A while back I lamented the fact that the suits at NDTV decided to cut off the Indian ads when they beam the signal for NDTV 24/7 to those of us living off the Subcontinent.
Instead, they subjected us to loop after loop after loop of the same, same, same, same clips of their various reporters. If I wanted to get my fix of Indian TV ads, I had to turn to MTV India, but it still felt like something was missing.
Well this morning, all of a sudden I noticed from the kitchen that I heard Madhavan and Vidya Balan discussing if they’d turned off the light before they left, and just as the moment my head snapped around to see the TV screen, it hit me: the ads were back on NDTV and this was one in the popular Airtel series of the couple!
In addition to Airtel’s services, other products being promoted now are Garnier hair dye for men, motorbikes, low cholesterol food, and some kind of home repair material.
