On this episode, Antariksh is joined by fellow producer Vishal, and Ambi Parameswaran, host of 'The Sponge podcast', co-host of 'The Last Brand Standing' podcast, Founder of Brand-Building.com, brand strategist, veteran ad-man with over 35 years of experience, and a fellow pop-culture nerd! Antariksh and Vishal pick Ambi's brain about the most controversial ads, what makes an ad supposedly controversial, some famous ads that were not taken to well, like the famous Tuff Shoes print ad with a naked Milind Soman and Madhu Sapre, the Tanishq ad from earlier this year that got twisted by trolls, Myntra's troubles in a similar regard, and lots more. Ambi also talks about working with Doordarshan back in the day, the famous 'United Breaks Guitars' song, why it seems like some companies like Zomato like to court controversy, and tons more. They also discuss some of their favurite ads ever - like Indica v2, Happydent, the recent Cadbury gender swap cricket ad, the Bisleri ad with camels, and more.
Also, don't miss some awesome recommendations where Ambi recommends the Tamil movie 'Sarpatta Parambarai', the tv series 'Navarasa', and author Sujata Massey's books. Vishal recommends the Lallantop YouTube channel and their series called 'Duniyadaari', and Antariksh recommends 'Free Guy' starring Ryan Reynolds.
