ADVERT REVIEW “MOLPED SANITARY PAD” I REALLY DON’T KNOW WHY CHIDINMA LIKES FIXING BLINDING EYE LASHES!

IG @ogefashblog

This is Molped sanitary pad advert and it features Nigerian songstress- Chidinma Ekile. The singer doubles as a singer and narrator in the advert.

The name of this sanitary pad though; it’s really not a

catchy one or one that easily sticks to consumers’ lips/memory. I can’t count how many times I have had to erase the name of the pad while writing this article just to write the appropriate name of the sanitary pad. I was writing “Mopled” instead. They should have just called it “Mol-pad” instead of “Molped”. Aren’t they the owners of Molfix? Can’t they see that “Molfix” sounds sweet to one’s lips and to the ears?


LYRICS TO THE SONG FOR MOLPED SANITARY PAD
BEATZ
We deserve more girls
No leakage, no leak-aaaage
No no no leakage; we need a big change in our life

No no no
No no no irritation
No no no, we need a revolution
ADVERT NARRATOR

MESSAGE IN THE ADVERT

Molped sanitary pad is made with cotton. It has a nylon free surface and a breathable back sheet that helps solve irritation, itching and coarseness problems.

THE REVIEW
Remember Chidinma Right? She was among the “Season 3” contestants for 2010 Project Fame West Africa which was highly sponsored by MTN. Chidinma won the competition for that season. I have often times wondered why the singer loves fixing extremely long eye lashes and therefore suffers her eyes from seeing properly when she needs to make use of them. If you ask me, that makes no sense; those are blinding eye lashes. The way she was even closing her eyes, put me off from watching the advert.
“BLINDING EYES”


Anyway, back to the advert. This Molped sanitary pad is from Hayat Kimya Nigeria; they are also the manufacturers of Molfix baby diaper.
So the narrator said “Now in Nigeria”. Biko (Please), where dem dey before? Just kidding though!
I love the advert, except that the name of the brand “Molped” looked hidden. Infact, the word “Leakage and Irratation” were boldly displayed compared to the sanitary pad name “Molped”
I love the fact that the advert has a unique concept. I mean, the ladies led by Chidinma Ekile were with the use of a megaphone campaigning for a change in a particular sanitary pad because it caused irritation and discomfort for them. They were creating awareness for a better sanitary pad “Molped” that would give no irritation, no leakage and no discomfort.
The advert though nice, may not really be easily comprehensible to a lame man. But I would break down/explain the advert…
In the advert, a group of ladies matched along a particular path where they saw a bunch of sanitary pads that caused irritation, leakage and discomfort. Looking for a different kind of pad, they matched further even though they had to pass through and bulldoze the bunch of sanitary pads that caused discomfort. As they sauntered along that path, they came across the real sanitary pad that they have always desired to use. It is Molped sanitary pad; the sanitary pad with no leakage or irritation.
The advert uses Chidinma’s melodious beat to the song titled “Kedike” to pass across its message to consumers and impending consumers and it lasted for 45 seconds. Chidinma was the lead female vocalist.
Lyrically; I think they could have done better with the lyrics. Those lyrics are not connecting at all.
Does this advert have the pull strategy? That is, can the advert pull people or the viewers of the television commercial (TVC) to buy the product? Well partially.
In as much as I love the video concept, I feel it was badly shot. There should have been a close up shot on the sanitary pad rather than the long shot; it was hidden sought of.

SOUND: Very tuneful. The advert has the same beat with “Kedike” by Chidinma Ekile. The artiste’s vocal was clear. She has a clear vocal and was very expressive
COSTUME: Beautiful!
JUST WONDERING
Why is this larger than the name of the sanitary pad?

“Irritation/ Leakage” or “No Irritation/No leakage” Which should it be?

REMARK: An interesting advert; although I felt the name of the product was not conspicuous enough. It looked hidden
