MUMBAI: Move over political parties, election fever has gripped brands as well! As if political outfits telling people how they’ve changed their lives for the better wasn’t enough, we now have brands doing the honors. And while they may be performing a good deed in urging viewers to step out and cast their vote, not all brands that are piggybacking the polls seem to have got it right. Here’s taking a look at the election-based ads doing the rounds of television currently…

Fevicol uses crazy chairs as a symbol

Known for its clever, tongue-in-cheek advertisements, Fevicol’s latest too does not disappoint. A chai-wallah enters the shop of a carpenter who is making the next prime minister’s chair. He points out to three variations – one with BJP’s lotus, another with Congress’s hand, and a group of chairs joined unevenly symbolic of the Third Front. The advert is a pun intended on the politicos vying for power.

RR Kabel poses a straight question

Coming from a hardware brand, the advert comes straight to the point and tells voters to “choose wisely”. However, it does hit the right chord with a strong line of communication.

Idea warns politicians ‘no ullu banoing’

A typically smart-alecky advert coming from Idea, which is in sync with the brand’s punch-line, ‘no ullu banaoing’ even as it sends out a message to politicos not to fool the junta.
