ooh! I can imagine the protests by our "moral police" and tarnishing of our cultured heritage.

the vandalising of ST buses, the breaking of shop windows, the molesting of peaceful citizens.


Nope. This ad will not come to India.

Trust BMW to come up with a campaign like this. Very Very tongue in cheek. But, also very humorously apt.

India? No way. Imagine BMW already haven damaged Indian ethics by making its citizens shamelessly splurging (GOSH! How can even think on buying a vehicle upwards of 30L when half the nation is hungry!!!)

Shame! BMW, Shame!

Absolutely brilliant!
You can never be too sure about India. You never know, one fine day they might come out this very same ad. At worst they'll be forced to withdraw and may be tender an apology. But that would have already given them the required publicity

Wicked ad, fits in with BMW's image. Could never imagine Mercedes releasing such an ad. For those who are interested in seeing some more interesting BMW (and Audi) ads, click here (Brilliant Ad-War)

Very unlikely they'll release this here. (Who started this thought in first?) BMW in India has already collected some profane rage of news channels for that accident labelled "Delhi BMW Accident Kand". :P
