Exactly, The fact that our roads are full of these DBs is not hidden from any one, that is why I called the company's act irresponsible.

Oh! the VW polo ad campaign on tv is 'as bland as the car itself'.

One of the worst advertisements of recent times - > Underpowered Left hand drive Punto 1.2.
Ridiculous to say the least.

Are you serious or joking? I haven't seen the ad but how does the portrayed patriotism matter when you know it's being used to market/sell products which are extremely hazardous to health. What kind of patriotism is involved in ruining the lives of the citizens of your country?!

IPL Ads from Virgin.

Warning: Watch with low volume. Lot of abuses on there. Not all are good but some of them are awesome.

The Merc add (AMG) is really amazing, reminds me of the scene from Men In Black
If i am not wrong that was a Merc as well. The add sets the pluse racing.

I hope like Jayabusa is hoping too that you were being sarcastic here. Manikchand/pan masala are some of the worst ads to ever hit the tv screen.

Saw the same print AD on 'The Hindu'. It reads

"The Polo Road Handling Test
  1. Gather buffaloes on both sides of the road.
  2. Get a friend to whack them on their rear.
  3. Drive as fast as you can through the herd.
  4. Slip under the Polo as the herd thunders past you."
And get your belly roasted !

Seriously, i wonder how much stupider can the marketing department of VW be.
