Oh yeah ! and not to miss the 'Mighty Muscular Scorpio' bit - the new Scorp is supposed to be the tiger with a 'jaws open' look - with that silver tooth filling and all!

OT - it there is point in that commercial where the vehicle appears to be on the verge of losing control on the crest of a dune?

to be honest I found the scorpio commercial lame...(no offence to scorpio owners, I like the car not the commercial.) It didn't inspire me to have one, like the way the safari commercials do with the epic scenery and catchy tagline "reclaim your life"!

Mighty Muscular made me

cheers

About the scorpio ad:

Happened to watch janasheen (fardeen/celina disaster) playing on late night TV.
The Feroz khan entries with his black suited goons reminded me of the scorpio ad!

Brand recall of a different kind! Sigh!

Hmm. I think the BBC ad sucks. There is a certain element of disconnect in what they are trying to say. Just does not home in. And their anchors must be put to sleep. My god, they are the same people I have been seeing on this channel for over 10 years!

Brings back memories from flying Air India or Indian Airlines...blech!

Does anyone know the link to a video for this advert. I searched, but could not find any.

I don't like the Pepsi, first ball ka Captain advt.

Don't like the Indian Team captain asking some chokra if he is in the team or not.

But then again he is not the Indian team captain but rather plays for a private club called BCCI.

Aamir Khan's ads are quite interesting and different. The new Tata Sky ad seems to be good

Surprising that noone has commented on the new BMW X5 ad. I really liked this one especially with the comparisons.
