Advertisement in bad Taste

An advertisement is generally supposed to reflect the company and its products. Some times the advertisement agency which is responsible for the story, script, visual effect etc do not look at the implications of the product it presents.


Iam sure most of you would have seen the advertisement. “HARI SADO”. The subordinate is calling a restaurant to book a table in his boss’s name. The person taking the table booking at the restaurant end is not able to decipher the name and so the subordinate has the audacity to give the name of his boss with alphabet expansion as follows.

H-Hitler, A-Arrogant, R-Rascal, I-Idiot, etc…. This is followed by a commentary, saying that the person has got a placement through a placement company (Deliberately avoided the name). Does this not reflect the kind of professionals the placement company has in its databank. This is also projecting a wrong method to professionals when they exit from a company.

I hope some staff from the placement company does the same to their boss and then they would realize the kind of image they have created for themselves.

    Hi One ad shows that a palace is lights are lit by the servants chewing gum. This is most ridculous ad and another ad where a guy puts on the AXE deo spray, the women around him will run towards him for sexual pleasures. This is another sucking ad to me. The present Ad about the Pulsar 220 CC ad where the warning comes don’t do these stunts and these stunts are performed by experts. In over crowded roads of India what is the need of 220 CC bike and the people don’t stop going very recklessly on the roads and the result will be a deadly accident. Same is with the CBZ ad where a expert rider goes to the end of the mountain clip very fast and rotate the bike with the front wheel. What is the need for a person to go so fast on a road full of traffic. In this way many senseless ads are made by the advertisers. The ad you are talking about is very useless ad and I don’t find any humour in that ad.

    With love Madhu….

    All will agree with your views on such ads and also with the comments given by the bloggers on your views. Such ads should not be allowed. There is an association of advertisers. It is strange that the association is not monitoring the ads by their members.
