You can forgive Yuvi for forgetting to wear seat belt while grinning
BTW Aveo-UVA takes the whole football team - where did they find 7 more seat belts ?

The Honda Jazz barely finds a driver - there are giving 4 more seatbelts ...maybe thats the reason for the price.

Anyone seen the new KFC advt for Krushers.

It features Nauheed Cyrusi drinking a krusher like she means it.


I give the advt a 1/ 10
KFC ads were bad now they are just gross.

Maybe if she was in her black saree, I would reconsider the points.

Then there is 'Unwanted' ad which claims they are No 1. iPill to claim they are No 1.

Just to fill their pockets with money, these guys are indirectly encouraging unprotected sex, and how clever the mother does not mention that the iPill does not protect against STDs and can have serious long term side effects.

Yeah, Even this ad encourages unprotecteed sex.
Dont think this ad delivers the right message.
They can come up with many creative ideas to deliver the right message.

Chloromint ad was different. The ending of that ad was too good. Didnt expect that coming.

This should be classified as 'PJ ADs'

I think all choloromint ads are like this.

Looks like advt agencies are hooked to make commercials on flights.

The other bad one is the Colgate "Salt" one where the entire News crew with Cameras and a News reporter lands on flight to hand out a Colgate "Salt" pack for a toothache I guess

Ads I liked

The Feviquick Ad: Fisherman sticking glue to this wooden stick and catching fish. His expression at the end of the ad is priceless.

Airtel ads: I like all of them. But I liked the one where two boys are playing football in the war zone

I like the latest cola ad where a boy and girl are in the library. The graphics are subtle and neat.

I love the new Kinley Mineral Water Ad. Especially the lady in the Bookstore and the the last part of the old man completing the marathon while the hoardings are being removed. The background score is good too. Nice..

The new Cadburys Dairy Milk ads which are retro styled "Pehli taariq hai, Kuch Meetha Ho Jaye" really leaves a bad taste. I think they wanted to drill the message to say that MEETHA means their product ala TANDA meaning coca cola. very badly put. Concept seems fine but the creation seems down & dusted

Honestly i fail to understand the cactus part along with the 'serious' tag.

OT- Saw first Jazz today on road and it looks decent imo.

The Hamam soap ad, where the mom runs behind her daughter after forgetting to name the soap and thinking about the consequences aloud? That takes the cake as the worst ad of all. The lip sync in Tamil is highly irritating!
