McDonald’s is running a campaign that encourages people in India to put down their mobile devices and spend more time with their families and friends – preferably in its restaurants, enjoying its new Sharing Packs.
A film, created by Leo Burnett, features young people who place their smartphones face down and spend more time offline.
The campaign carries the hashtag #KuchPalOffline, which means spend more time offline.
Kedar Teny, director of marketing and digital for McDonald’s West and South India, said: “With internet enabled smart-phones in our hands, it is a fact that most of us are distracted. Our new campaign takes this simple insight and urges people to take a small break from the online world to share happy moments in the real world.”
“Simply put we want to start a conversation and a movement amongst our customers by nudging them to go #KuchPalOffline with a simple act of “flip to share” rather than “click to share”,” he said.
