I'm sort of an advertising fan. Somehow, I always liked advertising, and I have a lot of sentimental value for old ads, and some good new ads. Older ads somehow seemed more genuine, and were definitely simpler.

And now this:
The Cadbury's one is really touching. The jingle is sweet, the music is simple, yet brilliant and Shankar Mahadevan is just magical. I get goosebumps every time I watch the ad on YouTube. Ogilvy somehow manages to touch the nerves of Indians on a regular basis (they're the guys responsible for Fevicol, Vodafone and the awesomely funny Bingo ads).
Dish TV? Not so much. Masquerading as a medium to get an adopted girl to cope with the sudden change in her life, is a bit of a stretch. Call me cynical, but somehow it just doesn't fit.
Random post is over.
PS: How many of you recognised the girl in the bus from the Cadbury's ad?
