It seems like the ongoing World Cup is more of India vs Rest of the World than individual nations playing against each other because one after another Star Sports is creating quintessentially hilarious mauka mauka ads. First it was India’s world cup opener against Pakistan, second TVC was for the big one India vs. South Africa and the third one was launched ahead of India vs UAE match. However, India has managed to win all the world cup matches and looks pretty strong side to be defeated in the upcoming matches but Star Sports has managed to keep the audience tickling with their uber creative funny mauka mauka ads. Here’s the 4th Mauka Mauka TVC which was released ahead of the India vs West Indies match and believe it or not but the intensity of sarcasm is only increasing one after another epic Mauka Mauka TVC advertisements.

The Mauka Mauka advertisements have been the talk of the season with Star Sports launching series of advertisements one after another. The idea of taking dig on teams which started with Pakistan cricket team who have not been able to win even a single world cup match against India has started off on a commanding situation. The series of Mauka Mauka advertisements started with India Vs Pakistan match which featured a man going frustrated each time he lost the opportunity to burn crackers.

Moving further, the advertisement which revolved around India-South Africa with India being at the other side is another hilarious advertisement. The theme of the advertisement is India being on the losing streak because of their back to back defeats in World Cup against South Africa. The advertisement showcases two guys dressed in South African jersey doing Mauka Mauka and handing over the pile of crackers to Indian fans.

Then came the series of advertisements amongst which one had spoof by Virat Kohli bashing South African fans doing Mauka Mauka and another advertisement which showed India had won the World Cup in 2011. The recent advertisement which revolves around upcoming India vs UAE match shows that now India’s turn is to win the match against UAE.

The Mauka Mauka advertisements have made World Cup 2015 even more fun affair with the #MaukaPeChauka trending everywhere.We are also severely bitten by the World Cup bug just like you fans and went on to compile the series of Mauka Mauka advertisements doing rounds this season:

1. The very first Mauka Mauka advertisement of ICC World Cup 2015: India vs Pakistan

2.  Pakistan replied to the Indians with this hilarious advertisement.

3. Here comes the India Vs South Africa advertisement.

4. India replied to South Africa in style in this India vs South Africa ad.

5. The Virat Kohli’s spoof ad is hilarious, simply hilarious.

6. #MaukePeChauka! is going viral with India vs UAE match approaching.

Advertisements can be funny, advertisements can be creative and then there are some advertisements which we simply cannot resist without watching. These are the popular attention grabbing commercials because every time you watch them you love them even more either because of the melodious jingle or because of the theme of the advertisement. Some of these commercials are so outright funny that they have been banned in prominent countries meaning even if people want to watch those advertisements they cannot (you can consider yourself to be lucky here).

We have compiled some of the leading funny commercials from around the world which are insanely amusing, creative and would prompt you to watch them countless times. Again, if you are tired of watching those old and boring commercials you might just get a new favorite to watch from our collection of best commercials around the world.

1. The uber funny Durex 50 games to play commercial.

The commercial shows why making love is better than talking about love. It is funny to an extent but one of the sexiest ads of this season is a must watch because Durex has the reputation of launching it in their own style.

2. Vulture helps out the man with the data in this funny T-Mobile Commercial.

If you have not had laughter for really long then probably you have a reason to be happy because you will laugh your heart out after watching this advertisement. This advertisement has gone viral within just few days of its launch which features a man carrying a vulture on his shoulder and helping the man out in getting the data.

3.  George Clooney likes to have his Nespresso in Heaven.

George Clooney dies and goes to heaven (only in advertisement) to have his Nespresso Coffee. The commercial features Clooney and a wise man relaxing in a white-couch and talking about heaven. The funniest part about this advertisement is when George Clooney is offered to go back to heaven in exchange for his Nespresso machine.

4. McDonald’s funniest Indian ad which can cure all.

The self-explanatory ad where the sick man’s only cure is McDonald’s is hilariously funny.

5. The Super Funny China Commercial

You will get to know after watching this advertisement why you cannot cheat during exams in China.

There are some really funny commercials which can make you laugh your heart out and then there are some really bad television commercials which will make you laugh or cry either.  The advertisers behind these bad-vertisements either do not know the meaning of creativity or they have intentionally tried to fool themselves.

They are low-budget, they are absolutely non-sense and then they are really bad tv ads.
