Model Answer

Introduction :
Well, in my perception, advertisement is the only key for the manufacturing companies to reach out its customer base. And what could be more better than a heart touching or thought provoking adverts. Undoubtedly, we are flooded with a plethora of commercial adds. We see or hear them on television, the internet, radio, newspaper and so on.

What is it? and What happens in it?
However, I personally believe that the advertisement flashing on the television is extremely influential and interesting. Although I have seen several breathtaking or funny adds in my life, one advert which is coming off the top of my head is a detergent powder add, i.e., Nirma, which I saw almost five years ago during a commercial break of a daily soap.

What happens in it?
This add gravitated my attention as it started with four women, nicely dressed in squeaky clean clothes, stopped their car to help the people stuck in an ambulance in a muddy puddle. All four girls jumped in the pit, without giving a second thought to rescue the stuck ambulance and they succeeded in their selfless motive and saved the day. Whereas the men stood and watched as they didn’t want to get stained.

By looking at their incredible effort, everyone applauded, while the strong men were embarrassed as they were of no help when it was need of the hour. Later, in the end, it was revealed that it was a washing detergent add.

Conclusion :
Anyways, I was really impressed by this advertisement as it features a strong message of women empowerment.
