add the i10 ads by SRK. Pathetic to say the least! especially the one in which he is racing a sports bike. What on earth were the creators of the ad thinking!

Why will a gal on a superbike want to drive the i10? No offence to the owners but it doesnt make sense!!

Oh come on! Don't you think that an i10 will be faster than a superbike when SRK is driving it!

I don't either!!

hey guys saw the new Yamaha gladiator Ad... pretty ok , any comments N_C and guys??

Din like the new Coco Cola Ad, with the family singing happy birthday to the parrot and feeding it with a red Chilly and having coke for themselves!!

one of the most irritating ads coming on tv Now a days and thats the REFRESHINGLY NEW HEADLINES : everything else is BLAH BLAH BLAH, where they are trying to make a mockery out of times now, NDTV and others, just cant stand that ad anymore. But its now playing on every other channel. Found it a lil funny initially but then gets on to nerves now..

Haven't seen the new Galdiator ad yet. I remember the old horrid ad - where a couple runs from goons and the Yamaha comes to life from a poster on the wall - yecccks

And the John Abraham one - where he jumps off the airport - sheesh.

Haven't been watching TV for the last few days - have to do catch up on my ad watching now.

its too boring and comes up on every break on all channels; the advt has sense but repeated watching gets on your nervous;

Looks like the Virgin Mobile advts are better.

Seen the New Honda Aviator advt.?

A guy in a civic (at a traffic stop) spots an aviator and starts day dreaming about riding it. Wonder who will dream of riding a scooter when they have a civic.

Riding one and dreaming of riding one is totally different.

on the other hand i love the new pulsar 220 ad. Stunts are well choreographed.

I second that.
Slightly off topic and not sure if anyone else has noticed this or not but any ad made for an indian company has foreign touch and ads made for foreign companies have indian touch in them. Why is that so?

The worst and most annoying ad by far today is the Metlife ad. That m#%@$@f$#%er needs to die!!

......And also that stupid woman from the new Marie ad.
