Estupido. Idiotta.
I really hate that ad. Completely brainless. If anyone falls for it then all I can say is ' Luck to them!'

However silly the Sprite ads might be, they make me smile; especially the new 2 : John, Johnny Janardan and Amar, Akbar, Anthony!

Yesterday while watching ABP news, an advertisement left me dumbstruck. It was the most pathetic advert I have ever seen in my lifetime. It was of a spices brand named R-PURE.
I am unable to find its video or else you all would have understood the trauma I faced.

One of my favourite insurance ads.

I know what you're trying to tell, true to its advert, the ending line of the jingle is... maar daala maar daala... R-Pure masala.

I will take the honors as its not only the worst ad on tv but also the most disgusting too, that too by far. Please pardon my description but that is how I can explain the REAL trauma that I faced.

Its about some toothpaste 'pentodox' or something like that. The ad begins with someone spitting on the screen with blood mixed in the saliva and cough, and then the comment from background 'kya apko brush karte samay khoon dikhta hai?'(do you see blood while brushing?)

Needless to say, its disgusting and in poor taste. How these ads pass the censor? Or they sit just to cut the skin show and pass shits like this?

I was just back from office and having some snacks when this ad came. I just couldnot eat after that and chances of dinner is also slim! The agony is so much that I picked my phone and posting this right now.

The worst thing is that the ad begins with the spitting, hence there is no chance to change the channel. IMO, this ad should be taken off immediately and the makers should be pulled well.
Anybody saw this one?

I've seen the ad, they really don't need to show the person spitting blood and all. I'm sure people understand what they're talking about when they're asked "kya aapko khoon dikhta hai?" :P

An ad i love is the tata sky hd+ ad with the policeman. I saw it in a theater and the entire audience burst into laughter. Hilarious one!

The new Innova's ad. It is good. But, my question is that.. Does the car really need an ad? It sells for itself! I'm seeing an ad for the innova after almost 7 years! The last ad for the Innova was with Aamir Khan during it's launch in 2006.

Maybe they want to project it as a Premium product, especially when the ToL version costs 18L OTR! Else there are other 7 seater diesel MPVs like the Ertiga or the Chevy Enjoy etc. that are in the market at as low as 8.5L OTR.

True that. But, i was also amazed to see the advert for the swift! Looks like the segment leaders needed that extra push to overcome the sales dip!

Hi everybody
Here is a great ad(Vodafone Zumi Zumi) which has been playing for the last few days.
Right from the 1970s ABBA, through Walk Like an Egyptian(Bangles),M.Jackson's moon walk etc it has captured the essence of the disco movement.
Enjoy
Regards
