Nick always believes in giving kids what they want. In a recent survey conducted by Nick across 15 cities in India where 2300 kids were surveyed, it was revealed that 31% wanted to be famous on TV rather than have good looks or travel abroad! Therefore Nick’s ‘Toon Jockey’ reinforces the results of the survey by making their wish come true.
Says Nina Elavia Jaipuria, Senior Vice President & General Manager, Nick India “Nick has a deep insight into what makes kids tick and we always look for new and innovative ways to connect with them. Toon Jockey is yet another novel endeavour that will help kids fulfil their wish this festive season. We hope that kids can truly live out their dream by being Nick TJ’s”.
Says Bani, MTV VJ and an ex-roadie “It sounds like an amazing platform for kids as they will be able to learn and see what it takes to be a proper Jockey. It will be great way to groom our country’s future Jockeys.”
Nick will support Toon Jockey with a robust 360 degree marketing campaign through cinema tie-ups, out-of-home advertising, high outdoor visibility and massive van activation in key markets. The campaign will reach out to kids all over the country spanning 40 cities in India and will cover metros such as Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata, Bangalore as well as other small cities in Maharashtra, UP, MP and PHCHP markets.
In addition, Nick will also interact with kids through yet other touch point across 7 cities at Westside Stores. Nicktoons – Spongebob Squarepants, Dora, Perman and Ninja will tour across Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkota, Lucknow, Jaipur, Indore and Bangalore to meet and give them tips on being a TJ.
