Happy Independence Day India!

Okay, so I'm completely re-doing this post. I had posted my favorite Youtube videos of the Indian anthem and national song. But as things go on Youtube, I found something that is a truer representation of India for me. An India that is not afraid of laughing at itself.

Happydent Chewing Gum

The chorus in the background goes: If your heart is lit bright, and your mind is lit bright, then the whole world is lit bright. Smile! Sparkle!

  1. *applause*I LOVE that!!!!! What a super ad — and a neat representation — thank you so much for sharing it — and Happy Independence Day, to India!

    Thank you..I LOVE the brains behind the ad, and how they gave it a mock-colonial era feel. Very cool.

  3. It was something that made me look, and wonder, and SMILE – -which is really neat, you know?

    I just re-read my comment and it came out all wrong! I could figure out from your post that it was Independence day, but I did not understand the language (bahasa?) in that post (not your blog). Sorry..
