Gillette – The Best a Fan Can Get | Gillette India Cricket Best Moments


My name is Mangesh Ganpatrao Kadam I’ve always been a cricket fan, and I’ve been the memory of every match played. Right from my childhood I was passionate about cricket. One day I decided to keep wickets, too close to the stumps, and… lost my ‘sight screen’. In other words, I lost my vision. I retired hurt, but I didn’t retire. Since then India has played 1272 matches, and I haven’t missed a single one. Every low, every high, I’ve seen through Suresh’s eyes. My son, Suresh. Be it Adelaide or Sydney, Oval or Wankhede, we were first at the ground.  In 83, I watched the impossible come true. Saw Kapil’s toothy grin and tears of joy in my eyes. On a Colour TV, there’s so much I’ve watched. One dayers being played at night. Shastri driving without a license. Suresh told me
India wears the colour of the sky… sky blue. I felt happy hearing that. And happier, wearing it. One fine day,
I watched a miracle being born. “How old is he?” “16” “16?” “16” I watched Azhar’s amazing wristwork, Kumble’s fast slow bowling, Dravid’s forward defense. I even watched India learn to field. In a few years, Indian cricket grew up so fast, just like Suresh.  And I started to see all kinds of things. Helicopter shot, 6 sixes in an over, a third umpire. Then the day finally arrived… when Suresh had to start an innings of his own, his own little partnership. After all, how long will
I keep going? Maybe now it’s time for me to retire. Now I guess only the sky
will wear my sky blue. “Oh that was so close.” “Who’s that?” “I don’t think he grounded the bat,” “I think his bat is in the air.” “Dravid???” “Mr. Kadam” “It’s been referred to the third umpire.” “But the fielders are confident, sir.” “This is… unbelievable.” “No, sir, you are unbelievable.” “May I watch this tournament with you?” I’ve watched cricket all my life, I think I’ll watch a little longer…

    Sometimes, it is not about the product, Sometimes its not about the sales, Its about the connect.  I might not use their products for whatever reasons, but I will definitely have an positive emotion regarding the brand. The more human the Brand, the better will its Brand value be. Every time you will see an advertisement around cricket, you will remember this ad and remember the brand.. @Gillette India !! kudos

    Thank you for making this ad Gillete India. My grandfather is the biggest fan of cricket i've ever known and he's the one who got me to love it right from my childhood. I'm 20 now but he passed away when i was 13, and it heavily reminded me of him. He showered a lot of love and affection on me but i think one of his best gifts to me was the love of cricket. This ad is a symbol of his love for the same and hence the thank you 🙂
