My Rant on Dettol Kitchen & Slab Gel Advertisement

If you haven’t watched the new dettol ad, take a look here. It’s in tamil, this is the only one I got on youtube:

Did you guys see the new dettol ad? The wifey comes home to find her husband planning a surprise dinner for her and washing the dishes. And what do you expect the wifey’s reaction? According to me, she should have a real sense of appreciation in her eyes and reward the hubby with a warm hug. Instead, you know what she does?? Takes a tablet and shows the husband how still germs are around after much cleaning. Huh??  And then goes on to tell him that dettol is the way to go for a smarter kitchen. Finally she laughs off and the ad ends.

Being a lady, I really find this ad stupid and offensive.  If your husband plans a surprise, do you really pick on him for things like these? Then you don’t need dettol, you need some help. And as far as the hubby is concerned, I don’t think he will plan any surprise and get himself a nasty shock.  I believe that these kinds of ads, with whatever good intentions are made – will surely get criticism from both hubby and wifey.

What do you guys think?
Have a good day and keep rocking!!
