#VMateAsliHolibaaz, the star-studded Holi campaign by trending short video platform VMate, has concluded on a high note. The campaign that comprised India’s top YouTubers Bhuvan Bam and Ashish Chanchlani, along with dancing diva Sapna Chaudhary, became a sensation on short video as well as social media platforms.

Defying conventions, VMate’s campaign emerged as a platform for its creator to showcase their talent, and simultaneously captured the fancy of viewers on other global platforms such as YouTube or Instagram. #VMateAsliHolibaaz went beyond offering video stickers and roped in celebrated stars in their own domain. The campaign received around 2 billion impressions through different social media platforms and YouTube.

The Holi campaign gifted VMate users a film, wherein India’s top YouTube stars Bhuvan Bam and Ashish Chanchlani acted together for the first time. Three VMate creators also got a chance to act in the film and share the screen with the YouTubers. Bhuvan and Ashish featured in a race to become ‘Asli Holibaaz’, sending their fans into a tizzy. The admirers of the online sensations participated in a contest, casting votes for their favourite. The contest witnessed an overwhelming response with over 5 lakh votes being cast in a neck-and-neck fight, while at least 12 million users logged in to be part of the campaign. Interesting prizes were also in store for the users who participated in the contest through VMate app or browsed through http://bit.ly/3aw3Vx4.

The other highlight of the campaign was a Holi song featuring Sapna Chaudhary of Bigg Boss fame, who added her desi vibes to make the video go viral on social media platforms. As part of #SapnaHoliDance, users with millions of followers performed Sapna’s hook step and posted their videos online.

Excitement ran high for #VMateAsliHolibaaz since inception when the stars converged in Mumbai for the shooting of the videos and interacted with the media. And when Ashish shared the news of working with Bhuvan on Instagram, the likes of famous Bollywood rapper Badshah reacted, lauding the two for their ‘Modi-Trump’ and ‘Karan-Arjun’ moments. What followed was fans going crazy over the first look and trailer of the film, which trended on social media platforms. And then came the perfect Holi gift for VMate users - #VMateAsliHolibaaz, the film.

Talking about the success of the campaign, VMate Associate Director Nisha Pokhriyal said, “#VMateAsliHolibaaz emphasized upon our commitment to provide the best experience to the users of short video platforms. Our campaign touched the pulse of the users and the massive response garnered is a manifestation of the same. Millions of users got engaged with us through the film, music video as well as the contest. There could not have been a better Holi gift for the VMate family.
