Silly ad of the year : The new i20. Bunch of kids playing music on the streets, cops arrive and they zoom off elsewhere to some rooftop.

I mean, if you have to try to be cool, you won't ever end up cool.

Dont these idiots sitting in adv. agencies have any sense of decency left. A mom making her son act like a dog and son rolling in dirt to get his clothes stained. what are they trying to teach the audience. How much they can stoop to sell their product. Unilever should be ashamed and withdraw this ad immediately.
One of the most disgusting advertisments, ever

+1, I love only this portion of the ad. I don't understand how Kinley fits in that scenario.

The worst part of this ad is when a girl pours water from the bottle to the army man. They could have shown the girl giving the bottle to him. It portrays the army man to be an untouchable

Still I don't understand why some village home keeps stock of Kinley during a war??

the uber-lame i20 ad, up due to popular demand

Why can't they ever make an ad in which you want to buy the car?

Guess either you haven't watched the ad properly or you have missed the beginning.

The kid goes to cheer up his school teacher who is feeling sad after her dog has died - I like the ad.

Watch it again and let us know what you feel.

This ad actually borders on child abuse. i have written a letter to the company about this. i doubt they will respond, but let's see what happens.
