Recipe for disaster Part 2 - Micromax

There are a lot more ads out there that Micromax has come up with, jarring people's emotions and nerves,toeing the line between totally being written off and making people notice their product.

Case in point - One does not easily get rid of Akshay Kumar's annoying laughter, but the ad literally burns itself in the brain, and the imagery of him playing virtual destructive tennis in the kitchen unwittingly comes up when you think of gaming and mobiles in the same context.

One of their ad, that is their best till date, would be the one that targets women(demographic -25-40 something)

Recipe for disaster - Part 1 : Micromax

The theme for Micromax mobiles seems to be disaster....the ads end up in someone dying or getting seriously hurt.
The ads range from making you feel very irritated - Akshay Kumar laughing continuously in an extremely annoying manner for 40 seconds while he destroys an entire kitchen ; a little uncomfortable - boy gets bumped off by car; very uncomfortable - boy unknowingly shoves a baby down the escalator.
