[Tit-Bits]~A Tension, Stand a Tease!!! ;)

18 Apr

When selling a product is the actual motive, the selling methodology applied should be simple if not sophisticated. Advertising is an art and it is not to be taken lightly. I repeat, it is definitely not to be taken lightly. While the creative advertisements attract the customers and make them talk about that product, there are also the a few other dumb kinds of advertisements/print-ads that catch one’s attention thereby spread by word of mouth!

The “typos” – the unintended mistakes – as they are called, tend to stand on a thin-n-fine line. While they are best to be avoided, they can sometimes be very hilarious and hence attract attention. As they say in terms of publicity – Positive or negative, attention gained is attention garnered.

When the Indian Cricket Team captain suddenly announced that he’s going to marry Sakhshi Rawat, many typo-minded people read the name as Rakhi Sawant. Back then, the reality show fans were so obsessed with Rakhi Sawant, that they saw her everywhere and in everything. Also a Rakhi fan got pi$$ed off when he read somewhere that Sylvester Stallone is planning to do Rocky-IV. Wonder what the typo-minded fellow read. 😉

Gaining public attention has been an old game in our country where we’ve over a billion mindsets to manipulate and play with. Be it the Elections, Cricket, Bollywood or even the lame publicity seeking individuals – they have it in them to stand for themselves and demand public attention. Bollywood (and regionally, the Kolly-Tolly-Molly-woods) seems to be the common thing in all these stunts. Unlike Hollywood, Bollywood thankfully doesn’t make movies pairing 80 year old actors and 60 year old actresses. Else before every movie releases, we would be hearing about the affairs of the antiques – you never know!! 😀

Now before the World Cup Cricket 2011 began, if I had asked “Do you know Poonam Pandey?” almost all of us would have gone ‘Poonam who?’ 🙄 but then just a month later, Indians (especially the men in blue, red, yellow, green and all other colors) were rooting for India to win the World Cup, no not for Sachin but for Poonam!!!!

Creativity always finds a way to the top…look at how Nike (with their bleed blue campaign) and Pepsi (with Innovative shots campaign) emerged victorious in the advertisement arena minting a great deal of moolah over a period of 3 months!

What comes in your mind when I say “Cheerleaders”? Even a momma’s boy would think of scantily clad women (or men, if he ‘happier’ than other guys) hopping around! But then at the on-going IPL, I heard there were SAREE-clad cheerleaders!! Innovation always rocks…so what next? With a veil on?!!!!

Anyways, too much of blabbering is too bad…I wrote this much to just showcase this advertisement –

Would you be ready to buy a flat which has Touble, Trible and maybe Trouble? 😛
