Disclaimer: This not a car ad, but a bike ad. Still! This ad gave me goosebumps.


IMHO, it's one of the best ever. This ad (like the bike and the theme of the ad) was quite ahead of its time. I think this was the first bajaj pulsar 220 commercial. The soundtrack was based on the original bajaj chetak commercial.

The two advertisements tell it all. That the Chinese use an existing idea, cut/copy, paste and modernise things for their commercial gains :

I really liked this Nexa ad. It's a copy of some international 'inspire' ads, but a good one nevertheless:

That ad is brilliant! In fact, looking at the ads now running for anniversary celebrations, I was wondering why the 'human' touch was missing?



Also, see this video, you'll understand the difference -



There were days on which I used to feel like driving 'away' from the office instead of 'towards' office - the guys who made the ad seemed to have read my mind!

the "Reclaim your Life" ad series is a landmark in the wold of automotive advertising. Seldom has an ad tugged at the heartstrings more, despite the fact that the product it was showcasing had some significant shortcomings. Seeing naren Kumar drift a safari dicor prompted me to actually go and test drive one, which I promptly ended up buying.

I still remember my wife's aghast expression when I pulled up in a gleaming black Dicor- she said, why did you not buy an Innova? my answer- "Because I want to Reclaim my Life!"....Hell Yeah!

Thanks for sharing! They worked out the emotional connection so well, but in a very subtle way. Very classy indeed!
