It was this Golden Period when no complaints about the ads were reported. The time when we considered product songs as actual songs. As for now, many people complain about the advertisement regarding their product advertising method. It is said, that a well designed advertisement is not made to mark its prints but to grab attention. Earlier, advertisements imprinted their marks in our memory which we carry till now. This piece of artwork is a time travel and to remind us that how washing powder Nirma has many competitors now. (Admit this)
To summarize, there are number of advertisements that we see all the time but there are a few, with a bang on marketing strategies. Such advertisements are centered around social causes which however, made their voices heard.
