A strong start for the Arabic Super Bowl season, even though Orange Egypt advert wasn’t a star-studded ad like the last year’s Ramadan ad (جاري_يا_جاري), but it touched our hearts.
Orange creates a simple ad to convey its subtle meaningful message by casting the delicate Nancy Ajram and the humorous, charismatic Tamer Hosny.
There is a new noticeable direction in the telecommunication adverts this season. The switch from family oriented ads to a wider audience of kind human interaction’ direction.
Simplicity is the keyword of Orange Ramadan Advert. Simple celebrities, interactions, setting and the catchy song is just a bonus.
The advert is 2nd on trending with 495K views on YouTube and Facebook has been watched 1.5M times.
Orange Egypt is going back to the root of Egyptian kindness:
Egyptians are well-known for many great qualities which Orange Egypt highlighted in their new Ramadan advert like, helping strangers, supporting friends, generosity and a simple phone call reminding the close people to you that they are on your mind, these are just some great qualities that restore the faith in humanity.
The surprising appearance of Tamer Hosny’s co-star “Mostafa Hareedy” was such a nostalgic moment. He acted side by side Tamer Hosny in Omar and Salma movie back in 2007.
A strong start for the Arabic Super Bowl season, even though Orange Egypt advert wasn’t a star-studded ad like the last year’s ramadan ad (جاري_يا_جاري), but it touched our hearts.
However, aside from the catchy song, the brand’s message is not clear, simple actions go a long way, but how does that relate to the consumer? We didn’t realize it was an Orange advert until the part in the song that say “your call goes a long way”.
