Today I happened to see the old nescafe ad in some old newspaper. For a moment I just glanced at the print ad & then followed my impromptu reaction – watch the ad on youtube. In the process I saw many more old ads from doordarshan-era. Sharing them with you.
1) NESCAFE — late 90s & early 2000
The jingle was a popular ringtone of masses 🙂
2) Catburys Dairy Milk — mid 90s
Some trivia – this ad was sung by none other than very talented Shankar Mahadevan. Some other people to note in the ad are –
Omung Kumar (one who is trying to catch a falling choc) — The host of once a very popular show on Zee TV called Ek Minute. He is now a popular art director for live shows & tv serials.
Sonal Dabral (one with a pony & playing with a baby) — This man is a popular tv ad director. He had a long association with Zee TV – He used to work in many serials.
Sweetie from Hum Paanch (Can’t recall her real name)
3) Titan — late 80s & early 90s
Aishwarya, simply beautiful !!!!!!!!!!!!! (as always) 🙂
Besides Aish ;), notice the simple wrist watch … its simple design.
4) Bajaj Auto — Hamara Bajaj 🙂 — 1988-89
5) LifeBuoy — 1992
The old ad before the marketing team at HLL realized that this ad was a blunder of sorts because it projected the soap as a soap exclusively for MEN. Then they changed the branding of this product & had depicted a family in later versions of the ad … [some trivia for my readers 🙂 ]
Hope you all enjoyed these old ads from our grand old DD !!
