Influencer’s post:

Dilen Gandhi, Senior Director and Category Head, Foods, PepsiCo India, said, “#BlameItOnCrunch is a simple idea that reflects the product proposition of Doritos in the brand’s own style and humour. The intense flavour and tooth-rattling crunch resonated seamlessly with the Doritians who shared their moments of disruption caused by the power of a Doritos crunch. Consumers appreciated the campaign as more than 95% influencers have posted organically, showcasing various creative renditions and having fun while doing so.”

Commenting on the partnership, Samir Sethi, Head of Brand Marketing, Policybazaar, said, “It was a great experience collaborating with PepsiCo on the campaign. We hope to collaborate with them in the future as well, to increase the awareness of Health Insurance and Term Life Insurance in India, and to engage consumers.”

Amandeep Singh, Business Director, VMLY&R, said, “VMLY&R is a huge believer in the KISS principle — keep it simple and silly. We wanted to establish the bold tonality that Doritos carries internationally with its crunch in the Indian market as well, so our creatives took the simplest route possible— every distortion you see around yourself is the crunch effect, so simply #BlameItOnCrunch.”
