Feel like a laugh? This ad will have you

Note the expressions of the guys, especially the bored, uninterested bald chap. So realistic man. And how the bag falls on that young dude…CLASSIC!

Love this ad ,





A piece of advice to all you guys who participate in drags or rallies. Buy this watch if you want to ensure your victory. Even if your car or bike is the pits, you shall win.

Default The worst taste in advertising yet ?

This is not an ad on TV, but on location /public place. How could any one even think of putting this ad in such a place ?!!

^^Few months ago, on a platform at a Mumbai railway station, I had seen the yellow strip(marked with white arrow) covered with 'Khatron Ke Khiladi' strips, for promoting the latest season of the TV show.

How ludicrous is that?! As if the life-threatening antics of commuters at railway stations weren't enough!

Cant express how good i feel on seeing this. It was such an awesome ad. It changed my outlook towards life. Tata sure gave the Safari the respect it deserved.

And the ad for the Safari GX now is also excellent. The SUV looks menacing coming out of the grasses. For one moment it feels as if the whole world has come to a halt.

Default Re: The BEST & the WORST Advertisements on TV

Just came across this SBI Life Insurance ad on TV yesterday, guess its a new one - never seen before.
Believe me, this is really the worst I have seen in advertising. And that too coming from a public sector bank like SBI.
The ad shows a middle aged couple riding on an old bajaj scooter, wife complaining why the hubby didn't take the car out instead. The man immedeately applies brakes and says that you dont get "this kind of fun" in car - if you know what he means.What are the SBI guys upto??
Thats really a cheap portrayal of the mid aged couple and god only knows what this has to do with insurance. It'll really make you uncomfortable if you watch this ad with family / parents.
On the contrast, I remember another financial product ad that has couple singing on the tunes of " ham jab honge sath saal ke.....". I found that one pretty romantic and it used to bring a smile every time I saw it.
Beware of the SBI ad guys.
