Happydent ad does it again!


Happydent's new ad (slaves placed everywhere in a palace; they all start smiling in the evening to flood the palace with light) wins hands down when it comes to creativity. Fevicol ads would probably come a close second.

Here's another (not yet advertised in Indian mags/TV I think):


One Tree Hill

One Tree Hill is a good show. I happened to catch it yesterday on Star World (it's into its third season, but it debuted with its season 2 recently on Star).

Boston Legal is another show I started following recently. Does anyone remember "The Practice" seasons with Dylan McDermott (not the later ones)? BL doesn't impress me as much as The Practice did, but it's still watchable, and somewhat fills in the void.



If you post a sarcastic comment on slashdot, and later find it modded "Insightful".... well, it feels strange. :-|

2 Days. 2 Movies.

1. Ankahee: Great for people not enjoying their insomnia.
2. Da Vinci Code: If you enjoyed the novel, you probably won't enjoy the movie. If you never read the novel, it's no use watching the movie.

Next in yet-to-watch list:
X-Men: The Last Stand

So why did the chicken cross the road...

This is funny. It makes sense too, btw. :)

and it goes...

1. There's an advert for a bike (called 'Apache') which claims the machine has been named the "Bike of the year 2006" by some research. Nice to know how soon 2006 has ended for some people.

2. What do you do when you broadcast a famous movie ("Black") on TV? You show 5-minute long advert breaks for every 10-minutes in the movie. Consistently. Not funny.

3. Finished reading Bunker 13. Nice!

4. There's a new entry in my reading wish-list. Oww...

The Book Quiz ... (another meme) ;-)

You're Catch-22!

by Joseph Heller

Incredibly witty and funny, you have a taste for irony in all that you
see. It seems that life has put you in perpetually untenable situations, and your sense
of humor is all that gets you through them. These experiences have also made you an
ardent pacifist, though you present your message with tongue sewn into cheek. You
could coin a phrase that replaces the word "paradox" for millions of

Orkut says in "Today's Fortune": Your luck has been completely changed today.

Yeah, right. Not that I want it.

What Kind of Elitist Are You?

You are a fountain of endless (sometimes useless) knowledge, and never fail to impress at a party.What people love: You can answer almost any question people ask, and have thus been nicknamed Jeeves.What people hate: You constantly correct their grammar and insult their paperbacks.

Dwitiya not so good...

The Great Indian Laughter Challenge II (Dwitiya) doesn't seem as good as its antecedent. I see most of the performers trying to resurrect oft-told jokes; no new techniques of joke-telling, and no new characters. Yawn.
