First up, Rin (or is it Tide? Does not matter)? The ad promotes a product specifically aimed at peele daag or yellow stains. WTF? So the next time I go out to buy a washing soap, I have to remember exactly what kind of stains i have designed on my clothes?
Then there’s the new one for Dove. The lady in the ad applies a regular soap on cheek and Dove on the other. Apparently, her cheek with the ‘other soap’ goes dry while the one with Dove becomes soft. Eh, WTF? Weren’t soaps just supposed to wash your face? Since when did they start cracking your skin?
Now for the best of them all. Complan. Complan peene waale bachche dugni tezi se badhte hain. (Kids drinking Complan grow two times faster). And the ad seeks to prove this by comparing the height change of two kids, yes, just two out of the ‘thousands’. A reminder of the ad for a barnd of salt that showed a girl becoming a Collector simply because her mom used that specific brand of salt. Every time I see that ad I remind my mom that the only reason I am what I am is that I did not eat iodised shudh namak for a major part of my life. Hence she should stop regretting.
