Abstract

In January 2016, the 113-year-old tea brand Brooke Bond Red Label (Red Label), a sub-brand of Hindustan Unilever Limited, created a groundbreaking advertising campaign that launched India's first transgender pop band, 6 Pack Band. The campaign comprised six videos, which reached over 25 million people in a short span of time and won numerous awards. By mid-2016, Red Label's 6 Pack Band was clearly hitting the right notes with its target audience, but questions began to be raised about the future of the campaign. What should Red Label do next? Should it create more content around 6 Pack Band or abandon it altogether? Should it seek out other relevant and thought-provoking social issues for advertising purposes? If so, which issues should it address, and how?
