This ad is a word to word copy of the dialogue between Robin Williams and Matt Damon in Good Will Hunting.

i think the "SURF EXCEL" new advertisement featuring" ROSY MISS" is quite a wonderful piece of advertising creativity. Add to it the catchy background music.

i personnaly liked that advertisement after the CADBURY's dairy milk ad "cricket, lady entering the field after his cricketer boy-friend hits a six of the last ball".
that was fun.

That advt is a lift from a VW commercial. A guy approaches his car and finds that all parked cars are covered in snow. He struggles to clear the windsheild , windows and wipers off snow with his hands as he doesn't have a snow brush to do it. Just as he manages to finish the job the car door's unlock and another guy giving him a weird look drives off! I can't find that advt on you tube right now.

One of the recent worst advertisement:

Nerolac Paints.
Check out the expressions of the lady in the background towards the ugly puppet!

That's interesting. This advt used to be shown during training breaks at VW Canada's HQ to us. They always blanked out the coffee part and since the car in question is a VW, we all assumed it was a creative VW advt. Those sneaky Germans!

The *new* Hero Honda HUnk commercial and the Hyundai Santro - bar bar dekho ad - are the latest ones in the worst ad series.

Last night I saw a few old ads from the 80s and early 90s shown on the occasion of Doordarshan completing 50 years. Took me back on a nostalgia trip.

I got to say I really loved those ads. Some of my favourites are

1. Cadbury's - the 'kya swad hai zindagi main' jingle was very nice
2. Bajaj Scooter - The hamara bajaj jingle was very very catchy
3. The titan jingle
4. Hajmola - where the kids hide from their masterji and eat Hajmola
5. Nescafe

There are lots more
