Speaking of Ice Cream Bilboards……


This one is so much better……
But had it been in another province of our beloved nation, or even in karachi some 15-17 years ago…..
no one would have dared do put this up…..

    back in the Zia days…..there were all sorts of restrictions….

    This one…for example….would have been labelled as seductive or suggestive…..

    im not kidding!!!
    speak to advertisers that have worked through those days….

    we dont have a problem with these things….but back then,…there were issues…

    remember Mr. Shariffs “no jeans n jackets” culture???

    Jonbyr:…..Beat ya!!!!

    i DO have a problem with these things!! al advertising, i feel on some level, must carry some kind of social obligation. to propogate some manner of positive thought, action or merely feeling- i mean if we are going to see something that size it should atleast be amazing looking and make our day. this billboard fulfills nothing. its not even advertising. when we are so keen to ape everything the other side of the world does, lets learn the good stuff too. *sorry this is always subject that gets me going!!* :)

    it carries a certain subliminal mesage too….

    its designed to provoke certain ideas in the mind of the audience….infact almost al advertising has “an ulterior motive”. thats what makes people remember the ads and associate with them later in life.

    It has more to indulgence than the taste of the ice cream….
