, Irritating, to say the least. I've really lost count of how many new mobile companies are airing their ads during the IPL. Even the videocon mobile ad is irritating.

Silly ad, it's about lengths people go to drink Pepsi. It's shown that he tries to create suspicion by hiding behind a pillar and shown mixing something in the Pepsi to be served to the President. He knows the cctv is watching him. So when he goes near the Prez office, he is forced to drink the pepsi which is what he wants.

Docomos are good. Hate that Akshay's laugh in the mobile ad, it's gross. Also, I kinda liked the Lays ad starring Dhoni and his fan, quite humorous.

MicroMaxx and karbonn are now having an official contest to decide who can produce the worst ad.
I think Akshay makes sure MicroMax wins this contest.

The Docomo ads somehow seem imitations of Virgin and Airtel!
I like the one with the friends haviong a black eye, but the one at the party where the guy and the girl switch partners has the worst acting and emotions possible!

Vodafone Zoo-Zoo ads are the best. I really like all of them.

Pet Hates :
1. LG 3D and Akshay's laugh in some mobile ad.
2. Virendra sehwag and Gowtham Gambhir in yet another mobile ad.
3. Pepsi ad with Ranbir kapoor.
4. Castrol ad, where two boys try to pop up every where in SA.

New Airtel ads are good. Especialy one where the boy asking money to his father for friend's birthday. I too hate the Micromax one, I change channel whenever this particular ad starts.

Default New Voltas Ad

Kind of liked the new Voltas ad where kids do a nice jingle - IIRC it sings about Simple and Sensible.
