did you guys see that laptop/mobile - dont remember, ad where in the guy is sitting on the beach sees a girl in bikini and shorts playing beach volley then he snaps her, morphs her like naked and shares with everyone in his college. then someone snaps him the same way and shares,

this should be banned. morphing some girl to naked and having fun and making an advertisement with that- sheer blunder

At a recent company event, we had this local band performing live. After every couple of songs, the lead singer would ask, "How many of you want to listen to Kolaveri?" Obviously the entire crowd would go wild, only to hear the lead singer scream back, "GO TO YOUTUBE AND WATCH IT THERE"

True to their word, they DID NOT perform that song!

Another one of my faves, though a blast from the past. I love the way he does a double take near the end of the clip!

That was an awesome response. I'm curious to know what the crowd replied to them after that 'dialogue'.

More than the ad, I like the 'chick' (model). What's her name BTW?


I like the snapdeal ads with the Yamaraj, this one in particular where the Yamraj is supposed to take away the dying old man. Yamraj says next year and the old man gets up from his bed. Ha Ha

Off Topic but I noticed Anand Mahindra started following Team-BHP on twitter 2-3 days back!
