Pakistan’s Evergreen And Catchy Ads

It is unfortunate for Pakistan’s advertising world that current ads are not everlasting and lack that recall-able factor; unlike the tvcs which we used to have back in 8’s and 90’s. In the current scenario we are shown with TVCs which are either pulling the legs of competitor brands or copying Indian and Korean advertisements minus their emotional value. The below average one-liners, tag lines and jingles are the reason why ads today do not give a lasting impression. The creative zing is missing big-time. We have better technology, more educated and qualified work force and a great backing of research but even then the advertisements which are created lack freshness and attention grabbing elements.

On social media and electronic media these TVCs are flooded but eve then they require huge support from branding team and PR partners to make them “Hit”. Earlier it was not like that, a TV commercial used to stand out purely on the basis of its merit and hardwork applied by the entire team.

Following are some TVCs from Pakistan which used to be quite famous and are still remembered as the finest ones. They were never based on pulling competitors legs; the creators of these TVCs were decent and qualified enough to create something out of research, team-work and dedication.

There were many other TVCs which were delight to watch. The ads are directed towards customers to consume products or services along with creating a good brand image which plays a significant role in brand positioning. It’s about time that we start creating better advertisements and don’t play dirty games by pulling down competitors.
