The Nissan Sunny. Sounds more like a Faaaaart than a Caaaaaaaar when the guy in the lift says it.
And also add the one when the wife asks the husband for the caaaaar keys. It's so irritating that even the guy who acted as husband looks irritated .

Very sad ad. Thought it was an Arab channel ad dubbed first, cause you get a lot of fantasy meaningless stuff there on the lines of Alladin & the mystic of the magical lamp. Guess they were "inspired" from there.

Well at least she looks nice. The guy in the lift appears so constipated.

Another one i really can't stand is the ever ready advertisement. Akshay Kumar walking around like Antonio Banderas (even the hair style is so lame) in Desperado but waving a toy gun and toy cars is so

^^ I have never liked Akshay Kumar to be honest.

All his ads and most of his movies are lame.

One more ad that is driving me nuts is this Anushka Sharma and Ranvijay ad of Reliance(or is it Tata?). Anushka sounds so irritating that I feel like throwing the remote at her.

Oh and that Bisleri ad, I've probably never seen any more mindless ad ever. That one takes the cake.

The series of Tata Sky ads is great! The one featuring the Russian Army personnel riding a tank, the two guys outside Tom Cruise's house talking to the dogs and the Dark Knight inspired bank robbery one. Simply awesome!

Dish TV seems to have taken cue from Tata Sky and created their 'response' to Tata Sky's smart concept: it's got everything, you need not ask.

A similar thing happened between the iPhone 4 and the Karbonn Android A1 commercial. The latter ends with "So if you don't have *cough* *cough*, don't sweat. You get all that at a fraction of the price."

Flipkart series of ads is also really smart and fun to watch. Driving home the USPs of Flipkart in a "kidding" way.

As someone else mentioned earlier, the new Reliance ads featuring Anushka are terrible. She just goes yap, yap, yap!

Cheers!

I absolutely hate the McVities ad with that ridiculous song and Bipasha nodding her head in that ridiculous "Yaadon ki baarat" kids style.

I love the Airtel Ads. 'Har friend jarori hota hai!' (excuse my spelling ;-)) Specially the add of the 'kanjoos friend' where this guy gives missed call to the police! and the F1 friend ad.

Default Tata Manza- Tanuka Saan is back!

We all know some of the best ads come from TATA. From the sierra to safari to Indigo to the Aria. Well here is the lastest one where Tanuka Saan and his colleague figuring out why their product is not as good as Tata Manza. This time Tanuka Saan is an undercover sardarji who is on a mission to find out why prospective customers are buying the Manza. Unfortunately, the colleague gets beaten up by Tanuka Saan



In case you havent seen the first one:

Tanuka-san Rockzzz, maan, this is one ROFL advert.
Just loved the way they put one the disguise and how he bowed to the Indian guy in the Japanese way unintentionally.
And the scene where the P.A's disguise goes off is LMAO!!!!

Nice ad - has a fresh touch to it. Though I liked the space in the car, I didn't like the under thigh support! My uncle has a 6 month old car and the display had some issues too. So I guess the car is still NOT there yet!

PS:: Its not Saan, but San, in case what you typed was not a deliberate mistake for fun sake. [like Caaaar]
