UTV TV Ads Are Misleading At Best

I was watching TV tonight and the Advert for UTV Broadband came on. Now this is advertising a broadband service. Except it wasn’t. In fact not even close. You see each person in the ad was getting a BSOD, blue screen of death, and one of the promises was for a better computer experience. How can the broadband service possibly offer this? The BSOD is usually caused by something like a badly written driver doing something it isn’t meant to do and therefore crashing the OS. Unless of course every crash is caused by other broadband providers, which is highly unlikely since any BSOD I’ve had comes from nVidia drivers and I don’t have UTV.

It seems to me that the UTV ads are about as believable as the Apple ads and that’s saying something.
