ZEE5 Global
ZEE5 Global - Rashmi Rocket

what ZEE5 Global wanted

  • leverage branding solutions on mobile to create awareness about the archaic gender test that female athletes were subjected to, in an innovative manner

  • expand its reach in USA, Canada, and Australia

branding solution offered by mCanvas

tech used
live poll + counteraccelerometer & gyroscope motion sensors

how the campaign was executed

  • integrating a live poll and counter within the ad to gauge users’ awareness of the archaic gender test

  • running the ad on tier 1 mobile websites to ensure the brand reached the target market optimally

  • deploying the accelerometer and gyroscope motion sensors to enable users to physically walk in the footsteps of the protagonist


  • the ad first showed users the number of people who have faced discrimination through a live counter on the screen.

  • they were then asked to vote whether they have faced discrimination with ‘Yes’ or ‘No’; the results were displayed in real time.

  • the ad encouraged users to walk in the protagonist’s (Rashmi) shoes by physically taking a few steps forward to understand the ordeals she faced, to achieve her dreams; this was powered by the accelerometer and gyroscope motion sensors.

  • the closing screen displayed the movie trailer, and the CTA ‘Subscribe Now’ which directed users to the landing page to start their subscription.
