+1

Me too, hate those advertisements to the core.

I always get a feel that this girl forcibly intrudes into an ongoing conversation between a group of people with her claims on connectivity, network speeds, et al. It appears very unnatural and far from something like joining into a conversation. Somehow, I am not even impressed by the tomboy appearance as well.

Another advertisement I dislike seriously is of the lifebuoy featuring Kajol-Devgan pair, it seems neither informative or funny or punchy or captivative but just too much synthetic.

Fully OT, you are right. I had pleasant experience with their broadband in Chennai. Airtel Technician is at the door within couple of hours to resolve the issue.

The Flipkart guy is also kinda annoying, but not as much as the Airtel girl! Can't fathom why anyone would pay so much money for her!

The current Vodafone ads - Super Son, Super Brother etc - are definitely better than the Airtel krap!

Anothey irritating one on TV these days. Its a symphony ad where every single person in the house is dying coughing their lungs out. This ad is not only irritating with all kinds of coughing sounds you ever come across collectively in your entire life, but also feels extremely sordid if you are having your dinner at the same time!!

Agreed 100% especially the fact that Airtel network is just terrible. I don't get network at home, at office and half the time people say my number is not reachable and this lady claims to get 4G in the mountains somewhere.

Compared to that Vodafone ads are a class apart. This new father-son ad, the zoozoo ads and even the pug ads were brilliant.

Makes you wonder if anyone who was part of this advertisement from the creators to the actors have ever had Masala Chai.



Or maybe they all suffer from Anosmia.

Watching Olympics on HD is awesome but I am really annoyed to the limit by the Bajaj Home Appliances Ad where we are constantly reminded about the lady quitting her career 9 years ago for family.
How much desperate can one get just to sell 1000-3000 Rupee products.

The husband deserves nothing short of Oscar for delivering the lines declaring about the wife's career with utmost sincerity.
