(+ADVERT SONG) ADVERT REVIEW: MTN PULSE “WHAT MTN IS HIDING FROM CUSTOMERS ABOUT M-PULSE…BY THE WAY, THESE TEENS IN THE ADVERT WERE REALLY LOOKING SO H…”

Team A and Team B are teens and are both playing the basket ball. Team A players are taller than Team B players, so they think their height can make them win the game, forgetting that practical knowledge is power and is needed. Team B players despite their height are able to defeat Team A; apparently they are students on the MTN PULSE portal also known as M-Pulse portal where they have garnered knowledge about basketball and have been able to hone their basket ball skills.
Next, another set of teens comprising a female and male get tutorial on M-Pulse portal. They are either playing an intellectual game or learning something else.
Next, a male teen is seen painting the picture of a female portrait and he does that exceptionally. One can tell that he garnered enough knowledge on how to paint from M-pulse educational portal.
Next, a female teen is seen trying an experiment with the aid of an educational material she is reading on the M-Pulse educational portal. She is able to make her experiment work even though her body gets soiled while doing that.

MESSAGE IN THE ADVERT
M-pulse is basically an educational portal with contents targeted at teens; they get a whopping 1.2GB for monthly plan @ N150 and 350MB for weekly plan @ N50! Teens from primary division to the senior secondary division can learn more through the M-pulse portal and also at an affordable rate. Exciting contents on the portal include games, vocational skills, science, engineering, computer programming, media, medicine, fashion. There are also past questions and answers for any of them preparing for exam.
The good thing about M-pulse is that there is parental control over the contents their kids get to see. Parents can join to scrutinize their kids’ activities and control what they access. All they need do is get on the portal and register.
This really is an interesting package I must say for the teens; more data, more fun and learning at an affordable price. There are still more exciting stuffs on this package that MTN did not mention or perhaps I should say hiding from customers, and you may miss out except you dial the code *344#; go on, dial it and register to enjoy the package.
This advert featured teens alone since the advert is targeted at them. But really, the basketball players for Team A and B look are so unrealistic; a set of tall players and a set of short players. Where does that happen? Well I know the point MTN was trying to pass across was that you also need to hone your skills even if you have them. The tall players have the skills but did not hone their skills, while the short players honed their skills through the practical knowledge garnered from M-Pulse educational portal and that was why they were able to defeat the tall guys; I love that!
Nna mhen, forgheet (In Igbo man’s voice), don’t be deceived, for basketball; height di (is) very important. It determines one’s success in the game. A tall player would always have an advantage. But come to think of it, those teens in Team A, was that camera effect? They really looked so hilly as in mountainous, as in tall; nice effect that is all I want to say.
I love all the teens that featured in the video, they were quite expressive. They acted like there was no camera in front of them. I think these are the future Nollywood or Hollywood or Whateverhood stars in the making.
However the cinematography wasn’t superb; the video was just not bright, perhaps the camera used was not “feeling too well” or something.
I wonder what that female teen was working on, I sha know she shouted it worked! And I am like, wetin work?
If they are actually calling on schools to register their students on the M-pulse portal. Those teenagers were on school uniform and I saw a branded MTM bag and bottle. So why did they make it look like it was just limited to home, they kept on hammering on parental control. So how do parents control what they see, if they are actually making use of it in the school
MUSIC: I love the tune; terrific! However, their vocal was not clear. I had to strain my ears to ear the lyrics.
COSTUME: Each costume complemented each occasion.
REMARK: Terrific graphics. I love the advert but the cinematography could have been better.
