Even TOI has got the same ad with the speaker today. Btw, this is in Bangalore. The idea is innovative, but it irritating too. One has to cover the sensor all the time to shut it up

The blackberry vodafone ad is very nice. The look on the faces of those wearing suits, as they see the casually dressed people singing & dancing along with them is very good.

Has anyone observed a goof-up in the new Passion Pro's ad? The lady initially calls up a taxi, but when she catches up finally with the guy in Passion Pro in the traffic jam, it seems like she's in the backseat of a black WagonR.

A black WagonR & taxi? I haven't seen any so far.



Its a sweet ad though

Hate the TATA Ace Ad, aired recently. KBC style!

I hated the Tata Ace ad. Sounds very irritating. Tata ads used to be outstanding earlier, wonder what happened. May be cost-cutting on marketing.

The new Skoda Laura ads seem very nice and pleasing.

Its not a goof up i guess. Just notice when she is crossing the road, there are quite a few wagon r taxis on the other side. Yes, a good ad indeed, rare from HH stable.

Note from Team-BHP Support: Please do not quote videos and large posts as it inconveniences our mobile and other users. Thanks

There is a much bigger goof-up in this advertisement which nobody has noticed.

The lady accepts her mistake on the road and actually says sorry !

A lady who accepts her mistake on the road and says sorry - I haven't seen any so far.

+1.
From the old Sierra ads, the Indica V2 till the Safari ads. But not the new Safari ad, where the two guys go flying and the confusion following later. Sucks big time.

yes Jeeva, The new Safari Ad "now for 7.85L" is a very confusing. Three friends lost in sea and friends doing sky jumping. BAD AD! Tata need improvement.

Yes the old Passion pro ad "Yaar hey zindagi" nice song and nice theme. I like both ads, the one when the signal changes and everyone expecting the biker to use kicker

and

the one discussed here "toy siren to scare fighting men"

Thumbs up. Did not notice the goof-up though.

Have you guys seen that VIP vests ad where the guy detaches a compartment from the train when rowdies in that compartment cause disturbance by singing loudly at night?! That has to be worse than the JK cement ad!
