Advertisements rule the world, and drive buyers crazy — it makes us buy things which we may never use in our life (Yeah, that’s how stupid we get at times!). Then there are those ones that make no sense at all. They are completely ridiculous and we fail to understand what purpose they serve.

Let’s have a look at some Indian advertisements that, at the lack of more cohesive phrasing, will make you go “What @%#&$*$($($?!”.


Chappals to the Rescue

Have you ever heard of someone who decided to wear a pair of chappals while visiting the Alps? Or any snowy terrain for that matter? That’s exactly what Sallu Bhai does in a Relaxo ad. But wait, the best is yet to come. The pair of chappals not only helps him trod through the snow like a pro, but also saves the damsel-falling-off-the edge.

So what are you waiting for? Chuck your boots, ‘cause you’ve got chappals to the rescue! And who on earth cares about frost bites?


What an Idea!

There’s has been much talk about ever-rising university cut-offs, even on The Quint. If only people thought of turning to this Idea ad and get everything resolved. IIN is Idea’s answer to all those who want be educated in anything under the sun, without going to an educational institution. Who needs colleges when you got IIN?


King of the World

Alexander the Great almost conquered the world. Almost. But alas, he didn’t have access to Rajnigandha. If he did, as the protagonist of this Rajnigandha ad exhibits, you could have expected epic awesomeness! Rajnigandha is the magic masala you need to achieve superhuman feats, or so the ad suggests.


Chocolate Facial, Anyone?

The next time your mom expresses displeasure at your horrid table manners, show her this Cadbury ad where people are not just eating chocolate, but also slathering themselves with it. Chocolate was meant to, and should be consumed when it is at its melted-best, with copious amounts dripping all over yourself.


Yeh Andar ki Baat hai!

When it comes to underwear, keep it literal, kyunki yeh andar ki baat hai!

If you go by this Lux Cozi ad, underwear can save you from grenades to evil charms!


Scent of a Man

“Spray s**t loads of deo on yourself” is the only criteria to impress a woman, gentlemen, if you go buy this Wild Stone ad. All the guy needed to get the woman entangled in his charms is a bottle of deo emptied on himself. So keep your manners, sensibilities and good will at home, and spray in abundance before you step out for the night.
