Waittttt! I don’t have any surprises, not yet! This is just a post about Surprises in general.
So why did I decide to write about Surprise in particular when my life has been going on a boring monotonous journey? Well, its because I chanced upon the latest Tanishq Ad while surfing through various channels. Its an excellent Ad and I was really surprised at the quality of Ads that are shown these days.
Hold on! Are you still wondering which Ad am I referring to?? Here, Go ahead and watch this first!
Now do you see why am I writing a weird post on Surprise, suddenly?
I don’t know about you but I am so much in love with this Ad and the guy Aakash. I just lovee the way he says Happy Diwali – nonchalant yet romantic. I have already seen this lady in a tea Ad and she looks like a woman of principles from outside but a normal dreamy person from within. (Am I assuming too much?)
As you see, its a very simple Ad and I am sure many women in India can relate to it. The super creative Ad maker has captured this Ghar Ghar ki Kahaani so well and that according to me the best part of this Ad. Both actors are so natural and talented.
The Ad features a young couple, dressed ethnic for Diwali. The man gives a Tanishq jewellery set box to his wife and says is colleague got it for his wife. He asks his missus to pen down something sweet on the gift pack. The lady seems to like the jewellery, but tries to reason out saying that they have already planned not splurge on such expensive stuff. While they are having this conversation the husband starts dictating the message that needs to be written and that is when the lady finds out that it was infact a gift for her from her husband. Aww.. how cute 🙂 Because, the husband says, Diwali comes just once a year. The conversation between the two is so life-like and natural that you don’t feel that this has been made up. And the lady’s reaction in the end is absolutely mind-blowing. I always feel you don’t need a big star to promote your brand, as long as the Ad makers are creative.
I have always loved surprises. I love surprising and being surprised.One would always find me calling a random person at 12 Am just to wish them on their birthday or drop in at someone’s just to say a quick Hi and surprise them. Soo, don’t be surprised if I call you when I land in your cities next ;)..Me and Dh used to do many romantic things just to surprise each other. I would make crosswords for him, make a video using Windows Moviemaker, plan a treasure hunt etc. For a change once, I found myself head over heels in love with him when he gave me 25 gifts on my 25th birthday. Oh yes, you heard that right! 25!! And that too from a guy who can’t shop anything without me. He managed to buy 25 gifts, neatly arranged them at his friend’s, took me to his house just before 12 ‘o’ clock and absolutely made my day! I can love him for the rest of my life just for that one surprise although I would love to have many more like that 😉 ( I’m glad he doesn’t frequent my blog these days :P).. He even wrote a cute poem for me , photo-shopped and framed it! Sometimes people surprise us. People we believe we know! And its small surprises like these that keeps the romance going #sweetjoys.
So tell me, did you surprise anyone lately?
Or, did someone surprise you?
P.S:- (Edited) Dh happened to read my blog when he was stuck in traffic and decided to surprise me more! He just bought a Cadburys Celebrations Box..Yaay!!! Maybe I should do more posts like this in future 😛
