I haven't seen the ad so I am taking a real long shot at this! Maybe the 10X4 'office' refers to the in cabin room of the Wagon R?

Hey, that ad is about people taking up un-conventional careers. People who chose to be different from the usual crowd of engineers, doctors. People who want to be creative at work.

The 10*4 refers to the Hilly/Forest/Rocky area that he now calls his "Office". Thats because he has chosen a career of Conservationalist/Naturalist, giving up his lucrative business, just because his Heart wanted to be close to nature always.

Its the heart ruling over head. Same goes for WagonR

!!! its just a simple add that means that guy (the grasim model), who beleived in himself and did what he felt was right and now he is a successful man with a office that 10 by 4 customers coming back means business is workin etc etc things r just to describe the office used as hyberbole statement and the wagonr stands for ppl who think like him the smarter race those who think different and folllow their on race

10*4 can refer to the wagon r itself. he' taken a job that' always on move n wagon r is his office.
The customers keep coming back, probably coz of the office ( the girl is more eager about the car than the guy...... )

Question

10*4 = 40 sq feet. i.e. the raft and its got a floor that rocks. Thjat part is fine but WHAT does that have to do with owning a WagonR. Does he mean that his office is as big as the wagonR with a floor that rocks as much as the raft? Wierd ad this.
The second wierd one is about teh sumo "kuch log sumo chalate hain" and the guys who drive the sumos are shown with a grim expression as if somebody told them.."what're u doing here, some one just died". Are the sumo types log grim reapers ??!! Whys the tone of the ad so grim?
I wonder how many people bought sumos looking at that ad.

10x4 more or less fits wagonR's dimensions (11.4 x 4.9 external)!... does the raft look like the wagonR? I think I've got to see the ad again!

The funda is breaking the convention and doing what you really want...

and anycase, that chap was (supposedly) an Investment Banker...

That means he has had his share of work and has burnt-out already (as generally the case with I-bankers)... and now no tensions is life!

It all means that if you are a nut and think that seeing a crappy ad about alternate careers is going to make you buy a car, then go ahead and enjoy. 10 by 4 refers to the Wagon R's dimensions. The floor rocks and rolls as in the Wagon R is not too composed on hilly terrain. LOL. And I think the advertiser sucks for thinking that young people have limited intelligence.

P.S. No offence.
P.P.S. As I said somewhere else, if it sells, it sells.
