What an advertisement. Crisp & bold. Just what Jeep stands for.

I am not sure if this is the right place. Just watched the ad on Alexa losing her voice aired in Superbowl 2018. One helluva superb ad. The icing was Hanibal Lecter responding to a query. Simply amazing

I somehow don't like both of these new Coca Cola ads.





And the number of times they appear durimg the IPL makes it more irritating.

Brilliant! Thanks for sharing this. Pretty much sums up what the Jeep name stands for, and does it in style. Except for any damages which may have incurred (if at all) on the vehicle, this would have been a relatively inexpensive ad to create as well, while generating maximum impact.

My wife pointed it to me & since then I am also trying to get my head around it.

The new RANBIR KAPOOR- - RENAULT CAPTUR advt.
He steps out of some place & gets into CAPTUR & then just randomly drives over different terrains. No highlights mentioned; no shots of interiors; close ups of good points/creases etc.

The safety DISCLAIMER is further irritating - why can they simply put a claim that PLEASE DON'T BUY THIS CAR

Regards-Sonu
P.S.: Wifey gets doe eyed on mention of RK so hearing about him was a 'pleasant' surprise for me.

I saw the new Mahindra XUV 5OO advertisement on TV. It shows the XUV 5OO jumping out of a moving train into a desert chased by horsemen somewhere in Mongolia. It looks so cheesy and cheap where the ad is trying to imitate train robbery scenes of the western movies.

Do these car companies think that the consumers are so stupid. What a nonsense ad. Surely one of the worst ads by team Mahindra.

Had to be anime, as they could never find a waterfall to drive up to in our cities.

Who in the right minds would think that this is an acceptable commercial?

This is the new TV advert for the Bajaj discover. This advert just basically promotes petty theft! The man was a petty thief in his childhood and still keeps stealing from someone who can barely make ends meet, even though he is a grown up and able to afford a brand new Discover! I understand that the tagline is to always be the person you were in your childhood, but thieving shouldn't be carried over to your adult life!

This is one of the silliest adverts I have ever seen!

While the ad may be silly - most of the ads are silly anyways - it surely does not portray "petty thief", "petty theft", "stealing", "thieving", and the likes.

It definitely does not encourage theft, at least I did not get that message from this ad.

And, gone are the days when the hawkers did not meet their ends. They have got multiple ends now, and they meet all of them.
