So, the other day, I was watching tv and there were FOUR advertisements back-to-back which literally blew my mind away (in a bad way)! Now, I am not a person who usually criticizes things that I do not watch and other people like, I mean if there really is an argument, I would say why I don’t like xyz show but I usually don’t say xyz sucks. I am a very firm believer of ‘to each his own’. (I know this is not a serious topic, but what the heck! 😛 I wanted to write all this :D).
Anyway, coming back to the point. These ads were extremely senseless and the ideas presented were totally baseless and senseless. I can vouch that there wouldn’t be a single soul who would say that any of these ads had a point. I am really, really regretting not writing this post earlier as I have forgotten 3 out of those 4 ads. I totally remember the last one and the most stupid of the lot. It was about this girl everyone around whom brags about being her best friend and kind of competes to prove how they are closer to the said girl as compared to other people. Why? Well, because the said woman uses a certain hair oil, which makes her look stylish and that is why everyone would want to be her best friend. I don’t remember which brand it was, probably parachute (but I am not sure, I said ‘probably’ and therefore, nobody will sue me). And who the hell in their creative team thought that people would buy this idea of theirs? Oh, and, this is just one of those ads. phew!!
Note: If you want to kill yourself at this point because of the sheer stupidity of this ad or most ads these days, please don’t. There are still things to cherish in this world. I’ll post about one of them tomorrow maybe? 😉
