Yes you oaf, whoever conceptualized this. Takes the cake as far as negative advertisements go and his accent, typical local airport one.
I think the makers of the ad took that slogan literally and made that stupid ad . I find most of Hero Honda's ads to be stupid, but CBZ ads take the cake.

Hmm. Now let me try.

@KRRaj, I think you are right and agree with you.

After watching both the ads that are being aired, I came to this conclusion.

Two friends (A and B) have gone to do Sky diving and just as they are about to go for it A mentions that the new safari starts at ???? price. Now here's the catch. Generally when someone goes for such adrenaline filled activities they should be thrilled with excitement.

But in this case B is so surprised by the revelation that he is not ready to believe A and even while diving he is not able to feel the adrenaline and concentrate on the activity. They both continue to argue and due to lapse in concentration end up in sea or water body. Even after this B is not able to come out of his surprise and the resulting dis-belief.

. I think Tata guys or the ad agency wanted to convey the fact that Safari at such a price is too good to believe, but Tata is offering that for the customers. Thats what I think the ad tries to convey.

Fine, lets look at it, memento style.
Both friends are travelling in the Safari, driving towards the sea when one tells the other who is trying out the vehicle about the new price it comes at. He shrieks in excitement, and they end up in the sea.

Forgive my vivid imagination.

Love the new Honda Jazz (Why so serious) ad showing the excitement on kids faces!

Agree with Maverick - that ad made me think to myself, who so serious? The expressions on the kids faces are so priceless. Also the music is very catchy. Very rarely do the Japs and Koreans make ad that connects at an emotional level

Funny to see people here trying to decipher the Tata Safari ad. How can we understand the ad, when most probably the brand manager himself did not. I seriously think that the brand manager would be having the same expression as the guys in the water - a puzzled one!!

Another ad thats getting on my nerves recently is the aquaguard 'pani ka doctor' one. Getting on my nerves really

This ad is so dumb and irritating!




Another third class ad is that Santoor-"Dinner nahi...disco!" ad.

+1. The 'Bring Back The Feeling' tag is superb. Any Auto enthusiast should be able to relate to this ad!

This was kind of similar to the 'Why do I race?' Apache RTR ad.

Hindu Newspaper readers, Did you notice the VW Vento AD on the last page with an attached speaker mostly seen on greeting cards, very innovative to the say the least. Never seen anything like on newspaper.
