Dramatising data as the modern day oxygen of life
The graphic presented in the Glo television commercial enacted by Lagbaja and his band boys takes TV commercial to another level.
Lagbaja, who was about to travel out of the country at the International Airport was asked to verify his claim by playing a tune by the Immigration Officer checking his passport who asked, “How do I know you are not an impostor? Oya play me something?”
Lagbaja informed the Officer that members of his band were scattered all over the world but declared that the issue was not a problem as long as Glo 4G phones were available. He asked “who’s on Glo here?”
He got a couple of Glo smart phones and linked his band members namely the drummer, Dele in Asaba, Lekan, his gangan player in Calabar, Jide, his guitarist in Lagos, Ahmed, his keyboardist in London and Uzor, his konga drummer in Abakaliki. They played a beautiful instrumental version that viewers all over the world are excitedly gushing over.
A creative drama, so to say. This is a pointer to the importance of data to all the networks. ‘Data is oxygen’ is the novel pay-off line adopted by Globacom to aptly capture the very essence of data in today’s life.
