I think these ads are terrible - they associate a slightly dark complexion with failure, poor marriage, etc.
They project the feeling that only when you are fair you get good spouses, good jobs, acting careers, friends - pathetic!
In my opinion these ads are equivalent to being racist and need to be pulled off the air.
Someone should tell them that it is an African American who is now going to be the President of the biggest Democracy in the world.

I knew that was coming. I was talking qualitative not quantitative. Democracy is still a joke here.

If you tune in to the music channel 'etc' after midnight, you will see ads of a call girl service being aired with the background song 'Tu, Tu hain wahin'.
Also ads of escort services and erotic/sensual massages are being published on the classified pages of leading newspapers.

Speaking about fairness creams giving a boost to your career, helping you in getting better flames etc. how can we forget the ads of detergents which increase the whiteness of your clothes and are shown to serve the same purposes mentioned above.

It was all started by Mahashay Chuni Lal in Sialkot (my ancestral town, now part of Pakistan).

There are a number of MDH ads featuring this Pagdi aur Moochh Wale Baba!
Another ad (of Dant Manjan) wherein this old man is rubbing his teeth with tooth-powder and then gives a 440 V smile. There is also a alarm cock in the background.

Cheers!!!
