Each time I see this ad, a couple of my sense organs stop sending messages to my brain for a few minutes. There’s certainly no doubt that advertising in India is surely headed down an abyss. But what about corporate management? I wonder who at Airtel approves these ads for broadcast?

What do you think?

Yesterday when I saw this ad, thought this is should be your next post and here it is …

It is really a ridiculous ad-campaign for a brand like Airtel. Many road side vendors will have better ideas for brand building. Agreed SRK does not look beyond his pockets when he endorses a product line. Think about his kids, they would definitely say WTF-IS-THIS-DAD.
