Chip Shot: I did a push up today! Well, actually I fell down, but I had to use my arms to get back up so … close enough.

 

 

People wonder why the TSA always wants to check Dale’s carry-on.

 

The Cleaning People Hate Santa’s Elves

 

  

This is actually a pretty clever and entertaining ad for a very complex product … which is the point when a company asks Santa’s elves to use their magic dust to make digital transformation happen. Luckily, Dell Technologies can solve the problem.

Entertaining Twist with Humorous Ad

 

I love ads that tell a funny story … and if you can guess what this ad is promoting before the last 10 seconds, you’re smarter than me. It’s a little long, but worth it.

Clever Marketing … or Marketing Miscue? You Decide

 

 

“I’ll have what she’s having.” I have no idea what this van is promoting … but the lines from Harry Met Sally are still funny.

 

 

 

“Do you get a free bowl of soup with that hat?” No, but you do get a bottle of vodka.

Chip Shot: It’s always funny until someone gets hurt … then it’s hilarious.

 

 

 

Talking Testicles Say Goodbye to Their Close Friends

 

 

This South African testicular cancer ad features talking testicles.

We All Have a Little Plumber in Us

 

This funny new ad for Liquid Plumber demonstrates that “there’s a plumber in all of us.”

Products We Don’t Need

 

Van Holten’s is now selling PICKLE POPSICLES. That’s popsicles made from frozen pickle juice. I think I’ll take a pass.

 

I don’t know where this is sold, or what’s in it. But I do know, I’m not going to eat it.

Chip Shot: If you’re over 50 it’s no longer called “masturbation.” It’s called a “systems check.”

 

Designated Texters are Hilarious in These Ads

 

Dad becomes an efficient designated texter for his daughter in this very funny ad for Chevrolet.

  

Dad’s designated texter wishes he hadn’t seen mom’s reply in this funny ad for Chevrolet.

Moving Ad

 

I’m not sure what the sign on the back of this truck is advertising … but it got my attention.

Marketing Miscues

 

 

 

Dating Sites You’ll Wish Didn’t Exist

 

 

 

 

 

 

I thought golf was the cause of a lot of divorces?

 

 

How are Amish suppose to see this site?

 

 

 

I cropped out photos of people looking for love on this site ... you should thank me.

Chip Shot: I just got 15 minutes of cardio by trying to pick up an ice cube from the kitchen floor.

Johnny T’s New Series “Don’t be a Dummy!”

 

 

Okay here’s the first installment of Johnny T’s new “Don’t be a Dummy!” series. This 1 minute edition is titled, “Don't Google Your Illness.”

Outdoor Advertising That Caught My Glass Eye

 

 

 
(I included this one for our buddy, Matt.)

Vintage Ad

 

Today's Models

 

I have no idea why fashion magazines and beauty products continue to use models who have unrealistic (and unattractive) body types. The model in this Givenchy ad, like the flamingo she’s holding, must stand on one leg to conserve body heat.
