One such recent campaign was TUC Tizer Double Decker Bus. I came across it near Boat Basin food street area. It caught my attention when a girl dressed up in very attractive chef attire approached me and invited me to visit the bus roof top. As I went near the bus I saw a group of boys and girls wearing same chef attire. They were preparing and serving snacks made out of TUC biscuits with different toppings, the combination of which they called TUCTIZER. The term was pretty new to me but any how out of the topping choices given to me, I preferred to have TUC with salsa and pepperoni while my mother went for TUC with cheese and green olive. The taste was really great and I think we all can easily prepare it at home to tackle our sudden hunger pangs at odd times.
Anyhow I had the TUCTIZER snack at the roof top of the double decker bus and clicked a few selfies as I’m an all time selfie freak. I must say, the live music was being played by the violin players on the spot was really amusing and it was the best addition to the overall ambiance. I’m hoping to see more such BTL activities by other brands in future that provide and ultimate enjoyable experience to the consumers.
