Few worst ads of recent times

Few ads which make me scream WTF from the moment the air.
1. JK Super Cement: Seriously guys what is it? A girl in one piece bikini walks out of pool and the voice over says "Vishwas hai, isme kuch khaas hai" Is there some sort of pun which I am not getting because this bikini girl and cement are in no way related, or this ad was intended to be for JK's Super Semen instead?


2. Imagine you are going out of station for few days, and your good friend doesn't forget to mention that "dude you might die". In olden times we just used to say "have a safe journey." By the way the "good" friend seemed more interested in his wishes-to-be-dead friend's wife. Also who in the world says these lines "Yaar sir jhuka ke kyo baitha hai, sir utha ke ji".


3. This one is supposed to be funny, new age commercial. Instead it comes out to be corny and cheap somehow. Boy visiting a girl's "farm" and she impressing her with her "melons", seriously that's the best you could come up for a gaming site?


4.This ad featuring Delhi daredevils is so unintentionally funny that I couldn't stop myself from laughing every time I see it. Credit to Viru who tried to act his skin out. "Tune to zindagi ki baazi maar li" :)



There are couple more, one in which Fardeen Khan nearly gave his dad a lap dance for Pan Bahar(sadly its not on Youtube anymore) and other being a jet pilot trusting his fighter jet in the sky and somehow relates it to the mobile he uses.
I believe these are not the only ones, add more and if you can't find any, IPL is round the corner, trust it to fetch some really annoying commercials for you.

Edit: The mobile-jet ad is for Lemon mobile. Finally saw the full version. Interestingly the guy first compares the cell to his girlfriend and then to jet. Is there something I am missing? (Link thanks to Abhinav)

  8. Jetking ad is actually one ad in recent times that has made me laugh so hard and JK cement ad is such a super product that even if every website posts abot it, still will not do justice
