Kya aapko K.I.L.B. hai ???

Nowadays, a new ad is making the buzz....

Irfan Khan dressed as a doctor,helps an elderly person who is stumbling, to his chair in his clinic..

"K.I.L.B. chhune se nahi failta... maine chhuya, faila kya?? " he asks the viewers...

At the first sight, it comes down as just another AIDS awareness campaign, like the famous "Balbir pasha" ad that was aired a few years ago... (My friends and I had turned it into B-pasha... or Bipasha... :D )

But I think it is more than that...
Irfan Khan, currently a brand ambassador for the Vodafone, I think is advertising here for the Iphone to be launched on the Vodafone and Airtel networks later this month...

But I really love this funda of advertising...

We had been seeing ads like Digen Verma's frooti ad, "where's the pulp" ad, etc...
Initially, a curiosity is been generated in the market, and later the brand is launched...
Surely, a buzz is going on about what is "K.I.L.B." ??!!

The first ones to ask me were of course, aji and aai....
They thought it was some sort of a disease or something, like AIDS, especially since he is dressed in an apron and OT gowns...
I know my medical knowlege is quite rusty, and i had not licked each and every page of Harrison... But K.I.L.B. ??? I had not even accidently heard this term in my medical school or the hospital... So I knew, this was meant to make a big ch***ya of all the people... LOL...

Here are the ads if You havent seen them...







Hmmm...
I think what K.I.L.B. stands for is... "Keemti Iphone Leneka Bukhaar"
and with Vodafone coming out with special offers for the same :D

well, thats what I think, What is your take??

P.S. Just got to know what KILB stands for... ;)

Rather than keemti i phone leneka bukhaar it shud be "Keemti I phone Leneki Beemari" coz beemari chune se failti hai n not bukhaar...watsay?

@anonymous

Yeah it would had been what u said, but see the ad carefully, he says "KILB Chhune se nahi failtA..." and not "failtI"....

Bukhaar failega... Beemari failegi ;)
