Actions Have Consequences


Awkward Design?



I’m sure the person who designed this, no longer works for Disney.


It’s soap, right? Filthy Balls soap? Handmade in Hawaii. I’m confused.


Most realistic Doctor Kit, ever.

Vintage Ads

This is the kind of business casual that Al Getler would wear.  Seriously ... long socks, shorts, ties and short sleeve shirts? Who ever that that was a good look?



We kill ourselves with our mouths?  According to this Metropolitan Life ad, people who eat too much, get fat, and as a result, die prematurely. Actually, it’s a petty effective ad.


This is a new ad for Oral-B. I’m sure the fact that the tooth brushes are in an “unusual” position to each other has nothing to do with the tagline, “Make it Oral” for Valentine’s Day.

Signs That Caught My Glass Eyes







Men Among Men




Okay, I got nothin. This quirky, but pretty darn funny ad was produced by Equal Pay Day to encourage men to reduce the gender pay gap.  I don’t think it accomplishes its goal, but it made me laugh … so it’s got that going for it.
