ADVERT REVIEW: MTN SIM PORT RADIO ADVERT -”FAULTY OR FAULTLESS?”



So, I listened carefully to this advert and faulted some aspect of it
(you can click below to listen)

A GUY IS WITH HIS MALE FRIEND ON A PARTICULAR ROAD. SO, THIS GUY IS FINDING IT DIFFICULT TO CONNECT TO A FEMALE FRIEND OF HIS BECAUSE THE NETWORK IS BAD. HIS FRIEND ADVISES HIM TO PORT TO MTN IN ORDER TO REACH PEOPLE AS WELL AS TO BE REACHABLE. HIS FRIEND TELLS HIM THAT COMMUNICATION IS CLEARER WITH AN MTN LINE. THE GUY IS RELUCTANT BECAUSE HIS PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE WITH MTN LINE ISN’T ENCOURAGING. SO HIS FRIEND HANDS HIS PHONE TO HIM JUST TO PROVE THAT MTN HAS CLEARER COMMUNICATIONS THAN OTHER NETWORKS.THE GUY CALLS HIS FEMALE FRIEND AND THE CONVERSATION GOES THUS:

GUY: CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW
FEMALE: I CAN HEAR YOU VERY CLEARLY, WHY DON’T I HAVE THIS YOUR NUMBER, SO U HAVE BEEN KEEPING SECRETS ABI?
GUY: NO, IT’S NOT MY NO
FEMALE: I CAN HEAR SOMEBODY MOVING AROUND NEAR YOU- WHO IS SHE

ACTUALLY I DIDN’T PARTICULARLY SEE WHAT TO FAULT IN THE ADVERT; THE ADVERT WAS FAULTLESS, BUT IF THE FEMALE FRIEND HAD SAID ”I CAN HEAR A FEMALE VOICE NEAR YOU”, THEN I WOULD HAVE FAULTED THE ADVERT. INSTEAD, SHE HEARD PEOPLE MOVING AROUND THE GUY; WHICH IS NORMAL CONSIDERING THE FACT THAT THE GUY WAS ON THE ROAD. THE ONLY ISSUE I HAVE WITH THE ADVERT IS THE FACT THAT THERE WAS NO NOISE AT ALL OR A SOUND OF MOVING VEHICLES. BUT ALL IN ALL, I AM COOL WITH THE ADVERT
