I think you could not have been more right! I can imagine people even performing dandiya on it too!

I want to break the television set every time they play the IPL ad's with the disgusting music & a dancing Farah Khan.The music is really really irritating and I noticed the same music will be used pre and post the matches. 2 months of headache to be endured.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?NR=1&v=...E&feature=fvwp

Also, there is a brilliant clip out there called 'Dumb Charades' It has a message and I would not like to tell you what it exactly is until you see it for yourselves. It touches your soul.



P.S : No idea if this has been posted before.

^^+1 to the above. Everything about it is pathetic and irritating. You are right! Headaches to be endured or the remote switches would lose its life (as every time it appears I shuttle to some other channel for 30 seconds and come back) and I might have to get another remote from the Dish provide.

I second this. This ad is now a pain, It's like they have no other advertisements to show and want to brain drain us with those horrible jumping jampak ads

I was just thinking of posting about the IPL add.

They had all the resources in the world and came up with this pain of an add !! Why??

I really hope they amend this and come up with something new and less painful.

Can any legal action be taken against Farah Khan for sustained mental torture and offending the senses of the Indian Junta?

You should see how many negative tweets there are all over Twitter. I might just avoid watching irrelevant matches just to avoid this ad.

I don't watch TV too often and definitely not the IPL ever. (This comes from a guy who used to watch even the test matches ball by ball. Too much useless cricket huh?) But I have come across this disgusting ad 3-4 times. Not to mention, it was among the worst things I have seen in my life.

Can we not put up a complain to the broadcasting committee or whatever the thing is that shows up in the bottom of the screen often which reads something like 'If you have any complains about the content shown on this channel...bla bla...' Should be worth a try!

Little OT : I saw the 1st match of IPL on Sony-six HD.

It had no advts. Is that by design or something went wrong yesterday.

For the 1st time I had uninterrupted view of a cricket match.

I just wished they took off some commentators too

Has anyone seen the TVS Apache ad. This was some time back.

The ad starts with a guy unable to stand on the ground when a police catches him. The ad then goes to a flashback where this guy on a apache chases and catches a BMW for some issue.

How on earth can a guy on a apache match the speed of a BMW.

I dont know if this has been already posted. Pardon me if there is something wrong with the ad sequence.

Had seen the ad thought I do not remember the BMW in it!
But if all goes fine, when BMW and TVS enter a JV in India, top brass at BMW will be in a fix! They will definitely want to burn the tape

I simply hate the Cadbury's dairy milk silk ads with those licking, drooling models, it feels so very yucky. On top of that, now my tinytot kiddie thinks that this is the way how chocolates are to be eaten and everytime a choc is handed to her, makes a mess like those in the ads. My god...

I am a big fan of Cadbury’s dairy milk ads. Started from those old ones – Kuch khaas hai hum sabhi mein…, and to the recent one below

The "Kuch khaas hain" ones were good. But, am talking about the present Dairy Milk silk ones. I find them simply horrible.
