Default Surely the worst one!

The ad for the new Tata Indica Turbo is surely the worst one I have seen - not just for cars, but for all ads put together.

The car ruins a perfectly calm day for an old gentleman gone out fishing (with good background music I might add) -- then what follows is a riot of din and noise and what passes by is this violently shaking car - I guess that is what the manufacturer is promoting - a noisy, violently shaking car to ruin a perfect weekend fishing trip - would you buy such a car?

I have always liked the Bajaj ads. The recent ones are the the "Feel like God" Avenger ad and the "Start Walking" balck pulsar ad. I quite like the bluesy song on the start walking ad. The visuals though are not something to write home about.

The Toyota Innova Aamir khan ads is also nice.

As for the worse nothing comes close to "Santro wale hain".

Havent seen it on TV recently, but they sent the full 1 minute version, with the helmet part.

The airtime costs are huge, so ad's do get cut

As someone mentioned earlier, one of my fav ads too are for the Safari... 'there is enough wildlife in the city' does somebody know what soundtrack was used in it? Even the new one 'Reclaim your life' is good.

3. Aveo - Fantastic, mindblowing crap.

4. Xeta - Dumb, dumb, dumb.

5. Accent - "Respect comes naturally" - that stupid ad with the doorman at the hotel who doesn't get up for any of the guests except for the guy who comes in an Accent. I know Accent owners who actually felt embarassed by the ad.
absolutely.....the idea for the xeta ad is plagiarised from the Jim Carrey & Jeff Daniels movie "Dumb, Dumb & Dumber"....three hoots to plagiarism

And to those who dont like the Skoda ad: I really dont see ur problem. On the contrary, I feel like buying a Skoda right now.
agreed ranjan...but we are discussing the worst car ads, not the worst cars & anyone here in india would buy a skoda with or without their stupid ads...i hope u know what car is the skoda...being in canada & all that
