Whosoever you are, if you cant appreciate art atleast respect it. Your comment is baseless. Am in no way attached to the creators and this is really brilliant stuff. Can you qualify your claims on why this is crap? Got the balls do it?

Killer art! very nice way of using the superstition thing/"ward off evil" eye thing which is seen on indian trucks and that too on a daily basis.

I like the art. But if people are already a danger to the road because they can't "see" how is putting an ad, behind a car, on the road, make it any safer?

The concept is misleading. ‘Buri Nazar' doesn't mean bad eye sight. It means 'Evil Sight'.
The campaign is a desperate creative.Another example of 'Patli Gali ' Advertising !

Prabhakar a funny take on the usual is all about eye catchy advertising. Thats coming from a common man like me...

Ofcourse the creators would know the meaning of the original expression. The idea is to tilt the same and create humor yet make you think....

In my opinion this is really good, fresh and unique...

Yes I wear spectacles and I understand that 'Buri Nazar Waale' is actually for people with Evil eye and bad eye sight is a different thing altogether but still.... this one brought a smile on my face. Dunno if it will make me go for Titan Eye Plus but it would certainly make me appreciate them for being a good client to acccept such ideas.. Lovely illustration and of course the copy had to be spot-on with Piyush Pandey as the copywriter... Nice work O&M Bangalore!

Amateur for life!

Firstly brilliant art direction. Secondly hahahaha I've once driven on the highway without my powered glasses and yeah I definitely don't recommend it. Very effective way of putting it across as anyone who has driven in India will not forget this art behind every truck saying 'people with bad intentions (eyesight) will have their face blackened' :-). Nice twist by saying 'people with bad eyesight need glasses'. Again great art.

the truck number plate shows it belongs to Karnatka, an Indian state where most people don't know how to read hindi, so how can this ad be effective in Karnatka?

i guess i just don't get why people who worked on this account comment on it. isn't the purpose of posting here to get objective feedback?

Great work. Makes you smile, laugh rather. I guess it's national campaign so Hindi is the obvious choice of language. Yes, there will be jealous insecure lunatics talking about research.Its cool. Smart critiques. Stupid Creates.

the illustration represents bhuri nazar across languages.... n being a cost effective medium is the best part !! n being it interesting enough to read carefully is the icing on the cake ... as a person who needs glasses to read, i keep testing my self every possible thing i see ( like number plates and car stickers
)...think its bang there as well !!

well i like d concept..its fresh..innovative...but am really not sure if it is an effective communication for people to go to Titan eye stores...wat i am confused abt is...if someone is able to read dat font i m sure as hell he cant miss anything on the road too...

The idea is quite unique and neatly rendered. Am sure this is a place that anybody would look irrespective of class of creed because of its lucrative color schemes. the message gets delivered in tandem as the attention is rapt with the art.

All in all this is a wonderful campaign and am sure this will break the monotony of outdoor ads :)

Kudos to the team which did such a fantabuluos job.... Keep at it folks!!!
