I'm in love

with some fabulous advertisements on air these days. My favorite is the Dairy Milk Silk ad with a classical dancer. It is what advertising should actually be- no big star and no fuss, it tells you simply and succintly why you should buy a product- merely for your pleasure!! (Though Na later tells me that this product is not all that great) I love Dairy Milk ads, they are classy to the core.(Some!!) Another one is the Cola Ad with Kalki/ Imran Khan. what I am amazed at is the amazing chemistry they share, like SRK and Tabu!! They dont utter one single word but sizzle the ad with their presence. Just like Katrina who looks absolutely alluring in the new Slice advert, in a boat. She simply looks sexy, much like the aamsutra she is promoting! Slick and Sensational, they are simple reminders that all you need is a little presence of mind in marketing yourself, not oodles of cash!

I interviewed Konkona Sen today and all I'll say is that it was disappointing! I really like her work so will not criticise her but it was not what I expected! One good thing was that I got to interview the wonderful Vinay Pathak(who for me will always be Winnie Sir in Hip Hip Hurray)who was really entertaining. Articulate and witty, he even conveyed regards to my sister because I said that we were great fans of his!

I really am clueless as to why Colors and Max want to kill Hindi speaking people by subjecting them to a torture of dubbed Telugu movies!!

You like konkana sen? A little birdie told me otherwise!
Well as for the ads, dairy milk silk ad with the classical dancers is delicious! What do you think of the fevicol ads???
The rest I already know!

PS: is it not Imran khan?
The ad is awesome but the comparison is not.

eww, hate the diary milk silk, therefore found the ad more or less distateful, and in direct contrast to the same governing principles, loved the new vanish id, Sridevi's presence is ironic in the ad that talks about vanishing!

i love the dairy milk silk ad too...pretty much reminded me of the way i ate chocolate as a kid :D :D
i have great regards for konkona sen as an actresss and some of the interviews ive watched were really maybe we shud cut her some slack here.
