MSM has also tied up with the top cinema theatres of the country to showcase these advertisements before the movies begin and during intervals. Besides on-air promotions, the brand would leverage social and digital media to create a one-on-one connect with consumers with truly unique and original strategies. The ads on the web play on popular memes and trending online conversations to bring out the message that everyone from a hassled worker to a harrowed housewife needs "Mazey ke Break".

The "Girlfriend" ad is a quirky reminder that it's far better to keep yourself engaged and amused with Sony LIV when looking to pass some time, rather than partaking in futile fun that can make your girlfriend dump you.
