(Sad also because this from the same guys who brought out the one featuring synchronised slides and driving on the runway ad, remember?)

Usurped, utterly, by the new Camry ad.
Whos the voiceover guy, Arindham choudhary?
Seriously!

They've apparently reworked the voice over. He's throwing the same spiel but now the guy is SCREAMING!!
Do we have an ad consultant in the house to help these guys?

The new wagon-r ad featuring Madhavan and the roadies guys is damn irritating! Why can't Maruti make better ads? They should learn from Honda on how to make ads! You people remember the Accord station wagon ad? The world's most expensive ad! ( and the best i suppose! )

I have a small collection of automotive advertisements which tickled my fancy in my HDD which I collected during my B school days. I haven't added to that collection for more than 5 years now.

And one of finest among them is this commercial for DSG from Volkswagen. It takes a bit of explanation for the uninitiated ones. But is very amusing to the fellas who understand what DSG is.

Sorry if its already posted in this thread.

Most irritating ads on TV now-
Micromax's counter-samsung ad with 'aunty' tagline.
Max nY insurance ads with the horrible B&W devil.

Tolerable Ads:
Tata Docomos quirky ads with the 'no interruptions'
Flipkart kiddie ads

Awesome Ads:
The Madhya pradesh tourism ads

Most irritating event on TV (Star world)- The 'what would you do' jingle for Grey's Anatomy which keeps playing every 11 minutes.

Simple solution --> Get a HD, no ads / not many ads.
& BTW Grey's Anatomy is one of the best short series ever made.
