VLCC group, India’s largest beauty, slimming and fitness conglomerate, came up with these pretty raw images to promote their weight loss programs. I’m not really impressed by the artwork, but I think it’s a pretty neat approach to the entire ‘get slim’ issue. True, by adjusting the portions or ingredients of your meals, you’ll be able to drop some kilos (or pounds). I was kind of amused to see how they approached the topic by turning the extra weight into gadget accessories. Nice materialization. Instead of picturing the overweight as a sorrow, or a fact-to-live-with, they pictured it as something you could get rid of at any given time. Very psychological.
