There’s a relatively new Ponds talcum powder ad that’s been airing recently: Pretty girl (read: fair) is getting ready for marriage and she hears a scene. The father-in-law (f-i-l) to be screams that if he isn’t going to get the money (now!) that the marriage is off. Our pretty bride goes to the f-i-l and hands him a ring (which I presume is the engagement ring) and he walks off in a huff.
She holds a press conference later and is praised for her stand and a smart-looking guy asks for her hand in marriage. And they live happily ever after and she continues to use Ponds forever. And their kids use ponds too. Sorry, got carried away there.
I wonder about this ad: Why didn’t the smart girl call off the wedding before the date was set? I am sure the money matters would’ve been discussed at the “proposal” stage and she would’ve been aware of it. So, she was okay with it at that stage but, she calls the wedding off only when her Dad is not able to make the down payments on the groom’s car, er, dowry?
Huh? And we’re supposed to buy Ponds because of this?
Since when did Ponds become a smartness drug? What are they sniffing now-a-days anyway? Ponds?
