Monday Movies from India

The title shouldn't mislead you into thinking that there will be a set of movies each week simply reposted on this blog (even though it seems 90% of the internet is simply re-postings of other content -- I try to keep it mostly original).

Judging from emails and votes, you people, the readers (aren't we democratic) are interested in "life in India." And so I thought you'd get a kick out of three videos that really showcase just that.

The first is a quick, hilarious commercial about something fairly serious in the business world: McDelivery. Here in India, you can get your McDonalds delivered to your home. Among the choices, I'd get 2 burgers (McVeggie, Crispy Chinese, or McChicken) and 2 fries, all for the low, low price of Rs.109 (about $2.75). The marketing is much better than my no-frills description. Enjoy (and good luck getting the song out of your head; hence it's the first video):



The second video is an official tourism ad that really sums up some of the better parts of Incredible India (from my novice viewpoint):




Finally, a trailer for a new film coming out that I'd very much like to see. It showcases the ins-and-outs of international business (and some romance, I guess). "Outsourced" is an American film:




This all comes on the heels of my embrace of globalization: outsourcing my own ideas and work to smart, efficient laborers in India. More on this in an upcoming blog post!
