As you like it 1

Wear short skirt.
Hitch hike.
Conserve fuel.


Confused? Actually it’s an ad for the new avatar of Shopper’s Stop that I saw on a hoarding in Hyderabad. Now that the courts have banned hoardings in Chennai I amuse myself by checking out the craziest and the most absurd elsewhere. Coming back to the headlines they were above a girl appropriately flaunting her legs for a ride from a gawking motor biker.

The ad guys must think this to be great tongue in cheek advertising.

Googled the tagline and found this.. And guess what Saving the environment and yet being stylish is the underlying theme.





Came via SMS – “Can you believe they are still together after all the shit that has happened between them for all these years.
Who?


















… your @$$ cheeks!!!!"



Hey! Maybe the ad guys are right. This is tongue in cheek advertising.

The girl's wearing hot pants man!! Try that in Chennai! lol! But totally agree with you, my brother is in the same business and I have seen some real tongue-in-cheek ones from him!! One poster put up in a certain place for a basket ball tournament - Two basket balls, one net and the punchline -"Bounce those balls"!! lol!!
