How about the sleepwell ads where the guy deprived of sleep cleans someone else's car in the morning instead of his'! Simple but brilliant! In fact I love the series.

I love all the Passat ads. They do a great job of showing the features of the car.

Hate the Hero Honda Hunk ad. That ad is junk on so many levels.

I find the Karbonn Jumbo ad very funny( unintentional ofcourse). My wife keeps laughing when I keep repeating the lines "Karbonn Jumbo ka jumbo screen, jumbo battery aur jumbo memory ke saamne...Sab Chote hi dikthe hai" everytime the ad is aired during the IPL .

^^ Agree, nice one there.

Some terrible ads these days on air.

- All the deo ads. I mean, what are they trying to sell?
- Pulsar one featuring japs. Sells 5 times the japs bikes or something. Aren't they themselves selling a jap(Ninja?).

and already posted by other members,
- Axis bank, priority one.
- HH Hunk, red hot tail lights, ya right!

Yet another ad from the "cadbury couple". Nice and sweet.




PS : The girl's name is apparently Pallavi Subhash. Am I the only who likes her?

The 'Get Ready' as by FIAT USA is simply mindblowing! No other words for it. Looks like FIAT is keen to start on the right foot in the US.

Wonder why the aggression is not visible in the Indian context

Guys,
Didn't anyone like the new Airtel Internet on 3G ad?
Kantilal Godbole from Kishanganj Found !!!
I like how the old man, says "hisaab Barabar", kisses the old lady and runs away and celebrates.
Funny and nice ad. I like it a lot for the joy and fun it portrays.

No you are not! cute, isnt she?! Never seen her on screen before; or may be she looks better due to her styling in this ad.

The ads which are too irritating for me:
- Harpic; they always show a close up of someone's loo exactly at eating time (lunch/ dinner). Maybe its their way of telling use we should not watch the idiot box while eating!
- Pepsi: all ads; but notably the most recent one where Dhoni etc are practising some shot
- McDonalds; not sure why, but the mcspicy ads just grate on my nerves

Unintentionally funny:
- MDH masaale; naanaji blessing us, anyone?

Another ad which gets on my nerves the Del Monte ad with its fake "Totally like..." crap.

Ohh yeah, part of her appeal is that she isnt "stylized" in this ad at all.

PS : I think we should stop admiring her here before the mods notice!
