A couple of years ago, TV advts far outscored audio advts on radio (atleast, I preferred the TV advts;-)). Not so anymore, save the Vodafone Zoozoos on TV, there are quite a number of audio advts that catch my eye.. The K7 advertisements on protecting online frauds are good. But the recent brilliant advts on radio are the ones by Uninor.. nicely made, I must say... I heard two of them and will reproduce it for readers' benefit. I heard them in tamil and I must say the English translation may not be as outstanding.... Apparently, the meaning of their logo is "Change".. They sure have changed advertisements on the radio:-)

Conversation of a flat/house owner to a prospective tenant....
Owner to tenant: I have a taken a great liking to you, so, I will waive off the advance! Only add Rs 2000/- to the amount every month on your cheque:-)...
And car parking is totally free! Its open and on the road, down the kerb:-)
And you don't need to pay any money for the electricity! Simply make the payment online:-)
And it says, life is like this, most often, with conditions and riders to everything. But at Uninor...

The second one is between 2 good friends
One friend to the other: I can give my life for you, won't I give you my vehicle? Here, take it, just be careful and don't speed because the break doesn't work:-).. Also, please fuel up as there is no petrol:-). And most importantly, don't use the main road as the vehicle has no papers:-). And it says, life is like this, most often, with conditions and riders to everything. But at Uninor...
