Oh that is really, really irritating and bugs me on many levels. Pairing? Whoever comes up with these lines?

OTOH, I think I can start an ad agency.

I am having a laugh riot ! watching the Star Sports ads for the World Cup 2015 matches. So fresh and creative! Really bold and well executed. It is something to look forward to after every match!

PS: Latest one -

Good or bad? You be the judge, but it is interesting:

Yeah man! These adverts are really sick. Now looking back the quality of 'idea' adverts is going lower and lower. There was a time i really liked their creativity!

If you notice, the singer sings Foolon ka taaron ka in place of Phoolon ka taaron ka and from that moment itself the Ad looks irritating.

I had high expectations from Ad makers before the World Cup esp Maruti, but it seems the Team India's form before the WC has scared all of them that if team loses, people will not appreciate creative Ads.
So now we hope to see some nice Ads in IPL.

These Mauka Mauka Ads are getting too boring. They are conceived by R.Balki.

Irritating as a word is nothing in comparison of the magnitude of irritation it inflicts on you. This is what I had said few days earlier:

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

Is this the one where some random girl tells Virat Kohli to reach in 5 minutes and for some reason Narain Karthikeyan's pit crew is listening in and tells him to do the same thing? If someone can explain what that ad means, I would be eternally grateful.

MRF is on thin ice as it is. In my childhood they used to run campaigns saying "The tyres we race are the tyres you buy". I remember indignantly telling my Dad, "They sell USED tyres?"

Just recalled that the Vodafone Zoozoo ads aired during the last World Cup. Such an amazing series of ads they were!



The mauka mauka series OTOH is going to get pretty nasty later on!

Actually I made a mistake, in the original post I was referring to the CEAT ad by Irfan Khan. He is not concentrating on driving and good tyres are supposed to help him.

If I am not mistaken, VK does not even stop for the girl at the end...don't know for sure!

Worse - They use such crappy tires for racing? (of course and exaggeration for humor!)

I feel very annoyed seeing this ad!



Does anybody feel the same?

The best ad I have seen recently is the nescafe one. Its about a stammering standup comedian. It talks about the situation any person with stammer goes through but in a comical and sensitive way!

Looks like the concept is taken from Invisible Gorilla experiment. Not just Fabia, result is going to be same if you try with any car.
