Shahrukh Khan 'Magic Of Frooti' Commercial With Kids

To captivate the emotions of the viewer and portray your product through that how you should advertise your product.

Unlike many other advertisements where you have to wait till the final seconds to figure out what product is being advertised, a bottle of Frooti is out there from the opening seconds till the end. The reaction shown by the onlookers really makes me want to buy one of it.

Confession: When I was a kid, I used to dance the "Mango Frooooooti... Fresh and Juuuuuuuicy...." dance in front of the general stores to convince my parents into buying me one.

So, for a perennial Frooti fan, this seemed beautiful. The reactions are genuine, folks. They are. *drools*

And those (real) kids laughing at the boys at the end of the ad, ha ha ha! Cute!

Michael Jordan "Let Your Game Speak" Nike Commercial

Michael Jordan is among the best basketball players ever know, and one of the most famous athletes in the world. He was an unbelievable sportsperson to even the ones who competed him on court.

Michael Jordan was the hero to a generation. And here he is, to inspire another generation.
With Nike.

The ad almost perfectly captures MJ's focus, defense, and offense, and re-creates some those insanely many famous plays he has had through his famed career.

You only need a spark to light a fire. Jordan has been a spark to many.

Advertisements Going South?

Quite a lot of recent advertisements have been based around a South Indian character.
I feel more and more South Indian characters started featuring in North Indian films and advertisements after that phase in Indian cinema that saw Quick Gun Murugan, and to a smaller extent, Om Shanti Om.

Here are a few advertisements, South(Indian)ernized:-

1. The good ol' Center Fresh Ad

2. Voltas AC

3. Mahindra Duro DZ

4. Ebay

Is this a trend?

Also, people get very disappointed when I don't talk in a South Indian accent while talking in English or Hindi. I've at times had people requesting me to talk with a South Indian accent.

Romba Nalla.

2011's Best Indian Advertisement - Coca Cola.

This morning, just as I was about to leave the breakfast table and leave for office, I got to see, what seems to me, the best advertisement of this year 2011 (in India).

We are prude. It is humane to be prude. We are over-ly concerned and worried about what and what-nots, that we forget all the goodness that surrounds us.

So, for a few moments, forget all your pains and worries, watch this advertisement

Now, a smile on your face for the rest of your life, knowing that there is too much good to go around the world for the evil to overshadow.

Wish you all a Very Happy New Year. May all the years ahead bring more smiles to your faces, and happiness to your hearts.
