I mean come on.. first its the Indica Xeta ad.. which has been discussed to DEATH in another thread here so I'm not going to comment on that.. and now we have the coke ad, with Ash making sounds that are more becoming of a sadak chaap romeo(bombay saying ppl... figure it out).
Are our ad film maker's loosing their originality.. or do they just think that we as the viewing public are going to buy no matter how they want to sell it to us?
My submission is that, the inspiration for the ad, is real-life Bombay!

There are many Bombay girls (actually even urban Kolkata girls) with attitude in real life, who mock boys, loudly and follow through maybe even more scornfully than the character played by Aishwarya Rai.

On the other hand, some travel and observation has shown me, that the common girl in Delhi, Lucknow, Faizabad, even Nagpur, lives a very suppressed existence in comparision.

Such upcountry girls, may find the ad hard to believe, profane and outlandish.

Ram, I think lets leave the attitude of the women (which IMO is being kind of sexist on your part)in various metro's outa this thread.. I started this coz an ad peeved me off.... I dont think discussing the morals of the women in various metro's and the 'upcountry' girls as you put it...
Lets stick to the ad's that p*ss you off here please

yes the ad is pretty bad, same goes for the other aishwarya ad in which she plays frisbee with a bunch of guys on the beach then there is some animated stuff (sorry i didnt even watch the whole thing to see what ad it was).

I think all these crappy coke/pepsi ads are handiwork of a person called Suhel Seth. I just hate his work!

Well agreed that the Coke & the frisbee toting ASh ads are just stupid. I also thought the Thumbs Up & the Khaitan fan to be absolutely absurd.

I think we should have more ads like the Fevicol one which is currently airing with the small kid but the best is the Halls one in which the girl comes flying!

Well I hate the new coke ad too but for all u guys wanna see the inovative side of advertising have a dekho to this image.



Many of u might have recived this in FWD: mails if no i'll give a briefe story behind this

Coca Cola takes the 2nd floor of this building for their Sales & Marketing office and puts up a hoarding.

A couple days later Pepsi puts up the other board just for fun.
