Amul Hoardings...it can't get butter,coz it's the best!

I love ads…purani, nayi, koi bhi chalegi. Though I am a huge fan of Mentos, Fevicol and Vodafone ads, my all time favorite has to be Amul, no no I am not talking about that Amul chaddi and banianwala ads (eeks I hate those ads), I am talking about Amul butter. The Amul Hoardings occupy a special place in my heart. If you have missed on some imp news, no problem, the amul hoardings would cover those issues in their own ishtyle. Don’t believe me? check these images, I am sure you will love them.



This hoarding was put up after Ratan Tata announced his plans to manufacture the affordable nano cars.

I like Sreesanth. But I wonder kii Sreesanth ko aakhir gussa kyun aata hain?

babuji alert rehna, politics mein zara sambhalna, oh bade dhoke hain, bade dhoke hain is rah mein (hopeless parody from my side)


Boley toh I love this hoarding. It looks cute


The caption 'chai ho' reminds me of bun maska with chai that were available in Iranian hotels. yum yum...i miss them now :(


I love the way Amul plays with words: Butter ko Boot-er bana diya. Now you know why I said Amul hoardings can't get butter sorry better than this?


And finally, this one remains my all time favorite. Loved the way the artist had portrayed the confused eyes.

Haan toh doston, aaj ke liye itna lesson khafi hain. Coming Next: my opinion on news channels and the hungry journos :)

Till then...enjoy this TV commercial of Amul...My mom used to zabardasti make me drink doodh by showing this ad.

lovely post!! i was smiling all through it when i was reading!! :) ...So true, amul ads are one of a kind and so special ads!..

I used to cut out the ad part from the cartons and keep them as a collection wen i was a kid!!each one of them signified some imp development in the country! Such innovative way to attract kids.. true example of "Value Addition" and "Brand Distinction". Sweet Simple and Superb ( Just like the taste of the butter!!)

Again, wonderful post!! write more like these!! its always a pleasure to read ur posts!!

cheers!

Insignia said...

Oops, seemed to have missed out your post...My bad.. I was waiting for one since some time and figured out today..Shucks!!

Anyways, nice post. I love the Amul ads too. They are so innovative and simple, but convey aptly. There was one after which A R Rahman won Oscars for 'Jai Ho'. The ad went like 'Chai Ho'...

Recently there was an ad posted on a billboard which showed tired Indian cricket team after their T20 WC debacle. I forgot the words..

The phrases are catchy and they always pick up the current hot topic.

Quest said...

Got drowned in the downpour? :D or in the high waves of debris ? ;)

Stupidosaur said...

Yeah! Amul ads are the best! And coincidentally the current second post from top on my blog has something related...or not.

pawan said...

There is one spot in Visakhapatnam where these hoardings are put, and as you said these hoardings helped me to understand many complex issues. I happened to befriend one of the painters who paint those ads, and he told me how they drew these hoardings and all.

And here comes the funniest part, I have never tasted Amul Cheese, butter or milk ever in my life!

But as you said, Amul hoardings is something which I cherish for a lifetime!

Great post!
Cheers!

Hi, this is Sugandha this side... read your blog about Amul ads... I am looking for people who have been cllct amul ads and have kept them like a prized possession. If you do it or if you some one like that please let me knw

Post Script said...

Oye, let's go out for an Amul ice-cream !

My friends and I still sing that.

Lovely post.

Kaddu said...

Ha ha ha! 'Eggs & tamatars'! =))

Hopped in from AS' blog. Nice sense of humour... I'm hooked.

And this post brought to surface a lot of old memories! Amul has always been the master of such one-liner ads. I used to actually cut these out from the 500gm packs of Amul butter, and collect them when I was a kid! Had over 2 dozens of such "cards"! :p
