Our latest campaign, ‘Perform Big, Silently’, takes another leap towards our efforts to recognize the success of Indian women. Striving silently in their respective fields they have made our nation proud and our campaign lauds their accomplishments. Similarly, our new range of washing machines champions performance in the background without making any noise. Haier salutes the spirit and achievements of these performers who made it big without making noise.”
Storyboard: The new campaign reflects how the brand mirrors its values and convictions with the real silent performers of India who are not swayed by camera flashes, red carpets, and are focused to ‘Perform Big, Silently’. The TVCs give center stage to women achievers and highlight how they have pushed boundaries to bring pride to India on international platform. Their commitment and hard work coincide with Haier's philosophy of ‘Inspired Living’. Through their riveting stories, these women continue to lead by example, inspiring several women to break barriers and question the status quo to emerge victorious in their respective fields.

Talking about the new TVC, Mr. Raj Kamble, Founder & CCO, Famous Innovation said, “The consumer durables category is cluttered with celebrity-driven communication, relying on Bollywood and Cricket’s fame to sell products. However, we believe that the Indian consumer has been ready to move forward with new idols - people who perform big, silently. That’s why we are celebrating personalities from various fields like mountain climbing, combat training, chess, and downhill mountain biking. Haier has stood behind these silent performers consistently. Their spirit is perfectly exemplified in Haier's new washing machines that deliver the best performance without making any noise.”
This is the second series of TVCs launched by Haier under the larger campaign theme of ‘Silent Performers’, first introduced by the brand in 2019 with India's ace sportswomen - Dipa Karmakar, Hima Das, and Simranjit Kaur. The campaign showcases the consistent effort of Haier to give the spotlight to women achievers who have pushed boundaries in the pursuit of their passion, going against all odds to let their success speak for itself. Through this theme of 'Perform big, Silently', Haier highlights its latest Super Drum Series of Front Load Fully Automatic Washing Machines which feature one of the biggest drums in India. Designed to function super silently, the new washing machines come equipped with innovative features such as AI-DBT (Dynamic Balance Technology), PuriSteam®, and Anti Bacterial Technology® that result in a superior laundry experience.
