well, for starters i like the AXE advert for AXE: Dark Temptation. it's kinda funny with the chocolate dude walking around letting chicks eat him. i like that permanent smile he has all the time. though i have never even seen one, my sources tell me that the deo SUCKS! apparently, it doesn't smell like chocolate, but COFFEE! the guy had cold when he told me this. i'd trust him.

Oh I loved that AXE ad. Unfortunately some idiot women with too much time on their hands got offended and called for a ban.. but I think the ban was removed since.. don't remember.

I loved the Hutch pug one's.. The Zoozoo's, well I loved the idea, and the initial one's were good, but then they overdid it, IMO.

WTF? these people give feminists a bad name... not that im a fan of theirs or something Razz

true, true. the pug was cute and all. i even got the song "You and I" when the advert first hit the TV.
zoo zoo's are ok. they got crappy after some time, i agree. but they were pretty original an idea. i mean, it took me a lot of time to believe that it was NOT animation. my favorite is the one with the crocodile/alligator and shocking news.


i saw this advert for Parachute Jasmine and damn that song is stuck in my head! the girl in it is pretty good looking too. it's really funny with the hiccups in the chemistry lab, on stage, karate class. i kinda like it a lot.

I like the ACT II ad.not the Rahul ke papa one.The simpler one which goes:
You know why companies make ads?So that you can go and make yourself a bowl of popcorn whtout missing your favorite show.Honest.

yeah the ACT II ad is good. not too flashy but good. i like that.

does anybody know that name of the AXE DARK TEMPTATION song in the advert?
i'd very much like to get it.


i saw this PULSAR ad with the "I'm the MAN!" song. pretty good. they made it out like it was a bank robbery(kinda spaghetti western. very slightly) and then this VERY indian bike in the middle. the guy looks totally MORONIC! but the advert as a whole is pretty good. i'd wanna get the "I'm The Man" song too. gets in your head.

AXE- The subway sandwich waitress ad.
Mostly because the Subway Sandwich Waitress looks HAWT!!!!

ZooZoo's were decent enough, but the repetition kinda killed it, IMO...

The Horlicks active ad is the silliest one yet. It states that more than 50% of people lack vital nutrients, and the study concludes that Horlicks is the best food to combat this...With the banner on screen proclaiming that the study was conducted by a research facility called 'Horlicks labs'...

Hmm...I wonder why I'm not convinced of their impartiality..

AMEN!
i was just going to post the same thing! DAMN!
she looks a bit chinky and all but god is she pretty. im in LOVE!!!!
whenever that ad is on, i don't let anybody change the channel. NOT EVEN MY EX-GIRLFRIEND! the chick from the library and the red car just don't cut it. i want the hot sandwitch lady! i would like a sandwitch too if it isn't too much to ask.
i think what AXE is doing is that they put the same adverts with the different models according to region. i mean, what we get is the asian version adverts. i saw this middle east version with the VERY SAME theme; guy walks into the shop, chick makes sandwitch for him but writes her number in ketchup. but this time they had this lousy malnutritioned model for the sandwitch lady. and she doesn't even get the expression right. SACRILIGE!

Arr0wHeaD wrote:....It states that more than 50% of people lack vital nutrients, and the study concludes that Horlicks is the best food to combat this...

actually, the dr.dude-guy first says that people lack micro-nutrients. and then he fails to mention that Horlicks replenishing the daily requirement of micro-nutrients in the ad. i did a wiki-search on micronutrients and found out that it's pretty important but if you have a proper meal you get it nice and sassy. i mean if a guy can afford to buy horlicks there's a good chance he's having an OK meal and he gets it nice and super sassy.
and yeah the HORLICKS LAB was kinda gay too.

Ay! Don't be saying 'chinky', dude...You gotta looove them azns!

On a more coherent note, She's a malaysian model named Asmirandah. It took me a whole lotta effort to find that info, so you KNOW that woman looks like a million bucks (Or by the current conversion rate, 120 million rand...)

YAY!!!!

@Arrow: dude, i have this thing on asian people. you see, i just feel "uncomfortable" with asian people around me. either i wanna punch them in he face or stay away from them.it's weird, but it's true. i have the same thing for certain arabs and girls who look younger than their actual age. im being serous here. i can't even look 'em in the eyes. it;s either a punch in the kisser or run away as fast as i can.
this may be the reason why i don't watch many live action Jap movies and JDramas.
there are exceptions though. i like this asian model(actually she's russian) Maria Mogsolova (from F) and... that's it.
oh and btw: "chinky" is a derogatory term?

@Dylan: yeah i loved 2 virgin mobile adverts:
1. tum bahuth filmy ho
2. my granny was hospitalized / i was at the pub

and thanks to you guys, im a stalker now Twisted Evil
you guys are the best. super sexy asian model, here i come!

didn't find that 'chinky' lady hot enough. and since my tv's screwed up since last 4 months, all my ad knowledge is by posters. so i saw this AXE poster once. CALL ME 9987333333. won't ruin the joy here by telling you what it is. out of mumbai guys(i think) might have to add a 0 before the no. and call the no. when you are depressed. Wink
okay, just 1 clue- a sexy voice greets you rendeer
and no, this s no phone sex number! don't worry!

Ookay.

There's more- The Hutch ads with the pug are real good, but I wonder why they used that specific breed. It would have looked good with any breed, even a stray dog...

On the other hand- the Xylo ad, 'time of your life' is annoying and frankly reeks of stock footage simply pasted together with lotsa neon...

'The Fastest Indian' Pulsar 220 ad really gets me. The bank robber guy reminds me of the sidekick from 'Nacho Libre'



How about this, not just ad's you like, talk about ads you find ridiculously annoying.
For example, the americanised version of the aforementioned AxE ad. I saw it on Some malayalam channel the other day, and it SUCKS. I mean, it shows how much difference the actors make, the 'chinky' supermodel whups this white witch's rear end...

She looks HAWT in the ad. But in this link she looks like a frog ._. Honest *_*

The New Compaq ad...

Thug: *comes and pushes this guy and the guy's laptop falls on the ground*
Guy: *sad face* (im translating everything to english for convenience) Brother, my mother has photosynthesis. She's in the hospital....(and he says some shit about money)

Thug: *cranky face* Really? Take this. *gives him some money*

Guy: Brother, this is a laptop, not a typewriter.

Thug: *Gives the guy his wallet*

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Oh man. When he says photosynthesis, I couldn't help laughing out loud!

Original Bingo ads...THE DANCE!!! OMG!! THAT WAS WICKED! I even liked their Flamingo ad. They give the whole documentary on flamingos and say EAT BINGO....or something like that.

Best Ad- The mentos ad.. where the guy fools his prof by getting into the classroom while pretending to move out. That was.. Cool

Worst ad- Has to be the Hamam ad.. where the dumbass mother runs after her daughter imagining exaggerated nonsense just because of a stupid soap.
There are also a lot of other badly made ads. Could only remember hamam at the moment.

yeah that naukri.com ad was pretty good too. i liked the ending bit with the wimpy secretary goes "S for stupid".... or does he? wow, it was pretty long ago, yeah?


anime-guru wrote:Worst ad- Has to be the Hamam ad..
yeah it was pretty dumb. something on a similar line would be the Pears Oil Control advert with a paranoid girl who thinks her boyfriend would ditch her and marry "Sheetal" DUMB AD!


another ad i liked was the "Banana - Czechoslovakia" ad.

But i still can't get that chick from the parachute jasmine ad out of my head. the song's kinda catchy too. i liked the mallu version of the song MUCH MUCH better than the Hindi Version. though i can't find it anywhere in youtube Sad somebody PLEASE gimme that song! ie, the mallu version.

I'M BUSY...IIII'NN A MEEEETIINNNG!!!!!

Yeah, I've seen that one. The person with the most feeling in it is the guy who's "Wooorking out..Just Wooorking out" It's a good ad.

Though Airtel has upped the cute factor on their new "special 5 ads". Instead of one cute kid, they roped in 6 of em now...it's reasonably good too.

BUT- the Winners are-

Bingo!- Their new ad campaign spoofing crappy cooking shows, and the Ad that's "Low Budget" so that they can add 50% chips in the packet. Brilliant stuff.

AND

Munch- Spoofing Dairy Milk's "Pehli Tarik" ads, it says, you don't have to wait for a specific date to eat munch, you can eat it anytime you want. Not great, but I found Dairy Milk's ads annoying...so I welcome spoofs..
