I like the new Idea Mobile ad where, this so called angrezi guy inquires about an address to the Village boy his english accent and hindi words, and to his astonishment, the village boy replies in English. the village kid looks soo cute when he speaks english.

What an IDEA SIR JI?

Well aamirs samsung ad is nice till the end where he jumps off the building which looks so fake.
Liked aamirs titan ad. ANyone seen it.
Well the vodafone ad looked like someone asking for directions.

I loved the ad for some chrono watch where the guy is driving in this car in reverse and talking to two gals in another car.
Anything which your watch doesnt show.
Ya your mobile number. Nice ad

Nice but old concept. The other one where an old dadaji prays in English before eating his meals and proudly says my grand daughter taught me to his shocked friend - is better.

Why do the words and music playing in the back ground remind me of - "Everyone wants to wear sunshine by Baz Luhrman"

Any one else feel the same too ?

Default VW Jetta

VW Jetta advt: Don't understand need of foreigners for a car having mumbai registration. It would have been apt to show an Indian driving it. An European person (and a VW fan) may anyways prefer to use a VW car even when in India. So what's the point being conveyed by showing a foreigner driving a Jetta?

The jingle for the ad too is inappropriate. It makes you feel it is a matrimonial ad. It goes like-"Matchmaker, matchmaker find me a match...."

The advt is a foreign one. The Mumbai registeration on the car is computer wizardy.

You can see the orginal one on youtube.

The Vodofone conference call ad is just funtastic.
So natural, yet creative. Man, everytime I see this ad, I laugh along...

The Bajaj follow up ad is great too. Sheeeaaaa !

The Cadbury's ad - "Kenya jeet gaya" is also nice, brings a smile to my face.

ps - Anyone notice in the new Tata Sumo ad, right at the end, when the voice over says Tata Sumo Grande - you can see the Sumo literally want to take off
