This one is the worst ad I have ever seen, there is no sense in it and also showing on-border violence just for the snack!! so pathetic

Now this is just awesome!

The Times of India made the following ad:

Note: The guy sleeping all the time is carrying a copy of The Hindu.

The Hindu responded with the following ad:

Note: The beeped out words are 'The Times of India'!

Man, I love these ad wars!

The second ad by Hindu in retaliation to ToI is good too.

Loved the sequel of the Hero Campaign which has a collage of the videos uploaded by users. I simply love that song so does not really matter what is shown on the video actually.

The Hindu ads are really Awesome!! and and and sadly, very true. I subscribe to the Times of India and I am fed up with seeing the ridiculous amount of ads, paid news and entertainment news content!

This was VW's Superbowl commercial last year. I'm sure many of you would have seen this:



This year they followed it up by a new campaign called "The bark side". And this is the teaser of the same which they released a few weeks before the Superbowl:



And this is the final ad. Total ROFL material:

Haha creative420, the dog weight loss ad is crazy!

My least favourite ad of this season would be the Fiat Linea underwater themed commercial. It plain dull, senseless and boring. Not at all appealing. Thumbs down!

Listen from 35sec onwards where a rather plump girl says "eat Lion oats and control your weight''

Sorry, I beg to differ.

The advert perfectly shows Fiats condition in the Indian marketplace.

As they say in Hindi, "Paani sar ke upar chala gaya hai".
In English, It means that the water has gone over the head and there is no hope left anymore.

Yep. This, by far, has been the worst Mahindra ad ever. Spending a fortune behind it and yet doing nothing. I'd rather give my money to some firang director and ask him to get me as many beauty shots possible (in snow, desert or water)
