On this episode, Cyrus is joined by Anant Rangaswami, Advertiser, Author & Editor of MELT on WION TV. They talk about the posters of famous people that Anant has behind him during the recording - from Johnny Depp to Sachin Tendulkar, and then take us back in time and talk about Anant's initial years in advertising, writing two books and what they were about, the best and worst ads ever made, they touch upon the Myanmar coup and the video of the aerobics instructor dancing as the coup unfolded behind her, talk about the ridiculousness of the whole Myntra logo debacle and draws parallels between that and the Tanishq ad 'controversy' from back in October. Anant also says that governments should come out and say that ads are just ads, how a lot of our politicians are in interfaith marriages, what the future of advertising could be if we carry on on this path of taking offense, and lots more.
