Talk of worst ads and just one names comes to mind - Nirma !!!!
I wonder how such ads get approved by a company and how an ad agency can get such lousy ideas !!!

3)One more very good advt rather public message is the save tiger and in particular the one in which the cub will be waiting for its mom and as loud gun shot is heard
especially the last one. The cub looks so cute. I applaud Aircell for taking up this cause. Aircell has partnered with WWF (not the wrestling org) to lend voice to the issue. Interested people can 'Join the roar' at Save Our Tigers | Home

btw, there are only 1411 tigers left in the wild

The worst one is new Nirma ad, pathetic! And the best one these days is Save Tigers, where a cub is roaming alone in the jungle!

One of the worst ads lately has been that of the Videocon cell phones. Wonder what they are trying to convey with those stunts. Pathetic!

I agree! There is no relation between the product advertised and the ad.

I like the Ambuja Cement advert.
Its very simple, low budget stuff but it works.

A guy sits outside a newly constructed house. He tells the camera, that he wanted the best materials. So when it came to cement he chose Ambuja. Although it cost him maybe 3-4 rupees more. And goes on to add that the house required only 500 bags of cement. That an extra 1,500 is worth the quality.

I liked this advt.

Agree. Also the other ad where that guy sits on the toilet and drives a car. Dumb Ads. Never will visit the site just cos of these ads.
