On his last delivery, the customer asks if it was time for him to break his fast and offered him a “Happy Sharing Box”, which the protagonist had just delivered to the house.
3. Zain (Ramadan 2018 Commercial)
This nearly four-minute advert was created by the Kuwaiti telecoms company Zain and has proved highly controversial. While some people called it an “exploitation” of the holy month of Ramadan and “the epitome of commercial opportunism”, others labeled the ad “brilliant”.
It features actors playing world leaders that include Donald Trump, Angela Merkel, Vladimir Putin and North Korea’s Kim Jong-Un, who are shown distressing scenes of refugees around the world by a child, including Syrians and the Rohingya Muslims of Myanmar.
The final scene refers to the teenage Palestinian activist Ahed Al Tamimi, imprisoned for striking an Israel soldier, with a group marching towards the Dome of the Rock singing “our Iftar will be in Jerusalem, the capital of Palestine”.
Advertising a product helps in the growth of the sale but for that the brand has to be sure to keep up with the trends hence, conduct campaigns accordingly.
