IMHO most of the insurance, bank and real-estate Co. ads are the worst in terms of concept, handling and direction.

I guess that song was made for the ad.
BTW I find the music in this ad and the earlier one(library ad) pretty weird, in the sense it gives me really bad vibes.

But new Bank of India ads are good

Worst - New Chevy Cruze ad - Promote rash driving and racing on road. Highly irresponsible

It is the same as the SX4 ad which is not to be seen these days. I wonder how these ads are approved by the manufacturer. These ads are just showing them in bad light.

The ibibo melons ad sucks big time. One gets an impression that it is for a porn website. Cheap stuff!!

In my opinion the latest Rin washing powder is the worst these days. How can they show the Tide powder (their arch rival these days) this clearly in the Ad.

Its scary to think if all the companies follow the trend.

IIRC Horlicks and Complan already did that earlier - even Coke and Pepsi have done it already.

Think about the healthly ad wars - BMW , Audi, Mercedes, etc.

What about Micromax advt? Rannvijay does his hair styling using mobile. Pathetic!

OT: I am in love with this headbanging icon. Miss it while mailing and FBing.
