Best Ads:

Airtel - The one with kid talking to dad on toy phone.
Sprite
Thumbs Up
and last but certainly not least, Limca - It actually refreshes your senses just seeing the ad.


Worst Ads:

Reid and Taylor - AB has really let down in this advert
Belmonte - SRK follows 'suit' with AB
Insurnace/Finance ads: Most make no sense and are basically using one common element - a kid. c'mon!!!
Hyundai Verna - Very boring ad for what is a brilliant car

One Ad that's getting into my nerves these days is the "Haath" ad by Congress. The music is damn irritating and more so is the lyrics. I hope the elections will be over soon and we'll be saved from this pain in the neck.

Guys what do you think about the new hit spray ad that is being aired now. I find it too hilarious and also informative on a mosquito can really bug(get it) your life.

I am beginning to tire of the new Aircel ad. Too focused on hard-sell, I should say. Detracts from the brand value.

Good that Dhoni's team-mates did not ask for pakoras or something. I am sure the Aircel phone would have managed to prepare them too!

The new Scorpio ad. God, that vehicle really looks going out of control in the ad. How inspiring!

...and yes the new Aircel ad. Really stupid.

I am sick of seeing this ad of lux which has that guy passing off when priyanka passes him pulling her loose strap. C'mon what do they think- he is bowled by her smooth skin or ..

Has any one seen the latest 'Frooti' ad that's being aired for the past couple of days. It's disgusting to say the least.

The ad is pretty long too- what a waste.

And yes the frooti ad goes on and on and on... i switch channels so that I dont go through the torture of seeing and hearing that AD. I have no idea what the Ad makers were thinking when they created this one.

I think the best add these days is the add for BLACK 'HIT'

In this add series, a guy escapes unhurt through all kind mishaps from his childhood days till he has grown into a man and at the end fall sick to malaria, because he was not using Black 'HIT'

The add is very funny and is aired frequently on almost all channels.

I completely agree with this these advertisements of Harpic and other cleaners are usually aired during lunch and dinner time
