Is it just me or is there anyone else that finds this advertisement of Bamba decoders too boring? Must advertisers use ethnic connotations for people to buy? Those in the advertising industry and especially those working with Scanad please enlighten us more. I think there is no creativity at all generally in the advertising industry or is it because there is no feedback or criticism for their work?

That is very true @Deorro, @fishmonger ....simplicity. But should ethnicity replace creativity. Take for instance the faiba ads. Are the ads trying to be funny or are they targeting specific tribes with the shagzmodos accent, like if you want to sell something to the luhyas you have to use chicken somewhere.

currently trending on social media are the luhya jokes and memes . creative people will ride on that wave

If you want your advert to succeed in Kenya, keep the concept as basic as possible (coz Kenyans don't want to think), add as much humour as possible (like Faiba), but most importantly, make sure it has as much sex appeal as possible.

Sex is used to sell even cooking oil!

Yaani we put sex in everything mpaka our condoms ads are famous worldwide!

And this is how you sell a dog on OLX!

You dont have to love the advert. it just has to be memorable. when you go to the shop, you will only buy familiar stuff(stuff that rings a bell) regardless of whether you hated or loved the advert
