Again, the dots are disconnected in this ad, I can’t understand if the campaigners meant to prove through this ad that performance of herohonda is as strong as 20 bulls..or I can’t understand if they are trying to prove to public to purchase hero honda, so that if there are lot of African bulls in your locality, they would run away seeing your new hero honda?, because Herohonda can win over your female bull to mate and later if thats the only thing, Hero honda would end up killing all other competetors..Exactly wtf mate?

I realize its difficult to make an ad, but when they have around 20 to 30 Seconds, they can make wonders with ad making, it can be a sensible one.

I would really meet those persons who approve such ad’s for marketting campaign..

It was plain ominous.. Reminded me of Yamaraj and stuff.. Ads that are equally negative are ones where on the day of the wedding/day of child birth the guy sinks down;seriously, who make these ads and who approve these ads?

There were a lot of name/logo change ads that had come up recently – While all got the point through – screaming or otherwise – why can’t they think of innovative ways to announce it ??
