The music is given by ram sampat ......... ive been searching all over to get that sound clip from some where or the other . And guess who is driving the safari in the add .................................................. ......................Our very own VIKRAM MATHAIS ! I love the part when the dicor looses its tail in the add . HATS OFF TO THE DIRECTOR !!

Personally I liked the old Safari ads more than the Dicor ones which are a bit abstract and 'dark'. Really liked the 'Make your own road' series, especially the one where the Parrot is shown imitating engine revvs in the jungle. Great music, too - especially in the ad that shows the (old) Safari ploughing thru the water.

Saw a new Chevy SUV ad in the UAE which is a direct lift from the Petrol Safari ad that shows a couple of guys being bored to death on a roller-coaster (how appropriate) and screaming their guts off in their car later.

The Safari Make ur own road where there was a surprise element at the end (girl asks for lift, guy thinks, then agrees with a smile - girl bends to pick up ... camera pans out and music picks up tempo and volume .... her canoe! Rber this ? There was also this one where Sumo lugging a train of trailers behind it...and u thought throughout the ad it was a train that was.

IMHO i think Alto lets go ad and optra old (the 1st optra ad) are the best of of those mentioned above. If you see thse ads they show almost all the features of the cars unlike the new ads which focus on relationships.

Also you must include the TATA pickup ad the rockly one.. That ad is also gr8 and shows that that pickup truck meets everyneeds.

My $0.2.

The Octi ad's just great...very natural.The Optra's got that homely feeling in its ad...with the singing and stuff. In the Safari ad, I somehow feel they show the car Over-steering..very bad publicity.
