I also love the Diwali ad of Idea. Its such a meaningful ad, Idea has seriously come up with brilliant ideas including that ad where Sardarji plays a Santa Claus.

Thumbs up for them.

I would rate it among one of the worst ads I've ever seen! Came across the ad while watching a Christmas special movie on television, and everyone in the family hated this advert!

The recent Ad for Midea air conditioners. With a piyush chawla(cricketer) look alike. I am unable to make head or tail of it. What did they mean by making such an Ad? What they wanted to convey?

Its a rip off or part of a grander brand design , the American version that is being aired here currently features Joe Pesci.

Stole my words. I think Rekha should act her age. The constant overdone makeup and admirers falling head over heels over the "timeless beauty" gets on my nerves. She has become old and should accept it.

I didn't notice the guy in the ad. But the lady looks nice. I watch the ad for that purpose.

I was in Germany for a few months in 2010. The FIFA world cup was going on at that time. This Mercedes Benz ad was doing the rounds quite a lot at that time. I found it very classy. Please check out at this link.

That was an awesome ad and taught people some traffic sense too.
There was one more Kawasaki Bajaj Caliber ad at that time. It went like this " ae chale wale raah pe rukna na haar ke...". Very nice song and a classy ad. Don't get any of those these days.

The Hero Glamour bike ad has a nice catchy music, Nain mataka lage re mann back seat pe

Tune aisa self start mara sota dil mere jaga matakoo
Nain mataka laga re man back seat pe bhaga re
Mara jo tune accelerator dil galiyon main aaya maataakoo
Nain mataka laga re man back seat pe bhaga re
Tune mar ke light ka signal dil mera dhadkaya matako, matako, matakoo
Nain mataka laga re man back seat pe bhaga re

Found the lines on the net, very nice lines indeed.
