My all time favourite advert!



Have u guys seen the new Surf Excel advert? Its an amazingly cute advert! This is my all time best advert! It just reminds me of the bond I used to share with my sister when we were kids..

In this advert, the brother and sister walk along a muddy road, and the sister accidently falls into the muddy puddle of rain water and starts crying..the brother seeing this..gets wild..and jumps into the puddle and starts throwing punches asking the puddle to say "sorry" :), while the sister says "adi anna, nalla adi"..then she feels happy that her brother has bashed the puddle up, and starts smiling..the brother seeing this is very happy and walks along with his sister with a triumphant smile on his face :)..This advert is so heart touching..so cute..The kids are so cute and the brother reminds me a lot in appearance :)

Reminds me of those days when I used to steal money from my aunty's purse, buy frooties for me and my sister and then get caught while giving the other frooti to my sister! Gone are those days :(...

I have uploaded this advert (the hindi version) for those who havent seen it :)..

You just need to click the link, the click the free button (scroll down then click) - then u will get the link. Its under 6MB, but worth the download! Just amazing :) - I was searching for this advert for almost a month and finally got it!

@arjuna: It is a very sweet ad. And the children act so so so very well, I think they had forgotten that it was a shooting for an ad and truly started living the brief for the ad!

But, personally for me (don't feel too bad about my opinion), I dont like it much - because I think that it is too too cute and sweet. I can only think of how Hindustan Lever Limited has once again made a clever ad which would appeal to all the consumers and would rake in the money for the company.

I find their expenditure on ads is exorbitant as compared to the quality of their products.

SORRY. I am speaking like a cynic and spoiling the tone of your post.

Cute ad. But I dont like it - I see it all mixed up with a thousand ideal and a million tonnes of cynicism!

it was sooo sweet.. Of late, I found Indian ads too loud and jarring.. this one is damn good.. Like turning on to a melody after listening to fast eardrum-tearing beats..

Arjunaji
this adji is cuteji but I like the one in which a baby boy tries to walk and his mom gets really happy about his first steps..
also the Rmkv ads with the Snow White PattuPaavadai has a really sweet child

however I cast my lot with Parvatiji in looking beyond this manufactured cuteness (children are always cute but the motive behind these sweet ads is purely commercial)
SARVAM SRIKRISHNAARPANAMASTHU!

!!!anand: My saviour! in a world where I was all alone! I was even seriously thinking of rendering an apology for my irritating comment or better still, of deleting it.

But now, I am feeling a little bolder and have decided to ride the tide...

PArvati - I dont buy ur argument :))..I really dont mind what their objective is..since I rarely dont see what the product is..I am just seeing their creative side..

Their creativity was so cute and too good - so in the end that's what matters to me :)
