36-divorce-ad

Good lord just when you think the idiots are all gone.  Check out this ad— Talk about desperate!!  This advertisers message is trying to get married people to divorce.  While it is slightly laughable, this ad SUCKS.  It is just plain tacky, along with the risque pictures that go along with it.  The law firm is using peoples personal problems to bring in customers, ICK.  Get a life and some morals please!

Lays ran this ad that at first seems a bit confusing.  Basically its one guy and a bunch of fucking wind socks working in an office.  Then towards the end he falls for a woman wind sock– eats some Lays and BAM turns into a wind sock himself.  Well Lays you have really outdone yourself, congrats!  It takes some real talent to create ads that are completely irrelevant, creep people out, and take attention completely away from your product.

Haha— so here is another dose of bad ad placement.  This article from the Inquirer talks about a Dell laptop that exploded and then burst into flames somewhere in Japan.

The best part of this is running an ad stating that you can get “hot online deals on Dell laptop computers” at the bottom of this page.  Yep, about as hot as fire.  Idiots…

This controversial UK advertisement has created some definite buzz– with Sony taking direct offense and threatening to sue because of the similarity of their “Dual Shock” controller to the one in this picture.  Put out by the British Department of Health, this ad hasn’t only gotten a rise out of Sony but gamers alike.  More importantly this ad is really weird because its goal is too scare little children.  Playing video games means death? Low blow…



Lets Play a Game

tribalshit

Here are 10 fucking lame things I have found on this ad.

1.  Well for starters, if you are going to be advertising dynamic advertising, at least make your ad look cool.  This ad SUCKS and in no way represents good dynamic advertising.

2.  Also if you are showing off your ads make sure you put cool ad examples up, there is nothing dynamic or creative about one inch of this page.
3.  Tribal Fusion? Creepy name.  Make it stop.
4.  Also the hand print logo is plain whack.
5.  Put the thesaurus down.  There are so many frilly words on this page–ick.
6.  Let me just be clear…this page is butt-ass-ugly, I don’t know how someone thought this was a good idea to bring in customers.
7.  Too much text not enough cool shit.
8.  Colors are dark and scary.  Give me something that catches my eye.
9.  Sure you have a snazzy Big City theme, but what does it mean!?!  Not much…
10.  The fact that this ad even exists is the lamest part in itself!

Can you find any more?

While bad ad placement [BAP] may be an unfortunate occurrence, some people in the advertising world are just ass holes.

adplacement

This first ad is an unfortunately placed bus wrap where it seems that the exhaust pipe is strategically (?) placed in the police mans crotch. Lovely… My favorite part is that it says, “Who’s making your neighborhood safer?” Obviously it is the policemen with tail pipe penises, I would just love to see the police man blow smoke from his privates.

Well Verizon, congrats on using your ad campaign to completely make yourself out to be a bunch of ass holes. By using their popular, “Can you hear me now?” slogan to get some customer attention on-line—  One thing Verizon obviously overlooked was that they are advertising on deaf.com. Enough said.
