Its a 3L, 4x4 AT Endeavour, which gets tubeless tyres, then what is the tube this guy is doing with

Also, the tyre is lying on the ground with the tyre not taken off from the alloys.
SBI do make good ads for TV though!

But their service everywhere is useless.

I hate the ZMR ad. the Hrithik one. ANd it comes so many times during FIFA 2010 i get a headache. Anyway they are paying for our match, so we have to get over it.

The little girl placed the kitten in a rectangular plant/flowerpot, not a trash-can.

I agree with you. I hate that ad. I think most of Hero Honda's ads are stupid.

The New "Monster.com" ad is funny and at the same time conveys the message.

Maruti's latest series of advertisements - Kitna deti hai ?

A rich guy buying a yatch and a military officer buying a military vehicle asking the same question - kitna deti hai ?

Horrible advertisements. Both of them.

Actually it exactly portrays the mindset of any general indian public. You buy anything (doesn't matter if it's 800 or Merc) the first question asked will be "what is the mileage" or "Kitna deti hai" in hindi

One irritating ad I found is that Spice ads with 2 guys fighting over Brazil or Argentina to win the world cup. What irritates me more is that the expression of the other people in the bus as if no one else in India gives a damn about Football except two particular states.

Add me to the group hating the ZMR ad.
I personally like most of the fevicol ads. The vodafone zoo zoo ads were also interesting.

For me, currently Samsung LED TV ad tops the list. Its a beautiful ad with a great background score. For an all time favourite i would choose the Bajaj Avenger Ad. Not sure how many of you remember this one, but there used to be ad where a guy forgives his dad, girlfriend and everyone because he feels like GOD!! Love that one.

Actually these "Kitna deti hai" advertisements only portray the mentality of middle class cost conscious buyers.

But Maruti are trying to portray as if all Indians, including the filthy rich, think in the same way.

Looks like Maruti is overplaying its USP of FE and cheap maintenence through such silly advertisements, instead of trying ko keep pace with better products in the market.

I love the Cadbury Shots ad, where a robber tries to escape from police, in the process, he scares a fruit vendor, but drops the money into the vendors box, face reaction of the vendor guy is too good.

This ad really sucks big time. Its horrible to see the monkey faces of characters in it and the lady dancing to their tunes.

Then there's this detergent ad, in which a little boy snarls and barks and what not.. to impress his teacher. Pathetic one!

I wonder, the toilet cleaner ads are always aired when we are having breakfast/lunch or dinner. The guy comes and exclaims "Are you ready for the challenge?" and then the camera zooms straight into the...

You hit nail on the head.
All these advertisements,with stupid creatures shouting,"Ye Jaggu Jaundice hai or watever".
They are aired,during lunch time or dinner time.
