Remembering the Indian TV ads...

Like it or loathe it, advertisements play an integral part in every medium. Be it radio, TV, newspapers or magazines...advertisements have to be there. You need no high IQ to realize that every medium thrives on the revenue generated by ads. Today, I am going to enlist some of my favorite current and old classic TV ads that have remained my all-time favorites since I started watching TV. So watch the videos and enjoy!!!




(I just used to love that granny...a jolly good old lady and I would imitate her everytime after watching the ad)



(Justloved it for no apparent reason...it's just that the ad still remains fresh in my mind)



(I guess no one could capture the true picture of India and it's psyche the way Bajaj did)



(The old couple looked so cute...I especially liked the scene where the granny blushes when her abhi toh main jawaan hoon husband gifts her the diamond ring)



(Very witty...How I wish I could come up with such concepts)



(This ad captures the essence of one of India's recent revolution...the white revolution, just love the rustic feel of the song)



(This is my recent fav ad)




(good way of catching fishes naa?? Loved the expression of both the characters)



(I am still a complan girl :))



(Simply cute...I still say jalebee the way this kid does)


Note: Soon to come...my fav hoardings and print ads...

The bajaj ad rocks!.. do you remem the ad in which the guy gifts a puppy to his girlfriend to only discover that she was married by then. he later gifts it to the kid....I believe that's one of the best ads!.. infact bajaj people are very smart in making ads..many of their ads were big hits..
