BSNL hires the worst possible (un)creative minds for making their ads. Period.

I like the new Bajaj Pulsar 220 DTS-i advert. Very well made and absolutely fantastic background score.

You managed to spot Yuvi in that ad?

The ad's visuals are weird. Neither Yuvi nor the car is shown properly. The car is a bloody looker, the least they could have done was to show it from different angles and wow the viewers. No features about the car either. But yes, the stuff that the voice over says about listening to your heart for once and taking your own decision is fantastic.

PS: Doesn't it feel like they are targetting the safe Maruti and Hyundai buyers? (Jo dekha parkha usi ko chuno....)

All the ads of govt run companies leave bad impression of their sorry state of affairs. Only a handful stand out. It is not about lack of talent but with the bureaucratic hierarchy & too many uncreative idiots who sit along the pipeline blocking the creative juice. Too pathetic to be sorry

Actually, I quite like the tune of the ad. Reminds me of the early days of HUTCH when thay had rock 'n roll songs as their jingles.

Second that!

I kept thinking it was actually him.

Orient PSPO ads are just plain stupid that i find them hilarious. I think the newer one is more ridiculously stupid, but I cant seem to find a link for it. But enjoy this one anyways.

the things that they make celebrities do...

Liked the Yamaha Fazer ad and nice to see that everyone is wearing a helmet. And no show-off or stunts but just plain touring.

Saw SRK for the IIPM advert. I don't know what he is doing there. Like there are going to be more enrollments since he is endorsing for them!

My favourites are/were

1. Pulsar 220 Dtsi. Just love the whole ad with that catchy tune, the expressions the way the fastest indian bike is shown looks very good.

2. Fiat Linea and Punto- Kid dragging away hisdad looked very very cute. this ads gone and Punto has come in
For Punto, what the voice speaks makes sense (sab ne kaha jo dekha parkha usi ko chuno par kabhi apne dil ki bhi suno, auro ki sunane me puri umar na nikal jae)

3. Vodafone ads (zoo zoo and pugs)- all zoo zoo ads were too good, love the pug ads.

Ads i hate :

1. Honda jazz- Dont know whether to hate it or not, the ad doesnt make sense to me the song - dum dum something something.. aghh Honda city ads were all good, what happened to Jazz

2. Verna ad , i was laughing at that ad. Too silly. Park warheads and put some missiles in front bumper so the Verna blows away each car on road ahead to unleash its 110 bhp.

3. Chlormint, they really deserve to be thrown off the airplane for making such a yuck ad.

Thumbs up

+1. I like the Jazz ad too - nice peppy tune, nice concept emphasizing on spaciousness and drivability (unlike some celebrity sitting in the car & grinning ). Best part is when bubbles of other cars bursts

Don't think the Jazz ad is good. Conveys nothing to me at all.
