Vulgar advertisements raise stink in House : North News - India Today

The gross indecency makes me think that surrogate marketing (Kingfisher water, Imperial Blue CDs, etc) were not so bad! There are some really bad ads doing the rounds and the whip needs to be cracked before some even worse ones appear and we start thinking these deo ads were better.
Talking about deo, I remember during our college festival there was a show called Mad-Ads. One group was given the task to present the advert for a deo.

So, we are shown on the stage one guy sitting - as in Indian toilet and humming a tune. The other guy frantically pacing around the stage muttering something and knocking the door.

After a couple of knocks the sitting guy washes, gets up, takes a big angrai and comes out of the 'door'. Now this frantic guy (who has an urgency to download ) goes in and is hit by the stink. Coolly, he takes out a bottle of deo, sprays and goes inside smiling.

There was a catch phrase and a poster too, which I dont remember now.

I mean, all deo ads are more or less same, its time for a change - like how Imperial Blue (Men will be Men) and 5 star (ek bilaang chhoti) have done.

I find the new Havell's fan ad to be pathetic. I don't know if its an insult to the great Rajesh Khanna or an insult to his "fans" .

He seems to be suffering from delusions looking at those fans, when he says "merey fans mujhse koi nahi chheen sakta". Makes a great actor like him look like third grade .

Those new Vodafone ads, the less said the better.

I think the Flipkart.com ads are great - especially considering these are kids. The expressions are great.
Also like the Tata Docomo ones with Ranbir as the restaurant manager.

ariendj, those ads are taken from Telematches, a game show that used to be aired on tv in the 80's I had few tapes of those games.

Telematch - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I find these two ads irritating:

- Frooti: the entire premise seems a bit silly and the product is seen only in the last 5% of ad screentime. The catchline is also quite poor. The older jingle was much better.
- IP ads: why do those painted people scream at us or at each other when the match lne up is shown? I dont get it!

Docomo Ads featuring Ranbir Kapoor are great.
The recent vodafone ads aren't good

I feel in the Havell's ad, the advertising agency and the client intended to take mileage out of the Rajesh Khanna and Big B rivalry when the actor says "Mere fans mujhse koi nahin cheen sakta Babu Moshai". If that was the intention then I feel that they have insulted Rajesh Khanna. Even if he is does not have the limelight today but indeed he is a very good actor.

Anushka looks very irritating with her wide grin in anything she does whether its ads, movies, etc.
As regards Carlsberg (not Carlsburg) its called surrogate advertising. I though it is regulated but after IPL its back with a bang.

The irritating ones:

1.Adv of some snacks where the soldier is willing to die for the snacks
2.The one for Chips where the girl points to her stomach and says he is responsible, only later does she show the pack of crisps!!
3. Induleka Hair oil where each of the users state its their right to grow the hair and try and challenge the surroundings!!
4. Any ads where children are used to promote message for the larger crowd in a negative way. Eg. the handwash ad

None of them are in good taste.

I like the Oreo . sunrise and Bru ads
