Country Club is also one such ad, both print and media, where one Mr. Y. Rajeev Reddy, CMD appears all the time

ICICI Life Insurance latest ad is really nice. I like the last scene where the kid daughter blesses her dad - "insurance yoga karte raho aur jeete raho !"

Motorheadinc you are right! This man is a real thug!
I remember our admin dept circulating an email (YR 2002) asking all employees to be careful of this guy as he may cheat us! He is a real DHEETH fellow!

Did anyone see his latest Dubai Wala ad?

Alright, he owes his fitness to Yoga and a simple Indian diet, but do you guys think his diet comprises of MDH masalas. Certainly not. And he's trying to convince us to eat what he doesn't.
And I don't think, him being featured in any ad is going to help in selling MDH products except for probably in his home town where he may be well known, respected and an opinion leader.
No offence meant to you DCEite.

OT: Another man who is fighting fit at 93 is Mr.M.F.Hussain. He was present at some award function aired on T.V. and I am not exaggerating , when he was shown walking on stage from a distance, the way he walked made me feel that it was some very fit and active guy who is in his 40's only to later realise that it was him!
Hats off to him too!

He is a pukka Lala Ji, who wants to do everything on his own.
I respect him as an elderly person but what is the fun in killing the poor TV viewers by appearing as an ad hero every 5 minutes!

The Saffola Active ad that I saw today was simply awesome. Since I did not find it on Youtube am unable to upload it for your perusal.
It goes somewhat like,
VO: "Medicines ka kharch- do hajaar rupaye"
"Operation ka kharch- do laakh rupaye
"Naya Saffola Active-sirf pichanave rupaye".
followed by something like "apne dil ka khayal rakhna".
Kind of experienced a 'deja vu' on seeing the ad....could be because it seems to be an old school kind of an ad/old concept in advertising or because it's a simple concept we can easily relate to.

The body warmer ad - where a couple arrive for their honeymoon and the cold room has no wood to light the fire and then the hotel sends Boman Irani in body warmers to sit at the fireplace !!

And he shyly looks away while the couple go about their honey moon

Pathetic ad !

I hate the ICICI Pridential ad - the one with the oversmart kid. I detest kids who are too smart for their own good!
