Thanks for the Info F50.

I tried searching for the song with the keywords u mentioned but was not able to get any way nearer to the song.

As some one had already mentioned maybe its a jingle made specially for vodafone. If that is a case then i (and i can bet many others too) have to settle with the one minute song.

In case anyone has the link to the full song(if at all it exists) then please post here....

Thanks in advance.

Looks like they have made a video out of images and one small exterior video. Looks like they used Windows Movie Maker

Just love the new Vodafone ad. Well trained pug and awesome direction.

The new LIC ad where many people help keep the paper boat moving is so amateur...too bad.

I love the Ray Ban sunglasses advts.

The old ones which were inspired by the movie Top Gun (fighter plane pilot's wearing Ray Ban's) was cool.

The new advt has a catcy rock number playing in the background where a guy jumps off a bridge with a bungee cord tied to his feet etc. Love that music. Just not able to place which song/artist it is.

Nowadays i started hating the vodafone ads. They are overdoing it. Too much of something spoils you and this is whats happening. Every ad spot on tv has the dog running around!!!

Quite true. I guess they should nt play it so often. But since the song is good few of them wont mind.

how did they feel that the pug was in pain ? The expression on the pug's face ?

And what about all the stray dogs who keep chasing cars / cyclists / people all day ? They do not feel pain ?

@normally... I read somewhere that due to the way the pug's nose is structured, it is difficult for them to breathe normally. In this case they made him run around for takes, re-takes and god know what. Imagine what the little dog must have gone through. I am wondering why this thought didnt came to my mind, after seeing the advert. I am already feeling bad for the little dog.

Its the stupidest thing I have heard .

Animal Welfare Board must be sued for making animals lazy and handicapped, since they won't let any animal do any physical activity

If the pug has a problem with breathing doesn't mean that it has to idle around in the couch. Though walking the pug is recommended, a small running wouldn't matter. A little exercise will do no harm.

ET - thanks for the article - I did a google and came up with this - Pug Information and Pictures, Pugs, Carlin, Mops . Nothing really to worry about I feel. A bit of activity is good but I feel the guys who shot the ad must have taken care (let's hope) - these days it's difficult to get away from Animal Welfare guys.

Okay I agree that the pug may have problems with a lot of takes and re-takes but if the animal rights groups have problems, why don't they move the Govt. to come up with norms which will make it mandatory for filmmakers to approach and appoint some official from the animal welfare board to be present at the time of the shooting and keep a watch on the proceedings rather than make a lot of hue and cry about it after it becomes popular? By making a lot of noise after the advertisement has gained popularity, all they are demonstrating is that they are here for the publicity and there is nothing more to it. Just my 2 cents.
