40 Classic Indian Ads Are Hidden In This Painting; Can You Find Them All?

The nineties were the time when social media was yet to make an entry and television was at its peak in India. The cable television had ushered in the dawn of new channels such as Zee TV giving tough competition to the monopoly of Doordarshan. And also it was a time when the electronic media was booming and became more creative and innovative.  

Today’s kids who watch the series on OTT platforms without any interruption from the advertisements in between cannot understand the special place the advertisements enjoyed in the hearts of every TV viewer in those days.


That is why when a painting that is a sort of collage of 40 most famous advertisements went viral on Twitter, it became quite trendy with many viewers trying out to find their favorite television ads and enjoying the fun.
