Kapde dhona? Do balti pani…

Do the Dau..

Dau has always been a famous personality. For all those who do not know Dau and are curious - He is a Unique Sardar. Some of you might say - "aint all sardars unique?". My answer to that is no. In case you wanna know more about him just ask your friends almost 10% of India knows him so there is a good chance some one will introduce you to him.

Now coming to the point. The reason I bring Dau into the subject is because he was (one of the) star in Azad's entry for ad design competition 2008. The ad eventually won Gold. I can't seem to find the print ads (must be somewhere in my backups) but I have the video ad which was the prime attraction in the entry.

The seen shot by dau is that of a dhobi who says the washing cloths is all about two buckets of water (kapde dhona? bas do balti pani). The buckets you see are actually filled with water and Dau was throughly exhausted carrying them like that. Its only after then that he gave real expressions. The line became very popular throughout the hall. Here is the video -

PS: The lady who is putting detergent into the washing machine is my mom 🙂
