So true!

This is one stupid ad and i dont know how HH preferred it?
Looking at these ads it feels like they are targeting all the college kids!

HH wake up!

I echo what Lohith says, its tad too kiddish urging the college going kids to pester their parents to buy them these bikes, so that they can also indulge in some death horrifying stunts we see in the bike AD's now a days.

BTW, where will these kids find a twister of that sort in India?

HH ads were dumb and they are getting dumber!!!

Btw, the 'docomo friendship express' ad is just plain silly. I guess they trying to get back at Idea's walk when you talk campaign which is also dumb

I seriously pity the makers of these ads

Seen the new Idea 'Walk when you talk' ads? The one with Shreya chasing a guy making him run when talking on the mobile? Quite dumb, really. Why does he have to run when she comes towards him? For all you know, it could be the Wildstone deo he's wearing that has her coming towards him.

Seems like "docomo" ad makers have got it completely wrong, they have managed to piss off loads of people, in a way they have achieved in drawing the attention but but now people are irritated with the product without using it

Totally agree, i just run for the remote when i see the Docomo advt , to make it worse the next channel also plays the same advt. I think the frequency of the advt should be reduced , its already touched the 'annoying' mode!!

Best thing to mute the TV and look elsewhere for 20 seconds.

Have you guys seen the new Parker Pen ad-"Pehli baar mohabbat ki hain, tan da dan ta da da tan da dan ta da da tan". Ridiculous!

It's funny, but the problem is, it is very difficult to remember the brand. There's nothing in that ad which relates what is being shown to the specific product. I can't remember which battery brand's ad it is.
