Been a long time since this thread started.. but then again.. bad ads dont die.. do they?

Some from the current crop of them :

1.) The Pepsi ad, with them players (??) running, and then turning into tigers??
2.) Rani Mukherjee ads.. and i mean ALL of them ..!! The mosquito something ad had me literally screaming my head off..!! Munch .. munch... thats her eating our brains there...
3.) The Apache ad with the bike chasing some cars... bad as it is... but then why make the damned gal come out of the car.. and the guy take off his helmet? S*cks.!!
4.) The HDFC ads for "Sar uthake jiyo..." Irritating.. specially when it keeps getting shown thrice in the space of 5 mins.

best ad- the nike cricket one...just awsome. also that advertising standards council of india ad...hehehe, i saw it once and starting LOL'in.
worst ads- ahh too many...oh yeah, can they PLEASE stop showing that stayfree pads ad every other time...i mean, yes i understand that women need hygiene, but please i think the point gets across with just showing it once or twice.

Hey i miss the pepsi tv ads though, the ones with kareena and priyanka getting all hot and sweaty

I love that Nike cricket ad. It's simply amazing! Real creative and very apt for India.

at the other end of the spectrum you have the boring Pepsi gold ad and that rubbish Visa ad that keep repeating. I think the Indian viewer has moved past the days of a silly song and a bunch of people in a stadium.

I really like the ad for some chewing gum in which they hold the midget after he sees the mafia throwing the body over the bridge! Really funny!!! BTW is it Saif Ali Khan in the ad? Looks remarkably like him.

Another one I like is the new Hutch ad about the size of their tariff plans, really cute & well put!

Yea I agree thats probably the worst ad iv seen. Not only is it incredibly annoying but it doesnt even get the visa brandname into your head. I didnt even realize its a visa ad until i saw it a couple of times.

Besides this the Travelchacha.com ad looks like it was made by somoene whose never used a camera or written a script before.

One ad that i really liked is the Ashok Leyland ad where the Ashok Leyland is so obsessed with trucks that he does lots of stuff with his kid and everything involves a truck.

Also the Chlormint ad - "Bhaiyya Aap Chlormint kyu khaate ho" - "Dubaara Mat Poochna" is really good.

I like the TimesJob.com advt. - "Salary making you feel small" as I can empathise with the guy in the advt..... even though I doubt I'll use the service of Timesjob.com.
The new Hutch advts on the 3 rate plans is nice. Good message execution.

Not-so-good advts -
American Express advt with Little B (Abhishek). What is the advt message, God only knows!
Some interior decor advt, where the family forces a friend of the husband to come see their house. Really dumb far-fetched ridiculous sequence.


I really do not see anything great of most of the celebrity advts. Most of the best advts are those done by non-celebrities.
