Just when the much talked about grueling-first-year of MBA was becoming a stark reality, MAXI got the batch to let their hair down and set their imagination on fire.

To get a break from the Marketing jargon inside the classroom, the sleep deprived juniors were asked to unleash their inner Don Draper and let their copy writing skills give a competition to even Chandler Bing.

‘AdTwist’, a competition especially meant for those who can’t stop dreaming about brands and who spent the night before their exams feasting on the latest episodes of House of Cards, Game of Thrones or good ol’ Friends.

It required each participant to get an image of their favorite TV show or movie and associate the image with a relevant brand along with a catchy tag line.

What followed in the next three days was a buzz of excitement and untethered creativity by the junior batch!

Here are the top 10 ads chosen by the senior MAXI team…
