Don’t Mauritians have enough talent to make beautiful commercials?
Of course they can. Mauritians are a very talented people. Never make the mistake of underestimating them 😛
Why don’t they make Beautiful Commercials?
Why spend energy and time making beautiful commercials when crappy ones serve their purpose perfectly. The aim of commercials is to make people aware of a particular product rather than just pleasing our eyes. While people are watching a movie, the commercials just break up and the people re obliged to watch anything either pleasing or non-pleasing – they do not enough time to change the channel.
So, are Ugly Commercials more efficient than beautiful ones?
Yes. Infact, Ugly ones become popular more quickly in Mauritius . When they are released, you hear people talk about how ugly they with their friends.
– Personne 1: “Eh, ton get sa reclam lor sensibiliter dentaire la?”
– Personne 2: “Wi ta. Mari villain sa. Mari gopia sa boug la. LOL”
– Personne 3: “Ene nuvo reclam sa? Bizin ale get sa ene kout la. Pu gagne mari riyer”
The buzz created by such ads is bigger those beautiful ones which require much creativity and energy to create. Some people even blog about it.
Aren’t the Mauritians fed up with these?
Many Mauritians are subscribed to satellite TV(Canal Satellite, Parabol Maurice). Youngsters spend most of their time on Facebook.
Such people do not watch MBC at all except for the 19:30 news on MBC 1.
Do you expect grandmaz who watch “tulsi” get on street to protest about these ads? No one has seen the future though. Lets hope the situation might change 😀
