It’s election season folks and the gloves are off. Politicians are duking it out for votes and eyeballs and satirists are having a ball. But a trend that we’ve recently noticed is that of parodies which feature child actors. This latest one makes fun of Arvind Kejriwal and Doordarshan.If you just look at it solely from a comedy point of view, it’s pretty LoL-worthy. But this one might just have gone over-board. Remember how there was once a hue and cry about kids being used in advertisements? Well, it’s time someone threw a fit about these parodies as well.
The point is that these kids are really young. Without the knowledge to know any better or the good sense to make their own choices, they have been roped in to fuel a parody war that’s getting nastier by the day.
And this isn’t just the first one. We’ve also seen parody ads that took a shot at Rahul Gandhi’s telly spots. Like this one.And this one. Who doesn’t like parodies? And as we get closer to Election Day, we’re sure they’ll be plenty more. We’ll bring them all to you. But come on guys, let’s leave the kids out of this, eh?
