Branding for Artline Permanent Marker.

In order to highlight the USP of the product, a hilarious scenario is created to examine the capacity for permanence between memory and a permanent marker. As memories inevitably fade, the strength of the Artline Permanent Marker is brought to the fore.

Police: How was the victim attacked?
Man: He was stabbed in the back once!
*interject* Twice!
Police: What?
Man: Err, 3 stabs?
Woman: 4 times? In total...
*simultaneously* 4 times!
Woman: *simultaneously* 4 times!
Man: (continue) Every stab was equally as fatal! 
Police: What happened next?
Man: Before the victim fell to the ground, he managed to take 5 steps!
*interject* 3 steps!
Police: Was it 3 or 5 steps? Are you guys making it up as you go along?
Woman: His legs 
were much shorter, so his 5 steps are equivalent to my 3!
Police: OK, continue...
The victim then struggled excruciatingly on the floor for 3 minutes!
Woman: *interject* 30 minutes!
Hey! Were the both of you in different time zones or something?
Woman: Shucks! Looks like my watch is 27 
minutes slow!
Announcer: Can you seriously remember so clearly??? What do you think you are? An Artline 
Permanent Marker?! To leave an indelible mark, it's got to be Artline!
