ADVERT REVIEW: KENYA INDOMIE NOODLES ADVERT “WHY THIS OBVIOUS FLAW?”

@ogefashblog

Hungry and need that quick to prepare meal? “Indomie Noodles” is the fast and easy meal to think of, ready to be taken in the next five minutes according to Indomie manufacturers. How true is that? Mine takes more than 5 minutes to cook o…

But really, I don’t know why Indomie manufacturers make people believe that Indomie noodles can be prepared in just 5 minutes; “asi” that is a lie. It obviously takes more than 5 minutes, fans of the noodle can testify to this.

THE ADVERT

A young lady is in the kitchen and she excited cooking Indomie noodles. She picks both the chicken and beef flavors to cook.

Next, the young lady is seen eating a bowl of Indomie noodles with her friend who is also excited.

 

SUMMARY OF THE ADVERT

A young lady is visited by her bosom friend and she prepares Indomie Noodles for her in less than five minutes (According to the time the advertisers displayed on the screen).

THE MESSAGE IN THE ADVERT

Indomie Noodles is sweet and comes in different flavors. It takes about 5 minutes to prepare.

THE REVIEW

This advert is a Kenyan advert and it features Gospel musician- Eve Bahati. The music was composed on one Kenyan’s main language- Tibetan.

I love this advert because it is very straightforward. So I am wondering why the lady had to change attire when it is still the same day; that is an obvious flaw for me.

I mean, when she was cooking noodles in the kitchen, she was wearing an orange jumpsuit, but when she joined her friend in the sitting room with a bowl of noodles, she was wearing a different attire; this time around a gown. Was that really necessary? It wasn’t necessary at all. Infact, changing of attire in that manner confuses the viewers at home. What made me recognize her was just her hair. It was also strange that despite how long her braids were, she found it comfortable letting it down while cooking the Noodles in the kitchen.

But away from the flaws, I love the whole setting for the kitchen and the living room.

So does this advert have the strategy to push people into buying the Noodles? Well partially! Indomie is one quick meal people naturally love to buy with or without advert.

ADVERT REVIEW: INDOMIE NOODLES… (TERRIFIC ADVERT JUST THAT…)


This is an old advert though, buy I don’t think there is any new Indomie TV advert for now…
An advert that has outspoken and vibrant children; you have got no choice but to love the advert. I totally love this advert. I could feel those children’s true excitement about the particular noodle they wanted to buy; it was beyond the advert. It was more like they have been tasting no other noodles but Indomie. They were high-spirited, good with words and certainly made the advert interesting to watch.

They had immense knowledge about what they wanted to buy,perhaps the reason for their ‘excellent’ performance in the advert. Hence, advertisers really need to pick one or two things from this advert. Getting people to feature in an advert should go beyond the physical attributes, the person should have sufficient knowledge about the product and should also be a consumer of the product, except it is a new product. That was what I noticed about the kids and that was why they advertised in a passionate way. One could tell from the reaction when the mallam gave them another noodle that wasn’t Indomie…

So, at the beginning of the advert, three kids comprising two boys and a girl approached their mum while talking with a friend. The three kids took permission to go and buy Indomie noodles from the Mallam. On getting to the Mallam’s shop, they requested for the Indomie super pack. But the Mallam rather than give them Indomie noodles, gave them another type of noodle and this displeased the kids. They were not happy with the Mallam and instantly told him that “Indomie noodle is not the same with other noodle and the difference is in the taste.” The man was puzzled, so he immediately collected the other noodle and gave them original Indomie noodles. The kids were excited.

Remark
Terrific advert! Terrific kids I barely found flaws in the advert. I love the fact that the Mallam’s shop looked like a real shop. It wasn’t just noodles he was selling. He sold other items like Dano milk, Minimi Chin chin, power oil; even though they were all Dufil products. But then they went further to add bread and egg to it; at least those ones no carry brand. Great!

Just wondering
• So lovely advert, just that, when those children approached their mum and took permission to go and buy noodles, I was expecting her to stretch forth her hand and give the eldest child money, but she didn’t. I think that scene should have been created, so children know that it’s not natural for kids to have money with them, except the money was given to them.


• Whatever happened to table manners- no talking while eating. I think she should have finished her meal first before talking…


• I want to believe that the noodles the children bought was what the family cooked, so I am wondering how two Super packs suddenly multiplied like that…(Don’t ask me how I knew it was two packs they bought; well check for yourself na, the eldest gave the Mallam N200). IF their mother went to buy more noodles, we were not shown that.


DURATION: 58 SECONDS (less than I MINUTE)
