My one humble question to Vodafone-Essar: “Change is good. For who? The dog?” And as a Vodafone official put it, these advertisements are part of a “saturation media blitz”. I reached saturation the first time I saw this advertisement.

How about you?

honestly i liked it man. the dog is still the same, it still roams, it only stays in a new home, which should not matter to the end user. good enough to keep the existing hutch users.

to bring in new business, vodafone has lots of cash to pump in. so probably more dogs in the next ad campaign.

i have been a hutch ad fan, for they created a brand with no shah rukh khans and kajols doing the job for them.
