I am guessing here - but it could be the "think different" thing. Maybe they will offer some products / services that could be different ??

The Motorola ad where the father is shouting at his son for messing the room and having a stupid haircut. The son just starts playing the Ishq Tera Garam Masala - Garam Masala Movie song and his father's actions match the songs beat. The expressions on the son' face is priceless. One of the best ads i have seen.

Everytime my dad watches the ad he looks at me and gives a wry smile.

They have a new scheme where our balance gets credited by 10p for every minute of incoming calls. Saw the ad in the TOI this morning.

There is an ad by Zeiss glasses. It shows a sultry, young, beautiful girl looking at a young man who happens to be wearing glasses.

She does not like his glasses and she says, "Hey, what's on your eyes man." in a particularly rude and crass manner and she leaves in a huff. He is not wearing Zeiss glasses. She thinks he is less than dirt, inhuman, because of it. We are to believe it is quite all right for people, women, to value men all because of the glasses they wear. This ad made me remember the Zeiss brand, for sure. I will never buy another Zeiss product.

N_C : No not the Bajaj XCD Ad, but the Bajaj ad where there are a lot of Different Sized Pulsars Doing Goood stunts!!
By the way i like that Ad too "rote hue jaate hai sab"

Default Thumbs Down for Thums-Up

Guys, isn't any body else going after the characters (on-screen & off-screen) associated with the new Thums-Up ad featuring Akshay Kumar ?! Destroying a beauty for a bottle of stupid gas-filled water !

Agree with you on this one DD, it is a rather sad ad with an even poorer meaning to it.

The Virgin mobile ad is tryng to potray that the present generation is too smart for the elders. Its in bad taste and trys to show that outwitting your parents is an in thing to do.

well then the ad in which the boy listens to the garam masala song on radio while his father shouts at him is in bad taste too !

Besides every teenager tries to outwit his parents some time or the other. I have also done it. It is harmless and fun. This is my opinion.

I believe that the car is a mustang

The other ad with moto yuva with the garam masala song is simply hilarious....

I dont know if u notice that the fathers hand move in rythm to the lyrics :" tune jadu karrr, tune jadu karrr. tune jadu kar dalaaaaaaaa"

lolzzzzz.

no offenses to anyone. IMHO the ad is in plain harmless humour

No offence Spitfire but its better you dad smiles rather than calling you "Beta Billoo" like in the other ad for the Motorola yuva.
