Thumbs down

For me it will the fasttrack watch ad.

Make you wanna think, what are they trying to promote.

The stupid looking watch or all the "not so appropriate relations" and maybe even AIDS.

PS: If I write in plain english, I might get a ban for life from this forum.
If you don't really understand what I'm trying to say, see the ad.

I guess that kind of ads should be "banned".
Pathetic, pointless and its degrading the moral values we have (at least as Indians).

Agreed in totality. I kept watching thinking there'd be a point to the ad, but :/

Well, I kind of like the Maruti Suzuki ad, India comes home in a Maruti Suzuki. Very apt I would say, looking at their market share!!

Another one I can think of is the Bajaj Avenger, I feel like God. Haven't been able to catch it for quite some time though. Taken off air??

Oh, that ad is the pits! Salman's brain seems to have degraded, considering the kind of movies and ads he takes up these days.

Thumbs up Mercedes Benz Design Philosophy.

This is not a TV Ad, but couldnt find a better thread to post in
Mercedes Benz's website showing their design philosophy:

Mercedes - A-to-S - Home

enjoy.

Default Honda jazz adverts - why so weird taglines?

Isnt it ironic/weird/lame that honda chose the signature line of possibly one of the best on screen villains to market its new car the jazz?

For the life of me I cant figure why they had to choose this line when they could have used a million other possible permuations of the same expression. Does anyone else in here agree with me?

edit : seems like the guys at Jalopnik have cought in on the joke as well, this is what they say

Instead of pissing off a whole culture with an indian revolution , this time automotive advertisers are putting a Joker-like spin on Honda's Jazz campaign for the sub-continent. Why so serious ?
Disregarding any pop culture references, Honda Cars India decided this would be a great way to represent their home market Honda Jazz (our Fit). Is it just us or does this seem like a crazy bad idea?

Mods : Could not figure out which thread this should be in, please excuse!

The MAruti Suzuki - Get you Maruti Suzuki to a Maruti Suzuki service center - is bang on. Nice concept with a cranky kid who smiles only when his mom picks him up
