The new Raymonds ad. Feels sad to see the teacher sitting in some old age home. What he seemed to preach at college, did not seem to work at home for himself

It's a sweet, conventional & old-school kinda ad. What I really liked is that it's crisp & the message gets conveyed easily.

ps: the cute Jumbo & his antics manage to bring a smile to one's face.
A tidbit...the guy playing security guard was great at the comic roles he used to do earlier.

The Champions League ad starring Amitabh Bachhan is ridiculous. What sense does it make to make an old man jump up and down about a sports tournament??

Earlier, the T^T^ Safari ads used to be nice. Why this sudden display of desperation in the new ads?

What else can one expect from a man who, for making some money had said "U.P. mein jurm kam hain.", and when criticized for saying so went on to justify it saying that his comments were based on statistical data!(U.P. being the place of his birth!).

Have you guys noticed the TVS tyres ad lately?
The rider and his female pillion comes in a bike. A truck carrying some big rolls loses control and spills out the load on to the road. A kid is shown playing in the background.
The road sense thing or whatever TVS calls, come out of those tyres and save the whole situation.
Road sense of whatever..I find it utter nonsense.

Nice ad.

I liked the 'values' part more than the picturisation itself.
Those are the values i personally choose to practice every single day.

Didn't find it in this thread hence posting. I don't know whether Audis are that good but nice ad nonetheless.




BTW who else finds the Max Bupa ads irritating?

Is that an ad by Audi themselves? I think it should be by some importer of the car at some country. The English is a bit off!!

And guys, have you seen the recent ad by Style-Spa furniture? Hubby and wife get all romantic for their 'first' wedding anniversary (as indicated by the single candle) and just as they are getting into their bed, the baby starts crying. Well, the baby is definitely at least 1-1/2 years old. First wedding anniversary and a 1-1/2 year old baby?? hmmm...

The Coke advertisement - My Mom's food is the best.

I fail to understand how Mom's food is related to Coke.

Or do they expect us to have carbonated beverages every time we eat a home cooked meal ?

My all time fav is the Cadbury's ad, where the guy hits a six and his girl prances on the field...Kinda stupid but hit the right spot!

"Kuch Khaas hai zindagi mein"!!
