The Sprite advertisement featuring a Guy with a car, trying to impress the girl by offering her lift. What baffles me is that, why did the girl opt for the Bike when a car easily seat 5 people.

Exactly my thoughts ! As if, its either the granny of the girl who can travel in the car at a time! The guy who came up with this AD would have thought that he had created a witty, trendy AD, to capture youngsters!

Mod Note : Please use the EDIT or MULTI-QUOTE buttons instead of typing one post after another on the SAME THREAD!

The Cadburys Gems ad--laalach has no umar is fantastic especially theone wherein the guys pulls the blue gems in the art gallery.

Cheers
prasad

The old Alto ad wherein the wifey pulls hubby for a ride on a rainy day to cheer him up was simple but very well done.

Cheers
Prasad

I am seriously thinking of filing a PIL against these beauty products ads.
Sick and tired of every other ad talking about fairness, charcoal, milk, pearls, roots of hair and what not.

I am reminded of what my father said. The most useless thing needs most advertisements.

..
Before the cosmetics, we need a ban on the so called health drinks and other consumer products where they use children to make others feel guilty. Ones like the handwash adv or complan.

Then comes cosmetics like whitening creams, hair oils which are more interested to make you feel guilty or use rude themes (indulekha hair oil).

Oh, how could I miss the "A" certificate eligble advs!!

Not sure why they dont want to be creative, like the Vodafone ad with the PUG or the OREO or the earlier Alto ads

I couldnt agree more. And I dont get what is the obsession with winning everything in these ads.
