    Sachin Tendulkar v/s Shah Rukh Khan: Indian Advertising is Ridiculous!

    After the yet to be released Sultan Inzamam v/s Emperor Ganguly showdown in the stupid LG Commercials, there is a new Showdown brewing in ad films, and I just finished storyboarding it. Street Gangs led by Sachin and Shah Rukh, against each other ala, Gangs Of New York!

    Can advertising get any dumber than this!

    Besides the golfers, tennis players, and footballers (soccer players), the highest played sportsman in Australia is someone who can't even make the Aus team - Brett Lee.

    And it's primarily due to his Indian commercials.

    In a country with more world champions per head of population than any other, how dumb is that?

    It's what the masses like, you havent seen other Indian adverts..good fun

    Here..........http://pepsizone.yahoo.co.in/tv_ads/home_tvads.html

    ..and to say the least, many British and Kiwi ads dont make sense either but they do it suit their public

    Last but no least, some American Commericials where someones life changes when a burger costs 75 cents

    Its all what people like and Marketing, as long as it makes money..they dont care if it looks dumb to other nantionalities

    I personally feel this is a Off-topic thread..

    The only Pepsi advertising that I've ever liked is the one they came out with during the 99 World Cup, where Shahrukh had a Sachin-hair-do.

    Advertising sucks, cricket advertising sucks even more. Sachin Tendulkar advertising something has been done to death, and it's just incredibly boring.

    This splurge of advertisements involving nearly every Indian cricketer is irritating......and the players seem to get carried away by them.....which is why Sanjay Bangar's not so bad at all- at least he had his feet firmly on the ground whenever he played.
