Me too, somehow I'm not able to digest their tag called "Santrowale". It sounds very irritating to me somehow. If I had a Santro I would've sold it the next day I've seen those ads (btw I like Santro's, good car for that money)

New Pepsi Youngistan Ad: Now even pepsi has gone the Sprite way, making a mock out of the Thumsup Ad.

I absolutely loved the new Chennai Super Kings ad with "Yem" "Yes" "Dhoni" with big side locks, moustache, lots of gold & dressed in a lungi!!

Super hilarious especially with the Rajnikant style stunts he does!

The Optra Magnum car ad is a bit silly.

Its raining pretty heavy , this guy is driving on a ghat road and he zooms in it.

Then a disclaimer says: This is performed by trained professionals please do not try this.

Whats the point in this then? Its like saying even if you buy an Optra Magnum you will not be able to do any of the things shown in the AD.

I quite like the new "Moto Yuva" ad - where the dad tries to ape his son's mannerisms and then is sheepish on getting caught.

Agree with iraghava and n_c. Both ads are fantastic. The Dhoni ad is super hillarious and he pulls it off with consummate ease Talk about alternative career options for Dhoni. hehe

The "Dus ka Dum" programme ka ad where Salman Khan in his weird English accent goes - Soony Inntertainement Television" - cracks me up big time.

Yeh, I recently saw the Ad and it's hideous. Made me roll up my eyes and stare at the ceiling.... It also made me think what kinda idiots would want to be part of such an atrocity and make a mickey of themselves on National Television. But then, people do much worse for 15 seconds of fame.

The Thums Up ad with Akshay and the red hot beauty is awsome. Does anyone know what's the background score playing on that one, it keeps playing in my mind all the time. It's perfect for driving
