The Female Vodafone Zoozoo

Okay, they are called ZooZoos and they are a big hit.

Let’s see if you can work this out. Which of the two zoozoos in the below Vodafone commercial is a lady zoozoo? The one screaming? Or the one hiding behind the car?

Not too tough, right?

The Vodafone Vodones

I love these new ads from Vodafone being aired currently during the IPL matches.

Pretty cool animation, some really cute characters – don’t know what they are called – so I’ll call them Vodones. Much better than dogs as your mascot – and certainly a lot cheaper than hiring a bollywood superstar as your brand ambassador.  Truely, what an idea, sirjee.

The Oldest Frog

PTI reports that the world’s oldest frog has been discovered.

Scientists in New Zealand claimed to have found the world’s oldest frog — aged 37. The Maud Island frog, nicknamed Wellington by researchers, also has two other geriatric friends, a male, Gollum, 35, and a female, Xena, 34.

I wonder if the Wellington the frog can still croak as it could when it was younger. That somehow reminds me – how old is Himesh? Aah, 35 says the Wikipedia. Another record missed.

The NDTV Greenathon is on right now. While Milind Soman is running in circles all around Mumbai and people are pledging their support for the environment, I need to do something as well.

I’ll begin by saving electricity. By switching off the TV.

Nasal Paintings

Reuters reports on how a man from Andhra Pradesh paints with his nose.

Sachivalu Rambabu of Hyderabad, the capital city of the southern state, has been painting using his nose for the past eight years. Rambabu says that he wanted to do something different and this is how he came up with the idea of nose painting.

And we all know a singer who wanted to do things differently and sang with his nose.
