19 Of The Smartest Indian Ads Ever. They Will Blow Your Mind. WOW!

Fun India

You are about to learn the exact definition of ‘clever advertising’. We know that advertising in India doesn’t sell if it doesn’t  involve ‘Khans’ or ‘sex’. It needs a lot of creativeness to compete in this tough advertising market and to catch the eyeballs of mass audience. While not many companies can do it, some pull it off perfectly without investing much.

Earlier, we had done ‘worst advertisements‘ and we think these billboards and print ads need your attention too, because they are creative, intelligent, meaningful, and they will completely blow your mind. Here are some of the best Indian ads ever in the history of advertising.

1. You don’t need to spend much on advertising if you are super intelligent, and Naukri proved it.
