In 2015, the Pepsi brand was associated with old Mauritian traditions and struggled to appeal to all Mauritian cultures. The Brand had no relevant purpose and brand communication strategy. Pepsi Mauritius appointed CIRCUS! to work on a strategy to put Pepsi back on track.
Today, with the race for development and all that looks “modern”, we seem to have lost our Mauritian soul and identity. With this new ad, we wanted to
demonstrate that we can be 100% modern and futuristic while tapping into our cultural heritage.
Pepsi positions itself as a supporter of uniqueness, evolution, trendsetting and local culture. We wanted to give our traditional culture a new strength and
energy by revising and updating it. So, we chose to refresh the Mauritian culture: its music, its dance, its fashion, its art.
We decided to embrace our diversity through Afro-futurism, Indo-futurism, Sino-futurism and Western futurism to create a unique blend: Mauri-Futurism.
The Campaign was a massive success, with a unanimously positive online reaction.
