So, finally it’s the time to blog for Phase 3 of #CrashThePepsi IPL activity. Should I be saying the long waited moment has finally come? Oh Yes, Abhi! Yes, this is the moment. Oc course I did wait for the phases of this activity as it is fun to watch the videos made by such talented people and get linked to their thoughts and perspectives but I am sure my wait is nothing in front of these participants who have actually put in so much of hard work and efforts. Moreover it was really an entertaining and learning experience.

1. Buddies –  A real good example of the BFF’s (Best Friends Forever) kind of friendship. The friendly bond that these guys share is so visibly true, it reminds you of your very own BFF’s. A wonderfully emoted depiction of “Friendship”. Some friends are forever. But, a piece of advice the boys in the ad need to learn some manners. They shouldn’t have opened their friend’s handbag without her permission, isn’t it? I mean it could have saved the girl her Pepsi, no? Lolzz! Probably, I am saying so as when I relate it to my friends, I become that girl who looses her Pepsi and who wants to loose it?

2. India celebrates Pepsi IPL – A wonderful message of “Unity in Diversity”. It truly depicts the varied culture and diverse traditions of our country. Amidst all the differences and distinctions, “We are One” is the message delivered through this ad. I think it does somehow inculcate that feeling of patriotism towards the country.

3. Pepsi – Bujhaye Dil ki Pyaas -The first line that struck me after viewing this ad was, “Humanity still exists”. If only in the real world, we, the youth follow and practice such acts of kindness, this world will truly be heaven, isn’t it? To talk on the ground realities, if we pass on this habit of being kind, the world would definitely turn out to be better. Although I really liked the idea, but I am not propagating Salman Khan’s motto of helping three people instead of saying ‘Thank You’, when someone helps you. All I wish is that some more such kind people are there for us to see around. Help people and feel blessed that you are in a state to help. Kindness pays.

This activity, #CrashThePepsi IPL has been real fun all this while. Honestly, it was an amazing experience viewing the varied ad’s and being able to understand the viewpoints and perspectives of some random strangers as to what Pepsi means to them or rather put it as what is their theory or philosophy about Pepsi. Ranging from some romantic to comic, some thrill and excitement oriented to those dealing with boredom, some having deep meanings and some with some social messages, some with a memory attached to it and some claim that there isn’t any other reason to consume Pepsi, rather than Pepsi itself.  All the ad’s had some or the other sentiment attached to it. With due respect to those feelings and the efforts put in by all the ad-makers, below I am listing the two of my favourites. There were many ad’s that I really liked and appreciated but these two could somehow establish that connection –

1. ‘Pyar tujhse karta hu, par Pepsi pe marta hu’ – This phrase means “Yes, I love you, I live for you but I die for Pepsi”

The advertisement is a perfect amalgam of love, romance and nok-jhok (teasing each other), trust and inter – dependence required in any relationship to be ever – lasting. The smiles on the face of the old couple truly depicts that their journey together has been worthwhile. The secret to a happy and successful relationship is to find your own happiness in the other’s smile and this is clearly evident from this ad. The caption in itself is so wonderful and appealing, probably any couple mad in love would be able to relate to this.

2. Pepsi – Lesson of the Day – ‘Verbose – using more words than needed (matlab faltu ki bakwas)’.

I liked the caption more than the ad and as the message it has to convey is to directly come to the point and keep it simple, silly, short and sweet. The adaptation of these 4S’s in our life, can make our lives much simpler and better with lesser tensions and automatically more happiness. Indeed, ‘a lesson of the day’. The message conveyed is to cut short the talks and covey your message as briefly as possible. This ad lives up to the well known saying (Proverb), “Brevity is the Soul of Wit”. It is indeed an art to be able to express your feelings completely and making the other person understand the same with the least usage of words. Following the same, I think I should sum it up and I hope my message stands conveyed to my readers.

I don’t own any credits to be commenting or judging the creativity and innovative thinking of anyone, nor am I doing so. As a part of the activity, I have just written what came to me after watching the ad’s with no intentions to hurt the sentiments of such creative minds. Thanks to all for spreading and sharing laughter and adding that special element of a social message in your ad’s. Here are some of the ad’s that I could connect with a social improvement or social upliftment message or they all had one thing in common i.e. something to learn. I am glad and happy haven seen these.

1. Rajma vs Upma – Unaware of the intentions and the thought process of the makers of the ad, what I interpreted is a simple yet awesome depiction of a deep message of ‘Unity in Diversity’. From North to South, From Kashmir to Kanyakumari, India is One. We are One.

2. Romantic Messages – Every Pepsi has it’s story, whats’s yours? – Indeed, a wonderful caption. And, yes of course for those in love, any object, place or thing might be converted into an instrument of romance, anything and everything could be given a romantic angle, then why not a pepsi bottle?

3. Thirst of the Nation – A wonderfully edited and synchronised video ad depicting the union of all the IPL teams and the country as  a whole. Despite the differences, we stand united.

4. Dishes related to teams – India being a diverse country, having rich variety of food and beverages, all significantly relating to different cultures and backgrounds in different regions. It has been nicely linked to the IPL teams that represent different regions like Dal Baati Churma, Rajasthan’s traditional dish with Rajasthan Royals, South Indian with Chennai Super Kings, Aaloo Parntha with Kings XI Punjab, Delhi Chaat for Delhi Daredevils, etc. and finally all end up having Pepsi in common.

5. We Unite nations – Despite belonging to not just different teams, cultures and backgrounds but also from different countries, they all play together. Seeing the players from different countries playing together not against each other is probably the best part of IPL, depicting the true spirit of sportsmanship. I particularly like this aspect along with the short duration that makes the matches interesting.

6. Girl’s Match – This ad in particular promotes not just Pepsi but also ‘Women’s Cricket’, if seen from my perspective, signifying that girls are no less able and powerful than their male counterparts. They should rightfully be given equal status, of course on merit basis but at least should be treated equally at par with boys. Pepsi doesn’t discriminate them, why do we?

7. Pepsi – Lesson of the Day – ‘Verbose – using more words than needed (matlab faltu ki bakwas)’.

I liked the caption more than the ad and as it correctly depicts, just come directly to the point and keep it simple, silly, short and sweet. These 4S’s if adopted in life, can make our lives much simpler and better with lesser tensions and automatically more happiness. Indeed, ‘a lesson of the day’.

8. Buddies – (BFF – Best Friends Forever) A very lively and realistic presentation of the beautiful relation called ‘friendship’. Friends might have some level of formality between them but with buddies, it just god this way, isn’t it? It just brought some memories from my heart to my mind and I realised that are as fresh as ever.

1. Burrrp  – A great idea for all the male cricket fans (boyfriends/husbands for that matter)  who aren’t allowed to watch matches by their female counterparts as they have some silly (from a male perspective, though I do not watch, still) daily soap of theirs lined up. I mean like, wow, does this really work?

2. Kuchh Bhi Ad – If going by the ad directly, it seriously is a “Kuch Bhi Ad” (Kuch bhi means the meaning of which is unclear). But, if I go by the spirit, they have taken it in the truest sense as their only motto seems to be having Pepsi.

3. Vampires – Blood v/s Pepsi – A very professional looking ad, editing and acting at it’s best among all the ad’s that I happen to see. Also, it has an amazing and different thought process, along with wonderful costumes..lolzz.

4. Mera Secret – The latest technique to hire an auto-rickshaw is shown in this ad. I mean, should I say to hire an auto or to impress your girl friend. Is auto-hiring so difficult by normal means and so convenient using a pepsi bottle. Before the pepsi, he needs to take money home to buy some food for him and his family. And, are girls so impressed by being able to hire an auto, really? No harsh feelings but truly imagination has no limits.

5. Bolti band (to put locks to ones mouth when he/she is speaking) – All boys should definitely take resort to this ad, especially if they have a chatter-box kind of a girlfriend. You won’t get a better idea to shut her mouth and save yourself the pain. I just couldn’t stop laughing.

6. Atithi Devo Bhav – In Indian customs and traditions, we consider ‘Guests as God’, that’s what ‘Atithi Devo Bhav’ means So when some guests pay visit, it is customary to serve him with some good food and drinks as a part of hospitality.  The man in the ad had truly caught on the literal meaning of this saying. Yes, we serve them as it’s out tradition but with our favourites, we become a bit selfish..lolz. Honestly and frankly speaking, I just loved those set of glasses that he bought from the market to save that extra sip of Pepsi. What an idea, sirji?

7. Khushiyo k liye no logic – Truly said, there shouldn’t be any reason to be happy, that’s the secret to be happy always. And, this ad is so natural and realistic in all perspectives, in Indian society. It is a common scene in any household or friend’s circle watching cricket together. You might call it being superstitious but for cricket fans, this works.

8. Ofcourse it’s Pepsi – The usage of a cookery show’s idea to test the taste buds is really different and an amalgam of pepsi with the traditional masala’s and cooking style is innovative. Possibly, some cooking cum cricket fans must also have tried this. Am i planning to do so somewhere at the back of my mind, I don’t know? Probably, yes.

9. Ek cutting Pepsi – A refreshing and cost effective idea for big offices and corporates. Also, an innovative tag-line, ‘Ek cutting Pepsi’ instead of ‘Ek cutting Chaii’.

10. Pepsi-Deal – No wonder if the charm of Pepsi stays this way and increases at the speed it is increasing, a day would come when Pepsi would be smuggled.

11. Blind Date – Love is blind and a set of such blind dates is a perfect chance to grab your pepsi, isn’t it?
