The Sahara clone army game



Please click on the photograph to view an enlarged version. Then try and spot which figure is repeated most often. Is it the guy in the Che Guevara T-shirt? The chap wearing the cap wrong way round? Could it be the woman in the checked pink shirt? And will the Warriors be able to conquer the world with this clone army?

Clones or not, they seem pretty cheery for warriors. Also a little under armed.

even the sunlight is not consistent and comes in from different directions... lazy marketing meets lazy agency. the argument will always be - there was no time, no budget, the CEO wants it fast etc etc..

Maybe the recent developments forced the tight budget....(no unaccounted sources of funding, even the ad campaign was photoshopped to save costs)
BTW Che would surely not have approved this blatant commercialization ;)

Yup, Mr Guevara's found himself in some unlikely places since that pic was taken.

I am looking forward to a whole lot of "Puneri Paatyaas" in the crowd.

Hahah, awesome, Girish. Pretty cliched lines, too.

Yes. If they want to 'recreate history', does that mean they're going to travel up north and lose?

Since the people are the same, but thier poses are changing, maybe it was intentional and they just wanted to show some people running.
LOL@Girish

What first struck me when I saw this ad was that nobody seems to be holding the "Sahara Pune Warriors" flags (quite apart from the decidedly odd shape of the flag). Even the big one -- how'd it get up and how's it staying up?

Also maybe one of the guys with the cap on backwards can lend his to the balding guy wearing a Mantralaya babu style shirt.
