Gladiator... WTF?!

Well, as you can see for yourself, the Yamaha Gladiator wins the tightly contested 'WTF award for advertising excellence' in the Bikes category. Some of my readers were confused about the ad... well, to clarify for the last time, it was an ad for a bike and not a can of paint.

The Gladiator ad was a monument erected to draw attention to the pitiable state of afairs in our ad industry. Very similar to positioning Fanta as a levitation accessory. Even Goa pan masala beats these ads pants down!

For the time being, Gladiator is the daddy! The next award category coming soon :)

Thanks Sue :)

Well, obscenity and stupidity can't be supressed! The Fanta ad would feature in one of the upcoming polls...

Meantime, there's a new category - Humility. Tell me how you like it.
