Tata Manza. Fantastic Ad. Hitting the Japanese (Suzuki and Toyota) in one shot.

You can use the condom to protect the mobile phone from scratches.

Move over Rajinikanth, the new hyper stars are Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar and Hritik Roshan.
Can anyone else from any other film-industry jump from that kind of a height or dodge a crocodile for a cold-drink?! Or get back one's cap from a twister!
Even Rajini can't!!
A Bharat Ratna each, and a few doctorates here and there for the three.


The life insurance ad with the 90 year old father and 65 year old son is brilliantly innovative!


The Marie biscuit ad with the girl struggling to dip it in tea, while in the train and finally succeeding, with a little help from fellow passengers is sweet.


After Sachin proved that he is GOD in the Ujala ad, a few ancient Demigods like Kapil Dev, Arjuna Ranatunga, Steve Waugh etc., in an attempt to prove their lost-divinity have taken it upon their holy-selves to keep cricket clean....how? by urging us to "get !dea" (IIRC the son of the Big GOD i.e. Abhishek Bachchan, has been doing this for quite a while).

Once the whole nation starts using !dea cellular, there shall be no match fixing or any other form of cheating. WAH WAH! The ad is the next best thing to surrogate advertising.

This one , IMHO, does not deserve to be on prime time TV.

Guy 1 comes in with a phone that suspiciously looks like a Corby (No offense Samsung owners, its one phone which has bright interchangable back covers) and is tendered some candy as she didnt have change.

Guy 2 comes with a 'Masculine phone and gun metal finish' that 'impresses' her and she gives him a condom.

Please dont insult the maker of the ad if you didnt follow it

PS: I am not associated with the maker of the ad

Reminds me of the recent Hitler spoofs. Then again, the ad could have ended as:

But is it Japanese ?
Does it have Japanese build & quality ?
NO !

I didn't understand the last part of the ad. Who is the guy they put in the boot and why?? Targeting the kidnapping mafia ?
