This reminds me a joke came across in good old Doordarshan days. (Related to Ads). It goes like this. I heard in hindi and I am writing it in hindi.

---------------
Interviewer: Namaskar, kya aap doordarshan dekhte hain kya?
The Person: ha ha, jaroor. har din dekhte hain.

I: aapko kya kya programs acha lagatai hain?
TP: mere ko nirma acha lagata hai, lifebuoy bhi acha lagatai hain.

I: Acha, programs kya kya pasand karte hain?
TP: ha ha , VIP suitcase, lizzat papad aur britania bhi acha lagata hain.

the interviewr, getting pissed off after some time......as the person keep on listing ads names.

I: Nahin bhai saab, my advertisements ke baare me nahin pooch rahan hoon. programs ke baare me.. jaisa, chitra haar, samachar, hum log ...
TP: Oho !..... aap beech beech me aane valE ka baat kar rahe hain ... kya........
I: :(

Oh the Red FM one's are really cool especially Angry Ganeshan!! But even better are the public service messages they put out!! Last one I heard was about a Page 3 socialite throwing a party for her dog's nail cutting ceremony They make a mockery of people on so many subjects!

talking of Radio characters - Ungle Appukuttan Nair from 91 FM in Bangalore is really good; look forward to hearing him, though i have tuned off 91 due to their really long ad-breaks and RJs with verbal diaherroa..... except for Darius who was cute, but he disappeared sometime back......

That Boxer ad was definitely one of the worst ideas I have seen .. Forget the ring, someone give a few KO punches to the guys who thought that up.

Atleast "ungle" doesnt fall below avg. Does any one here even remotely like Radio Mirchi's filling jokes? I dont think I am the only one who doesnt ..

Dont remember having mentioned this before, but the Times of India TV advert showing the hockey player and his grandfather is simply superb! Simple concept but excellent execution.

The other TOI one shown in cinema halls - the one where a Rs 100 note travels from a taxi guy , changing various hands on the way only to land up in the same taxi guys hands again - is also nice.

The Orbit ad - where 3 guys try to film the girl ...err...exposing , and the guy covers her up with his jacket - is Pathetic.

Has anyone seen the Bank of India ad where the kid travels through all sorts of terrain with his "piggy" bank? I found it very charming.

Edit : Mods, can we call this thread nice as well as irritating ads on TV? .
