So, this ad irritated me today.
Well, some people don't think about it, and dismiss it as just an ad. I am certainly not one of them! I feel that whatever we see and consume influences us, whether we want to or not.
Few things I didn't like about the ad:
The headline: It implies there is a perfect version of a man, that women(wives and girlfriends) should be chasing, and that men should aspire to be. And somehow a man who has the interests advertised by the <cringe> "MAN Pack" are the ones of a better man.
Let's begin with, "Find your man boring?"
Then comes the copy advertising the channel pack:
"make him romantic and funny", "make him money-wise", "make him a master of hot debates", "bring out his macho, adventurous side"
Now let us replace it for women
"Find your woman boring?"
"make her cute and chirpy", "make her homely and nice", "make her good at parties", "bring out her sexual, playgirl side"
Gussa aaya? Mujhe bhi aaya! Key word I dislike - "make", coz I believe you can't make people do anything, and neither should you want to. It's manipulative and disrespectful.
What's your take on this ad?
