Of late the frequent cadbury AD is getting on to my nerves.

Perk AD is good, one of the best ADs in recent times, conveys the message. I tried Glucose Perk last week & it did give me a boost.

Lifebuoy AD where a woman goes to a doctor - very bad, First time the doctor ask something, woman replies OK I will get lifebuoy, another problem, again lifebuoy, this goes on & on... What a silly AD..

BMW AD - nice, don't exactly recollect it

This is not on Indian TV, but in Australia about smoking.

I hate the little boy shouting <something> during the FIFA world cup games. Is that an ad? If it is, then its very annoying!

I found one - The Pan Vilas ad with Manoj Bajpai. It's a classic.

Seems to be the 28-300mm f3.5-5.6 L IS. So I guess that should be OK. But even 70-200mm also do an excellent job for people photography. So tele zooms also should be ok I guess.

Following recent one are great:

1. Football anthem ringtone, Vodaphone

2. Micromax people are getting very creative.

3. Nokia E series.

Following are hopeless.
1. That Anil Kapoor daughter's Spice mobile ad. , whats her name.

2. Rajnigandha ad.

3. Frooti ad is utter non-sense

The boy is supposed to be shouting something in Afrikaans which translates to 'Lets go' or 'Lets play' or 'Lets start' or something like that. Even the referees are supposedly using this phrase to start games. Don't know for sure though.

Did anyone notice that in the Tata Indigo Manza (something's missing) advertisement, the drink (which the model enjoys sitting inside the car) has been changed from champagne to orange juice !

What could be the reason ?

The car is shown as being chauffeur driven, there should be no problem if the rear passenger is shown enjoying an alcoholic beverage while seated in the car.
