It was not done all that convincingly I agree but they did that by showing the daughter, who was eloping with her boyfriend, having enough space in the estilo to carry most of her personal belongings required to start a new life ! Plus, if I am not mistaken, the father actually opens the hatch and remarks 'spacious' or something to that effect !

The most annoying ad has got to be that Apple Fizz crap that, somehow, shows the most during F1 races. One of those that simply don't make any sense at all.

Oh you are talking about the old advert, that one was much better than the current one which I am talking about.

Am waiting to see how FIAT does the Grande Punto launch...you have got to admit that the usual FIAT ads are pretty nifty...other than the fact that they dont run for long.

The Reliance Mobile GSM ads with Hrithik - I found them to be pathetic.

Another silly ad is the Visa card one with Vinay Pathak as the auto wallah - absolute rubbish.

The Panasonic TV ad with Ranbir Kapoor - another idiotic ad.

Not always. The ad for the 500 : running over buckets of paint was deplorable. The car was in a circular arena where it was driven over paint thrown on the floor. Absolutely no connection to what they were trying to say in what they showed the car doing in the ad.

Why oil paint ?

The Dhoni and Bipasha ad (any one remember the product ?) - another foolish ad !

Bipasha looks so out of sorts when running - no poise as a jogger. Watch her in the end start the 2nd round - she is very awkward running, maybe because of her height ?

Has anyone noticed the MRF add? The one with the Verna, and the dad takes his kid out for a drive, and MRF claims that they have the most comfy tyres, and that even a baby can sleep etc...

Anyone notice that the baby is kept in the back seat, there is not adult apart from the father(driving) and there's no car seat...WOW that's definitely a great add!

The new Parle Lite Bonbon ad. Absolutely hilarious with the ballet dancing sumo wrestlers gliding swiftly.

Absolutely. What if you want to just go to the grocer / greengrocer and do some marketing? Not everyone has a card swipe machine.

the Visa card ad is rubbish - because the auto waalah himself will not take visa card - unless visa plans to upgrade all autowaallaahs to cashless transaction mode

I have the panasonic viera - so far no success getting loads of women to my house - the odd gaming enthusiast or movie buff guy friends is all this tv attracts

YUCK YUCK - the one where Hrithik says something like his Jodha Akbar character and his friend and his colleagues and bosses clap like school kids. WTH are Reliance thinking ?
