    Top 2 TVC’s during ICC CWC,2011 

    The recently concluded ICC Cricket World Cup saw a plethora of new advertisements, price of the air time sky rocketed. Overall viewership ratings hit all time high. The numbers were staggering, a record 65 million watched in Television and several tens of millions were glued to good old radio [ There’s no electricity so, they had to resort to the primitive methods ]. Going back to the TVC’s, here are two of my favorites commercials which I enjoyed as much as the tournament itself. I’m sure most of us loved them.

    1. Nike – Bleed Blue: Nike are the official kit sponsors for Team India, they hit the right note with this sensible yet awe inspiring piece.


    2. Vodafone – 3G services: Vodafone guys rock big time. This time it was the launch of their third generation mobile services, first they gave us this fantastic Ad and later followed it up with 40 days of FREE 3G services, hats off to Vodafone.

            Pug was extensively used during the HUTCH days, once Vodafone took over, they phased out the pup…Sad 😦

    Father of Indian Digital Photography 


    Sharad Haksar is one the finest Digital Photograpers India has ever produced. In fact it would be perfectly alright to call him the “ Father of Indian Digital Photography“. He hails from Chennai, which gives him the distinct advantage of access to cutting edge technology and latest editing softwares. I vividly remember, Mahesh and I used to stop at a hoarding space [ Which was owned by him ] to admire his Social Banners. He would put up hoardings covering an array of social evils. My personal favorite was the one on Sex-detection of babies. It’s is illegal in India. I tried to search for that photograph but no luck, so sad. However, I found few of his most fascinating works, which made him what he is today. Below Photographs are not from his Social campaigns but they are mind blowing. Take a look.


    Brand Irony 1 – Colgate



    Brand Irony 2 – Coca Cola [ He was sued by Coca Cola for hosting this on his hoarding space 😀 ]

    Coca Cola


    Brand Irony 3 – Nike [ They were a good “Sport”, no suit filed 😛 ]



    Brand Irony 4 – Master Card [ Swipe here ]



    One of his classics for a Clothing Brand – Stori [ This was during the Iraq war. Great Improvisation ]

      Good stuff, Narendra………an Indian Banksy-type ?!

      I just looked up Bansky’s profile…he seems more like an activist…Haksar on the other hand sticks to photography…After the Cola incident he pulled out his hoardings..and now focuses only on professional engagements…
