The guy in the boot is the one who tells "We have to buy one immediately".
But I found this ad silly. They could have added things like Do we have engines borrowed from the Italians? Do we have 5cm panel gaps? Do we have sub-par A.S.S? Come on TATA, up your game and then talk, please!

The ads are made to highlight and exaggerate the positives of a product.
Ads are not a fact finding mission.

I don't like the ICICI Prudential Ads with the BigB, where BigB barges into some guy's family conversation and tells him to sign on the Insurance application form. If some Insurance agent does that to me, I would tell him to shove it ( even if it was the Big B himself ).

Undoubtedly this has to be the best car Ad running right now.

How about the latest reliance ad. Where the big guy drives a moped with great sound(no speed) and a sports bike vrooms past him and puts the moped guy in shame. This ad resembles the scene of Mr Bean in his holidays.

but I liked the moped guys expression at the last

Following ads really hammered into my head yesterday during ICC world cup.
1. Parryware time for a loo break. Just noted the dialogues -" Need a Look break? Parryware, wow what a bathroom" . The end. A very pathetic co-ordination between the screen writer and the script writer.

2. Hritik roshan escaping the tsunami on his ZMR ending with a Dhak Dhak go. I feel like throwing any stuff in my hands on to the tv.

3. The "New Possibilities" song sung by shaan for hyundai. The lyrics feel like some infrastructure bond ad.

4. The new i10 test ride ad in which the coach runs away from the cricket ground to grab the cricket ball hyundai is giving for a TD. Looks like something fishy going on between the hyundai's marketing deptt and the ad agency working for them.

5. The voltas AC ad. Some singing kids come to one lady's bedroom. I dont know whether they are complimenting her or they are advising her. They are later joined by one elderly fellow. Till date I am unable to make out the lyrics.

BUT
I love all the zoozoo ads. There is heights of creativity without any dialogues.

I quite like the Pepsi ads in which Sehwag, Bhajji, Dilshan, Malinga and even our favourite umpire Billy Bowden feature in. It's pretty funny and never ends without you grinning!

I guess both of you misunderstood the Ad, Here is my interpretation;

The boss asks his team about what they should do to defeat the Manza. Instead of suggesting improvements a guy in front of his boss tells his colleague (buy it immediately). This pisses off the boss and he throws the guy in the trunk for talking about buying a rival product. After which the boss drives off in the Manza (Which is a class apart!)

I think the ad also wants to show the huge boot space of the Manza indirectly.

There you go, you found another point in it.

The interpretation remaining same there are a lot of details that the Ad makers have taken care of you found another advantage of the Manza!

The low buzzing noise when he says, "No Tanuka Sir" is genius, That said it is a very well rounded Ad.

Default Hero Honda Ad - New

HH is known for some lousy ads, offlate a new commercial is been played regularly where a dude wants to make a village to a city, with some sad dialogues and later he posing infront of a call center building with the bike...

Not sure what message they want to give out and how it would benefit the product? a true example of a bad ad!!!
