“SPACE EXPLORER PROGRAM VIDEOS” | “IF I HAD A SATELLITE”

BYJU’S FutureSchool, the leading interactive online learning platform, today released a new digital spot titled, ‘If I Had a Satellite‘, to inspire budding space explorers and promote its revamped Code A Satellite program. BYJU’S FutureSchool tapped international creative animation/design studio LOBO, to work alongside its in-house creative team to craft a charming ad that captures the essence of a childlike curiosity with the endless possibilities of the universe. 

In the ad, a young girl named Valentina–named for the first woman to go to space, cosmonaut Valentina Vladimirovna Tereshkova–sings a specially-composed song “If I Had A Satellite” while her childhood bedroom falls away and reveals a spectacular moonscape. The Sun, planets and stars become Valentina’s backdrop as she ventures through the cosmos with the help of the friendly satellite Ayana, exploring the Earth and Mars, and even stopping to snap a selfie, demolishing the boredom of stagnant learning along the way. The original song lyrics were written by BYJU’S FutureSchool’s Global Creative Director, Michael Zulawinski, and composed by TikTok lo-fi phenom “Little Monarch” (@littlemonarch).
