The 2nd installment of the Pepsi ad is even more absurd than the 1st. What a waste of money !

Tne Micromax mobile ad just got more irritating with the other chef joining in the (supposedly) infectious laughter ! ughhhh...

The Vodafone zoo zoo ad for flight information makes me smile.

The Youngistaan game series has got to be the worst ad campaign of the Millennium!

The new DOCOMO ad campaign continues to get onto ones nerves.

Saw the 3rd installment of the Pepsi ad.

I could not understand what Sanjay Dutt is trying to say - Baraf ki baarish hogi, Maina kaid mein hogi, something.

The 3 options were - A: wind chime, B: ice and C: birg cage, IIRC.

Could someone explain to me ?

They just keep getting worse and worse.

+1. They even had the Zoozoos on Extra innings on Set Max yesterday. The host of the show asked them about the match and the Zoozoos responded albeit in their own language

This ad is proof that there still exist people who know their craft...art, rather!
Though I must admit, the shortened version which is aired on TV is more entertaining.
The guy's expressions are brilliant.

+1.

This ad is simply brilliant. It makes you think is India truly this Incredible? ( YES is the answer).

This commercial urges you to explore it.

The new Tanishq ad is simply warming. I loved the presentation. The content was anything but real. But very well presented.

Are you referring to the advertisement in which a daughter visits a Tanishq store along with her parents and her mother makes her to try wedding jewelery even when the daughter was not interested in getting married ?

Why do you say that the content is not real ?

Women are known to be materialistic, and the mother uses this knowledge to her advantage by luring her daughter with expensive jewelery so that she agrees to get married.

Didn't you see how the advertisement ends. The mother sends a SMS to the father - Been married 25 years and you still don't understand women. I guess the same applies to you too.

BTW, I really loved the ad too.

Rohaaaan! Pai! Which girl is going to get married
just because her parents are getting her
expensive jewellery. She can get married to
a pauper and still her parents can get her
the same set of jewellery.

She can get married to an IITain and still
get the same set. I do not feel, in real
life any girl would marry
just because she is getting expensive metal
on her body making it heavier.

Absolutely!

The adv may have exaggerated it a bit, but the point is that the mother was trying to convey to her daughter the perks of being married.

That is how you feel (being a man). But there is a great difference in the thought process of men and women. Women may be strongly attracted by things which we men find insignificant or irrelevant.

Man's best friend is dog (which symbolises trust and faith) whereas a woman's best friends are diamonds (which symbolise materialism).

Get the opinion of a female family member on this advertisement. They would be in a better position to throw some light on this matter.
