Yeah! I agree. But the worst part is the teacher has already started collecting the papers and the girl and the boy keep smiling at each other instead of writing!

I am also completely in awe of the new Bajaj XCD125 ad. All Bajaj ad campaigns rock!

Yeah, but at that moment the girl is shown to be tense because the supervisor has already started collecting the papers and she is out of ink! And if they have fallen in love, she certainly isn't going to complete the paper. Then what's the use of the ink given on credit?!

Actually, I'm stupid. In a country where actors like Rajanikanth, who defy all the laws of Physics, Chemistry and Biology in their movies are treated as God, such minor mistakes can be overlooked.

This ad certainly isn't flawless. It might have been a great concept, but the implementation is a failure.

Repeatedly saw the ad after reading these comments. Didn't feel that such a mistake exists!

The girl turns and smiles at the boy (after filling ink), and the turns back! Even the boy turns towards his table by the time the screen starts to fade. I dont think there is any such mistake in the ad. IMHO, its a good execution of a nice theme.

I learnt 2 things after watching the i10 ad.

1) When you want to race - you have to push your steering down.

2) And you have to turn your car in any direction in reverse to find out it's handling abilities.

And the extra thing I learnt - you get more power by opening the sunroof to out run a sports bike !

The Crabtree ads ?

I love the one where the girl is walking away with her husband and he switches her tears off and on

I HATE the Standard Electricals ad.

The poor guy asks a simple question about the brand he is using and the electrician replies like a smart alec- dc current surging..and what not.

I would give him one tight rap across his face and ask him the question again - KAUNSA LAGA RAHE HO ?

Find them rather irritating actually!

Another ad I really like nowadays is the Blender's Pride Music CD's (Yeah, RIGHT!!! ). The concept is simple & beautifully executed & the girl is really beautiful too!

Max Life insurance:
That Sanju Sanju Ad, i completely loathe it.
As if getting irritated watching it during the regular ad breaks isn't enough.
In the middle of the match eating half your screen with Max Life Insurance.
At least i am never going anyway near them.

Has anyone seen the BIG FLIX ads?

They have spoofs of Sawariya, Matrix and OSO. Liked the OSO part with the guy dancing in an SRK get up singing "Ghar mein Disco"

I like the Vodafone ink ad. Very cute and lovable. Way way better than the Kabhie Kabhie ad

Yeah, I realised my mistake after watching the ad once again. I'm extremely sorry for having gone overboard with my comments.
