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.

Chip Shot: I ordered a Fit Bit and my bank called to see if my credit card had been stolen.

 

 

 

Who Knew Killing a Grandma Could be so Funny?

 

 

Why does someone keep killing this poor grandma? You’ll find out at the end of this bizarre commercial from Buenos Aires … and you’ll laugh while getting there.

 Swear Like a Mother … Funny

 

Seventy-four percent of moms admit to swearing in front of their kids. In this funny ad for Kraft, author and swearing expert, Melissa Mohr, Ph.D., suggessts some kid-friendly alterna-swears for moms everywhere to make things right. And if they don’t, there’s always Kraft Mac & Cheese. (Thanks to blog-follower BJ for alerting me to this.)

Marketing … It’s all in the Name

 

The copy for this condom ad says, “Climax Delay.” A little too subtle?

 

This Should Not be a Product

 

 

 

Vintage Vibrating Ads

 

 

 

Yeah. Gum massager … that’s what the Vibra-Finger was used for. I guess it’s better than using a vibrating toe.

 

  “For satisfying relaxation.” I don’t think so.
