Guys, this ad is sort of sequel. In the previous ad mom was advising dad about kid's education, his retirement etc, and in this ad, the kid is just repeating what mom was saying. Even otherwise, kids nowadays are too smart

I guess the Honda ad, not the new city one, but, the previous one was excellent.
And so was the nike ad who runs in shade all along the ad.

and

worst goes to latest "airtel tv" ad it is quite sad and also "big tv" by reliance if i am not wrong.

Another advert which features some over smart kid is the new Meswak Toothpaste ad.[/quote]

OK, since over-smart kids in ads are being discussed here, what do you guys think about the girl featured in the 'Parachute Starz' range of kiddie toiletries series of ads?!
IMHO, she is the epitome of over-smartness. If the concept of the ad and director demanded over-smart behaviour from the kid then I'm scared, a very bad message is being conveyed to certain audiences.

Have any of you guys seen the 'Jivraj 9 chai' ad?
Awesome concept, direction, performances and implementation, but unfortunately the ad/concept isn't appropriate for the product IMHO.

p.s.: How do you upload videos from sites like Youtube?

Have you guys seen the SET WET Zatak deo ad in which a skinny guy is dancing with 2 miniature axes. It's a take on the AXE Shock and Recover deo ad.

The Airtel ad featuring Shreyas Talpade and Darshan Jariwala is a sweet ad wherein the insecurities of a father and a son have been depicted well.

All Fevicol ads are really creative.

There is a really sucking ad of some Swagat or Shweta BANIYAN (inner vest) - "Tumhare dil ke paas kaun rahta hai...Shilpa ya Sania? Nahin nahin Swagat Baniyan"

Yes. Poor ad, with zero originality.

Have you guys seen the latest HDFC Standard Life ad yet? It's Dizzzzgusting!
Which man on earth would ask his friend's kid "Aur agar tumhare papa kho gaye toh?". The ad becomes even more ridiculous when the kid's mother tells him, "Tumhare papa kabhi nahi khoyenge" or something like that because his father has got the company's life insurance policy. Yackkk!

Ad for Base terminal battery damn funny. Some official test driver on a test track wearing a ferrari jersey rips around a warehouse in a bmw 3 series. After some stunts he crashes the car. The car pictured changes from the grey 3 series to a black cielo. The car is totaled but the base terminal battery survives and is rescued by the test driver.
