The latest Domex advertisement shows a lady wearing a white coat (suggesting that she is a doctor) visits her neighbour's house and after cleaning the toilet with Domex - touches the inside of the commode with her right hand and then gives a hi five to a kid (to prove how effectively Domex cleans the toilet).

Default Salman is the new Rajini!

Another ad which proves that Salman Khan is the new Rajinikanth. And Sohail, the new Vijaykanth.

The new Vodafone ad "Super Email" or something is very nice. Forget what the ad tries to showcase/convey but the way that 3G zoo-zoo flips those mails in all directions is too good.

PS: My 2 year old niece loves it more than cartoons

I love the following ads:

1. The new Airtel Ad - Capt. Avinash Rathod waala. The girl is really cute. Very well made.

2. The Zoo Zoo ads: The TT ad or even the Bowling one. Simply great!

3. Surf Excel: Daag Acchhe hain- Ek sack race ho jaye! What a cute ad.

The Ads i cant stand:

Too many to list!

I hate that Del Monte fruit drink ad. Irritates me to no ends.

Love all the Zoo Zoo ads.

Not that it irritates me. I find it decent, but I wonder who the target audience is? NRIs or wannabes.

Has anyone seen the new Hero Honda Hunk advertisement which proclaims "everybody follows the hunk" in the end.

The ad starts with a chai waala warning the hunk "saab pahadi raastha math lena"
Some cowards who are driving an SUV on mountain roads, get scared on seeing an unlit tunnel. The "hunk" guy passes by stating that "reverse is not an option"(yeah, the Hunk doesn't come with a reverse gear, so reverse ain't an option ) and the SUV guys follow him to the other end of the tunnel.

The ad is simply pathetic.

^^Which comic book or fairytale was the idea taken from, I wonder.

Had the ad been used for a kids bicycle, it would have been a huge success though.
Sale of fantasy, you see.

Oh, I have to mention this ad.
The new Axis Bank ad with Pregnant lady, shouting "kya bank bank, tumhari priority mai hun ya bank".
The lady's shouting irritates me. Even my wife gets irritated by her

Thank God I'm not the only one who hates that ad. I have only one word running through my mind when that ad comes on, starts with a 'B'.
