The Frog Ad By Athmeeya Shetty


Life is definitely not eternal. But to live is bliss. We are born once and we get an opportunity to fulfill our desires just once. The chance once let go is left forever. All that we are left with after missing a moment is regret and only regret. “I wish I could have enjoyed my life a little more. I so wish I could have danced till my knees gave up or laughed my heart out is all that one aspires during the last breath if life is not lived to the fullest.” There are few others who are left with deep desires unfulfilled……. To have food!! It is said, when I die and go to God, I should not be in a state wherein I say I still have some potentials left with me. Instead I should say with a deep sense of satisfaction that I used my hundred percent. I lived my life completely. That’s when we can truly respect our life and that’s a way to express gratitude.

Be not left with a moment of despair. Regrets for empty tummy is the most depressing thing ever on earth. What better way to celebrate life than yummy food and togetherness. That’s the tactic used by the filmmakers in this advertisement. This had has cleverly hooked up to the ability of hunger to captivate all the senses a man possess.

Switzerland is a very hardworking nation. This land is gifted with people who work untiringly. They believe in the fact that, u work hard in this life to enjoy your next incarnation.
