How witty advertisements have peaked a new level of creativity in this pandemic

Published

on

witty advertisements

Advertising is a powerful tool by brands where they employ such fine creativity that it sometimes blows our minds. However, with this lockdown and pandemic restricting opportunities, brands have still found a way to keep their advertising game on point.

Several brands have come up with creative and witty advertisements that not only promote the product but convey the message of social distancing during this pandemic and other important attributes in a super interesting way. We bring to you some of these engaging ads that will either give you a good laugh or make you go oh wow.

McDonald’s

McDonald’s a few months ago changed its logo and moved the arches of the M further away from each other, in the context of promoting social distancing.

witty advertisements brand 1- mcdonalds

 

Nike

Nike launched a social media campaign that encouraged and motivated people to play indoors and stay indoors. NBA player LeBron James and golfer Tiger Woods were among the global players who endorsed it.

brand 2- Nike

 

 

Audi

 This automobile company decided to promote the importance of social distancing by tweaking its logo to suit the purpose. The original logo which had interconnected rings were shared as four separate rings to visually convey the message of social distancing.

brand 3- Audi

 

 

Volkswagen

This famous automobile company too decided to alter its logo to deliver the importance of social distancing and the crucial need to stay indoors. It achieved this idea by separating the V and the W on the logo and shared videos with inspirational messages.

brand 4- Volkswagen

 

 

 

Coca- Cola

This leading soft drink company ran an advertisement in New York. This brand that usually celebrates togetherness and clone knit love in its advertisement’s campaigns spread the message that “Staying apart is the best way to stay connected.” It even spaced out the letters in its name to support the cause.

brand 5- cocacola

 

Fevicol

During the lockdown 2.0 in India, the owner of Fevicol, Pidilite Industries used their Instagram to creatively portray the need for staying Indoors. It posted a picture of a door and played around with words. The caption said ‘Ab sabse mazboot door – INdoor’

brand 6- Fevicol

 

Durex

Durex India, which is a pioneer of creative advertising for their contraceptives, exhibited to people how staying inside is the real need of the hour.

brand 7- Durex

 

 

Volvo

 This automobile company also employed a reverse idea and interestingly asked people to stay at home. It shared a message on its social media that advocated how staying at home is the best thing to do.

brand 8- Volvo

Tokyo Olympics 2020

Well, to our disappointment the 2020 Olympics had to be postponed due to the virus situation. But the International Olympic Committee did its bit and propagated the message of social distancing by changing the Olympic logo into five distant circles.

brand 9- Tokyo Olympics

 

Conclusion

Even though the pandemic has stopped working in the outdoors to a major extent, it could not stop the indoor creativity to flow in. Above mentioned are some brands who have effectively utilized this time to create witty slogans, campaigns and social media programs to stay connected with their audience, while the audience stays indoors too.

We hope you had a fun time reading these brand engagements and are motivated further to follow social distancing.

Ridiculous statements in this pandemic that will actually crack you up

Published

ridiculous statement

The outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic in India has made us fight several battles. One is obviously with the virus, the others include our combat against fake news, forwards, and absurd theories put across by people. There have been waves of opinions, propaganda and belief systems circulating and advising people in their ways to fight the pandemic.

Amidst all of this, we have been a witness to some extremely ridiculous statements which ensure that you have a good laugh.

Let’s check some of them out.

Cow urine (gaumutra) and cow dung (gobar) can help you fight Corona

Since February, while the people were taking measures to fight the Coronavirus crisis, there was also a wave of propaganda in place to tell people that cow urine(gaumutra) and cow dung (gobar) can help you fight Corona. WhatsApp groups and timelines were flooded with such fake messages.

statement 1- Cow urine(gaumutra) and cow dung(gobar) can help you fight Corona

 

Reciting Hanuman Chalisa 11 times can treat COVID-19

This statement is credited to Mr Ramesh Saxena, a congress MP, and his blind faith. While it’s okay to have a belief in any hymn, without proper care and medications, neither Lord Hanuman nor his sanjeevani herb will help you fight Corona.

ridiculous statements 2-Reciting Hanuman Chalisa 11 times can treat COVID-19

Eating meat will give you Coronavirus

This was a trending statement in the country to attack the non-vegetarians and hold them responsible for bringing in the virus. As much as the virus may have fake links with the meat markets in Wuhan, this statement was yet another means of propaganda without any scientific evidence.

statement 3- Eating meat will give you Coronavirus

 

Amitabh Bachchan and his take on how clapping can kill the virus

The next day, after Janta Curfew, the Bollywood star Amitabh Bachchan portrayed the typical WhatsApp uncle behaviour and shared a misinformed tweet on how clapping can do away with the virus and the wrong significance of Amavasya. The tweet was eventually taken down but it just showed how gullible we are to fake news.

statement 4- Amitabh Bachchan and his take on how clapping can kill the virus

 

 

 WhatsApp and its ‘scientific reasons’ on how lighting diyas will kill Corona

It is a known fact that today probably the only individuals who efficiently praise every government activity are the enthusiasts from WhatsApp. When the Prime minister asked people to light diyas and candles ‘for 9 minutes at 9 pm on a Sunday’, the WhatsApp community played their role and glorified the so-called scientific aspect of this act. This fake forward was circulated everywhere.

statement 5- WhatsApp and its scientific reasons on how lighting diyas will kill Corona

 

Bharat ne khoj nikala corona virus ka ilaaj! Tezi se thik huyi mareez

This was a fake headline attached to an article link shared by a Facebook page ‘Har Har PM.’ It claimed that India has found a cure for coronavirus! A patient recovers speedily.  This article was enthusiastically shared by some fellow pages and was very misleading. The best part was that the cover picture that was used belonged to an article from China.

statement 6- Bharat ne khoj nikala corona virus ka ilaaj Tezi se thik huyi mareez

 

There is transmission in the community. But if it is community transmission or not that can be declared by the Centre only, it is a technical term

This was a legendary statement by Delhi health minister Satyendra Jain who has had us wondering and confused about what possibly it could mean. While we are still figuring out the deep meaning he wants to convey, here is a meme that will capture the exact emotion we all felt.

statement 8- There is transmission in community..its is a technical term

 

 

 

To conclude

 These statements are solid proof that we are also waging a war against stupidity and our gullible nature towards fake news. This pandemic is a time for free minds who are all set to confuse and falsely influence people around them. Hence, we must act with responsibility when we receive any such wave of information.

 As amusing and funny these statements are to read, you mustn’t fall prey to any wave of fake news or propaganda. Always remember to check your facts through multiple sources before you believe or forward any news. It is a collective fight for all of us. Stay home, stay safe!

While some were practical, we also have our own set of incidents that will either crack you up or make you wonder a thousand times!

Let’s take a quick read.

Nationalism through the breaking of Chinese manufactured electronics

One of the many incidents, men in Surat were found to be rejoicing and celebrating after smashing TV sets that were manufactured by Chinese companies. With their lathis, they chanted ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jay.’  Little, did they realise that they are never getting their money back.

Mistaken outrage

The outrage towards China took a mistaken turn when angry and confused BJP workers burned North Korea’s dictator Kim Jong’s effigy, confusing it to be the Chinese president.

We have also instances where protestors in Kolkata are using the map of the United States in their contribution to the boycott china movement.
