@GTO, that Armada ad looks like something out of my cousin's 80s comic collection.

This is an awesome thread. Next visit home will scour through old Reader's Digest and see if anything interesting comes up!

Does anyone have the video of the launch advert of the new shape Maruti 800? They used a rare shade of blue for the M800 in that ad which was hardly ever seen on the street. That is one great memory from my teens- would be great to see it again.

BTW, the M800 adverts posted sometime ago here are much more recent and hence don't apply to this thread.

Anyone remember ad of Tata Estate? Roshan Seth talks about this car, it's features, luxury etc. in typical British accent English and at the end of ad he put on his cap and says "i would love to explain it further but Kya kare ab duty pe jana hai" and opens the door for the owner LOL.

He will also say "it comes with the job" at the beginning, making us believe he is a top executive!

Hero Puch ads



Do not recall seeing this, nice ad though (Was not aired in India?)



And the Caliber ad, which set my pulse racing as a kid

Default Re: The Classic Advertisement/Brochure Thread.

This advert was in the Times of India, 15th August 1997, 50th independence anniversary issue.

One of the first truly modern cars available in India, a bit pricey, but when competition came in they slumped and abandoned their customers.

Guys, If any one happen to have this Video of Suzuki Shogun "The BOSS", please post it. It was an awesome ad..
is this what you were looking for?



Two pages ad of the same.

I still remember an ad for a scooter. The ad is about how bike-like the sound is. It goes like this ...

A bunch of bikers on choppers are on road and stop for a bathroom break. Among them is a blind pillion-rider. Also stopping for a break is a young couple on a scooter. While the young man is waiting for his girl, the blind man comes back and thinks the scooter is his bike (by the way the engine sounds) and gets on the scooter. What happens next is anyone guess.

Anyone has this video by any chance? I just can't recollect what make the scooter was :(
