Works for India. Would probably be called racist if it ran anywhere else.

I can only go so far as to say this ad will work better in India, BUTTTT these ads hardly sell the product.

I think it depends. If the brand is well enough known, they could get away without talking about how good it looks. The odorless angle could work. Either way, they're not great. But not horrible.

Why would it be racist? Care to enlighten me?

I didn't say it would be racist. I said it would likely be called racist due to racial sensitivity. Or oversensitivity, depending on your point of view.

This is really reaching to make a connection from the product to the image. It's barely selling the feature of the paint. Just barely.
