Sylvester daCunha, the creative genius behind the beloved Amul butter mascot, fondly known as the Butter Girl, breathed his last on Tuesday, leaving behind a remarkable legacy that will continue to bring smiles to the faces of millions.
Born in 1966, the Butter Girl quickly became an iconic symbol of Amul’s advertising campaigns, thanks to daCunha’s imaginative vision. With her infectious smile and polka-dotted dress, she effortlessly captured the hearts of Indians across generations. Whether it was politics, sports, popular culture, or festivals, the Butter Girl cheerfully celebrated it all, endearing herself to the masses.
However, daCunha’s brilliant campaigns were not without their share of controversy. His witty and often satirical advertisements occasionally landed Amul in trouble, but they also catapulted the brand to unparalleled heights of success.
DaCunha’s departure marks the end of an era in the advertising world. However, his legacy will endure, ensuring that the Butter Girl continues to be an ever-present symbol of joy, humour, and celebration in the hearts of the people.
As we bid farewell to this great advertising legend, let us cherish the countless moments of laughter and happiness that he brought into our lives through the unforgettable Butter Girl.
