This post declares the result of question asked on Distracting Seductress, where the readers were supposed to guess the product featured in the advert. If you are new reader and have not read the earlier post, request you to  see the picture below and go back to read the comments.

We had guesses ranging from condom, beauty cream, hair oil, LCD TV to car batteries to Foor wear to Tamifu tablets.  I personally liked them all, but the most radical guess were ‘MTNL’ and ‘ Global Warming’. Superb imagination !  ( I am surely going to play this game once again for the humour quotient). Till such time this post was being drafted, unfortunately none of the guesses were close enough. However, going by most of the commentor’s opinion,  it is clear that PETA can easily use this  advert for their next campaign, it goes well with it’s current image!

The product is from a very well known company Bisleri and it is – SODA !

[I have given a hint by giving Alchohol as a choice and none picked it up. If you carefully look at the cropped image a portion of the bottle is shown with the fizz bubbles. But I agree this wasn’t easy to guess.]

Bisleri babe

All the trucks that carries out freshly packed Bisleri bottled from it’s Ville Parle factory, abutting Western Express highway, have this advertisement on them.  Every morning, when I see couple of the trucks on the way, there’s a jump in my adrenalin. I actually have driven close  to take the pictures presented below, in sequential manner ! All the pictures are taken using my Nokia E71, while I was managing the wheel amidst heavy traffic.

seductive truckStep One: Spotting the seductress at a distance

soda_seductressStep Two: Changing lanes to drive behind  and focus better

seducing proximityStep Three: A bit close, her eyes are so magnetic…

the last seductionStep Three: The lust picture

The last thing I remember was taking this pic.

Then it all went dark………..

As there was no winner, no one will get the declared  prize. However if anyone is interested in the seductress , he can always contact the ‘ Customer care Number’ given on the ad. I guess they will be informative and helpful.

My key learning- While you are trying to drive in crazy traffic, there is someone seductive who want to drive you crazy and kill you. Don’t fall in her trap. Don’t look at anything distracting while you drive.

So, what is the your  key learning from this advertisement ?

men can drive to any level for a good pop !
~uh~™: Outstanding oneliner ! Expect no less from zulu !

*disgusted look at the ad*
Totally disappointed I am at this answer… Bisleri ad of all the things we guessed.. sigh..

well.. my learning is, Ad makers are also going through idea slump right now! 🙂
*thanks herself for not winning though!:)*
~uh~™: Actually Bisleri, like Benetton is famous for unusual ads. Don’t you remember the raunchy ‘Play safe’ ad on TV ? They always make their product seem like a condom or something very intimate.
Check these out.
Thanks for participating, atleast you had a good exercise for your brain 🙂

uh .. huh ?? unexpected result !! I really expected tamiflu tablets to win 😉
Btw.. ppl driving alongside would have shouted ‘Ek Din marega …..’ at you 😉 what do you think ??

Cheers. 🙂
~uh~™: Not really. remember Bisleri’s earlier ads and correalate with the green colour.
However i personally would love to see tamiflu or mtnl on such ads 🙂
You are right, i killed many because of my adrenalin overdrive :-I

poor men.. so many things out there to kill them… 😉
~uh~™: Vulnerable is the word here 😉

5. Shibani - Wednesday, 19 August, 2009

Damn! No prizes for participation?
~uh~™: Sure ! I can publish your picture on my next post, what say ?

6. Rofl Indian - Wednesday, 19 August, 2009

Are we entitled to a consolation prize?
~uh~™: I can arrange a meeting with other participants demanding consolation prizes. How’s that ?

7. sitaji - Wednesday, 19 August, 2009

~uh~™: you liked it it seems.

8. rads - Thursday, 20 August, 2009

heh, you ought to play more of such guesses. 🙂 .
Though I must say, perhaps the advert’s going for the cool factor. Drink Bisleri soda, be cool like me 🙂

~uh~™: I must. The guessing part was more exciting than the result 😀
err…i found her rather hot than cool.
The tagline could be ‘Add zing to your thing’ ….

9. whatsinaname - Thursday, 20 August, 2009

my key learning is that Nokia E71 is a good phone hmmm
~uh~™: You bet. It’s 3.2 mp with huge zooming capacity!

10. Naren - Thursday, 20 August, 2009

I remember a line from an old American movie in which Rock Hudson (I think) who’s an ad executive, says “Give me a blond in a tight bathing suit and I’ll sell aftershave to a beach bum”.
And for allegedly rational beings, men show an alarming propensity for trying to check out, sometimes at peril to their own lives, things that they cannot possibly copulate with. Explain THAT, Richard Dawkin!
~uh~™: You said it ! Men will be men.
