18 Quirkiest Ads Ever Made

18 Quirkiest Ads Ever Made 4

There are various types of advertisements we see every day around us. It doesn’t matter what we are doing, we are surrounded by advertisements. Advertisements are everywhere right from the newspaper to television to outdoor parties and stalls to mobile and internet. A select few of them are really creative and good, some are tolerable, but the rest makes us scream out silently.

So here are the 18 quirkiest ads ever made-

1. Colgate

First of all, whose idea it was: a toothpaste with salt (and now lemon and neem)? And then coming back to the irritating ad, just imagine one morning you are towards your bathroom and suddenly a reporter (Sonakshi, Kareena or Priyanka) appears from nowhere with her gang and asks, “Kya aapke toothpaste mei namak (or nimbu aur namak or neem) hai?” Or imagine you are in a movie theater and suddenly Sonakshi comes out of the movie screen to ask you the same stupid question. And she gives you a Colgate Active Salt and goes back into the screen.

2. Vodafone (crazy feet dance)

Indians love to dance and watch other’s dance but not like absolute morons. According to Vodafone, we should waste our net packs by watching lame and pointless videos of some idiotic people who are dancing like chicken in a group and posting them on social media.

3. Samsung S4 Obsession

Woohoo! A man has become so much obsessed with his mobile that he wrote S and 4 on his bed sheets, pillows, handkerchief, and everywhere which even made his wife doubt upon him.

4. Nokia Lumia (Malkhamb Rock)

And this two-minute ad where men are pole dancing like crazy and you won’t realize even for a second that they are selling you a mobile.

5. Fair and Lovely

And here comes a series of nonsense ads. Firstly, we would like to inform you that darker skin is much more attractive than fairer one. And it’s a fact. We should be proud of being Indians who don’t have super fair skin. Secondly, being fairer or darker doesn’t make any difference to either your personal or professional life. The only thing which counts is your attitude, character, and personality.

And coming back to the ad, just imagine a girl dressed like a complete ‘behenji’ gets rejected and then after applying fair and lovely regularly for some weeks she goes for the same interview but this time she is dressed in a business suit and she got selected. What do they want to show us? The magic of fairness or something else? These ads are only made to discourage the audience. Nowadays, even boys are their target. All the ads follow the concept of an average looking girl who doesn’t really have any aim in life and she started using the cream and gets a job, promotion and a good looking guy just after 2 weeks.

6. Axe Deo ad (Chocolate Boy)

Firstly, there are many women who don’t like chocolate. Secondly, the chocolate boy will melt in India as soon as he steps out of his house.axe-chocolate-dark-temptation Axe-Dark-Temptation-Chocolate

 

 

 

 

 

 

7. Pepsi Bhaag

This ad is just another one which doesn’t make sense. Two boys are running insanely to reach a ground to play cricket and they reach the stadium where our Indian cricket team is already playing. And when Virat Kohli asks, “What is wrong with them?” They reply, “Bhai, jaldi mei the.” What the hell is wrong with these advertisers? Why they make such insane ads?

8. Kinley (Boond boond mei Sacha ai)

I know that this ad seemed cute to you when the girl calls her father and confesses that she lied to him and the reason why she was not able to sleep. But it is not possible with the consumption of water and if you are planning to try it then either you will be thrown out of your house or you will be locked in your house for months.

9. Rupa Frontline Vest

In this ad, you will see that a vest can make you stay ahead of everyone even the minister. Really?

10. Snickers

This ad shows that hunger can make anyone behave like a heroine which will be subdued by the consumption of Snickers. Well, researchers are still busy finding the logic behind the concept. You can test it by the following steps: stay hungry for 8-10 hours and then make someone record your behavior so that you will be able to check your changed behavior and then don’t forget to grab a Snickers.

11. Dove

We are living in a country where a person who owns an onion is also considered rich. We are fighting with poverty, hunger and deadly diseases like dengue. Why will anyone waste milk for bathing?

12. MDH masala

This animated commercial is so much irritating, there us nothing else that i could say.

13. Honda Mobilio

Why the makers of this commercial have added an ultra-cool irritating family in it?

14. Rin

Two women have covered their whitest dress with a shawl and are about to visit a five-star hotel where the hotel manager is standing outside only to pass comments on them. And now they have got the chance to show off their dress. Seriously, why they make such advertisements?

15. Munch

16. Godrej Expert Rich Creme

There are two women in the video who scream out loud “Oh my god, Oh my god, Oh my god” like god knows what have they accomplished. The advertisement is really annoying and irritating because it suddenly pops up when we are watching movies.

17. Cadbury Eclairs- The fountain of chocolate

And this commercial of Cadbury Eclairs which shows fountains of chocolate burst out of everyone’s head.
