PART – 2 CUE CARD
Describe an advertisement you dislike the most.
– Name the advertisement
– Where it appears
– Why you dislike it so much
– What your suggestions are
Every advertisement is designed to impress the viewers. But there are some advertisements which are ill-conceived and ill-presented. I dislike the most an advertisement of Fair and Lovely Complexion Centre.
This advertisement tries to distort the facts and emotionally blackmail the innocent and ignorant people. In this advertisement we see a small family which is not fairly well off. Father is shown to be off his job. He enjoys one cup of coffee and demands the second cup of coffee. But his wife bitterly snubs him with these words “How long can you live on your daughter’s income?” the daughter who is wheatish in complexion is not so attractive.
The daughter, to improve the financial condition of her family, starts using Fair and Lovely cream. Just see! She becomes very fair and attractive in just 14 days and gets a lucrative job of an Air Hostess. Now the father is happy that he can take as many cups of coffee as he likes. This advertisement is really befooling the incorrect people.
