guptaanuj Says
Last year somebody called up the adm office and they said that it wont be out before 10th april. but the result was declared that same day i.e. 29th march 2007.....

Ya i too had read something like that in last years thread! April seems to be too too far! :confused:
well there are many ads i hate but the few i can remind of are

1. PEPSI ------ SRK, RANBIR K, Deepika padu, .....shit ad.... youngstaan ...concept ... what is that ..???

2. HeroHOnda HUNK..... i am speechless (i like the bike ) but this ad will certainly have bad effect on sales ......... a guys converts in bull and scares other bulls.

3. VISA ; heart, mind body souls and few singing Assholes.

4. BAJAJ PLATINA ; Jalak dikhla ja song being played ( i hate himesh).

5. Fair and Lovely mens cream : mard hokar ladkiyon wali cream (chup chup k)

ABOVE ALL i hate those 15 mins telebrand ads of AB-KING pro , and crunch machine and blah blah .......

sometime i wonder who are those MBAs to pass/select these ads.
i mean the guys at Herohonda must have seen once b4 selecting that hunk ad. ........... no wonder HH is struggling in premium segment.

I seriously agree with you on the second and the third ones......what has heart mind and body got to do with it and how!!!
