The recent IDEA AD of a man doing window shopping for watches: Flabbergasted by high price, the shopwallah sets right a placard which says 50% discount and mouths a "happy diwali" wish through the glass window to the man, obviously a non-hindu. The man rushes inside and after buying, hugs the shopwallah. Truly nice Ad to see & enjoy!

There are two more:
- a guy who takes a 'holiday' on a bank holiday and then hugs his wife in public wishing Eid mubarak.
- an elderly Sardarji in Santa costume getting a cheque for his efforts and then calling up his wife to tell her she can buy the fridge she wanted to.

Love this StateFarm insurance commercial.
Apart from the funny bit, it plays on how people people believe anything on the "internet"

Seems like the govt also think there are some bad ads on TV.

Source

Quote:
They are snazzy, slick and smooth but do these ads feed us made up research and even glib outright lies every day?

Such concerns have prompted the food regulator, the Food Safety Standards Authority of India, to send notices to 38 companies for misleading advertisements.

Heinz's popular product Complan faces prosecution for claiming the product helps children grow twice as tall as they would if they had any other another drink. Boost and Horlicks from the GSK stable claim their products provide more stamina and make children smarter. Kellogg's claims on the slimming qualities of their product have also been questioned.

I saw this ad yesterday about some girl talking about her biker boyfriend being laidback, etc. Pathetic to say the least, especially when that guy says 'talking' is a waste of breath. Was that a Hero bike? are people really impressed by such idiotic things?

Also the new Gems ads may have a different concept, but they seem to have been executed horribly. To add to it, the music just doesnt flow from one clip to another.

Like the music on the Windows 8 ad in Hindi, like the ad too


Not until did I do a search on youtube for the ad did I know the song was originally written and used in a 2009 movie Aagey Se Right composed by Amartya, Ram Sampat. Probably 'inspired' by an English song, but then I am not into English music.
