IPL 2018: 5 best ads in the history of IPL
The Indian Premier League is definitely India ka tyohaar, as the action isn't limited to the cricket field. The promotional events, social media interactions, fan activities, cheerleaders and much more are as much a part of the IPL as are the players and the matches. It qualifies to be a complete entertainment package with quick games, record-breaking performances and overachieving advertisements.
Just like any other film or TV show, IPL season starts off with a proper trailer. In each season, the makers ensure a theme for the ads and they've proven to be catchy all the time. This time, Star Sports have gone with the idea of 'Best vs Best' with the ads highlighting 'sher se sher bhidega toh sher hi jeetega' (literal translation would be - if a lion takes on a lion, the emerging champion would be a lion itself).
With few hours left to the 11th edition of the IPL, here's looking back at 5 of the best IPL ads of all times...
#1 Vodafone ZooZoo
The most vital part of IPL season is the Vodafone's ZooZoo ads. These little creatures were included in IPL's ads since the second edition of the league, in 2009. The ads were shot by Bengaluru based Nirvana Films in Cape Town, South Africa, directed by Prakash Varma. They shot the first set of ZooZoo ads in a record time of 10 days.
It was definitely a hit among the Indians who absolutely loved the goofiness and alien language that was used in the ads. Today, there are more than 200 pages and a fan base of over 2.5 lakhs, growing by the minute, dedicated to them.
