Yep. But it's still very stupid. Even someone like my father, who's not exactly a "car guy" will be able to tell his car apart from others that are similar.
Nice car, silly ad.

The guys who do Tata ads are the Anu Malik of the ad industry.
great find buddy . . .. keep it up.

BTW, anyone seen the Avenger ad? Yeah yeah, I know the bike sucks, but the ad is amazing. I feel like... and that lovely bass guitar background score. Come to think of it, Bajaj does some pretty good creative stuff.
Yes that was good. Even the "Start Walking" for Pulsar black, is good, with the bluesy jivey rasping voiced song. My kind of music.

The chaps who do the Bajaj ads should really deserve an applause. Caliber, Wind, Discover, Pulsar and now even the Platina ad is pretty good.

If only I could be quicker. Snatched the line out of my mouth.

Yessssssssss. I would surely like to do that, and go away to wilderness with my Dicor. No more tensions.

Yea, I would say The Dicor ad is the best right now. Its got that essence and that punch in describing the vehicle, I think all other vehicle ads should be more of this kind than those mushy, kuchy-kuchy ads(which sucks).

I loved the first Tata Indica Ad... "more car per car"
it had that song "I'd love you to want me" by Lobo

it went like this:

when i saw you standing there,
about fell off my chair,

and when you moved your mouth to speak,
i felt the blood go through my feet!

now it took time for me to know,
what you tried so not to show,

and something in my soul just cried,
i see the want in your blue eyes,

baby! i'd love you to want me,
the way that i want you, the way that it should be!...

I liked the tata sierra ad the way it gets dirty.Sadly for sierra it was a product much before its time. "the rough with the smooth" this punch line is still used in auto mags
