Chip Shot: I’m actually not funny. I’m just mean and people think I’m joking.

Chip Shot: All zoos are petting zoos if you’re drunk enough.

 

Paper Still Has a Great Future

 

 

This ad demonstrates the importance of paper … even to geeks.

Success Has Two Sides

Mercedes-Benz introduced this new ad featuring both Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg to deomstrate the benefits of Plug-In Hybrid technology. Both the C 350 e and the MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS Team’s current F1 cars embody the headline “Success has two sides. More electricity. Less fuel.” The campaign is supposed to show how Mercedes-Benz brings innovative hybrid technology from the race track to the street. I just like the idea that the two fierce competitors are in the same ad.

Vintage Ads

“Sack O’ Sauce”????

 

Guests? Just toss in another frozen TV dinner. “Oh you shouldn’t have gone to so much trouble!”

 

This is one of the few print ads featuring a ventriloquist that I don’t have in my collection.

 

(I don’t get it either.)

Chip Shot: When I get naked in the bathroom, the shower gets turned on.

When the Kids Won’t Just Shut UP!

 

This is a couple of year’s old … but “Nap Time” is still really funny!

Vintage Ads

 

“Bend Over Collection” … seriously?

 

 

I’m betting that Pamela Anderson would be very upset with this ad.

 

 

Remember when cereal marketing included putting cool toys inside the boxes? This “Atom Sub” that went up and down in the water via baking soda, was one of Dale’s all-time favorites.
