Understand someone I can do two really mediocre ads ... But do 6 or 7 ads of this should be a crime.

Ah! Are those poor guys who believes that the rewards are more than a hoax embarrassing for rewarding the egos of these big guys always idiots (like me).
In a few years reality will reveal you the truth. Do not worry.

This campaign has been made to spot, print and ambient to 3000 different brands.
So shut up and get to work.

Why does not prohibit the authors discuss the campaigns?
It is sad to see them defend themselves like cats belly up.
This campaign is pathetic, I don´t need to win a Cannes Lion for viewing.
A little more originality and less copying and mourn commenting here.

Because in India, we are fair-obsessed people.

If this a series for India why is everyone so white then? or was it done for some overseas clients?
BUT if this was meant for India what does it say...were ashamed of using brown people in our advert or maybe we just wanna used some white people to make it look more international because brown looking isnt international enough or worst maybe if its meant for indian market where as everyone knows to be pretty and be in adverts you have to be white.
Come someone from there please explain
thanks

Next time to do something specific to India do like Danny Boyle the englishman who came to teach you and your bollywood that beauty is in the slums and even use local brown people even if it isnt meant for Indian market.
Be proud of who you are or who you look like or maybe... just be plain stupid like you seem with this series .

im a pakistani livin in india, and i think that india is so fcking obsessed with this fair thing becaue of the left overs form the british rule. they have no shame. to be their slaves, and now follow them only. FIRANGI means awesome for indians. shame. i thank the greedy nehru and siding gandi for supporting the partition. :)

and the ad? ideas done. but the arts good. so its saved.
