    Btw, this is ONE TAG LINE.. which is considered really really good… and teachers of Management always discuss it in their classes!!

    I agree with is a really good tag line which represents the actual target audience of Honda i.e. rural market….by the way…Umar…there has a reponse made to that Honda ad…some Chinese motorcycle manufacturer came up with an advertisement on the TV where in the end guy says:
    ‘Main tay ley vi lyaan’
    which is hillarious how they reply to the Honda…not a good marketing strategy though but sure a humorous one…;)

    Isn’t that tagline ‘Main tay ley vi lyaan’ for that new Raavi Motorcycle? Thats pretty funny. I heard they are beating Honda on price.

    Its a classic….

    a modern example of one of the most successful ads ever created in pakistan.

    Other examples include (ae Khuda meray abbu…State life) (Maz Pan Masala) and if u go further into the past, ull find Farzana Dawakhana.

    as weird as this may sound but Farzana Dawakhana had an ad that lasted less than 10 secs, but was bombarded with such frequency that a lotta ppl just remember it.

    Now people remember either great things , or just irritating ones. This one gained popularity due to its irritating ability!!

    Any one remembers that Master Molty Foam ad “Meri nanhi kali naye ghar ko chali”. Tht was the best

  10. Gibran (unregistered) on November 20th, 2005 @ 8:36 pm

    What about that other little song by Molty Foam…
    Kaam Kaam Kaam, Din Raat Karayin Hum Kaam… and the little kids are running around doing some crap heh

    just felt like sharing this incident with everyone..
    my HR manager (newly returned frm US then) was telling us one day.. actually my company was looking for a hi-fi marketing manager back then.. they dint advertised it in papers and was interviewing people by references.. he said as i quote; i m interviewing alot of people these days and each one of them sayz MAIN TAY HONDA EI LAYSAN !!
    the way he said, everyone burst into laughs..

    Full SOng as I remember:
    Kaam Kaam Kaam,
    Din Raat kare hum kaam,
    jab kaam se thak jaye,
    to khoob karey aaram,
    aaram ka hai naam,
    Diamond Molty Foam

    P.S: I think Marina Ali or some PTV Actress from the late 90s with a similar name, I’m not sure if I remember it right, was in that as a kid.
    Post Post Script: Does anyone remember an ad in Dawn with a man, a woman, a girl and a guy pointing to a computer, also late 90s, I was the boy

    anyone remember “chhota sa ik bacha thha, doodh nahi thha usay pasand…and the super long ding dong ads!!
