Couldnt agree with you more. Its yuck .

Nothing beats 'Kuch Khaas hai zindagi mai" series. Was watching it recently after hearing that Sofiya Haque, the girl in the ad had passes away.

Has anybody seen the recent Havell's Ad? In one, the maid/ cook, when she is just going out after placing all dishes is asked to sit down along with the family and asked to have supper /dinner.
In another one, at Registrar Office, before the marriage, the guy will say, his would be wife name will remain the same even after marriage and HE will take his wife's surname ! Such original and thoughtful Ads! Really happy to see them!

I like the new Fluence commercial. Good jingle as well.

The expressions of the actor, specially at the petrol bunk is excellent.

Edit: Watch in HD.


PS: Is it shown as KL 5 all over India? I though they were switching the registration for each state.

Hey Guys,

What are your views on the new ad series featuring Aamir Khan for Godrej?

I know it is going to generate extremely polarized opinions.

I personally liked the ad and the concept of products features being woven into the story line.

I'm still not sure I entirely like it but it got my attention. It appears to be the first of a series, so lets see how it pans out.

Am I the only one who finds the Lay's Chile Lemon ads extremely stupid and idiotic? How can you manage to drop a fan in a college library? Also, eating potato chips can give you 'panga' ideas. Really?

+1. You are not alone bro!
This ranks high in one of the stupid ads on the idiot box right now.
The 1st rank, though takes the IPL ads without any doubt.

yes, I hope the next thoughtful ad is about traffic, though I am not sure how they will advertise a fan through that!
For some reason I find the guy in that marriage ad a bit irritating. He is just one of those that I feel like punching in the face for no reason at all I guess he is there in some other ad too

yes, the kids saved it. I have no idea why that ad needed Shahrukh Khan. It would have been more effective with an ordinary (normal, ) guy.

Yes its really idiotic. What makes it worse is that the actors laughter sounds so forced and he looks as if he has woken from a hangover to shoot for this ad.

I can't be overtly critical about a Fiat ad Might not be a great ad but certainly a good start.

That olx ad, where the couple sells their long car because its shorter than their neighbour's, it is real cheap and irritating.
