Angry The BEST & WORST Advertisements on TV

I know I'm not going to be very popular around here for saying this but.. I HATE THE NEW COCA COLA AD with ASH in it.
I mean come on.. first its the Indica Xeta ad.. which has been discussed to DEATH in another thread here so I'm not going to comment on that.. and now we have the coke ad, with Ash making sounds that are more becoming of a sadak chaap romeo(bombay saying ppl... figure it out).
Are our ad film maker's loosing their originality.. or do they just think that we as the viewing public are going to buy no matter how they want to sell it to us?
Oh and one more come's to mind.. another Cola ad.. the Thums Up ad with Akshaye Kumar jumping an electric fence on an ATV in search of a drink and finally being given it by a bolt of lightning on top of a damn LIGHTHOUSE...as my favorite cartoon character HOMER SIMPSON would say.. DOOOOH!!!

Those who find these ads irritating are not going to be influenced by ads.
Those who get influenced by these ads like such crappy ads.

And there are lots of idiots in this country who like such ads.

What about radio ads?
I mean its like some 20 mins of music and then 10 min of the RJ talking and half an hour of ads and its frustrating hearing those ads and builds up road rage.
Sorry for it being OT.

and what about that unexciting advt of TVS Apache?!
nice looking bike, but not so nice promotion!

why can't they show some advt of car, showing it doing slaloms and elks on track to show the capabilities of the car?!
or similar to-the-point advts?

remember the opel corsa ad?
in which a bunch of kids in rear seat of corsa going over rumble-strips, shouting "AAAAAAAA......" without any turbulence!
really nice!

but such good ads are a rarity now.

Worst adds according to me:-
Chevrolet Aveo (really mind fodu)
Ford Fiesta (what should we go fida over Abhishek or the car??)
Pepsi TV (I still am not getting that channel in my TV!!)
Coca Cola (I tried, but couldnt whistle like Ash)
Thumps Up! (Very action packed,and nice to know how its made! from thunder offcousre.)
And Many more........

I like sprite adds,it shows whats real,
Like the one where they make fool of Pepsi TV.

Yes, too much rubbish advertisments in TV lately. I especially hate the Thums Up ad, it has to be the most retarded advertisement in recent days.


We should have more stuff like that Mentos ad.
