It's been a while since I bitched/ranted (yes, those words imply opposite meanings for me) about an ad or a campaign. So here we are, with possibly the single most often run ad on TV currently: DLF IPL.
The ad is so magnificently bad, I'm not even going to get into the asininity of the carpet running across what I presume is intended to be the four corners of the country. I'm not even going to say anything about the sheer fucking randomness of the carpet travelling all over the country and ending at one stadium where suddenly the team Captains appear with children waving their flags. I will ask just one question.
Why did the carpet lead from the Himalayas to a stadium, and if it did, did those poor kids have to run the entire length of it?
Fine, so that's technically two questions. Whatever.
And while we're talking ads, Have you seen these?
Update (08/03/2010): It's not even a friggin' original idea.
