One of the most irresponsible ads I have seen. Just because you put a tiny disclaimer at the bottom does not give you the freedom to show anything as an ad!

Micromax Q5:
I agree with you, this AD has poor content and poor presentation. What they are trying show is not clear.

For me,
Best Advertisement : Tata Docomo, the Do Doo Do tune in the train is too good.
Worst Advertisement : IBIBO

Think about the healthly ad wars - BMW , Audi, Mercedes, etc.
When I first saw the Horlicks ad where Complan is shown, I thought that their parent companies were merged or taken over and that they were closing down the Complan brand. Later, I found out that this was not true.

The most disgusting part about this ad is that the dog's voice is made to sound like that of Amrish Puri! These guys don't even spare people who are no more!

Default Sar Utha Ky Jiyo

The worst ad I have seen off late is the HDFC life insurance.

Two friends sitting in a taxi, one is going out of town (Friend 1), the other (Friend 2) is accompanying him/dropping him to the station.

Friend 2: Have you taken everything, make sure you are not forgetting anything

Friend 1: Oh!, I forgot to give some money to my wife. (Takes out some money from purse) here, give this to your bhabi. (as if his wife is not having an account with enough money or he cannot transfer money online!!)

Friend 2: Will this much be sufficient?

Friend 1: Here, take some more.

Friend 2: What if you trip is extended will this be enough?

Friend 1: ...Thinking...

Friend 2: What if you don't return at all, will the money be enough for your family for the rest of your life!!!!!?????!!!!!?????? (Dost hai ki dushman!!!, waht kind of a question is this???)

HOW MUCH MORE STUPID CAN YOU GET?

HDFC Life Insurance... SAR UTHA KEY JIYO (Mera sar!)

I Personally hate a detergent ad where a small cute kid is made to act like a dog by his granma or somebody.

It seemed very disgusting

Surf Excel Ad. There was a debate on this Ad just a few pages back. Sick Ad.

Jayabusa i think they are not copying the voice of Late Amrish Puri. The voice of the animated dog sounds like the voice of Raza Murad.
