Since when you started paying attention to Sanitary Napkin adverts?
Yup, the claims made are really DRY

When advertisements defy all laws of Physics, one is forced to take notice.

Isn't there some agency where one can report false claims made by advertisements ? Do we get some reward for reporting such ads ?

What about the chlormint chewing gum ad with salman khan and a bunch of cows, just got sick watching it. Had to watch it as I was on phone and the remote was nowhere near me.

The recent Maruti Suzuki ads are excellent! The one with VM lookalike (shopping for yacht) takes the cake!

All beauty cream ads are the worst ones!! Just the same beauty and success pitching! Really ugly!

These kinda of advertisements are nothing but just playing with the Indian Emotions and increasing there sales. I would say clever marketing gimmick

Whatever it is, it's effective. People, including yours truly, love this kind of marketing gimmicks. Dairy milk ad is really good.

On the other hand I absolutely hate the new TVS scooty ad. First of all, the background music is total mismatch. The singer doesn't seem to be able to match the tempo of music, hence lagging behind. Secondly, the color of scooty won't change everyday, then what's the point in matching three different lipsticks to the color of scooty? And lastly, why would a man, with reasonably hot chick in his car, would ogle at a teen behaving cheaply on a traffic signal?

And which class buys Maruti cars? I mean what is the largest base of Maruti car buyers? And there you'll get your answer


Just show this ad in the youtube, check it

The ice cream seems to be vanilla flavour only.

Can we get different flavour of ice cream if the cow is made to eat flavoured chewing gum ?
