So obvious what they intend to mean by LKPD
Pardon my ignorance, but whats LKPD? I asked the same questions to a few colleagues and got blank looks? I guess the person says LKP or something? Perhaps, one can PM me if the meaning is something not for below 18 (as the deo name goes).

Hey, I posted this ad yesterday in the previous page .
The ad is brilliant on so many levels.
"I cannot buy a Samsung. I'm creative"
"Dude, you're a Barista"

Oops I got condored in my first ad itself.
Sorry Newpunter

And yes the Ad is creative in many ways.

But i feel they could have made the last sentence more cheeky type i mean when the boy gets into the cab. He gives a lousy line "its a great phone".

Yeah, the ending could have been better, but I have had so much fun forwarding this video to my Apple fanboy friends and reading their replies .

Another favourite line from the ad :
"Why are they leaving now, when there is only 9 hours to go"

^^ he he funny ad. But whatever, after my Samsung Galaxy S(I've a different name for it though), I'm never gonna touch any more Samsung phones in my life, ever again. It's a pathetic phone and lags/hangs all the time and it hangs even during a call. I feel that they release these phones without doing any quality checks.

One more line. "Uh oh blogs are saying the battery looks sketchy. "

I feel happy with my N8 even though lacks apps and all the hype and hoopla of apple and android, at the end of the day it is one very reliable phone.

Has anyone seen the Force One ad? It is wrong at so many levels!! Shows road rage, kids in the front seat and last but not the least, the SUV itself skids across zebra crossing in the end.

What makes it worse is that Mr. Bachan is endorsing it. Have seen this ad just once; are they not airing this anymore?

Its bound to man, they are advertising lack of ABS as a feature.
Kids in front seat dont matter too , since there are no airbags to injure them in case of a crash. All features you see!

Here is the ad :

@sajo- absolute ROFL....
but i don't a care a hoot about the road rage stuff. C'mon, don't be all western nanny world. There are a whole lot of other things that are shown in TV that ought to be banned,rash driving in car ad are the least of the problems.
BTW, not supporting the ad at all, it's shot badly and in bad taste.Wonder how could BigB act in this. Couldn't they bring something else instead of this?
Nothing said about the car,it's features or abilities.It's a new offering in a new segment.Didn't it deserve more?
Only saving grace is that got to see a conti(though badly modded) in a car ad.

TVS Wego and Goindigo ad can be given the tag of "annoying ads" i either put the tv on mute or change the channel!

I would agree with this. Actually, the earlier Indigo (On time, everytime) ad was quite good. This one is totally annoying.

Did anyone see Google's mobile search ads on TV? There's one on vintage cars. Dude performs a search on his cell for vintage car demand in India.

If you look close enough, you can see Team-BHP.com as the 3rd result on his phone
