I love the new Cruze ad

figured the song goes like

"run boy run there's a storm on the run... dust.. rising, there's a beast on the prowl, there's a roar, there's a growl.. thunder and lightning"

So it seems Fiat has finally learn't that it also needs to make better ads and not just cars.I liked the recent Fiat ad (thoda kam nhi ho sakta) but the end part seems to be hurriedly done.I cant find the video though.

Haha, quite true. It is a very funny Adv.
The way the guy says with a straight face - "Thoda kam nahi ho sakta" is hilarious and fits perfectly with Indian Psyche.
Especially the part where he says to Kidnappers "Thoda Kam nahi ho sakta" is a double whammy!

Absolutely love it. I had not paid too much attention to the lyrics until you put it up. Those donuts with locked rear wheels had me wondering what it was actually sounding like while shooting the film. Simply amazing and fitting for a car like the Cruze. It speaks of power and attitude. The driver wearing a base ball cap, goes with the advertisement. Whoever the vocalist was, man, what a voice.. This has to be most awesome car ad I have seen for a Indian production.

Wait, the best is comming up . Tata Safari Storme is comming up. The best ever made adds are made for Safari In my opinion.

The low hung camera, showing the water, mud and lot of grass, and a Safari takes the turn and comes in front of Camera, with proper Base guitar Tunes, and without any Lyrics, Man.. you gotta see one.

Waiting for the upcomming Safari Ads.

You are right. Ogilvy and Mather (O&M) India have done a outstanding job with the Safari series. Every one of them is unique and fitting for the car.

Came across this excellent video by Mahindra. This is the best of Mahindras, IMO.

You kidding me
That has to be the most pathetic advert of all times.
Such ads are never going to increase sales figures,(jitna marzi kam kar lo).

While the video might be good, I'm wondering if the Ad sends the wrong message to devastate greenery.

This ad made my day.
Watched it 5 times back to back.
These are the type of ads which makes you connect with a brand.

Thats one way of looking at it but then the jeeps were travelling through elephant grass which are anyways burnt by the forest department in a particular season. At least in Kaziranga.

Don't be sorry. I would have watched these ones a hundred times, and still love them!

My favourite (In Chevy series) is this - The Optra launch ad.

No way!

Its good, but nothing compared to the safari series (Reclaim your life, specially) / even Pulsarmania ad for that matter. Doing circles is nice, but Pulsarmania was dance and the safari 'reclaim your life' ad - well - the way it jumps into the scene, the awesome soundtrack - it is the best till date.

As for lyrics, nothing beats TATA Safari 'Lines' IMO.

Being a Nissan owner, I have to show some brand loyalty

Nissan Sunny Caaaar


Nissan X-TRAIL X-TREME TRAIL


Nissan Micra - Those Days : Parking Space

I especially like the BGM track sung by Kishore Kumar.


370Z in India


And many others in NissanIndia youtube channel.
