Harshdeep 2.0

What is in a name?

Filed under: Uncategorized — harshdeep @ 12:49 pm

For quite some time, Gmail has been repeatedly showing me Vicks ads irrespective of the content of the messages I read. Reason – their tagline is “Harsh weather”. And Harsh, being part of my first name, appears in most of the mails in my mailbox. So even though the weather is pretty pleasant here in Austin, I keep getting this ad. So much for targeted advertising.

During the first few weeks in the US, I tried to emphasize that my name has nothing to do with the English words ‘harsh’ and ‘deep’ by telling them that they should pronounce ‘Harsh’ as in ‘Hersheys’. But I gave up when all they could remember a few days later was ‘that chocolate guy’.
