The new reliance data card ad, with that chick driving a burnt car is so out of place.

ALso the new airtel ad is very catchy, but i guess the tune is copied from somewhere, its just that i can't remember it.

The T^T^ Sky Aamir Khan, Cyrus Sahukar ad and the service itself are so ludicrous. Know or keep track of what your friends are watching on TV!

Hmpf!!

What for?!

As it is, don't your friends blurt out more info. than required about everything on Facebook?

I am now sick of the deo ads on TV. And I feel its a degradation of women. They are portrayed as ***-starved creatures (yes creatures not humans) with that deo as trigger. Girl child now a days lives in a difficult world.

Could someone explain what's funny about the latest Asian Paints ad where elder bro doesn't like younger bro advising him on painting and stuff? Am quite puzzled by the way it ends.

I hate the new Tata Aria ad. Not sure why Tata uses foreigner faces in the ads.
The ad completes so fast that I am not sure any marketing or sales leads can be generated. I dont think anybody would see that ad and buy the aria.

Worst ad in circulation these days : Idea 3G . As if people have nothing better to do during power cuts. I mean when first thing you do is find a candle. I feel it is cheaper than those deo ads ..

I think this ad is a continuation of the older ad where the younger brother used to visit the Asian paints site and chat with some girl to find out about the painting and stuff and the elder brother used to think that he is cheating on his wife or something. Now, the elder brother is also aware of the Asian paints features and is now as up to date as the younger brother. Atleast, that is what i think it means .

6-7 years back I asked my colleague (from UP) why population is so high in UP. He gave some funny answer similar to AB in idea ad!!

The new Tata Aria is supposed to have ABS amongst other safety features, but in the "Chase" ad airing nowadays, the wheels are shown locking up when the "secret agent" brakes and turns right into the warehouse someone at tata should have checked it before it went on air.

Guys, you should read up the reason for population explosion. No power, means almost no mode of recreation. And when people have nothig to do.. it leads to population explosion.

While the reason shown is ad for population explosion is true, I am not entirely convinced about the solution to it

Can't believe he really meant that. You need to control population, give sex education. Not saas-bahu drama to further encourage EK to dole out crap.

Sachin, search for "baby boom in Nepal due to load shedding" and you will get the google link.
I know there are various other means to control population explosion but if people are occupied in various other activities like internet, tv, etc then they have less time to copulate. What say?
Imagine, in a village, if you don't have electricity at night what option people have for recreation.
