Gandhi thatha smiling at IPL Marketing
The IPL has taken cricket marketing to levels unknown to man. Be it Strategy breaks, beauty contest, dancing beerleaders aka cheerleaders or human billboards, it has literally cashed in on every opportunity, even toilet paper will contain DLF IPL emblem. It will be evident now that i don't give a damn to this type of marketing. Like it or not we have to put up with this nonsense.
Let me start with "stratallergy breaks". This is the most evident maal making idea of IPL. It was an allergy to everyone but for the advertisers.
I dug deep and found out what happens during this maal time.
- Strategy discussion for exactly 50 seconds [ only meaningful thing]
- Loosen their abdomen guard and scratch itches in the body
- Drink some Gatorade[ actually they do that literally every over]
- Answer some stupid questions from even more stupid comperes [ the Chinese guy Chang is a good example]""Presenters:
- Break [ Ads=money]
- Call up some player from bench irritate him
- Break[more ads=more money]
- Ask fans to shout and speak highly of Lalit money Modi
- Play repeat of IPL donating money
- Once again break [ once again ads= once again maal]"
Next comes the candid terms coined and shamelessly uttered by the commentators like "citi moment of suckses", " DLF mixiemam" and some other pathetic terms. Apparently they are planning to have special names for shots, like Dhoni's shots as inalsa mixie shots [ the company has shutdown and so has dhoni's shot making skills] .
"Future lambs to be slaughtered by Brands in their names
and many more"
- M.S dhoni= Aircel Phoni
- Aila Tendular=Idea Tendulkar
- Malinga= Sakhti mangalinga
- Symonds=King'Fisher' Symonds
- Bret lee=Milka Bread Lee
- Harbhajan=Havellswire Singh
- Yuvraj Singh= Nivaran 90 cutting Singh
Ask Money Modi why?
Reply:I wont be surprised if Mr Money asks players to Pachai Kuttify (Tatoo) brand names in their arm. Surely Gandhi thatha is smiling.
"our aim is to merge cricket and entertainment,money making and shot making."
Inner meaning:( for unenlightened people)
"U fools we are here to destroy ICL, making money and of course some cricket. It is the golden egg laying duck"
