Piyo sar utha ke………Sorry mate, I prefer straw while drinking
I do hope everybody amongst you remember this punch line, recent addition to advertisement campaign of a soft drink major. It is featured here because I had to point my gun at someone (see the picture above). Why not grab attention by grinding something that is winning kudos otherwise, at least in Indian advertising world, which is seemingly always in dearth of creativity. How else would you justify sapera ads of King Khan and beauty care ads banking on monotonous line, kya mein bhi gori ho sakti hoon?
Well, coming to the topic, I don't know ‘bout generation x, y, z or for that matter a or ß , how much pride they take in their brand of sweetened carbonated drink, and boast I am oh, so proud of it'? But our national hero Mr. Mangal Pandey, associates with this Indian product very well and his head is always held high and heart swells with pride while consuming an elixir with phosphoric acid as active ingredient. And, its pH is 2.8. You don't have to be a chemical engineer to understand that it will dissolve a nail in about four days and is a major contributor to the increase in cases pertaining osteoporosis.
Above mentioned Facts (which are result of my own ingenuity and experience in filling answer sheets) apart, I can putforth an idea that this particular brand of soft drink can actually be used for good. Why not use it to cure people suffering from spondylitis. As per company's claim, I hope it's authentic, head is held high (almost 45 degree as per my estimates) while drinking their brand of soft drink. So, why not keep patients on its continuous dose and bingo you have a perfect posture. And it will also save you from the fuss of enclosing your neck in a collar which makes people look more like new product arrivals with detachable heads.
I think you must have had enough, but a warning was given while accepting visitor's agreement. I intend to, in fact I am hell bent on making you laugh but you must've realized by now that I have my own intellectual limitations. Bear me and keep laughing.
