The Ada Ad – 199 ? 19.9 ? 19.9.2004 ?

[Click on the image to enlarge it]

Does that seem confusing ? It really is. This Ada !! Ad that has been overworking on every Chennaite’s brain for the last month, is finally going to be out on 19 Sep 2004.

When it intially appeared as Ada !! in the top of the ad and 199 at the bottom, everyone thought it was a prepaid mobile service ad. But after a few weeks, Ada ver 2.0 released, number 199 mentioned below was changed to a decimal 19.9. Today’s papers sport the Ada ver 3.0 that has the date 19.9.2004. So finally on the 19th, the secret will be unleashed and chennaite’s can stop thinking!!.

We have had several Ads in the recent future like this like the famous Hutch Ad which came with just a Hi !! on the boards, the most famous AIDS prevention Ad Pulli Raja and ofcourse the Suryan FM. My intiall guess was that it was a Pothys Textile Ad because it has the Pothys green in the background. Then when I saw the number 199, I thought, like others, it was a pre-paid mobile service Ad. Now, I’m clueless. I am still waiting to find out what it is. One more pic on lazygeek photoblog.

Only guesses in the comment box, Please. And hey, by a freak chance, if you are the Ad maker, or connected to this Ad company please dude, restrain from commenting. Let the guesses flow through.

This is one real Ada ad!!.

    The font somewhat reminds me of Ananda Vikatan or Kalki (not clear which one) 🙂

    Chandra Choodan’s site is down. He said that he has emailed the hosting guys and he is waiting for a reply. He is also unable to re-direct the domain to his old blogcity account.

    Looks like he’ll back soon. Enna CC ?

    probably yes, iterative end.

    I still think it is the Reliance Infocomm guys with a 1.99 re call to any where in the world with a Rs. 199 plan to be unveiled on 19.9.2004

    I thought it was one of those FMs again, to be unveiled on 19/9/’04. The idea seems to be working though. Hutch was a good one.

    my bet is that it is vikatan fm or something.

    Looks like Ananda Vikatan is the most popular choice. Let’s see.

    If it was only Vikatan, I would complain the color wasn’t all that good, given Vikatan’s nice choice of colors.

    Prabhu, If only …
