I don't know what to make of the Godrej ad !!

The one where the professor / principal wants to come out of his strict image. When the girls tell him - "hi Sir" , he seems more embarrassed than the girls.

I guess it was the United India Insurance Campaign. It used to be aired a lot during cricket matches.

New India Assurance had cheapo ad campaigns.

Guys, Check out the new nikefootball ad. Simply Superb.
Me thinks the guy in question is Van Persie, but nevertheless very neat ad.
Take it a step further.

How about that ad of some Air hostess institute (Franklin?) where she wants to be ' different' (scare boys, roam around in shorts on railway tracks , dont want to be like mom etc.)

In the Dish TV ads, SRK tries a bit too much, and that proves to be his undoing, IMO.

Is one allowed to complain about radio advertisements here?

A certain City Plus ad on Radio Indigo 91.9 FM in BLR is very annoying. "...with all city news yet is distributed freely in Indira Nagar and
Kormangala".

What's with the "yet"? And why can't this guy pronounce Koramangala properly?

One of the great national integration ads (that irritated the entire nation) was the Parag Sarees ad (customs officer and lady). I don't think they left any language / state out in their quest to irritate.

Anybody remember this?

NO I don't think it's a promo for a movie.

Excatly! He seems to be begging instead of convincing us to buy dish TV!
