May be yes. On one hand they increased the prices and will be doing it again i guess and on the other hand they are spending crores on these stupid ads.
With the summers approaching it would have been good to see the good old PEPSI ads with the prices remaining the same.

Has anybody seen that particular 'FROOTI' ad, where everybody makes the sucking and thumping noise

Yeah, but new Slice Mangola's ad (Rassiiiiyyyyaaaa) featuring Kat is bit OK. Benefit of doubt goes to KAT.

This has to be one of the worst advertisements ever made.

Coke's advertisements are much better.

Even I feel the same way. Beyond a certain limit, advertisements don't seem to make any positive difference in the sales.

I would like to know who is the great brain who approves the budget of crores of rupees for selling a 10 rupee product.

Even more amusing are the advertisements worth crores of rupees to sell a 50 paise mint. Thankfully these are off air nowadays.

The Genelia D'souza-Fanta ads are irritating. Must have been conceptualised for the South Indian markets where she is quite popular and later used for airing on national television. They are so louuud!


The Voltas sensible cooling ads with the kids symphony are endearing, especially the tune of the jingle.

Fanta must have hoped to use her popularity to popularise Fanta, but it looks like Genelia's popularity will take a beating after these irritating ads!
The ads would have been better off with some 10 year old kids acting in them!!

Rakhi Sawant could have been a better option for this AD, fanta sales would have skyrocketed because of the oomph attached to her

The one ad that I find most irritating is the one for Cadbury Gems. The ad starts with a voiceover in a Bihari accent "Arrey bhai, yeh panda rangeen kyun hai?"

Don't understand which kid would be tempted to ask his/her parents to buy them Cadbury Gems after seeing a bunch of colorful pandas doing crazy things in a jungle.

Absolutely offtrack for the target consumer! Wonder which ad company made this rubbish ad. And, wonder how the Cadbury top management passed this?

OH yes They have made the normally cute & good looking Panda look ugly. The advert shows the lack of creativity by the Advertising agency.

After the success of the Bingo ad campaign, many Cos tried to tread the path of weird, nonsense yet humorous advertising but have failed miserably.

I liked the Havells ad which has a guy with lot of hair cleaning house, while dancing and breaks a flower vase and looks apologetic , reminds me of my small cousin. Every time i see this i get a laugh instantly.

That small guy is actually a kid.
IMO, this ad should be taken off air as it promotes child labor.
