Certain ads are silly, a good concept should try and sell their product in an apt way but not make certain "unassuming" illogical inferences. A few examples:

1) The new Hunk ad, it assumes that all SUV owners are sissy and are afraid to get into caves while the person on Hunk can do anything. It is silly of ad designer to assume that. Plain idiocy!

2) Clinic plus ad where a child calls up her granny asking her to come home to help her grow her hair and when her mom buys Clinic plus, granny's necessity has been obviated!! What a gross disrespect to the grand parents!

3) All Sprite ads! The lesser we discuss the better!


I guess all above such ads are plain stupid and do not worth the advertiser's money!

I like the new ad in "The Complete Man" series by Raymond Suitings, where the guy makes travel arrangements to take his mother along with him, after he accepts a job offer in Singapore.

Cheers,
Vikram

I would like to add the advertisment of J K Laxmi Cement.

In that you wont see any under construction building or building material, but only a model in the Red swimsuit coming out of the fake sea.I really cant figure out is it a swimsuit ad or cosmetic ad or a lip-stic ad. It says "naam hai , vishwaas hai, J K Laxmi Cement "

Regards,
Lalit Tyagi

I was so much expecting to see this ad video here. Love the ad and no, you are not the only one.

BTW, this new limca ad's tune, that's pretty nice. Anyone know if it's from some song ?

I also like the jingle of the Limca commercial and the overall presentation, except the last scene where the guy is shown jaywalking on the road and the car getting disintegrated on hitting the jaywalker.

I would have loved to see the jaywalker getting disinterated on getting hit by the car.

That is actually directed to his son.

Mindless, but extremely hilarious. Love that add.

Does anyone find those Pepsi ads good? I hate them.

Gary Lawyer at his best. Folks born in late 70's and early 80's will remember this one. Each one of us identified ourselves with that jingle.

First you say you're always with me,
Coz’ being with me is fun.
Say you'll go the whole distance,
Since the love that you found,
All right, Come on, what's going on?
What you're thinkin'?

Hmm... hmm.. hmm.. hmmmm....

Then you say you need me,
Like the garden needs rain.
Then you go and deceive me,
Like it's all... in the game...

All in the game
