Allow me to add the Parachute ad featuring Yuvraj Singh and Shreeshanth to the worst possible ad list.

Yuvraj keeps speaking some rubbish and in the background you see a monkey break dancing.

Aegon-Religare pension plan ad featuring Irrfan Khan is very funny. I can't hold laughing loudly whenever I see this ad. At the same time, it is quite educational about the importance pension plan.

@Ferrarimaniac : this ad comes on TV. However, the one that comes on TV is edited a bit. Great ad tho'

Default thermal wear ad

hi folks!

can you help me with an advertisements on thermal wear which was
aired some 2-3 years back.
it has our actor-director Satish Kaushik in it and is very funny ad.

i want to know the brand name of the thermal/winter wear
and the clip of the commercial also!
the ad seems to have dissappered as it is not very cool
but i want it anyways!

Thanks!

I am saved from the horrors of watching TV, but yesterday I was having tea at the bakery and I saw the CBZ-xtreme ad (which is my bike, but the older model)

I didn't enjoy my tea one bit. what the heck are the guys at HH thinking.

The dumbest bike ad i've seen is the Yamaha Alba.. the girl gets a damned tattoo for that bike all over her back !!! give me a break !

Anyone seen the new i20 ad? Comments?
Looks like they have taken over from M&M with respect to the helicopter in the ad.

The latest ad from CEAT tyres for their bike tyre is the PITS - quite easily the worst ad since the last 3 months.

Sad ad for a car with great looks and great features - none of which come out clearly in the ad because of the lighting and the editing.
Very unoriginal and old idea too - the copter/airplane chasing or lighting up a bike / car.

With so many new cars released in the last 2 months there are quite a few ads.
Fiat Linea is a cute ad and has a very catchy tune.
The Xylo is fairly straightforward but better than the i20 ad. It at least succeeds in showing the car and some features better.
The Indica Vista ad is standard.
The Honda City ad (waterfall etc) is different but I didnt understand the concept.
The A-star ad is quite good. Not very original but at least you can see the car and it appears bright!

The ad jingle and music are quite catchy on the Visa prepaid ad.
