Making a typical ad world visual 'gag' at the expense of Parkinson's sufferers?! This campaign seems offensive and in poor taste.

How is this offensive? I think it's an interesting insight. It's not blowing my mind, but it is an interesting solution.

kaurtland,
it seems to me that ONM kolkata has tried to humorize the point of parkinsons. it is a deadly state of body when a person cannot move normally and due to nurological disorder, shakes a lot in any activity. You can't take that point out to show a person holding four brushes and taking chance on the toothpaste. don't u think this vulgar effort of humorizing trivializes the graveness of parkinsons. I've seen the sufferers and you or anyone who appreciates this ad will never be able to fathom the dire situation a patient goes thru.
someone below rightly said, piush shouldn't have endorsed this piece.

brother,
don't suffer from inferiority complex. indian ads have broken the world level a long ago. wake up.
however, ad is about idea and doesn't matter if it comes from usa or somalia or the moon.
just a small suggestion, don't fight the indian world class fight with this vulgar piece. humorizing the grave state of parkinsons may not be appreicated by the pope and poppers will follow.

Very nice solution indeed. Although the lighting seems awkward somehow.

Other than the use of the word "hand" the headline/tagline is a total disconnect.

the whole campaign sucks. Piyuish should think before endorsing his name on every fucking idea produced by O&M

patients with Parkinson have shaky hands, but they do see clearly. sorry, the whole ad doesn't make sense at all.

Its not because they have a poor vision that the visual shows multiple brushes...its because they have shaky hands the chances of spilling toothpaste is more so more than 1 brush used to prevent it....get it?
