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.
