So what if there is hullabaloo over banning Blackberry services in India
We will increase the reach
And then let the janta create a hullabaloo to stop the ban
Methinks, this is what they think, what say?
Well, the first time I saw this advertisement, I thought it’s a local cable TV ad Then when I realized that its not, I went ‘eeks!’. A few days later after being subjected to their jingle constantly, I found myself humming along. Yes that’s what it does. It sticks to you like chewing gum. And then you start enjoying it beyond a point. Some things just grow on your with their subtle demeanor. And before you know what’s happening, you are grooving along!
