The OpenSolaris mad-ad Video
By Nirmay26-Oracle on Aug 08, 2008
The Open Source Mela (Fair), at Sun's India Engineering Center, happened in March, 2008 saw a lot of technical sessions around FOSS technologies. The idea behind this internal event was to foster the culture of open source projects internally. Along with the technical sessions, some fun-filled events were also hosted. One of them was a mad-ad contest.
The above poster was quiet encouraging and some of us (from the Solaris team) decided to participate. We could not come up with anything until just one hour before the contest when we finally got together to brainstorm on what we could present. The following video is what we came up with and it turned out to be a winner.
The song is based on a famous commercial in India. This mad-ad (or rather a jingle?) is in Hinglish (a mix of Hindi and English ). Many thanks to Kini for helping us make this video and we hope you will enjoy it.
