Sometime back, I had wondered if Indian brands will take to web-only TV ads. It’s quite common abroad with brands like Bud Light, Philips, Cadbury and several others creating ads meant for YouTube and other video sharing channels. They take a life of their own with view counts running into millions.

Not all the commercials are equally funny but I think IPL fans will find several of them amusing. What’s more, there are zillions of ads over there and should provide for hours of time pass. I haven’t seen them on TV, so I am guessing this is a web-only effort. That also explains the liberal dose of bleeped out expletives.
Interesting use of online media – proof that web is turning out to be a serious option for certain categories in India? What say?
