The new Nokia smartphone ad is getting on my nerves especially that irritating voice over.

So basically smartphones are for people who cant make up their mind what colour shoe to wear!

In other words, the ad implies its for dumb people.

Back to topic, I agree that its way off the mark. After seeing the ad my mom asked me whether they are selling the shoe or the phone.

The Nissan Sunny ads are really irritating. The worst part is, the ads are aired both on TV and Radio. Have to mute it, every time the ad comes on.
It's such a "baaaad" ad.

The ad itself is strictly alright, targeted at a demographic it will probably resonate with thanks to tongue in cheek humor. Me, I watch it because I think the model used in it is pretty

Another really bad ad airing these days is the Pantene shampoo featuring Katrina Kaif. She can not speak/act even in the ad, how come she the leading actress in the bollywood??

One more beauty without much brains.

two extremes.
Bad:
The "liva" ad.
Its the music.It starts off so well, but by the time it starts to finish, the music has tapered off into some carnivalesque theme!!

Good:
Airtel "zaroori friend" one, where the guy gives a "missed call" to 100(police)!!
hilarious, and i actually knew guys in college who could be expected to do this!

Also the CLS ad is great. "Its called Blue Efficiency Da'ling". That in your face comment of the Girl is so great.

I really hate the Redbull Ads.

Nice ad.

Is that a TATA Safari being used by the guys in a TOYOTA ad?

Cheers!
