The lady could be his sister too. I feel the car lady made a hasty decision, without verifying the facts. Otherwise, he could have been well her life-partner.

One of the worst advt's aired currently is the Pepsi Advt.

The youngistan ad. Even the newest youngistan ad where that deranged speech is given in the college cafe is totally crap.

But the spoof made by Sprite (Kabristan etc) is hilarious.

The cola wars start all over again.

The BSNL marriage advt is the most dim witted, ridiculous advt I have seen in a long long time. Whet were they thinking? I looks like a group of toddlers came out with the whole idea.

Well the driver wouldn't be able to drive if any woman practised crunches like that next to him.

Guys, what about the "Lets go for a drive!!" ad by some guy (Akshay Kumar if i am not wrong) for Thumbs Up?

I hated it, the scenes were cut and pasted every 1/2 a second!! And the way he screams AAAAAAAAA back at her when she screams in fear is horrid to be mild.

I don't know if this has been discussed but I remember an old advert for Ford Ikon.

A depressed guy goes to his doctor and says he doesn't like anything and is depressed. The doc takes him for a drive in the Ikon and as he drives faster and shows off the handling of the car, the depressed guy's mood starts to change and he starts smiling and his mood starts to improve.

It doesn't sound that good but if you watch it, you would realise how well thought and well made the ad was.

No one liked the new Vodafone Ads? Its way better than that stupid and pathetic Kabhi Kabhi ad.
I liked the song.

Here it is Black & White - Stay By My Side

I love the new Vodafone involving the little girl & the usual pup! And my favourite is the one where they are sticking stamps on envelopes!
