The other best part growin' up with those ads I can remember now was the "Ad Jingles" we kept murmuring, singing or screaming about them endlessly specially when there was minimal supervision from our parents at the Backyard, when our Folks had company like a Party or get-togethers. Wasn't it cool? having the whole backyard to ourselves, it was like we kids had our own party goin on, singing those Jingles our little hearts out! We even enacted them. Still cant get them out of our heads. Cute moments Yep, that's what I am talkin' about folks, we Kids Ruled in our times : ]
I had many favorites some of which are Amul, Parle-G, Bournvita, Maggie, Complan, about Stationary things, Detergents, Butter, Electric appliances which made us go Ga Ga over them, all the time. There were more FMCG Co'es/brands with their products like Dabur, HLL, Emami, Tata tea, Godrej, Bajaj 'n' this could keep goin' on. So all I wanna say is that, little did we know about the Commercials, to us they were not just some Stuff that we were supposed to know n think about it as a commodity or learn the info but it was all about the MAGICAL TIME cause our little childhood innocent souls are somewhere still hidden in them. The 80s "Maggie 2 Mins" Noodle ad is still fresh in my memories as it connects to the Backyard story, I shared with you.
So Folks would you like to share your most Favorite ad? some interesting stories that we could enjoy too.
HAIL TO THE CHILDHOOD DAYS!! I LOVE YOU ..OH THOSE SWEET SWEET MEMORIES is all we've got now and that's what this blog is all about.

CLASSIC INDIAN ADS ON DOORDARSHAN
CLASSIC INTERNATIONAL ADS
Old Spice " the Mark of a Man"
Gillete " The best a man can get"
Though this ad was international I remember it was played for a month or even less and later we had Indian models in Gillete-India ads. This is the original full version aired for US viewers, and for Indian viewers they showed few parts of this ad with the "Marathon winner" "a Guy on a Scooter", "Two people hug", "the Astronauts walking" and "the Wall street guys", it was short. I recalled the memories associated with this ad, which takes me back to my hometown and in those years when the ad was running on TV, my elder Cousin brother, at times used to sing this jingle with great passion "Gillete! the Best a man can get " he was a College going student and we were just kids, he would say to us, "you watch! I m gonna get a Scooter and a girl to ride with me, just like in the ad" :) ..didn't know what the big deal was, but It was funny to us, Had some good laughs..Well, Times were sweet. Gone are those days..Wow!. Gone with the Wind! Speaking of which, Time stops for no one, when you look back now, after these many years, dont you feel like she's been traveling at a Bullet speed, Crazy!! :)
