Charged by Thums Up has partnered with Rusk Media and Amazon miniTV as the co-presenting partner for Playground Season 2. With this development, Charged by Thums Up is the latest presenting sponsor for this immensely popular show in addition to iQOO smartphones.

Moreover, the special sponsors for this season include Boat, LG, Virgio, DrLuxur, Ajio, and Rumble.

Charged by Thums Up is an extension of the USD 1 billion Thums Up brand’s unique strong taste with even more thunder. Its flavour ‘Berry Bolt‘ offers a unique taste of berries, along with an electrifying fizzy ‘zing‘ and 2x the caffeine ‘kick‘. Charged by Thums Up is India’s newest electrifying beverage that caters to the ambitious, audacious and authentic consumers of today. Likewise, Rusk Media’s Playground – India’s first-ever gaming reality show – is also immensely popular with the Gen Z crowd across India. Given the aligning target audience of both brands, this partnership will allow Charged by Thums Up to showcase its commitment towards the supercharged youth of today as they live their lives to the fullest. The partnership will include a range of activations designed to bring Charged by Thums Up to life for Gen Z audiences by showcasing the brand’s commitment towards the young, cool and energetic youth.
