The new m4 advert, the golden car on the aircraft carrier.
Love it.

Ps: isn't the car traveling the wrong side over the kerb at one point?

I love the new pepperfry ad. The girl is so expressive! Best is "where will I sit?".

Watching the India-Pak match on Sunday and I literally was irritated by two ads in particular:

1. Airtel Ad: Phoolon ka taaron ka, sabka kehna hai - The guy singing it must been troubled with constipation for months now. I simply cannot withstand that irritating voice. In fact, most of the Airtel ads are irritating.

2. Lays Ad: Featuring Ranveer Kapoor, pointless ad. Do the ad makers think us to be so stupid to enjoy these type of ads?

I see a Snickers chocolate ad nowadays. A girl (later modded to show as a guy) refuses to push start a car. I cannot understand the meaning of that ad. Can anyone explain?

When hungry the boy behaves like a drama queen.
This advert is inspired from similar themes in other markets:

Two recent TV ADs, irritating me to the core are,

1. Honda Maestro - Din me sharing;raathe me pairing. Seriously?!



2. Dettol - New campaign where Dettol gets it's own song which goes on like, "Dettol uh dettol uh.."

The Star Sports World Cup Ad is the King of Online Memes now. Has really hit it off with Cricket fans.

Another irritating one : MRF Tyres..

Specially when the girl says, "Virat, I want you here in 5 minutes". I am like, please come to Bangalore.

Some good ones now:

India Pak Ad " Kab phodenge yaar" was good, so was the new Fevikwick ad "Todo nahi Jodo". Liked the New Amaron ad as well.

Default Superb ad for SMART



One hell of an ad for SMART - not that I like the car but love the ad.

Could actually be true for our very own Reva.

IIN ads. Please stop projecting a data connection as god of all stuff in the world. For heaven's sake, it is just an internet connection!

I found it ok the first time I saw it, but after seeing it 5-10 times on various channels I now go everytime I see it. The lady's whiny tone is just so irritating to me. No offense but to each his own

Anyone seen the Nissan Terrano ads? It just shows the Terrano "talking" simple one liners like "Who's your daddy"

Personally I didn't like the advt. due to it condescending tone and arrogance as if its ruling the sales chart or ruling *something*

Well the internet does open up lots of information and educational opportunities. That said this series of advts is pure bunk. The least they could have done to back the premise of the advt. was to have a mashup of different educational material made available free of cost. They could have even claimed it as CSR brownie points. Instead they just ended up with a huge backlash on social media and rightly so.

Yes ! This one is very irritating. Also, it promotes unsafe driving - as Virat rushes on the road at illegal speeds.

But, where in today's cramped cities does one get so much free tarmac to do all this stunting, is totally another level of stupidity
