1. Design a house
2. (Lady takes out tap)
3. Around this

How about that?!
Great suggestion! but it's too late now.
BTW are you working for an ad agency or this thought just came to your creative mind?

The new advt for Amaron Motorcycle batteries is very funny.

It goes something like this.
Husband and wife watching TV.
Lots of coughing in the background.
Man gets up and goes to check...

Will not break the suspense right now.

Feeling flattered by your comment.
I'm in the medical field - not in ad agencies.
Wouldn't mind a part time job though!

The iPill ad.
Totally disgusting.
Just to fill their pockets with money, these guys are indirectly encouraging unprotected sex, and how clever the mother does not mention that the iPill does not protect against STDs and can have serious long term side effects.

The AMD ad with Vishwanathan Anand is quite cool - not the cricket one, the previous one.
You can view it here
Nice Indian ad for AMD

There have been many in both categories. One recent worst ad that comes to mind is Lalit Modi and Tata Indicom.

Well said I dont know whose idea was it to feature Lalit Modi. Of course I loved the IPL maybe he should do what he does best start another season of it soon and not into branding.

The BIG BAZAR ad simply is the PITS. The one where the guy shaves and puts on a blue kurta during Diwali just because his neighbours look at him suspiciously.

Hero Honda multi-starer ad seems to be very irritating to me, it looks like a script-less ad to me !!

Chevy U-VA new starring Saif giving lift to opponents looks good to me, though driving the car straight to court looks a bit weird to me

The Hero Honda's ads are beyond pathetic. And that's for all of them. The last good ad from them was the one for the original CBZ starring Lara Dutta!

"aaj match hai?", "dikhao! jaao jaake chai banao" awesome ad.Brilliantly executed. Much better than all previous Tata sky ads and those of Big TV, "Santusht TV" ads

AirTel voice SMS ad with Saif and SRK "I miss you so much, it hurts" - he sounds like he is constipated when he says that.
