Marketing Madness!

Not quite mainstream marketing, awesome ads in unlikely places!

A new and crative (and a little bit creepy) way to advertise pasta.

A conditioner ad in Bangkok.

Awesome, but what the hell does it have to do with Fedex Kinko's?

Apparently Folgers wants you to look at sewer covers and want coffee...?

I applaud Nationwide Insurance and Coops Paints on an ad well collaborated!

Amusing Mini Cooper(s suck) ad in Zurich, Switzerland.

This ad was placed in a swimming pool in India by Ogilvy & Mather Mumbai ad agency . The ad is for HSBC, and intended to raise awareness of global warming.

Ad for a job recruiting company in Berlin, Germany.

Knife company, of course.

Oh dear

In a coffee house in Japan. If its all the same to you, when I get around to trying skiing i'll do it standing, and with my pants up.

ESPN. "Soccer is good everywhere, but it is much better on ESPN channels."

Natan Jewelry Shop, Sao Paulo, Brazil.

Axe ("Turn the nice girls dirty.") placed these stickers in mens bathrooms in Monevideo, Uruguay.

Mini Cooper ad.

Terrible Tattoos

What can I say besides, these tattoos (along with their wearers and artists) FAIL!

Its painfully obvious that this was not drawn out ahead of time.

Im guessing the intended design would have looked pretty stupid too

This is my panther, I call him Mr. Squishy.




Stay very still... it's the rare one eyed pig cobra!!!

Say no to crack! And little badly done cupids

Head=fine, body=fail!

Priceless Misplacements

Here I have compiled an awesome assortment of ad placements gone wrong. Unfortunate, unusual, suggestive or just plain funny, its time for priceless misplacements! (sorry for any picture repeated from other posts!)

Mmm, yummy trashcan!

The ad says "If you don't have GIO Third Party property insurance , we suggest you don't hit this bus"

Kitty wants a hug... This looks like a job for.... GIANT EXTRA OBNOXIOUS JESUS MURAL!

John you see this? Id say you should cut back but then you'd just be miserable >.< First I thought of you, and then immediately realized that your probly sitting outside starbucks as im typing this O_o (3:59pm)

This one is for Krys and Barry<3 style="width: 425px; height: 406px;" src="">

The article on this german newspaper deals with the suffering of the gypsies in the nazi concentration camps like Auschwitz where thousands of them were murdered with poison gas. The unfortunate ad promotes natural gas ("Eon provides the gas for tomorrow already today").
