Anyone liked the new Centre Fresh chewing gum ad? Its hilarious but looses its charm once you have seen it.

I like the Getsz prime ad, where a blonde (though bald) from Milan (which is in Italy) is visiting to India. She surprised to see a car and she removes her dark goggles and recognizes it as Getsz prime, the same car she drives in Milan.

Inside she is happy that her car has beige but not this. But her driver lifts her goggles and then she is enchanted by beish intertiors.

She thinks this car is specially imported for her from Italy. Her driver (who doesn't want to spoil her joy) tells her that her car in Italy was sent from India .

The new Maruti AD is amazing. It has a stunner of a tagline.

Yes! Maruti has chosen kind of senti tagline, so that people not only buy it for its A.S.S, resale, but also since they are sentimental about the brand. More like a "Hamara Bajaj" or "Desh ki Dhadkan ad". But well made though.

They also suggest people who don't have a car to ask for lift from Maruti owners. So a large majority of Indians(Since only 7% of Indians own cars) come home in a Maruti Suzuki !

I searched for that ad on youtube. However, I guess its not yet available there. Wonderful concept and yes, I can see myself attached to it as I come home in my Maruti Suzuki Zen

I noticed it, and just to make sure, concentrated on the ad the next time i saw it, just to confirm i wasnt dreaming. So, this is how they plan on maximising mileage?

Aamir has suddenly started to go public with his new look, and obviously to promote Gajini. As for the ad in question, i detest it. Boring ad, and gets VERY irritating when repeated.

Its not perfect in everyway, but has a very good and warm feel to it, IMO
Excellent ad from Maruti. I just love the concept, and also the background music. So true, and so touching.

If yes, then it didn't include the state of Maharashtra in it.
No, this one featured Renuka Shahane and some guy whose name I forget.

Mohnish Behl - son of Nutan. But the song "Angrezi mein kehte hai, Bengali mein kehte hain.." is picturised on AB and Parveen Babi from the movie Khuddar - if I remember correctly.

The Getz Prime with whatever interiors is the worst ad ever made!! Horrible concept. I agree some blondes are dumb, but the ad proved that they are dumber. Trying to figure out color with flares on is as good as trying to play chess during a blackout

Another not-so-great ad is that of the Indigo CS. Class matters. Style matters. But in the end your next-door-boss aint that mean. He doesnt snatch your plate in the canteen. Doesnt throw paper ***** while you are sipping coffee. And I guess the Fusion takes a hit too

Wink

. Instead of taking a cue from Bajji and giving a tight on the cheeks, the chicken head employee buys CS to humble his boss !!! Buy CS only if you have a boss like that

Is she a blonde to begin with? I guess she must be a indian girl "converted" to blonde with some cheap make up.

I guess they are actually trying to tell, "boot" matters.
