandemic situation in the country. Update – Below is the new TVC from CEAT Tyres, which shows Aamir Khan as a dummy, driving a Kia Seltos.
The commercial is created by O&M and the storyline is set in an advanced tyre testing facility with test dummies used for testing. Aamir Khan’s role in the commercial is that of a dummy. He comes to life when no one is looking and manipulates situations to save himself from the dangers of tyre testing. The aim of this TVC is to show how CEAT SecuraDrive tyres offer utmost safety under varied driving conditions and even at high speed and precise braking.
