I have been seeing a lot of these LAP BAND billboards popping up around town and I have to say this is by far the STUPIDEST one I have seen.  Attempting to promote the weight loss surgery, they use this billboard as an eff you to dieting.  How wrong does it seem that advertisers are trying to show all the obese people in America that instead of changing your lifestyle and loosing weight the right way, they should just get this surgery and all of their problems will disappear— Yeah right!  The message is confusing, the cause is wrong, and the ad itself is tacky.  You SUCK!

Separately these two elements mean well.  But joined together they create the best example of ‘YOUR AN IDIOT’ for poor Yahoo!  It truly boggles my mind when stuff like this happens.  Clearly Folgers didn’t want to have their ad up next to an article saying how coffee can contribute to your first heart attack, SO WHAT IS THE DEAL?  Forget about the risk of heart attack, the person who let this happen really needs to increase their caffeine intake in order to ensure optimum alertness.

As an attempt to bring attention to human trafficking, this advertiser decided to put a woman in a view through suitcase and let her go round and round the luggage carousel at an airport.  As if seeing someone inside a suitcase isn’t freaky enough, her facial expression is terrifying. A sure way to catch someone’s eye, and then cause them to quickly look away.  This advertising failure has its heart in the right place, but really? I give two thumbs down for the freaky chick in a box.

This Japanese ad is likely to be the biggest waste of time I have ever seen.  For all of the effort that was put into this commercial, it is unfortunate that they let 12 year old (World of Warcraft playing) boys create this Coca Cola ad.  I love the over exaggerated faces and of course the gigantic rubber duck out to destroy the world.  The main issue is that half way through watching this you have completely forgotten what product the commercial is for—- which is a problem.

     This poor model didn’t know what was coming.  As a young child it was my dream to have pictures of my ass up for everyone to see with the words “hot garbage smell” right on top. (No, really…)  Luckily for this girl her face isn’t involved.  

     While trying to catch peoples attention by bashing on others may seem like something that may be effective— There has got to be a better way!

I love the idea of this ad— “Protect you valuables”.  I guess the main problem with it is that there is a live dog inside of this condom.  Plus it’s pretty creepy.  Also how they put a pink background on this ad, seeming to use these elements to target ‘blonde, small dog loving, pink wearing women…??’  All of this is very possible and yet a tad ridiculous.  The picture may also have problems because it makes me think of things such as suffocation (?) Just a thought…



bad advertising hates kids

This poor little kid must be so confused!  

While trying to remind parents to keep a close eye on their children, this ads creator must have remembered how much he hated children.  This ad is in such bad taste, there has got to be a better way to go about this message.  While traumatizing kids with images of dead children on the bottom of the pool may seem like a golden idea–its not.  

NICE ONE JACKASS.

 

 

 

 

 

High Five also to the stupid guy who made this ad.  What did children ever do to you?  Im guessing you and the guy above have started a club in your mothers basement.  When you come up from the clubhouse, I have a great therapist I can refer both of you too.
