BTW beware of Country Club. Many who were promised of a site haven't seen a thing.

From the first time I saw these ads I always thought something is fishy about this company & the fat, balding bugger in the ads with this thumb up! We had many years back lost quite a bit of our money in a similar scheme of "Suman Motels Ltd." and ever since then we never invest in such schemes.

Fat guy giving a thums up reminds me of the Late Gulshan Kumar ! I used to always see him at the end of any T-Series ad giving a thums up.

I'm really tired of seeing the Madhavan-Vidya Balan ads now. Any channel I tune into broadcasts these ads again and again. :(

I really enjoy this Monster.com ad. The guy wanted to be a rockstar but ends up being a librarian. The ad starts with him playing a guiter like they do in heavy rock and just when he yells yaaaaaaa... yaaaaawn he is in a library yawning in the next scene. The way he gets irritated with a guy and gal coohi cooing, It is very funny.

I think two girls are shown giggling in the ad.

I just hate the new Vodafone conference facility ad where a few guys are helping a friend of theirs wear a necktie. It gets repetitive after watching it the first time and is extremely vulgar. Very bad way to grab eyeballs and ears!

how do they teach reading & forming letters, sentences, writing, etc without a blackboard with a !dea phone? All they're teaching is orals or as we used to call in engineering 'Viva's'

Kinda like the ads in the !dea series. They have maintained a great link and continuity in those ads.
Find the Mirinda ad with Asin pretty irritating!
