Few of the best ads in recent times
1) Tata Safari -Reclaim your life series. The background music is haunting.
2) Also loved the P220 ad with the rock version of "Hamara BAjaj" playing in the background.
3) Loved the Mastercard ads potraying a bunch of friends reuniting after ages.

Worst Ads:
1) Saffora where the guy shakes those dirty crap looking oil drops from the body.
2) Dominies for its extreme gross illustration.
3) DOCOMO-what does it want to tell?????

I hate the recent Nirma Ad. what was she thinking. The oldest Nirma ad had a cult status, this one is outright stupid.

This would qualify for the, "How not to remake a iconic yesteryear ad campaign"

Best ads according to me...
Kotak - You think your child will become something just by investing money?
Bingo chillies(or whatever)- The guy catches girl's kiss in his shirt pocket and pocket catches fire.
All most every fevicol ad from past to present.
TATA sky active english learning ad, lady speaking hinglish and later speaking excellent english.
Tata tea jaago re ads

Worst ones....
All most all hero honda ads.
Some cooking oil ad, lady wanting to spread oil in pan but instead of moving pan, she is moving herself - pathetic.
"Thandai" ads.
Most celebrity being brand ambassador ads.

+1. All Hero Honda ads are pathetic. Liked the new Bingo ad as well. The girl in the ad is kinda cute.

I would say all Fevicol ads are among the best.

Have you seen the Battery Ad where the + & - terminals flys into a home and lights it up? Very bad & Useless. Can't even rember the name of the Battery!!

I also hate that Nirma ad - the message might be coming across but the execution is pathetic.

Another bad ad - is the AB Jr and his wife's soap ad - YUCKKKKKK !!

Another one is SRK asking to use Men's cream to look like him (use a cream and look like a monkey ? )

The Master card one with Purani Jeans song track is very nice.
The Bingo ad with that female. She has very nice expressions.
Vodafone zeezoos/bozos/zoozoos/whatever are starting to get boring.
Dish TV with SRK and their adopted daughter is very warm and nice.

One more to add - Parents come to railway station to drop their son, where a pretty girl is sitting next to him.

Dunno if its been mentioned but the Discovery Channel's ad "The world is just awesome" is a great one! Really liked its video and the song too! Top class!

Just saw one of the most dumbest commercial for mattresses where a mother is coercing her child to go to sleep and he does not want to. So she carries him to his bed on the 'magic' mattress and lo, the very moment he falls into it, he goes off to la la land... zzzzzzzzzz. Bah!

Why do they waste so much money on stupidity? Feel like ... Do they think people are dumb?
