Cholo Bangladesh


Cricket unites Bangladesh – a nation of diverse people. Grameenphone, the leading Bangladeshi TELCO decided to unite the entire nation under one single platform. Magnito Digital was responsible for inspiring the online audience and connecting them with the Cholo Bangladesh campaign.


The strategy was to ensure that our cricket loving population could directly connect with each other and come together in their shared passion for cricket.


Adapting Grameenphone’s massive offline campaign of Cholo Bangladesh, we amplified the concept of #cholobangladesh on the digital media through a crowd-sourced expression platform. This campaign was a pioneer as we moved away from traditional FB application based campaigns and initiated the campaign through a consecutive mobile optimized microsite.


1. We conceptualized and developed a world class campaign microsite ( which enabled the visitor to perform four actions-
• Generate own jersey with name and preferred number
• Inspire the national team with their tweets
• Submit their own version of the Cholo Bangladesh song
• Capture augmented reality with an Action Cam.

2. We came up with 10 pre-match analysis including prediction videos featuring the most famous Bangladeshi commentator Chowdhury Jafrullah Sharafat.

3. This was the first official Twitter affiliated campaign in Bangladesh where Twitter USA supported us with various APIs. By using their given API, we made a tweet calculator application which was within the Cholo Bangladesh site.

4. Later, we did a massive event named Fanush Utsab at a popular field of Dhaka where we flew hundred of tweets of fans in the sky.

5. We played a major role in the massive scale event ‘Fan Day’ held in the Mirpur Indoor Stadium. We made an Augmented Reality booth where fans could take pictures with augmented versions of featured cricketers’.

6. We came up with ‘Sing Cholo Bangladesh’ booth at the event as well. Apart from that, there was a digital crowd-sourced video campaign of the main theme song ‘Cholo Bangladesh’. Our TG was asked to upload their version of the theme song ‘Cholo Bangladesh’ & share it on Facebook with the #CholoBangladesh.
