Indians really know how to screw up punchlines. This is apparent when you see advertisers coming up with the most insane or bizarre slogans. Take one of the original slogans of Polo for instance; “The mint with a hole”….
Was that supposed to be a slogan or a product description?
Here are some other wacky slogans and taglines, and how they translate into reality.
1. Thums Up “Aaj Kuch Toofani Karte Hai”
Slogan Reality: Yes, it is true. Drinking Thums Up can cause some very Toofani dakaars.
2. Asian paints “Har Ghar Kuch Kehta Hai”
Reality: I had coated my house walls with Asian Paints too. After one year, ab mera ghar chillata hai, “Phir se paint karao”.
3. Raymond, “The Complete Man”
Reality: So does that mean wearing a Raymond will make a guy a man? Cause no matter how many times my boyfriend wears a Raymond, he just can’t get off his ass and find a job.
4. HDFC Std. Life “Jiyo Sar Utha Ke”
Ad Slogan Reality: Premium bharte bharte kamar hi toot gayi. Ab sar uthane ki naubat kaha rahi?
5. Kit Kat “Have A Break”
Slogan Reality: Waiting for the day when Boss looks at me eating a Kit Kat and say “Take a break”. Never happens.
6. Mentos, “Dimaag Ki Batti Jala De”
Reality: Waiting for the day when my boyfriend eats a Mentos and finally says, “Oooh, I should look for a job.” Never happens.
And that is just the tip of the iceberg, my friends!
