I am allergic to SRK so disliked that ad anyway. Jet could have shown off the service and comfort of their product without wasting money on SRK or any bollywood personality.

I swear. They shuld rather show some pretty airhostess and save cash rather. Look at mallya. Yana gupta was their endorsement. Worth it.

What did you guys feel about the Reliance mobile ad where the husband goes back to the site / monument where he and his wife scratched out their names (X loves Y) and they get all sentimental.
Do they encourage us to scrawl graffiti in any place? I think the ad sets a bad example

Ho boy, my favorite all time Ad is the Denim aftershave one.

If you people remember when Denim started there Ad’s in India there first Ad was where “A young boy would be driving a thunderbird car and bridegroom’s car would have broke down and he will drop her to church and then she will change her mind and goes back to the car after he drops her at the church” that old ad was really amazing.

The new SX4 ad is a nice concept, but somehow I feel they could have added more punch to the ad. It feels a little light - not as bold and manly as I expected.
The video could have been shot a little better. The way the car and the truck brake looks very artificial.
This is just a personal opinion.

I hate this new Reliance ad where the guy going to shimla finds the defacing that he and his wife has done while on their some previous trip. I hate because of the reason it send a very wrong message to the people. We already are plagued with idiots defacing our monuments with "X loves Y" messages curved on those precious stones/walls and this ad is going to add fuel to this stupidity. I'm going to complain using the website hrag mentioned. I hope it works.

I think one of the better ads is the new Chevrolet Spark Ad - Haathi mat palo one.

One can very easily relate to it and it puts across the message loud and clear. Funny and to the point. Goes hand hand with Chevy's efforts to be seen as cars that require no maintenance.

I would love some brand guys to comment on that Ad.
