Mauritian adverts crap?
Ziiingggg Ziiingggg Ziiingggg Ziiingggg Ziiingggg
Does this word Ziiingggg tell you anything?
If yes, you have perhaps watched this fruit juice advert, in which you see Ziiingggg displayed everywhere, bus receivers shouting the same word, youngsters dancing on a Ziiingggg music, etc etc…
I dont think that the following french pharse is suitable, but I prefer telling it like this
“C’est la goutte d’eau qui fait deborder la vase”
Why? Simply because many of the tv adverts broadcasted nowadays are simply nonsense, and I feel its a shame to the professionals in the industry.
Whether its on TV or on Radio, we don’t lack suck types of adverts…
Very bad examples
Some of the examples:
- “Peze asterisk pu kokin to camarade so caller tune”
Are such words supposed to be used in adverts?
- use of foutou in an advert for dog food.
The scene : Someone cannot sleep because the dogs in his neighbourhood are barking, then he says something like this : “donne sa manzer foutou!”
- The most ridiculous adverts remain the ones for the trade fairs.
One which am sure, loads of mauritians won’t forget *devil*, will be that of Nomad, Newly improved one...lol
Most promising ones?
Some of the most promising and entertaining ones remain those made by Shakeel Madani.
His tv adverts are very original and fun, its always a pleasure to watch them.
I cannot remember all of the adverts, perhaps you can help me?
