I was surprised why no one brought this up before!! The Metlife ad is a HIGHLY IRRITATING ad, to say the least. I change channels as soon as it comes on. Nonsense.

Yeah, liked it initially but now it's too irritating..

HP engine oil ad , I found it funny the way the Truck Driver tries to speed up the truck behaving as if driving a bullock cart.

What do you think about the !dea ads.

I believe they have got quite a good number of creative heads churning out marvelous ads to say the least.
Just love the ads.

Soothing and intelligent.

Couldn't agree more. They are trying too hard on the same tagline.

I initially liked both these ads. What however has begun to irk me is the alarming frequency with which the ads are repeated, thus beginning to irritate.

They have kinda overkilled this campaign now. The originality was in the first ad 'Kurmis vs Bhumihars'. The fun ends there. After that, it is repetitive.

I actually like the Taj Mahal "What an Idea" ad... Current worst ad for me are the ones which gives teenagers "ideas" about how to deal with their parents .. Most notably the Virgin Mobile and the Motorola ad. Wouldnt want my children watching those

Anyone seen the Barclay's EPL credit card ad ?

We see a suspicious looking shopping at a supermarket. Suddenly he starts running with the CCTV camera's following him. He suddenly slides in towards the counter and trips another guy who was reaching the counter before him.

Everyone is shocked and the guy gets up and with a triumphant smile hands over a Barclays' EPL credit card to the guy at the billing counter.

Nice concept - I like it.
