I presume most of you have viewed the latest Vodafone ad for Call Conferencing. This ad reminded me of my college days. We were nearing our Graduation and as the ‘Interviews’ loomed large up ahead, we realized that we didn’t know how to tie a Tie 😐
Only one dude amongst us – Mr. S – knew it and what more, he had an entire repertoire of Knots! Well, not exactly many but he knew more than one. So he was in great demand one day as few of us came equipped with brand new ties and implored him to teach us the knottings. Now one thing you must know about Mr. S is that….he’s left-handed! So while for some it was confusing, for some it made it easier. Why? Well, for those who viewed his tying the tie from in-front-of-him, it seemed as if a mirror-image and that made it easy. And for those who viewed it side-by-side, it was a helluva job to replicate the knots. Didn’t get me? Try it out yourselves 😛
We didn’t have the same level of fun as in the Ad but it was a unique experience for each of us. And after each one of us managed to finally get it, or thought we did, it was evaluation time for Mr. S and he was frankly flabbergasted at what he saw! None of us had got it right!!! It finally took umpteen sessions and quite a few interviews until we all got it right!
Here’s the Vodafone Ad for those of you who haven’t seen it. Unlike other Vodafone ads, this one has dialogues innit but it is funny nonetheless!!!
P.S: I have saved a tie with the perfect knot intact. I just wear it and tighten it. Saves the whole tying up business
