I like the Honda Jazz commercial. Catchy tune it's got but couldnt understand the ad per se. Why so serious? Cactus? beats me !!!

i didnot like the new pulsar ad.

an Indian robs a bank and rides away in the new 220. Why an Indian?

No Hard feeling - I Love the Pulsar but somehow the ad is disturbing. I loved the earlier pulsar theme

PS: in the GP ad Yuvi is not wearing seat belt.

Actually he does not look like an Indian at all. He looks like a mexican.

Fastest Indian - meant the Indian Bike. IMO!

The guy is south american, "The Fastest Indian" refers to the Pulsar.

Anyone know the song in the ad, I am looking for it?

The new 220 advert in itself is good but it makes absolutely no sense for the Bike.

It looked more like he got beamed up(ala star trek) than running away on the fastest Indian

The bajaj pulsar ad surely made me smile. They used a benicio del toro look alike and got the point across really really well. The bike is fast!

talking about bike ads, anyone seen the new "genie" commercial for the bajaj xcd 135?
another cracker of an advert!
whoever is doing the campaigns for bajaj is doing an awesome job. Hero Honda on the other hand is still ferrying Hrithik in the uberstupid pseudo nomex suit. is there an advert as pointless as the "dhak dhak go" one?

p.s. : dont miss the part of the "dhak dhak go" commercial where irfan pathan comes in charging and then sehwag whacks him for the six. I laughed out when I saw that!

Why not? As if India only have only good people all around But anyway it was referring to the bike not the man.

The Pulsar ads always showed the riders wearing helmets.. looks like they forgot it this time round.

I love the Pulsar 220 DTSi advert..... the look on the faces and the acts are million dollar stuff.

I somehow could not relate to pityful Honda Jazz ad. It might have lost its ad essence in trying to find its segment. By the by the cactus was depicted to be more meaningful than the car..

Did anyone notice how the Reliance ad is a ripoff on the Safari ad? Right from similar picturisation to the background tune!
