Brilliant?

Don't get me wrong. I like this ad a lot. It says what it wants to say very clearly. But there's NOTHING brilliant about it. Matter of fact it's painfully mundane and (here it comes!) boring.
Do you know how many "black-out" visuals/messages I saw a couple of weeks ago surrounding the event? I'd never seen more black ink and dark computer screens around me...

Very Good Strategy & Even better Execution!

Gr88 Work Tony & Ben... I will definitely discuss this advt with my students in my next lecture.

In India, we call such things "Ekdam Zakkass"!

"In India, we call such things Ekdam Zakkass!"

You realize you've just created a lightning rod for more stupid Indian jokes here, right, Professor?

Hey... JPL! What can i say... Not fair!

I really liked the clarity & simplicity maintained by the creators of this advt. instead of Unnecessarily running after so called "Creativity".

The prime role of any / every component of Brand Orchestration programme is to deliver the predefined msg/Strategy effectively to its target audience... All Our clients pay us for that! & only for that.

This advt. has achieved it (inspite of being Boring!!!)

Why don't u guys stop saying crap and put your heads to good use?
The ad does what it has to do. That it gets stupid comments from you is not the advertiser or client's concern.
