The advertisements being broadcasted on the Idiot Box these days make you bang your head on the TV until you become senseless enough to appreciate those stupid ads or until the ad disappears from the screen, which makes me wonder what happened to all the creative ad film makers which used to give us so many good ads in the past which have just disappeared. So i sat to compile the list of a few of my favourite ads which were ever telecasted on TV.
This list is by no means exhaustive because first of all this is a list of an individual and second, this is a list of a person, who had a night out today morning and then attended a few classes and then slept from 2:30 pm to 11:30 pm, so you can understand that my mental state is not the best now.. but i will try.
1) Fevicol Series :- There have been many ads in the series and each an example of innovation which has been rarely surpassed by others in the ad industry.
2) Dairy Milk :- The ad bein aired these days featuring Amitabh Bachhan looks shit to me but there have been good ads by Dairy Milk in the past, one of which featured a catchy song which ran in background whose wordings were ” Main Khush hun aaj khamakhaw…”
But the ad which i like the most is one in which a girl came dancing on the ground in a cricket match.. It is just a memory in my mind
3) Raymond :- There have been 3 ads by these guys which i can remember to be good.. Last spot i would keep the ad which featured quite a few cute pups along with a man dressed in Raymonds sutings. The remaining two ads which were a sequence, one featuring a class bidding a final goodbye to a teacher who taught them and the second part which came many years after the first one and which showed a few seconds of the first one in flashback,shws those young children all grown up and become “Complete Man” themselves, they see their teacher and the warmth shown by them wins you..
4) Nescafe :- Even if the ad was not good sometimes the music was there to captivate your heart and your fantasies, such a good song… The only ad song which i can hum any time “Taste that gets you started up..
Taste that gets you going..
5) Bajaj Boxer :- There was the ad of Bajaj Boxer which used to be telecast when the bike was launched for the first time tagging it as ” Unshakeable” which showed a guy going to meet his girlfriend after coming back from a war but reaching her house to find that she is married and has a child now :(… Thats what i can remember of it…
These are the only ones which are coming to my mind right now,so pardon me if i missed out a few good ones and comment telling about the ad, i will include it in the list if i also liked it.. I know there are many which i just cant remember at this moment, but what to do, i am a human after all.
Song Of The Day:- There’s A Place by Beatles from Please Please Me
Starting of this song is just something out of this world. Listen to the song for my sake if you haven’t…
There is no end to the musical genius of these guys, this is just so good.. Wish they were still here, making more music enthralling us even more
