Sometimes commercials are actually worth watching. Sometimes, they're truly heart-warming, breath-taking even. And sometimes, they touch the core of what is beautiful about our society, culture, history, lives and humanity.
And the Doordarshan brand of ads from the 1980s and 1990s are great at, well, simply being iconic: Some of them introduced jingles that we couldn't help but sing along to, while others brought a tear to our eyes, every single time.
Indeed, those days are over. But we would happily sit through those iconic TV commercials which came out when TV -- as we know it today -- was just starting out.
The list we put together is a treat to watch -- partly for the glimpse of life during another era, but mostly because these ads still managed to make us smile, no matter how cheesy or dated they seem. If only we could still see some of them on TV.
You would agree that most of these are pretty darn cool!
