Omo, Ariel and Persil adverts

An observation… What happened to creativity.Same concept different brands ama they hire the same company to do their adverts… all I see ni watu wakiosha na Nguo na different detergents na kuuliza wamama gani ni deadly…

watu waoee wa ache kufikiria mambo ya sabuni sana

Some products dont need to advertise themselves to us

Most of Unilever and P&G products Tv ads are mainly done in SA and somehow do not resonate with the Kenyan audience…

For instance I really hate that pampers ad with that kid with a very ugly afro… Kwani we don’t have Kenyan kids that can do such an ad?

Persil and Ariel ads are using strange Swahili voice overs making it quite annoying…and they are too similar especially on the tag line; Kufua ni?

there is a myth that all babies are beautiful

Then Geisha brought theirs with a hint it has lemon and Dettol soap “re-energised” theirs with tangerines…

Shooting with kids is so hard. You must have a nanny, an ambulance n a medic on standby n lots of other stuff. Halafu when shooting you must use lights for some scenes na kuna vile hizo films lightd huaffect kids hence you cant expose them to the lights for long. Sometimes pia the kid`s not so looking good mum for video might want to act as the mother so shida tena. Ukiona mtu amemanage to shoot with watoi, jua amepitia mashida kadhaa

sawa… but why not use Kenyans in their ads?

Because the products are manufactured in SA. Its cheap to do a voice over from Zulu language than repeating the same advert in Swahili…

What gets me is that every advert for beauty soap or shampoo, the chic in the shower never gets her face wet let alone her head? yes, yes, black women and their hair, blah blah, but its fucking shampoo!!!

They should use professor bamba to do all the adverts.

Ever wondered why The movie -“The Ghost n the darkness” the one about Tsavo Man eaters or even Kimani Maruge’s movie were shot at south Africa? Shooting in kenya used to be expensive due to heavy taxation by the gova n difficulties in getting licences hence most production houses preferred south Africa which were cheaper. So wakazoea huko. Ama pia the marketing department is based huko

AND WHAT IS IT WITH ALL THE MILK COMPANIES ADVERTS USING KIDS AND THE ADS LOOKING SIMILAR ? AFTER KUACHA CARTOON ZA NGOMBE

…hehehehehe, and a substitute for brake fluid too…
