I remember seeing this video on cooliris couple of days back.

Shankar, no offense but I have great respect for animals and wildlife. Though I did find it a bit funny that the driver didn't veer away or try to stop the car inspite of seeing the horse coming straight at him.

Lovely creatures, horses are. It jumped over the car with such grace and continued as if nothing had happened. Pity the poor car guy!

Bit surprised to see such an emotion from you !! Definitely no one purposely sent the animal onto the car and videographed it !! So a pure accident and seeing the horse gracefully jump over it the humour in all of it !! Btw are you a member of SPCA ??

I agree about it not being on purpose. Yes I love animals - all sorts of 4 legged creatures. Horses are amongst my favourite - highly intelligent creatures- clearly this is why he (the horse) was able to anticipate the trouble and jumped over.
Yes I support the SPCA as well as a number of other Animal Charities in my own small way. When it comes to animals I have very very strong views and tend to air them most times because I find that we humans are more often than not, crass, cruel and selfish, whereas animals are never like that.

IMO the car that crashed into the horse had stopped hence the driver of that car is not to be blamed.

The car from which the video is being made is more at fault for chasing the horses. They should have stopped as the horses must have panicked and kept running.

Horses are beautiful and elegant animals and like all other living beings must be treated with respect.

This ad is not from '90s, but i simply loved it. Especially at the end of the ad the words were something like "Fiat Palio, From the makers of Ferrari!"

well, this thread has often seen some non 90's ads but then , we might as well rename the thread or stick to the title and post only 90's ads.
nevertheless the ads posted here have all been fantastic.
