ADVERT REVIEW: BAMA MAYONNAISE “THIS ADVERT DOESN’T TEACH CONTENTMENT!”


ADVERT REVIEW: BAMA MAYONNAISE- “WHAT’S YOUR EXCUSE?”
Well, I surely do have a lot or should I say I have issues with this advert…

First is that this advert doesn’t teach contentment and I sincerely hope that no kid watched this advert without a parental guidance in order tell the child what exactly he or she should and shouldn’t pick out from the advert, which the advert failed to do.

In as much as I love the acting of the children in the video as well as the advert concept, the ending however already put a dent in the advert. In a world where children are easily misled, I suggest this advert should be revisited. It should be edited in such a way that the other boy was later discovered, scolded or punished for telling lies and lack of contentment. If this is done, the message of the advert will still be passed across “For Bama, children can do anything”

THE ADVERT

At the beginning of the advert, a woman is seen preparing her son’s school meal in the kitchen and at the same time hurrying him so he doesn’t go late to school. She garnishes his bread and then adds Bama to it. She then packs it into his lunch bag.

In school, during lunch time, the boy- Boy A brings out his food to eat but notices his friend- Boy B staring at him. Boy A asks boy B what happened and boy B tells him that he had forgotten his lunch bag at home. Boy A then shares his lunch with boy B; he is happy and this makes him shout yummy. Boy A replies him that his mum used Bama mayonnaise (Now at this point, they could have been creative about this advert whereby boy B tells boy A that he would go home and introduce Bama to his mum as well because it is yummy or better still, he goes home unhappy, and the mum asks him what the problem is, then he can simply tell his mum that he wants Bama because he loves it- Shikena!)

The next day, boy A’s mum packs his lunch bag for him again. Boy B’s mum dd not forget to give her son lunch this time. However, when boy B sights boy A, he remembers how yummy boy A’s food was and immediately hides his own lunch bag in order to eat boy A’s food with him again. During lunch time, boy A again sees boy B unhappy and asks him what the problem is and boy B replies that he forgot his lunch bag at home again. Boy A in his caring manner, shares his food with him again. The end…

Observation

• It is actually wrong to look at people’s mouth or food when they are eating
• The child would automatically find it convenient to tell more lies; he would tell lies to get other things not just for food.
• The child wouuld always want to have other people’s things

Funny
Lol, when I watched this part, I couldn’t help but laugh. The young boy was in a hurry to let out that “Umm, this is yummy”

Thumbs up

Those children were so outspoken. This script is a good one but the latter part should be reworked on, so that children learn to be contented with what they have and know that it is wrong to tell lies. Though people preach “share with others”, but we all know that children are also thought not to collect something from people. Also, I love boy A, the boy carried smiled all through the advert. He was cheerful…

Remark
This is a nice script but not properly executed. It has a poor ending. It is not encouraging for children to watch this advert. It should be edited. That last part where he tried to hide his lunch pack, someone should have fished him out and lectured him on the importance of being honest and contented.

Some years back there was a particular Dettol advert where a child jumped into a pit to retrieve his ball. Now people criticised that particular scene, not because they feel kids may watch it and feel all pits can be jumped into. Dettol listened to people and edited that scene. So, I expect Bama Mayonnaise to also do the same thing

DURATION: 47 SECONDS (less than a minute)

MBOK! THESE 8 CELEBRITY COUPLES LIVED FROM SOULMATES TO ROOMMATES…


These celebrity couples lived from soul mates to roommates until they eventually divorced. There was a time their love was ‘as sweet as sugar’ and they were regarded as ‘’love birds’ always holding hands and looking into each other’s eyes. They were the envy of other celebrity couples married and yet to be married, but now the sugar has no taste again, the bird flew away with their love, and now,love has gone sour. So, in order not to draw media attention, they decided to stick together but not as soul mates but as room mates until they could no longer live as room mates. ‘Ogefash’ blog brings to you the celebrity couples……

Iretiola and Patrick Doyle


The first couple on my list are the duo of Iretiola and Patrick Doyle. Not many people know that they have gone their separate ways but the union produced six children. Iretiola left the husband and kids and moved to her own self built mansion.

But come to think of it, do you need a soothsayer to tell you that this duo’s relationship was obviously dead. They hardly moved around together or talked about each other. One could tell that they lived in the same apartment but shared no mutual feeling; they were just room mates

One thing that may have punctured this relationship may be on the issue of increase in the part of one and the other was not keeping up. Iretiola Doyle was more in limelight than the husband. Patrick Doyle was living in past glory. The woman was raking in more money than the husband and overtime she became more famous than the husband. Sources revealed that Iretiola Doyle became the bread winner of the house as she became more affluent than the husband taking care of the family needs. There is also the age gap.

Tiwa Savage and Tee billz


(Clearing my throat) Common, Teebillz what were you thinking? That after all those heinous and spiteful words you wrote about your wife- Tiwa Savage Balogun, her mum- Iya Tiwa Savage etc and posted on your instagram page, you would still have a happily ever after wedding?

And Tiwa Savage what were you thinking that after all you came out to say on TV about your husband Tee Billz (Doesn’t buy diaper, he smokes this and that, womanises…) you would still have a happily ever after wedding? Okay, you guyz should continue oo…

Well the truth is that, one could tell that the case of this couple was more of deciding to forgive each other but they never forgot or let go the issue. They forgave each other partly and then moved on, but the inability to forget the issue crept up and consumed their union. I am not a marriage breaker, but I sincerely knew it, somewhere in my heart that, their re-union would not survive for long and this proved true.

Tonto Dike and Olakunle Churchill

The real Tontolet and the Churchillet! I have repeatedly tried not to believe that this two love birds are really no longer together. I thought theirs was love made from heaven and ordained specially by God. I thought they were inseparable until they joined the list of divorced couples. So aunty Tonto, so all those my husband is this and that, he bought me this and that, I love my husband “tori torun” na wash? God is watching oo.

Uncle Churchill, na the love wey you promise am you truly show am? Why you come dey flirt with another woman na? God is watching ooo.

Well, I later figured out that they were just great and perfect actors. They lived in the same room and acted their script well for the fame or sonmething else entirely. They made people believe they were soul mates, rather they were just room mates that needed to stay together to deliver a flawless job. I think they are still acting the script…

Caroline Ekanem and Musa Danjuma


Caro Caro! At times, some people just want the under of a man as well as the wealth; even if they are not going to be soul mates but room mates; the room plenty na and other wives don occupy their various rooms. So, I heard that she was against the husband marrying another person, forgetting that she also get “iya ile” before the husband marry am. “You share person husband with am, when im reach your turn, you know wan make them share am with you…hia…Who no like better thing na…”

Ini Edo and Philip Ehiagwina


Sincerely, I think this is another couple that are great actors, though unlike Tonto and Churchill that are still acting out a script, they have finished acting their own script. Really, they were just perfect room mates, never creating time for eachother. The whole marriage thing was just formality.

Damilola Adegbite and Chris Attoh


I don’t believe they are no longer together. They were such a beautiful, romantic and perfect couple only for it to be all over the media that they are no longer together. But who would be blamed for the separation? They moved from being soul mates to room mates. When they started, ‘the love dey do them’, suddenly love went sour. The husband would go out, claiming busy and at the end would not bring money home. All he did was just to enter the house and sleep. Communication between Damilola and Chris was punctured and they just managed to stay in the same house till they could no longer accommodate each other.

Toyin Aimakhu and Adeniyi Johnson


Really don’t know how things fell apart for this couple; I thought they were perfect couple. But after I watched their wedding video clip, then I discovered that Toyin was actually the one doing the loving more than the guy. The guy just needed her to boost his fame. He was practically cheating on her even after her wedding. Hence, living as roommate with her was convenient for him until he found another accommodation.

Toke Makinwa and Maje Ayide


Mbok, love is truly blind. This guy was obviously a definition of a perfect cheat. I don’t know why darling Toke didn’t see that. He hardly said anything about her while they were together. Meanwhile, Toke said a whole lot about him. Toke put the guy on her head while Maje put her under; omashe. This is what you call “In love with the wrong guy”. Toke thought they were perfect soul mates, meanwhile he just saw her as a roommate, though Toke discovered later, but it was pretty late.

I really hope the genuine love birds are able to fix their relationship and make it work again. I dedicate these songs to them “Photograph, Thinking out loud, Perfect, by Ed Sheeran” Winks…
