    I tend to disagree with you. I am not a commercial guy as i am attached to financial and strategic planning side in the telecom sector in Pakistan. What i have observed is that that the above ad got a very good response from the public just because the public didn’t have as detailed information about the ad that it has been copied. Moreover, i myself saw the orignal ad since it was forwarded to me and i think Faisal Qureishi modified it in a brilliant manner. We all know that copying ideas is not new in advertisement sector and what really matters is how good you can copy it because we have incidents where copied ads became the source of publicity for the orignal ads. Same is the case with this ad in Pakistan. Can you tell me how many people knew about the Australian ad in such detail and if it was not for positive response the Ufone ad got, no one would have ever explored the orignal ad. Even Geo copied the style and used it in their “Hum sub umeed saay haain”
    Your points are valid when it comes to the background shown in the ad as i also got distracted by it but then the plus points and the very local expressions got it covered. Lastly, the current humorous appeal of the Ufone ads is becoming a distinctive identity of it. The recent FnF number ads is another big hit from Faisal Qureshi and i am sure you will write with some appreciation on it.
    Lastly, i must appreciate this forum for such healthy discussions.

    Thanks for information. But normally no body has such deep info like you. But if we follow the fact this ad was much appreciated by the people. This was a unique idea(Copied as per you). The same music was used in Dr.Shahid Masud’s programme run on ARY Digital” The End of Time”.
