On the contrary, I hate this ad. I find it a bit irritating. First really sad ad by Max Touch/Orange/Hutch/Vodafone. Naam anek, kaam ek.

I find the ad in question quite good, and so did my wife.

A Vodafone ad which i felt didnt serve the purpose was the Musical Greetings ad with the gals singing off-tune to a guy standing below his balcony. I found it quite dumb, actually.

The pulsar maina Ad just ROCKS! whereas, the new virgin mobile ad, about a girl wanting to go to goa, is PATHETIC to say the least!

The other Virgin mobile ad - the guy is caught by a traffic cop and calls up his dad - is quite funny too.

I hate this new Ford Fiesta ad (where the fiesta wrapped in match stick burners and it lits up those flames and the guy tries to sing or something, yuck). Total lack of creativity and a very half hearted approach to make an ad. I just hated it.

One of the best ads i have seen.

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

Yes, he even shakes his head when the song goes 'mujhpe jadoo kar daalaa...' and its almost like he is paying heed to his Dad's words. Amazing piece of work by the young lad in the ad.

I remember the Pepsi ad during one of the World Cups (can't remember which!) Jingle sung by Raghuveer Yadav, 'umar ghumad ke cheera barse, dil ye bole jhoomke taare choole' ... something like that ... one of the best ad jingles IMO.

X 2 - it's a perfect example of a dumb ad.

Fast ? I thought the ad highlighted the handling part.

@ Sohail - "Yeda Hai" the guy says.
