The advertising fraternity of Pakistan has a lot to be proud of and even more to be embarrassed about. Recently, some shockingly creative (get the hint) ads have been making rounds on social media.
These local ads are so funny that they make you feel like crying more than they make you laugh. If you are wondering how dreadful these commercials are, or if you think that we are exaggerating, well we speak with evidence.
The following are possibly some of the worst commercials to come out of Pakistan.
Local Rental Car Service
Hold your heart and take a deep breath before watching:
Kit Kat Talcum Powder
Want a good hearty laugh? Kit Kat Telcum Pooder to your rescue!
Tesko Paan Masala
Is it just me or is it really weird to have betel nut when you feel thirsty or have a sore throat. Also, choosing a religious scholar as an endorser for this? De-branding much?
Johnny & Jugnu Shaami Burger
Dressed up as ‘saperas’ and selling burgers? only Waseem Hassan Sheikh can think of that! This one will surely make you laugh.
Do you want your stalker’s butt to be kicked by a soap? Yes? Bodyguard soap to your rescue then.
‘Cozy Haleem Yaara, Zaika Hai Iska Pyaara’- This rendition of ‘Mehendi Laga K Rakhna’ will leave you rolling on the floor with laughter.
‘Qamar Cha, Wah Bhai Wah.’ God, I missed the whole point of this commercial.
Nargas Beauty Careem
One tube solution to pimples, dark circles, blackheads, kali shakal, dry lips, occasional headaches, dual-personality complexes, measles, road rage, and even AIDS. But you would never want to use it because you don’t want a traffic jam now, do you? Don’t get it? Watch the video.
Faiza Beauty Cream: ‘Naam Tou Achaaa Hai’
During the whole one minute 30 seconds ad, I can only think of one thing; was the weird music in the background and those perverted facial expressions in the beginning really necessary?
Yadgar Desi Atta
Apart from being very sexist, it is very illogical as well. Is there nothing more to life than desi atta’s gol roti?
What are the ingredients to a ‘hit’ TVC? A catchy tone from some Bollywood flick? Dancing guys holding phones? The presence of nobody special and absolute idiocy? Yep, you got it!
Josh Condoms (ft. Mathira)
My eyes!!! I am scarred for life.
Treet Kala Blade
Treet Kala – Shave Banaey Bohut Aala! The journey of a man – from a Neanderthal to a modern-day Playboy!
Al-Shaikh Fan Chowk Chobor Jee, Nuff said!
