A new train of thought

New Delhi: A new ad campaign launched by Leo Burnett for Bharat BPO and the Indian Railways has used a humourous everyday situation to try and reach all sectors of the public.

The Creative Director of Leo Burnett, Chraneeta Mann said that they had tried to cut across sectors with humour, adding that radio was a medium that easily lent itself to humour.

Furthermore, the situation depicted in the commercial is one that can be easily identified with.

The commercials may also be seen as an attempt by the Indian Railways to give itself a new public image.
