WTF??? 9X Fairness Cream ad sucks. X(

I don’t like normal “fairness cream” ads. I consider them to be a stupid fuck-off. But this ad for “9X Fairness Cream” has really made me see red.

The ad shows some woman meeting her friend at the airport and commenting on her “blemished” face. She hands a “9X fairness cream” thingy. The girl goes all soppy and applies it. Wonder of Wonders. . . In 9 seconds Not only does her skin become “fairer” and “blemish-free” but her hair also turns blond 😯

All right, so far it’s just another crappy fairness ad but then scene goes back to the airport. . .

She Sneers at that friend( That’s gratitude for you πŸ™„ ) goes to the passport counter and the dumb prick seated there says. . .

“Foreign Passport that side ma’am ”

The “woman” replies ” mazaak chodiye ji, mai to hindustani hoon” (Stop Joking, I am an Indian)

And the guy is shocked.

End of Ad. 😑 😑 😑

What the bloody fuck does this mofo company want to imply? That being a “fair foreigner” is superior to being a “dark-skinned Indian”?

And our dear Information Minister Priyaranjan Das Munshi spends his time banning FTV and AXN and similar stuff to “preserve” our “moral fabric”. Bullshit. Stupid pricks can’t even function properly.

Gaah.

NOTE:: An alternate version of the ad has the woman saying at the end “Oho! Tussi Ki Keh rahe ho ji” while making weirdo coquettish movements.

  3. Suki Says:

    Ack.

    The “dumb blondes” of the West might be pleased to see it, though.
    Personally, I can’t be bothered any more.

    Hi.. while this is an ad for 9x the new tv channel. I agree that the fairness creams have always had terrible/cliched concepts.

    Here’s a new concept:

    Let me know what you think about this.

  15. neelakantankk Says:

    Some teaser. πŸ˜›

  16. Sameer Says:

    Lol…It was a Parody.

  17. JJ Says:

    It’s a spoof ad, people.

    Bloody hilarious too, I loved how they took the micj.

  18. lala Says:

    Lol, you know its a parody from the 9x channel in india

  19. Amy Says:

    Glad I found that this is a spoof. I was just about to make an ass of myself by ranting about it on Facebook. Decades ago, my father visited India and was saddened to see fathers advertising their daughters for marriage as being of ‘whitish complexion’.

    My half Indian friend just got married in both a stunning white dress and a sari to reflect all of her heritage – she looked amazing. I’ve always been jealous of her tan but she really shone on her day. People need to celebrate what they’re born with.

    • Amri Says:

      It probably said ‘wheatish complexion’ which means dark. People in India don’t say ‘whitish complexion’, they say ‘fair complexion’.

  20. Nirmal Says:

    Dude….its a spoof done for a TV channel…how dumb are u…..I am tired of people who just can’t wait to go online and write shit on their blog without actually doing a proper research.

    Now that I have wasted five minutes of my precious time going through ur stupid blog and replying to it, let me get back to my research on fairness cream.
