Thumbs up Awesome Ads

Brilliant Ads!
Brings back old childhood memories (i was just a li'l kid when most of these were aired).
I do remember the indica ad with the lobo song quite well.
The best print ad seems to be the Jeep ad posted by GTO.
Post more please

Nice watching these ads. Takes you down the memory lane! I still remember the Honda City launch. But two ads that stand out the most are Padmini and Ambassador. I didnt know that the Amby could do 0-60 in just over 7 seconds and the Padmini took over 12 sec for the same.

Awesome thread! Tata ads, humara bajaj jingle, and Chevrolet jingle are the best. Not to mention the 'topless' jeep ad.
