How To Lose 10Kg For Just Rs 10,008?

Only VLCC can come up with such harebrained schemes and advertisements. Don’t blame me if you end up with a severe bout of laughter-induced stomach cramp.



I can’t help but wonder what the next image in the “complete transformation” sequence would be. Naughty! Naughty! That said, you would be spending exactly 1000 Rupees and 80 paise per kilo shed. How VLCC managed to come up with this magic figure is beyond my limited business knowledge. I would give anything to see the math. It’s much more expensive (5.009009009009009009009009009009… times to be exact) than Steve’s Gym, which offered a “Lose 5 Kgs for 999″ package quite a while ago (You can read that analysis here – “The Money-Weight Equation”). It could be due to inflation; you never know.



Of particular interest to me is the VLCC Hydra Facial.

My dictionary says:

Noun: Hydra

  1. Trouble that cannot be overcome by a single effort because of its many aspects or its persistent and pervasive quality. Example: “We may be facing a hydra that defies any easy solution.”
  2. Small tubular solitary freshwater hydrozoan polyp.
  3. A long faint constellation in the southern hemisphere near the equator stretching between Virgo and Cancer.
  4. (Greek mythology) monster with nine heads; when struck off each head was replaced by two new ones. Example: “Hydra was slain by Hercules.”

If VLCC’s definition of Hydra is either 1, 2, or 4, I definitely would give the facial a second thought. In 1, your face is being referred to as the hydra (gives the sentence “We may be facing a hydra that defies any easy solution,” a completely refreshing meaning). In 2, your face is being washed by a freshwater resident. In 4, [god forbid!] I don’t know what will happen. Chances are you just might find the odd nine-headed monster roaming around inside VLCC, looking for a facial victim. It’s known to be a crazy place.

On the other hand, if VLCC’s definition is 3, I guess they just point your chair in the direction of the Hydra constellation, which would make it perfectly safe. But how that helps with the facial, completely stupefies me.

Maybe you have some idea?

Thank God, there is something to laugh about in this page after a long time. I thought you fell into a bottom-less well of [mis-]management and its [mis-]conceptions.
