hate the Idia Tajmahal ad, Simply cant understand why they dont use a pen and paper to communicate but than it was IDEA's idea so "WHAT AN IDEA"

And that Vodafone "kabhi kabhi" too irritate

And best ad is the Happydent ad, where the guy runs to reach the palace. classic one.

I also hate that add. Giving a cellphone to a person who cant speak is really "what an idea"! huh.

One ad i really liked was the Honda Racing ad that comes during the F1 races. Absolutely love the expressions on the kid's face!

Another ad that I like is a candy ad. An oldie in his car asks a kid if he is parking it alright when he is taking the car in reverse gear. He asks the kid 'lag rahee hai kya?'. the kid says nahin lag rahee hai. The oldie asks the kid a couple of more times to hear the same response and then bang!!! the moment the car' behind hits the wall, the kid says, "ab lag gayee"

Dont remember the name of the candy

yes, the one that did the rounds during the T20 World Cup. and quite rightly Reliance stopped that campaign after the T20 got over. Good decision.

Not really, but even for the 'limited' time for which i watch TV, they show up so much. Imagine watching one particular programme, and the same damned ad being shown 3-4 times. Beat that !

I agree. The vodaphone ad "Kabhi Kabhi" is very irritating. Damn ad is aired every 2 mins and on almost all channels.

The Virgin mobile ad's are hilarious. But kids should be restrained from watching those.

This is a hilarious one i still remember :

Reliance had the punch line - Kar lo duniya muthi mein, and they were featuring our cricket player Dhoni. One of the matches Dhoni was out for a duck. Punchline was made fun of by a newspaper -- Kar lo sussu chaddi mein.

Thumbs up Orbit Ad

Orbit Advrt. where everyone is smiling. specially the female who bumps into a car in front and smiles at the driver of the other car. Nice music too.

The other one with the cow and the dentist was irritating.
