The Swift ad had my attention for a while but was disappointed when they did not mention anything on the specs.

Are we in for a new engine (not the K-series) and rally spec suspension?

The brand is SF Sonic batteries. I liked the ad too

The Ad for child plan of Bajaj or HDFC, which I forget but which has that kid of 4-5 years asking -
kid- papa have you thought about this?
papa- what son?
kid- have you thought about my future?
papa- seeing stars and wondering.

such a badly done senseless Ad.

Coca-Cola's latest ad, featuring Aamir Khan is certainly the most "baqwaas" ads. Aamir: Don't you guide ad directors like movie directors?

, till date among all star ads, Aamir's have been the best, but I just don't understand why he's doing the Parle-G 'Gapi aunty' ad after the superb Parle Monaco ad and the idiotic gaming ad after a series of brilliant Coca-cola ads over so many years!

Did you guys see the ING Vyasa advert for a lost/stolen debit card ? Absolutely bang on. For those who missed it:
A person is running behind a theif who has stolen his debit card.
After a while a postman joins the chase and running behind the earlier 2.
Finally the theif gets the better of them and the victim is left panting, huffing and puffing. The postman catches up and delivers an envelop which has a new replacement card in it. Fast, very fast. Made me smile.

Give it a try. Afterwards, you might just be making sure that those rear seat belts are working, and that they get used.

thats a hardcore one. I am going to put seat belts in the back of my car now..it did not come with factory fitted ones. and whoever sits in the car (back or front) better wear one.

If this can happen, don't Indian car Co's know this. How many actually provide rear seat belts?
