To me it was Honda city ad where a son and father would travel in Honda city and in strom also the car was well behaved and at the end of that ad, a small insect would comeout of some place of NHC and the son and father would drop that insect at some shrub.


Well observe that here when it starts raining and an umbrella falls on the road, the NHC TURNS RIGHT TOWARDS FOOTHPATH AND THE STEERING IS SHOWN TO BE TURNING TO LEFT! And to bring the car again in straight line, the steering should be turned left, but the steering is turned right!

This was a joke from Honda's side.

The new Samsung mobile ad with Aamir Khan - didn't make the cut for me. Seems like they made the ad to show off his new look for his upcoming movie.

The Parle Monaco one is good though.

Dunno boss.I found the guy quite irritating and he was lucky the boss did not beat the cr** out of him. Of course to each one his own. Mirinda ads are usually pretty cool though.


Another one for the dumps is the BSNL ad where we have a whole bunch of kids try to dance, dj, rap and look cool and excited all because they get 2MBPS in download speeds.Guess this is a step forward from those cr***y Preity Zinta ads though..

They now have a disclaimer in the advt, which reads something like Donkeys are not to be used for transporting people and stuff.

Anybody remember this?
Are you talking about the ad "Angrezi mein kehte... , bengali mein khehte hai..... " blah blah ad featuring yesteryear's actress Bhagyashree.

If yes, then it didn't include the state of Maharashtra in it.

But some aspects are not realistic, e.g., a uniformed chauffer-driven Maruti Omni to drop kids?
And I think the ad doesn't have all Maruti cars in it. I guess the SX4 is missing.

Best "national integration" ads in my books:
1) Hero Honda Desh ki Dhadkan
2) Hamara Bajaj

Loved the Maruti Suzuki ad: India comes home in a Maruti Suzuki.

Its not perfect in everyway, but has a very good and warm feel to it, IMO
