The Pepsi IPL began on April 8th, and the whole of India is now divided by the jersey colour of their favorite teams. Apart from nail biting games of cricket, Pepsi IPL is about glamour, big brands, seeing and being seen. For the first time in the history of the game, Pepsi is giving fans a chance to #CrashThePepsiIPL – make video ads that will be seen by the whole country during the Pepsi IPL matches.
Now, Pepsi and BlogAdda are giving you an opportunity to #CrashThePepsiIPL in your own way by blogging about video ads!
For the first time in India, bloggers will choose their own theme and blog about it. All you have to do is blog about your thoughts, experiences or ideas about video ads, no holds barred!
But yes, we are looking for the quirkiest, funniest and CRAZIEST blog posts on the topic, so throw your inhibitions out of the window and get blogging!
Love ‘em or hate ‘em, you can’t ignore ads. They are everywhere – from TV to the Web, and come in all shapes and sizes. Which is a good thing, because more the ads, the more you can blog about them.

A Rat’s Nibble – Crash The Ipl with Pepsi : Of Your Choice
New post on my blog: Top 5 Ads I Can’t Get Out Of My Head
I love commercial breaks. Unlike my wife and two children who have trouble sitting through them, I don’t find ads boring or annoying. In fact some of the most creative ads get more eye balls than you can ever think of and often get talked about at social dos.
Here’s a proof.
Remember the old yet classic Pepsi commercial starring Aamir Khan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, and Mahima Chaudhry. Directed by the leading Indian ad film director, Prahlad Kakkar, this ad took the nation by storm as everyone wanted to know who the blue-eyed, sassy Sanjana was. Aishwarya’s punch line in the ad “Hi, I’m Sanjana, got another Pepsi?” caused a big stir, and the rest as they say is history.
This Alien Never Sleeps
“The alien smiled and replied, ‘The taste of India is in the slogans here and not the monuments or the jalebis or samosas.’ I nodded in agreement. Ads, both in the av-media as well as the print media were fast forming and framing every kind of conversation we were having. Just go out in the streets and you’ll find even the common street Romeo lustily calling out, ‘Fresh n juicy’ as he stalks the girl next door. Taste the thunder and reclaim your life are used by students of even the primary classes in their essays. Yes sir, ads have not just besieged us but over-run our subliminal senses, conquered our minds, and made our day-to-day language of communication full of punches that are lifted from ads.”
Those favourite Ads! https://theteacerebration.wordpress.com/2015/04/12/our-favourites/
