Bira 91 Completes 7 Years
Seven years ago, Bira 91 was conceptualised in an effort to pioneer the craft beer experience in India but today stands as one of India’s most iconic youth culture brands. A brand known for reimagining beers as we know it, celebrated its 7-year milestone on Sunday, 27th February, by reinventing the classic ‘Happy Birthday Song’ in the form of an unconventional music video.
In an endeavour to take the beer community by storm, Bira 91 has added a beer-full twist to the traditional birthday track sung by millions across the globe. While the tune of the chorus remains the same, the lyrics of the soundtrack have been replaced with sounds created by the brand’s beer bottles, cans, and other offerings, giving the song a fresh and funky vibe, in true Bira 91 style.
As a brand that has been ‘born and brewed’ in India, Bira 91 has always been supportive of budding Indian talent by providing them with opportunities to showcase themselves on a global platform. In accordance with this, it brought onboard two young and talented content creators, Anshuman Sharma (producer) and Kamakshi Khanna (singer) to bring this idea to life.
On this partnership with Bira 91 and release of the music video, music producer Anshuman Sharma said, “Bira 91 is one of my favourite brands and we wanted the birthday wish for them to be creative and truly unique! The music has been created with it’s bottles and cans and I am very excited to see the reaction of the brand’s lovers across the country.”
Singer Kamakshi Khanna said, “Bira 91’s Birthday wish, was such an exciting project to be a part of! The concept of creating music using it’s bottles and cans itself is so playful and innovative that as an artist, I knew this would be super fun to be a part of. Had an amazing time giving my voice to the new-age birthday wish.”
