Very nicely done! Mastercard ads have always been in a league of there own. My favourite one is where the guy takes his parents on a foreign trip and parents are overjoyed. Priceless

was watching channel v and came across this ad of their show called "full on"
its a totally wasted ad, and I found the rap stuff in the last 40 secs really funny especially when they say mother father

I simply hate the Boman Irani advt for washing powder.

The theme being get this washing powder so the wife can spend quality time with husband instead of washing clothes.

Alonso looks a bit fat in the ING ad. Probably the reason why his car is under performing.. Just kidding

The ING F1 ad with Renault's Fernando Alonso - concept and message is just superb.

Remember this sprite ad - a spoof on Mountain Dew


And now the present sprite ad that has already been mentioned in this thread - really cool

Anyone seen the new Bharthi ad? The one where they show an Indian was the first one who taught mathematics, and so on..

At one point of time the song from Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikander - Pehla Nasha would feature on my all time favourites list but ever since it got featured in that Bru advertisement, I have started hating it. That advertisement simply sucks!

Hahaha! have you guys seen the latest 'streax' advert.? The way Malaika Arora Khan has said "Naaice Voiice!" still makes me laugh. It is indeed an annoying ad since they have shown a girl being rejected due to her "boring black hair" which is an absolutely senseless reason for rejecting someone, but before I can get annoyed I end up laughing!

Who thinks the new ACC cement ad is showcasing the Sumo more then the cement itsel?

Brilliantly done ad though.

I wonder what you think of all the fairness cream ads - now spilling over to the male world too!
I think these ads are terrible - they associate a slightly dark complexion with failure, poor marriage, etc.
They project the feeling that only when you are fair you get good spouses, good jobs, acting careers, friends - pathetic!
In my opinion these ads are equivalent to being racist and need to be pulled off the air.

Please pull ads showing slimming products, etc etc off as well. Please ban most movies from FTA family channels - half of dialogues arent fit for small kids. Why be over moralistic on fairness products only?!

as long as there are women (and now men) who want to look as fair as possible to get good spouses, good jobs, acting careers, friends, success, etc such products and such ads to market them will always be there. However I do believe the availability of such fairness products and ads, do amplify the feelings and desires to be more fair than you currently are!!
I agree with you its a pretty lame concept (you can't change genes with a cream and a tan will go off once you avoid sun anyway), but then I am sure there are tons of people who buy this stuff !!
