Kajol and Ajay Devgan even include their kid for the home appliance ads. Not a new thing in today's commercialzed world.

I hate the fact that every time i turn the TV On, I am being bombarded with OBAMA-McCain election.

GOD THIS IS INDIA! Do you ever see Indian Elections on American TV?????
We dont get so much coverage for Indian elections in our own country, and now our own low self esteem Indian media (dog fed by American media, specially INDIA TIMES NOW) is bombarding our brains with constant American news...................sucks!

A small coverage is fine, but treating it like they are Local Indian Elections is like degrading yourself and your country!

A lot and i am being very conservative here depends on this elections for the whole world economies.

In the present Economic turmoil all eyes are on America. Like someone said if America sneezes the world catches a fever.

The virgin mobile ads - IMHO are in POOR taste.. the free incoming, the nurse.
However, the moto Yuva Advert .. where the father takes the sons mobile.. "keewl! catch you later..! i was rolling on the floor...

2 ads i like currently are

1) the ad where the kid says Czechoslovakia

2) the tata sky plus ad where amir khan does all house work for his wife and then in the end realises he doesn't need to

Sir, not sure if you have seen or remember this - one of the print automotive advertisements in the 80s/90s was for the Diamond brand of chain & sprocket kit. It featured the legends Anita & Jagat Nanjappa with some memorable taglines:

Marriage made in the Mechanic's Shed (or Garage, I forget the exact words).

The ad ends with the words:
Their marriage was made in heaven. And driven through hell.

Will try and scan & put it up. I don't see anything wrong in a real life couple promoting a service / product.

I also quite like the shahrukh-saif ad where they he punches saif to record a voice sms "i miss you much it hurts" - not that convincing a voice msg, but good ad concept though

I'd say, they wasted a lot of potential. They could've got a lot better outta these actors.

I'm not able to make sense of these 2 ads

1. Birla Sun Life Insurance - The husband tries hard to convince his wife but gets the Insurance just like tht. What the hec? I din't walk out of my house to get 2 LIC policies. So is the case for most companies right?

2. Tata Indicom Ad with Karan Johar - He does what his heart says? It only asks him to make SRK movies with the same old beaten to death formula! And what does that have to do with Tata Indicom?

Has anyone seen the latest Mastercard ad. The one where a group of friends have a reunion in a fine dining restaurant, with flashbacks from their college days! Simply superb!!
