Pathetic ad - and another ad that showcases how terrible the Indian marriage scene is!
LOL what else do you expect from BSNL? They also had a horrible advertisement for their broadband service, some dumb boy dancing to equally dumb desi-rap.

Some of you must have seen this Honda ad. Its a cool ad and very well taken - shows the parts of the car in sequence.
You can see the ad here: Honda accord ad - absolutely awesome

From snopes.com: Honda Cog Commercial
There are no computer graphics or digital tricks in the film. Everything you see really happened in real time exactly as you see it.
The film took 606 takes. On the first 605 takes, something, usually very minor, didn't work. They would then have to set the whole thing up again.
The crew spent weeks shooting night and day. The film cost six million dollars and took three months to complete including a full engineering of the sequence.

Post EDITED since it contained various [FONT], [COLOR] and [SIZE] tags.
Posting with such text formatting should be avoided on Team-BHP as it is inconvenient for members to read post.

Thanking You for your anticipated co-operation

For me the worst ad will be the SX4 "who is the man now ?"

Playing chicken with a big rig ?

Way to go Maruti Suzuki.

Now ain't that a true man thing, even if its a totally irresponsible and stupid ad from a well known company who should atleast "try" to act responsible.

Instead of SX4 men are back, it should be SX4 let play chicken.
Shame such a crap ad for a nice car.

Illogical!

I like the latest ad from the Airtel DTH. Very good jingle. Is it also composed by A.R.Rehman?

Yep i did. In fact there was an article in the paper on that. Apparently reliance made the ad overnight and used up the opportunity making viewers to think that the original teaser was for big tv
