Watch: A Matrimonial Ad 'Call Me Maybe' Style
There was a time before the rise of all the let's-find-you-a-spouse dot coms when the Sunday matrimonial columns in dailies were an absolute hoot. I am not denying that they helped millions find their "soul mates", but for me and my mother, people's bizarre demands and their unabashed self-advertisement provided for entertaining reading material over breakfast.
Now that these ads have gone digital, so has their lampooning.
Artistes Asmita Ghosh and Anukripa Elango made an Indian version of Carly Rae Jepsen's song 'Call me maybe' for their official entry to the Sir Mix-A-Lot parody song contest. It parodies the hunt for the perfect daughter-in-law, tall, thin, fair, with a penchant for making round chapatis, for an eligible MBA bachelor.
