A shot of freshness to jazz up your life!

“I am blogging for #MaxFreshMove activity at BlogAdda.com. Are you?

I happened to attend a meeting in Delhi on official work….The meeting was scheduled for a Friday evening. Tickets were booked back home the same night at about 2 am from the airport. Dressed up for the meeting i was waiting in the lobby of the Hotel when the board of directors were about to arrive. A sudden pop up message showed up on the notification screen of my Iphone, when i realised a long lost friend from college days who was a base guitarist was trying to connect through me. There was a smile across my face when i realised she was performing the same night for an elite class socialite wedding reception about 5 blocks away from the hotel building i was sitting in.

Excited to meet her i was jumping in my place and forgot about the meeting. I don’t even recollect when the meeting started and wrapped up. All i know was how anxious and dreamy i was about the night performance and even more after she mentioned the Popular and energetic singer Anushka Manchanda being a part of it.

AManushka manchanda

Launched into the Bollywood playback scene with her first super hit song Golmaal, she was hailed as the voice of the new generation and has worked with the hottest music directors in the country from Vishal-Shekhar, Salim-Suleiman, Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy to Jigar-Sachin, Pritam and Amit Trivedi.

On reaching the venue i realised it was going to be one heck-of-a-night! Music and a great crowd but something was missing indeed……ummm what about dance??? And there the award winning performer Allu Arjun joined in on stage:

Iddarammayilatho (25)

  • 12008 Parugu Filmfare Award for Best Actor – Telugu
  • 22011 Vedam Filmfare Award for Best Actor – Telugu
  • 12004 Arya Nandi special jury Award

An absolute livewire on stage, both of them had the audiences gasping at their high energy performances. They have been known to perform night after night without the tiniest drop in their power packed presentation.

With memories in mind i did not really want to leave the place as the crowd was in full gusto and happening like never before. With a happy heart i boarded onto the flight and couldn’t wait to come back and tell my friends about the unexpected encounter that i had that was a memorable night i wouldn’t forget for a long time.

I can’t wait for another such night in my Life again where music and dance keeps me engaged, forgetting anout everything else around and having a merry time….A power packed combo indeed!

AlluAnu – A perfect blend!

“I am blogging for #MaxFreshMove activity atBlogAdda.com. Are you?

“One Hot Chocolate milkshake, please!”, said Myrah. Sitting at the coffee house she was awaiting the arrival of her team of digital brainstormers for an upcoming event to be performed for a brand campaign of a sponsered college festival. A huge checklist laid in front of her eyes from organizers, sponsors, venue, designers, event decorators…..and the list just went on.

“Hey, Myrah!” said Liah. As she entered the coffee house and walkpast all the onlookers for being loud enough to gain enough attention as it is. She greeted Myrah with a hug and pulled a chair to sit across her. Before she could start the remaining few from the group of dynamic youngsters popped in.

With a cheerful look, they all had ideas in mind to crack up the campaign. Research from youtube videos to data collection, influencers, blogger list all was arranged. Done, Done, Done a check mark across the to-do list was done.

“Oh No!” Priya exclaimed.

“What is it?” Myrah questioned, out of fear.

“We’ve missed something very important. ENTERTAINMENT!”

Myrah got freaked out. “Whom to arrange for in such a shot notice?” A blend of music and dance, moves and vocals to cheer up the crowd is what we need. Everyone sat on their laptops, contacting PR’s and artists for the event. But none seemed to fit the bill or looked enchanting to make the show a hit for now. Tired for trying, they took a break and retired for the day. They went back to Liah’s apartment and chilled out for the night. Brainstorming over dinner Rohan said, “How about Rajnikanth” Ummmmm no forget seems alot for a college event. But how about someone similar from south? They are like all born dancers with moves in their blood, someone like Allu Arjun? “Aha, sounds nice” Myrah gave a go ahead look. Allu-Arjun-New-Hot-Sexy-and-Cool-Unseen-Image45125-19 But what about the other half to complement hmmmm….a list of bollywood singers was made…striked out…reworked on….but the question was who would be the enthralling one to raise up the energy of the crowd….like a youngster friendly to freshen up and rejuvenate the spirit??? Uhhh….mmm….Anushka? “You mean Anushka Manchanda??” Priya asked “Yes,Bingo…Got it!!” 5425829260_db444993fb_b

Few calls and contacts were made and onboard were the two dynamic personalities….

On the day of the event the college crowd went crazyy on hearing the show-stopping performers for the night. A full house entry indeed. Happy smiles on all those young faces, bouncing with energy and enthusiasm…having a blast and a gala time were the teenagers. Some found their fans and others their idol in Allu and Anushka…A truly mad night that was unforgettable for them indeed!

LoLworthy Ads for Crash the Pepsi IPL!

So have you already #CrashedThePepsiIPL ? If not watch these hilarious and funny videos….some are meaningful ofcourse with ads submitted for the love of pepsi by folks around the nation. Seems like the IPL fever is truly on not only with the young generation but the older ones too. Insane ads, have a watch and share a light-hearted moment laughing 😀

This one seems like the same old concept with a twist. It reminds me of twins being lost at “kumbh ka mela” here its a different one with a boy having a birth mark and meeting his better half in the stadium while watching the match and boom….perfect partnership. Like the depiction but concept seems too familiar to me.

Hmm so this is like the breakup story. Where he walks off and the girl is sulking…And the knight in shining armour comes to put her smile on her face like chance pe dance types. Light Hearted and fun to watch these ads 😀

Honestly, when the add started off i thought it would depict depression and loneliness being overcome with a bottle of pepsi. But the ending was hilarious. He sips onto pepsi…runs like a fool in the jungle…with leaves surrounding him…ahhh a complete no-no! Should have improvised on the ending part of it

Hahaha “Match-fixing” seemed like a perfect tag to this one. Where during the good olden days, phone numbers were shared on a piece of paper via the waiter in a restaurant to woo the lady of your dreams and here she writes it on a bottle of pepsi. Cute ^_^

This one was fun, where they have added the entire bottle as the main element of their ad. Not to mention using the cap of the bottle as “simply play cricket yaa” types. Really cool.

This is simply the sweetest. Reminds me of childhood times when after winning a match against the oppsite team we would bet of pepsi and then share it with all. I mean so many of us keep doing that even now. And sharing it with a less fortunate is simply an act of random kindness!

Probably the case in everyone’s office right one with the way the IPL fever is on and working folks miss the live updates due to an important presentation or simply a fixed 9-5 working job. The cutting chai being replaced with the pepsi was the best. Bravo Concept

Another brilliant one with the “drink happiness” Placing a smiley against all. I assumed they would multiply with pepsi but it simply just tilted towards drink happiness. Lovely video and concept. An unpredictable one actually. Good going!

Live it Abhi! #Phase 2

So the IPL Fever is on and everyone is busy crashing the Pepsi IPL! All the pepsi lovers across the country have made inumerbale ads with a motive to actually replace the original one! Some have been fun,quirky,humour filled or simply insane with a sheer love for the most favourite drink and game for all of us Indians! #CrashThePepsiIPL

Let’s have a look at some of the crazy ads that made you laugh or just wonder why-oh-why?

I like with funky ad with caricature type cartoons with super power, fighting with each other to over power each other to jump, hop and skip from one end to the other to sip onto the quenching thirst of the favourite Pepsi drink. Oh wait it’s not only a drink it’s something worth fighting for at the end!

This one is a mysterious one. Like i wonder what the abhi he was asking for to the girl in the ad actually meant? From the park in the bench to the lift until the car parking lot seemed like the guy had a lot of patience to resist opening a chilling can of PEPSI until he realized, its so empty!! And the pretty girl comes to his rescue by smirking and offering him one from her bag. Yeah his “Abhi” finally seemed to get satisfied and content 😀

This one is another smart one, from chennai super kings to delhi daredevils to sunrisers hyderabad. He nods a NO for every team when questioned to be his favourite for the IPL and finally a BIG yes to the TEAM PEPSI IPL as it surely unites as all. Why? Have you every watched a match with a group of friends supporting different teams but at the end of it no matter who won the game the bonding and time shared during the match has been even more special. Add an element of PEPSI to the IPL to season the flavored game to the extreme!

This one is the best. The background music has the commentary of the ongoing match going on and by the time the match comes to an end the bottle of pepsi is half down and then gulped off completely. I like the way it is depicted so neatly getting across the message rightly to the audience with the element of #CrashThePepsiIPL in a perfect way! It also depicts scoring with PEPSI IPL is what we are all looking for. I would love to vote for this one to replace the original ad in the upcoming one’s shown. Thumbs up!

In short, if you are an artist who has a collection of designs and would love to share it with a larger audience without letting your design just pile up in one corner of the room and be a waste, instead share and sell these designs to customers in the form of products like coasters,mugs,t-shirts as designed merchandise then my friend, POSTER GUY is what you have been in search of all this while. I mean how cool is that? A product designed and sold in your artwork exclusively and you being paid for it at the same time. A real unique concept that i came across in a while.

It’s 100X brighter than LED flashlights and controlled by a simple interface, so you’ll capture true-to-life photos with low distortion and extreme details — all with the touch of a button.

ZenFone 2 is a 5.5-inch smartphone with a body that is as small as that of a traditional 5-inch device. This incredible engineering achievement was made possible by reducing the bezel width to the bare minimum, giving ZenFone 2 a remarkable 72% screen-to-body ratio. ZenFone 2 has an incredibly slim profile, it is just 3.9mm at the thinnest edge. This is more than an impressive engineering feat that we compressed the powerful Intel processor, the dual sim card, the thin design is so comfortable to hold, and makes using ZenFone 2 easier. ZenFone 2 is powered by a 64-bit 2.3GHz Super Quad-Core Intel Atom Z3580 processor, and is the world’s first smartphone with 4GB of dual-channel DDR3 RAM. Featuring LTE Category 4+ for download speeds up to 250Mbit/s, and a 60ms touch response time, ZenFone 2 gives you power beyond your imagination.This also allows ZenFone 2 to eliminate the visual and physical obstacle on the side, making it the best looking smartphone, ever.

Quirkiest Ad’s i’ve come across in a long while!

Some will make you laugh and some will make you cry. Here are 10 QUIRKY advertisements from across the globe (mostly directed by wes anderson) that are so quirky & would not make you want to switch the channel the moment they come on!

In 2008, Anderson teamed up with Brad Pitt to make a commercial for the Japanese telecommunications and Internet company SoftBank. Inspired by Jacques Tati’s Les Vacances de Monsieur Hulot (Mr. Hulot’s Holiday), Anderson sets the Japanese commercial in a French seaside town and uses one continuous shot to capture Pitt as a bumbling tourist.

In 2012, Wes Anderson directed two commercials for Hyundai. In the first commercial, Anderson uses a mixture of miniatures and advanced car technology. The result resembles famous smart cars from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and The Spy Who Loved Me, as well as Knight Rider‘s KITT.

Is your old job a pain and your boss an absolute nuisance? Well then , this ad by Naukri.com is one you need to watch immediately!

In 2002, Swedish furniture company IKEA kicked off their “Unböring” marketing campaign with an Anderson-directed commercial featuring a family drama unfolding in a very stylish living room. When Anderson pulls his camera back, it’s revealed that the family was staging an argument on an IKEA sales floor.

Wes Anderson co-directed this commercial for Belgium brewers Stella Artois with Roman Coppola. The TV spot features Anderson’s penchant for symmetry and ’60s French pop culture.

Although Mercedes’ attempt is credible , Jaguar’s take on it has us grunting with laughter!

Anderson asked 75 children throughout New York, Los Angeles, and London what they thought goes on inside an Xperia mobile phone. The spot centers on a response from an 8-year-old named Jake Ryan that features tiny robots doing the heavy lifting inside the device. Anderson took a cue from his animated film The Fantastic Mr. Fox and built a visual world using stop-motion animation.

Anderson’s American Express “My Life. My Card” ad is arguably his best commercial work to date. The two-minute spot features longtime Anderson collaborators Jason Schwartzman and Waris Ahluwalia, as well as cinematographer Robert Yeoman. It showcases what life is like on an Anderson movie shoot and serves as a keen parody, with the director poking fun at his own signature style and tropes.

Sussex Safer Roads’ dramatic ad makes us think twice about leaving aside our seatbelts

Man, watching these ads, I confess I’m a sucker for quirky humor and these ads are without a doubt the quirkiest I’ve seen in a long while.

I am joining in on all the Pepsi IPL action in my own style with the #CrashThePepsiIPL activity at BlogAdda.”

Catchy Ad’s that make you laugh!

There is a great car analogy that Robin always uses to explain why businesses should be consistent with their advertising. Advertising is like driving a car. You have to use a lot of gas to get up to speed but once you reach full potential you can cruise. If you slam on the breaks you have to use more gas to get back up to speed.

We all rely, in part, on repeat business and referrals. Old customers are the key to both. When old customers don’t hear about you, or directly from you, they tend to move on. Cutting your advertising is a negative signal to those who actively patronize you.

You will always have overhead; bills, telephone, rent/equipment, your time. Advertising creates the AIR overhead breathes! Advertising is the portion of your business responsibilities that rejuvenates and draws new life (revenue) into the process.

Advertising is about attracting, holding, and focusing attention. And nothing gets our attention like a funny TV commercial.

Few of the funny AD’s i have come across in India so far….

Center Shock chewing gum

A boy goes in a barber shop to get his hair cut in particular style. The barber thinks of a trick and gives him Center Shock Chewing Gum. The boy’s hair gets charged after eating the chewing gum.

Halonix Bulb

“Before changing the clothes, change your bulb,” the commercial’s punch line reads.

Philips Widescreen TV

In this commercial a boy and a girl run towards each other but they get tired in the end due to the miscalculation of the distance between them.

Glycodin Cough Syrup

In this commercial the guru according to Indian tradition gives a name to a child.

Parle Musst Bites

Seeing a pack of Parle Musst Bites, a flavoured, cheesling-clone snack, a boy gets tempted, and attempts to take a handful from the pack of a nearby sitting old woman. To his shock, the old woman bites down hard on his hand.

Center Fresh!

The ad film for Center Fresh reaffirms the brand’s positioning ‘Zubaan pe rakhe lagaam’ (Keeps your mouth shut). Titled ‘Bank Robbery’, the plot involves a masked robber stealing the money at gun point and leaving from the bank without getting caught. However, when a lady shouts out to call security for help, the robber (security guard of the bank) comes back into the bank and saying “Yes Madam” out of habit. This way he gets caught.

Cobra Soda

The ad shows a family in a hall, where a lawyer reads out the will of the late Morarji Das. To the astonishment of the family, none of them inherit the fortune and it goes to the house maid, Kanta Bai. The family gets shocked, and one of the sons reaches out for a bottle of Cobra Sparkling Water. After gulping it down, he congratulates the maid on the achievement of the wealth!

Chlor-Mint Ice

In this ad, a fire-eater approaches a water-vendor and on asking the money spits fire on the vendor. Not willing to let down, the vendor hits a bulls-eye and lands the Chlor-mint inside the mouth of the performer. Shockingly, the fire-eater starts spewing out ice.

Fevicol

A couple traveling in their pick up van gets intrigued by a consistent follower on a bicycle. They get puzzled and change their route but the the cyclist never goes away. The end shows the van carrying loads of Fevicol.
