Same here! There's a newer version being shown but I prefer this one. Either way, makes me feel warm and happy about the world.

Remember guys??
I think it is of MAX NEW YORK LIFE pension plans.
It also has an addition to its previous one with the same characters in which the old man tells his wife that they have to attend the marriage of someones daughter who is not his relative but someones neighbor.Any one remembers it

The Wagon R ad with Madhavan! Its outright stupid. Like the car has given him pathbreaking ideas to do farming and grow Apples!
First I thought it was something to do about some apple/juice company and in the final second he is standing next to car which gives us a faint hint that its about the car! Sheesh!!
And I thought the MK II from TATA was bad!

Currently top on my "I Hate" list is the series of Fast Track ads ( Move On) ...

The IDBI ads with the kid and the elephant are kind of cute ...

But the one featuring a Tamil guy is awesome, my favourite.
He explains different girls, one goes like this
"then came RANI..Amma said 'ithellam venda raja, let's move on'"

Who have seen the new Jaguar XXXX series bathroom fittings add, it just shows different and nice bathroom accessories with an awesome background music.

Default Sattire on auto ads

We see lot of ads on TV about cars and bikes. I think it is about time we had a thread poking fun at these ads where there is scope. Just for laughter and nothing else. It should be taken in lighter vein and laughed off and not to be taken to heart. Readers please step forth and contribute.

Here is my take on VW ad. VW fans, please take this in lighter spirit and don't pick up arms. This is a satttire on the ad and not on VW cars. I love VW cars, too.

Kid: Can I book this VW for my 24th birthday when I become vice president.

Salesman: Sure can.

Kid: And book this one for my 26th birthday when I become the CEO.

Salesman: Yessiree!

An onlooker at this point: And book a prison cell for this kid on his 28th birthday when he gets arrested for financial scam, tax evasion, embezzlement, cooked audit books and for bleeding his company to death.

Before you scream sacrilege, remember Enron, Satyam and host of other corporate giants ending belly up in India, US and elsewhere.
