That's for Vodafone Customer Service. Lovely ads - simple and convey the message effectively.

LOL - just remembered - anyone seen the Getz Prime ad - now with beige interiors one ?

As dry and soul-less as an Ad ever could be.

The pup is no longer usual and it is not a pup! The original pup was a female and has died. They got a replacement and this one is a male. Moreover, its not a pup at all. Its a full grown, adult Pug.

For me, the worst advertising in TV is that of HCL Technologies. (The airport - jacket incident)

Hope you all might have seen this one. The old guy mistakenly wears the young HCL chaps jacket, which has 'HCL' written on it, and from that moment on, everyone around starts appreciating this old guy for some crap reason!!

The worst part is, when he gets into the plane and sits down, the lady nearby - who was using an HCL laptop - approaches him and asks something related to the laptop. You can't really make out what she is asking but it can easily create a bad impression because the whole drama looks like:

Lady: Hi..! You work for HCL?
Lady: Well I have this laptop and there's a problem with that I cannot....


I am wondering whether or not the HCL folks are getting embarrassed when this Ad is aired.

BTW, There's another ad in which the HCL chap tries to go overseas for a life sciences project in a helicopter which takes off from the middle of a desert...!!! Aaaarghhh..!

I think Shiv Nadar will be most embarrassed with this HCL ad.

Did anyone notice the new PT teacher of India ?? Jump = Run = Leap etc etc

Hrithik Roshan in the Cinthol ad !

And also the NECC ad - where Sachin goes "aaaaooooooooooo - arre kya khaata hai ?" when the small boy shakes his hand - had me in splits.

the current worst ad may be the be the new marie gold add - yo marie
another nonsense ad is new fanta add - lagaa - nahi lagaa.

why the brands accept these senseless adds to go on air ?

Exactly 1 month post my graduation, one of my friends was distributing sweets. We all thought that he's still celebrating teh success of graduation. However, it turned out he had become a brother to a little gal! so that chances are pretty high

One silly ad is the Amul Macho, where the monkey or Orangutans are saying - Yeh to bada Tooiing hai. I remember the earlier ads were banned due to "adult" content
