short, sweet and smart!

This is an old ad from one of the best Bangalore based production houses. I was floored by the simplicity of it. It was for 10 seconds on Kishore Kumar.

On a blank black screen, with typing effects, the words come out ‘Kishore Kumar’. Background music goes on. Then ‘1929 – 1987’. After 1987 gets printed on the screen, the cursor starts deleting and moves back to
‘1929 – ‘ and the cursor blinks and stops there.

The caption comes," Legends never die"

straight, short, sweet and smart!

This reminds me of one of the adv. clipping I got thru mail.
Picture this..

"No silence

A guy standing on a diving board in his swimming trunks, then came a fly buzzes(only sound in the ad.) around & sits on his butts, he shoos it comes back again n again"

Then comes the message.."always use XYZ toilet papers"

FUNNY..Short and straight :-)

I remember a fictional advert for Nike in movie "What women want". It shows a woman running and in the end,
just plain simple adline
"No Games, Just Sports"
