Selfie Toast …

 

As much as people like taking photos of themselves these days, the Selfie Toaster, $69.95, should prove to be pretty popular.

Office Funding

This is an old, but very funny ad for Bud Light called the swear jar.

Funny Australian Ad for ING Bank

Isla Fisher is going to talk herself through this funny ING Direct spot, no matter what it takes. The Australian actress does the internal monologue gag for the bank, working up the courage to deliver her endorsement on camera. She just has to learn to read.

Unique Car Marketing

The print ad above is from a series of Toyota ads that use photos from actual city streets to emphasize how Toyota comes out ahead in any urban challenge.

Above is a creative street placement for Ford.

Funny Canadian IKEA Ad

This Canadian spot for IKEA has been used by the company in 12 countries and after three years is still running today.

Vintage Ads

 

Apparently in the 60’s a lot of tire manufactures used double entendre in their print ads.

Let’s use a baby to sell cigarettes to mom!

Get All the “Big Ass News” Here

Seriously, there’s a website called “The Big Ass News” which puts today’s headlines on the backsides of women. Click here … probably NSFW.

Western Ventriloquist

You have to be pretty old to remember Max Terhune and his Mannequin American sidekick, Elmer.  Max and Elmer appeared in nearly 70 movies. Elmer now resides at Vent Haven Museum.
