****Saturday Spice****

Agency:Creative juice
Brand: Mali Milk
In ad world they say, keep the ad “simple and interesting”, the KISS rule really works out wonders and brings out superb work of creativity .Well it might be argued that KISS rule might not work with all kinds of products but yes keeping an ad simple enough to understand and co-relating the message with the product is a hit formula to reach out to the audience.
The above ad for Mali milk is perfect example of KISS rule. Milk goes well with mothers and kids and what better way to attract the mothers by epitomizing strength as a character. These ads really speak out for itself, i.e the product and its quality. Superb execution for a product like milk.

"Ooh aah India..aah yaah India" - The new Marketing chant!!!

On one hand there is Sourav Ganguly, the ex-captain of the Indian cricket team saying, "Hi, I'm Sourav Ganguly. I hope you have not forgotten me." On the other, there is Shah Rukh Khan aka King Khan, the quintessential `King' of Bollywood saying, "People are right when they say, Shah Rukh will do anything for the public, be it endorsing or jumping around." Both, in extremely candid conversation with the audience, talk about the most controversial claims circling their lives, through the most public of domains, the television. Well i know that by now all of you guys would have seen the new commercials of Pepsi and the new chant that accompanies. Of late i was disappointed by the kind of ads pepsi aired especially the sucky Pepsi TV campaign which drew a lot of flak. The new ad is surely good. Especially the one featuring Ganguly and Shreyas Talpade a.k.a Iqbal, the ads do touch the emotional chord. A really good strategy on the part of pepsi simply because the chant lingers in your mind...and thats the most important thing.
Its amazing how two die hard competitors Pepsi and Coke are following different marketing paths now. Coke because of all the turmoil it is in right now is taking the Testimonial ads approach where Aamir Khan, Smriti Irani and a host of other regional stars are telling the public how safe it is to drink coke...reminded me of the ad that Big B had once done for Dairy Milk during the Worm infestation controversy...and pepsi i guess has benefited from the same coz it has introduced the new campaign at the right time, hitting COKE when its at its weakest...anyways too early to tell about this but my opinion is that Pepsi has given the first blow to Coke simply because of the timing of this campaign and the fresh appeal of the ads....anyways only time would tell...but surely would love your views on the same..
Hope everybody's having a great festive season....but remeber you gotta get back to work soon :)
