If Dhoni goes to Madras (http://www.youtube.com/v/xB7KHcJrM_4), then Sreesanth goes to Punjab ( )!!

Surely it was a great advert.
The first time i saw i felt goosebumps all over.
Hats off to the creative team for that advert.

I know what i quote may not be original
"lonely people are alone cause they built walls instead of bridges with the stones that came their way"

Just saw the Bigflix.com advert on TV.
Don't know what they are endorsing but man it did make a mockery of some movies.
Hilarious

Had a good laugh

All the Hyundai ads look like they have been created by folks who get paid only in food coupons. Cr*p and no soul.

Hate the R.Madhavan-Vidya Balan ads. They have just used well-known, pretty faces to attract viewers attention.

I just hate the new Airtel Ad - Starring Vidya Balan & Madhavan. Makes me change the channel. Find the girl so irritating.

I like the new Puma Ad - nice song, good ad.

Hey anyone see the "Pony" ad ? This used to be a shoe company while I was in school and then they disappeared. I saw an ad yesterday from them announcing that they are back.

Don't know if you guys remember the Parle Melody campaign....it was a simply awesome recipe for success.
Now you guys must be wondering why is this fool calling such a senseless, irritating ad campaign an awesome recipe for success, where, in serious situations, certain jerks ask, "Melody itni chocolaty kyon hain?".
Well, let me tell you guys, we did pull our hair after seeing the commercials of that campaign, but we always remembered the product. The ads successfully reminded us of an old product existing in the market.

Absolutely spot on. And some more examples of such campaigns:

1- Coffee Bite
2- Chlormint
3- Amul (Print Campaign)
4- Fevicol
