Enjoy

OMG.. This is ultra cute :-)
As such the Zoozoo ads were amazing and this one is the icing on the cake. Even being a 30yr old guy, I still feel like a kid when I watch these zoozoos :-)

Hi.
I am 69 years and I still love it so much so that I don't switch the channel when this is playing.
Very well catches the essence of the 1970s disco movement started by Donna Summer with Love to love you baby in mid 1970s.
Incidentally she expired in may 2012.
Regards

The new Dairy Milk Silk ad, with the girl in her car stuck in a traffic jam is having the silk and so is the guy parked next to her. Though, not the ad itself, but the expression of the girl is good throughout the ad.

She has an uncanny resemblance to actress Ali Landry, IMO.

Whoever thought of that idea should be fired!

I guess they are running out of ideas to sell the i20.
Car makers seem to be getting more desperate to sell now that the diesel red mist is coming to an end + more competitors in all segments + general belt tightening by consumers.
I've seen an ad for Innova after ages and for the Swift too.

I am not sure if this has been posted before. This is one of the most hilarious ads I have seen. Kudos to the maker for such thinking.

We definitely need more like these.

Did anyone see the new ad of Mahindra Centuro, where girls run away with the shirt of a man.

They zoom off in a convertible and our man catches them up with this Centuro and refuses to take the shirt back.

What is Mahindra even thinking. After the Awesome Live young Live free, all we get is this

Completely idiotic ad I saw today which involved a stupid kid teasing a lovely golden retriever who was apparently leashed to a park bench.
At length the idiot, cretinous, ugly little rat sized kid realizes that the dog was not leashed after all and the dog, who is supposedly quite irritated by then, gives chase.
The stupid kid then eats some Glucovita and apparently outruns the poor dog.

What complete idiocy this is! Whoever the creative guy is, should be taken out and shot.

First it creates a very poor example to the typical urban idiot halfwit audience who already have no respect for animals or who have half formed fears about dogs. This ad fuels these baseless fears.
Next it portrays the poor golden retriever, probably amongst the kindest dogs in the world, as a potential aggressor.
Third it tells those blighted kids that if they eat rubbish glucovita they are pretty much invincible.

All completely incorrect, poor quality, erroneous messages.

I particularly hate this ad because of the incorrect portrayal of a lovely animal. Hence the acerbity in the post.

Has anyone seen the latest Horlicks ad?

It says milk loses upto 25% of it's nutritional value when boiled. And if you add Horlicks to it, then it restores those lost nutrients plus adds some more.

I have never seen a higher quality of drivel than this.

Hope someone sues the pants off these liars.

You can complain at http://www.ascionline.org/

I've done that earlier for some mobile phone ad, which showed some guy taking a picture on the sly of a dancing girl (showing that as a feature) The ad was not shown after that - may be many protests like mine lead to the removal of the ad!!
