Chip Shot: I love long walks on the beach with my girlfriend, until the LSD wears off and I realize I’m just dragging a stolen mannequin around a Wendy’s parking lot.

 

Melbourne International Comedy Festival Ad

 

 

This practical joke doesn’t really work out for the guy. But it’s pretty funny.

It’s Better When It’s French

This ad for Hardee’s shows why “it’s better when it’s French.”

Now You Can Wear a Whopper

Burger King Japan is making a 'Flame-Grilled' fragrance, including seductive perfume ads to go with it.

This scent of meat, empty calories and shame will go on sale on 'Whopper Day', which is a thing in Japan, apparently, and just happens to be April 1. Oh. Cute. Can I buy this or not? I have no idea.

Anti-Sexual Harassment Ads

Here are two ads from two different countries, supporting similar anti-harassment messages. Both grab attention and get their message across.

Opposite Example from the Ads Above

Apparently Nebraska didn’t get the message.

Bert’s New Anthem is B-A-N-A-N-A-S

THIS IS TEST 

Just because this made me smile. (NSFW because of language.)

Miscellaneous Marketing

Best Tampax ad ever.

… Endless Beer

“Sitting on faces since 2004”

 

 

 

I don’t think it would taste as good with a condom on it … just saying.

Chip Shot: I have team “I Don’t Care” beating the “University of Who Gives a @#$%” in my bracket.

 

Vintage Pinup from Milwaukee Women’s Store

 

 

 

Anyone around Milwaukee ever heard of The House of Jerine?

 

Vintage Ads

 

 

 

… not that there’s anything wrong with that.

 

 

 

A little surprising that this ad for the “anatomically correct” doll, “Gay Bob” is from the 70’s.

 

 

 

At $69.95 this doll had better be able to cook.

Chip Shot: The human brain functions 24/7 from the time we were born and only stops when we take a test or talk to someone attractive.

The Golden Sisters Offer Up Some Funny Ads for the Passat TDI

"Old Wives Tales," a new campaign for the Passat TDI features the Golden Sisters, who rose to fame with their salty commentary on Kim Kardashian's sex tape back in 2012. In this funny ad, the trio are riding around in a VW, sounding off on diesel cars—and getting it comically wrong.

Here’s another one.

ALDI … Hits Dracula in the Head with a Ball

ALDI says it carries products that are like name brands, only cheaper. And what better way to depict that than with a pale-white Dracula getting some sun on the beach, and then hitting him in the head with a ball?

No One Wants to See This …

A new PSA from the Colon Cancer Foundation comically shows some butt cracks on public buses and benches along with the message. “No One Wants to See This … except for your doctor.” Colon cancer is the second most deadly cancer. Get checked.

Even the Batmobile Needs Gas

NASCAR’s Joey Logano was channeling his inner Bruce Wayne out in Los Angeles last Tuesday -- cruising around the City of Angels in a Batmobile that is owned by Jeff Dunham. The Batmobile is from the Michael Keaton era. But even the Batmobile needs gas; so the two superstars got quite a bit of attention when they pulled in to a Shell station to top off.
