God, I hate that ad. Guy is building a call center and rides a Splendour ( or is it a CD Dawn +/#/ Pro/Deluxe ? ) . I agree , most of Hero Honda's ads suck, except for the one Splendor ad where 4 childhood friends meet at their old meeting place after growing up.

On that note, there is this ad of Krishi dhan or something ( is that an ad for some kind of seeds? ) where the son is in the US ( we know it is the US because there is a US Flag on his table ) and is chatting to his family in India on Webcam. The father shows him the new car and excellent harvest due to Krishi dhan. The son gets emotional and says " Main India Aa raha hoon" ( I'm coming back to India ). That ad is Hilariously bad.

Totally hate the ad series for the Micromax Psych cell phones. Must have been created by a psycho, methinks!

Although the new Manza ad seems to have quite a few admirers here, i personally dislike the ad. The only saving grace in it is the background score at the end of the ad.

Yup, at the end it is shown he is standing in front of a massive call centre building (Company name read "NEW INDIA CALL CENTRE").

Yeah, Father shows the new FORTUNER isn't it. But that is 100 times better than HH ad

Another ad I hate is Kareena's stop/dont stop Airtel ad.

The lyrics are something like this: Aunty agar AC sleep mode mein chalaogi, sote sote power aur paise bachaogi.

Translation: Aunty if you use the AC in sleep mode, you would save power and money while sleeping.

Although, not anywhere close to the original pulsarmania ad, this one is a good watch too.
when bike skids, the main stand touches the road, can be seen in the ad. This was the problem with this bike when I bought it in very first allotment.

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

PS: I am not associated with the maker of the ad
It is not about getting the meaning of the ad. But it does not make any sense and looks more cheap than anything.

One's that get on my nerves:

1. Kent Purifier - Everytime i see Hema Malini, i just hope i don't fling my remote towards the TV. Especially when she reiterates, "Aap apna purifier badal rahe ho na, kent laa rahe ho na". I've sworn i'll never buy a Kent Purifier in my life.

2. Suzuki Slingshot - Oye Suzuki Slinga-shota by the Sardarji, then the kid saying "kya?" enough to tear your hair apart.

3. Voltas a/c with the kids singing - This makes me want to permanently damage my ear drums by purposely poking them. Damn.

4. Hyundai (New Possibilities) - Why Shaan? Oh Why? Why do you want me to hate you?

5. Lava with Gunmetal Finish - Sorry i have no change. Seems the Ad is more focused on the masculinity of the phone, than the phone itself. And would like to write some unmentionable's here, but Oopsy. Separate's the men from the boys. Sheesh.

6. Maruti SX4 - Men will be Men. So this guy is driving his SX4 while his bride waits for him. So the pertinent question is... If the SX4 is 'Definitely Male' what's the guy?

7. Orient PSPO - Oh Dhoni. Just because you utter stuff out of your mouth, it does not necessarily mean we like it, gibberish.

8. J. K. Lakshmi Cement - A woman comes out of the pool in a two piece, Vishwaas hai, isme kuch khaas hai. Now, thats a super 'cement' ad.

9. Almost all Body Spray ad's, which cannot be seen with the family. Set Wet, Zatak, etc.

10. Nirma Washing Powder: Where she 'pauses' the water splash & gives the 'still' muddy water a dressing down.

11. The Mirinda Ads - Where Asin wears a moustache. Sone pe suhaaga. Need i say more?

12. Kit Kit: With the Singing Chipmunks. What Originality. What was the Chipmunks name? Alvin? The ad gets on my nerves with the irritating singing.

13. The New Raymond Ad - Where you see a bunch of Meterosexual males bonding too closely & dancing in a Raymond Store. Yikes, i thought it was still about men. Where's my old The Complete Man, Raymonds? God Where?

There are many more, just can't recall all of them at present.

Though the Zoo-Zoos lost their cuteness a while ago, their new 3G Super ZooZoo is the only Ad character which makes me smile when he stops the bullet, however cheesy the Chuck Norris and Rajnikanth jokes have made that particular action.

Another one is an Insurance ad, "Hum jab honge saath saal ke, aur tum hogi pachpan ki" which i like.

Another completely mindless ad is that scooterette one with body balance with those two females very stupidly engaging in circus acrobatics! Who comes up with these kind of crazy ideas!

The IDEA guys have totally lost it with the Champions to keep cricket clean ads.

Which person would ask stupid questions to these great cricketers like,

1) If a person ask about which ball is to be a no-ball what would you ask him to say ?

or

2) If a person asks info about the pitch what would you advise ?

What the hell !! Does she expect these guys to say - yes we should tell them all ????

Totally gets on my nerves !

And that ad proves only one thing -

Indian cricketers are the best actors amongst cricketers from all countries. Just watch Kapil paaji act and then watch Ranatunga and Waugh ads - you will know what I am saying !

For me, the IDEA series of someone saying No idea and Abhishek Bachchan responding with Get idea is one of the worst in recent times. Quite a smug-like response

Colgate Max fresh ad *ing Shahid, Genelia, Sehwag and Gambhir: I love it for the simple reason that none of them got a chance to open their mouth!

Along with the Genelia Fanta ads, the Asin Mirinda ads deserve awards for subtlety and sober performances.
