Who’s that blaak sheeeep??????????


The reason I’m screeeeeaming this like my athmartha guru, annan Goundamani, is because I’ve been wanting to see the most popular person in Chennai for close to about 10 years.

Its not Rajinikanth – Whom I ve met once after bunking college and waiting in front of Arunachala inn.

It’s not AR Rahman. It’s not Karunanidhi. It’s not anyone else you might think.

But its P James. Now what a relief to finally see someone and put a face to their name, whom I’ve been waiting to see since the year 2000.

For those of you who dont know him, you might not be a Chennaiite. If you are incase a Chennaiite and don’t know him, you’re probably “literarically challenged” (Thats a word coined by me and I’m applying for a copyright).

Infact, being a Chennaiite, one should also know his cell phone number by heart.

I’m talking about none other than P James Magic Show guy who, on the contrary to painting the town red, painted Chennai in black with his name and phone number.

This guy probably covered the length and breadth of Chennai, advertising his ‘core competency’ (just in case my manager reads this blog). Anyone in Chennai would have come across these (estimated to be 30,000) advertisements and would have wondered who this guy is.

Infact, he has a wikipedia page about him. The Chennai corporation had to request him to stop desecrating the “clean and neat” walls of Chennai. Also he has lent his name for a book titled “Looking for P James”.

I dont think its gonna take long for some MBA student to do a case study on his advertising and marketing skills and how effective they were. “P James Magic Show – 98410 72571” Now how concise can anyone be than Mr. P James!! He got the message through to the public in a manner thats never before attempted.

TIll then, if you need a magician for a house party or an office party, you know whom to call.

    OMG!! I have seen this ad at least some 50 times (well, I can’t be expected to walk around Chennai counting the rest!) and wondered if he actually ran an ad agency to do it… frankly the best part of this post was, “I dont think its gonna take long for some MBA student to do a case study on his advertising and marketing skills and how effective they were.” LOL!!!
