Not often does an FM station RJ announce during his show, “Don’t go anywhere during the break, a jingle is coming up!”
That’s exactly what has happened with Bisk Farm’s new radio jingle conceived and executed by SoS Ideas, a Kolkata-based agency. The agency managed to rope in an unlikely choice for a singer as far as advertising songs are concerned, legendary Bengali artiste Kabir Suman, who recorded a commercial after almost two decades. The jingle is for Bisk Farm’s Just Ginger Biscuits, and the words, music and above all, the voice, brought in the warmth (of ginger) straight into the homes of Bengal. The jingle is a big hit on radio, with people flooding social media with likes, shares and comments. Although not meant to be an online release, a video of it is going viral on the web.
