Thanks a lot motorheadinc for the link. BRILLIANT AD I must say . I normally don't watch TV even for half an hour a day. This surely helped!

Default Sumo Grande Ad, an observation

I am sure all of you have watched the Sumo Grande ad on TV which shows a girl following a guy driving the sumo grande and later on she finds out that the guy is married and has a kid, I guess the girl is pretty cute (& so is the kid) but that is not what I meant when I said something about an Interesting observation, can anyone tell me what car is the girl driving (see I told you I was not inetrested in the girl). I have watched this AD several times and it seems that she is driving a Tata car, if so is it a Tata indigo convertible with a plush interiors and an automatic. The car does look good I hope something like this makes it to India.

I don't know if this ad has been mentioned before but I think it's the worst ad till date. The indian oil xtra premium one where a family pulls up in a scorpio asking for xtrapremium dressed up in space suits saying bahut door tak jana hai.

Absoulutely lame ad!!

The car the girl is driving is not an indigo...its an peugot
The ad film has been shot in Malaysia and the both cars sport Indian Reg plates.
(The girl is a brazilian model-just for info-i know you not interested)

And is that supposed to be PZ's fault?? Your statement seems to suggest so.

It's a Peugeot 207 or 307 CC, can't remember for sure which one.

Hi

The car model is 206cc, it is quite common between females in UK. Never saw a man driving that in during my span of 5 years in UK.

I wonder how people here missed the Hyundai Inverter advertisement featuring the 2 Chak De girls. "Yeh battery nahin Battera hai", "Baaki inverters ko isne diya thok", "Power cut ki toh bhains ki pooch" are a few dialogs it presents. Totally disgusting and crap. The advertisement agency should be stoned.

I also thought the same, perhaps the kind of people they are trying to reach like these characters. No wonders that is the reason the TRP rating of channels like India TV or Aaj tak are so high.

I find the BSNL shero-shayari Ad quite funny. Nice on that.

This advert is also featured on channels like Times Now. That is how I came to know of it. Else I would have never known.

Wouldn't it have been more effective if a woman popped up instead of a kid?

Just because a kid is sitting in the car doesn't mean it's his. The kid could be his nephew or neighbours kid too.

Yes, the woman in the peugeot is very hot.

Saw the Ad, of Sumo Grande, an observation!! i belive in the earlier aired ads, the kid in the front is not wearing seat belts. But the ads running now since saturday or friday i gues, they somehow got the Seatbelt. Just look at the kids carefully. What software is used to Get that thing in the Ad ??
