Advertisements – The Good Bad And the Ugly

Advertisements or commercials are normally the things which we love to hate. Because they pop up unannounced when we are immersed into the TV watching a high intensity match or a climax of a movie. Most of us use it as the time to skip through channels to find anything interesting is being shown in other channels. But there are some ads which are either made so cleverly or so dumb, that we cant get it off our mind. In this post I will list down some of those ads which fall in that category. 

If you are from the 90’s you would remember this ad which is shown repeatedly in Doordarshan every five minutes when there is a break. Even though its made decently to convey the message, the jingle at the end “Vajrudanti vajrudanti vicco vajrudanti vicco powder vicco paste …” keeps ringing in your head and repeated hearing may even lead to insomnia 😛 ! I don’t know why even today they use this same jingle in their commercials 🙁

Well as I spoke about Jingle, there is one which became so close to heart and finally a ringtone for millions of Indians. Its none other than the Airtel Ad featuring Music maestro AR RAHMAN. The Music was godesque and so soothing to hear.

There are some wonderful commercials which shows the world, how advanced we have become in technology and other areas.  This ad from Hyundai creating and delivering Message to space is surely an achievement, we can be proud of !!

As humans we always look for inspiration to motivate us. And there are some commercials which within their limited 1 or 2 minutes time, touch our deepest part of the heart and leave us inspiring !

Below are few of those inspirational ads !!

Well when you think of corporates and conglomerates there are always rivals and competitors. And some of them come up with brilliant and funny ads to showcase their brand has more value than its rivals.

We all know how big the rivalry is with Samsung and Apple. And when Samsung started to mock Apple and its fan boys in its commercial it became a huge hit and soon other mobile manufacturers followed it up with similar tactics.
