It showcases a festive environment where a family is seen to enjoy being together. There is food and lights and obviously a large jug of Tang to make the celebrations more special.

Amit Shah, Associate director, marketing,said,

“With this campaign, we have tried to explore synergies between the festivities of Eid that resonates well with Tang’s brand proposition of bringing families together. Tang due to its ease of preparation and energizing fruity taste serves as an ideal beverage after a daylong fast.”
