This is one Ad that Rosser Reeves and his ad agency made with their unique way of getting repetitive and drilling. Viewers hated this ad but the sales of Anacin sure did shoot up.

Of course, I beg to differ. Creativity is the core of advertising... Amen!

Public Conscience in Ads

Long drawn court cases...

...“Yes, art does imitate life,” says Brijesh Jacob, ECD, Grey Worldwide, who was with Lowe when he conceptualised the Greenply ad. In Greenply’s ‘case’ (no pun intended), Jacob and his team took inspiration from news clippings on long drawn out court battles such as those for the 1993 Mumbai blasts and the Jessica Lal murder. Keeping in line with the Greenply humour, the brand wanted an ironic and satirical backdrop to bring forth the product’s durability concept.....

...the Tata Tea TVC, which has a young man questioning a political candidate’s qualifications to govern the country (awakening with Tata Tea, instead of just waking up). So, what’s with the reality check?....

...“These issues have always existed; due credit to the clients for supporting such creatives,” remarks brand consultant R Sridhar, partner, IDEAS-RS. “Usually, clients shy away from controversial topics.” Sridhar attributes the rise of such commercials to the evolving Indian psyche, particularly that of the youth.
