Ola has reaffirmed its commitment to prevent drunk driving with the launch of the 2018 edition of its flagship #PeekeMatChala campaign. For the third consecutive year, after the initiative was first launched in 2016, this year the brand took the musical route through the launch of a party rap.

The platform has collaborated with Prabh Deep, an upcoming 23-year old Indian rapper known for his socially conscious rhymes, to create a rap song that aims at deterring people from drinking and driving.

Continuing the fun approach to addressing the issue, set in an Ola cab, the video showcases the different antics people indulge in when drunk, with the lyrics communicating the key message.

Drawing on the success of previous editions of #PeekeMatChala, this video takes the same witty, creative and light-hearted approach to drive home the message of responsible drinking.

Speaking on the initiative, Pallav Singh, Senior Vice-President, Ola, said, “The holiday season is a time for fun and frolic, and hence we chose music as a medium to communicate the message of don’t drink and drive. With a catchy tune and easy to sing-along lyrics, party goers will be able to echo the thought of not driving under the influence of alcohol and take an Ola instead.”

Over the years, Ola has partnered with local authorities, industry bodies, bars, restaurants and influencers to discourage driving under the influence of alcohol.

Previous editions of #PeekeMatChala saw online and offline initiatives being launched that promote responsible drinking, which include setting up designated kiosks to facilitate bookings, sharing responsible drinking tips with consumers and launching engaging videos.
