i love advertising SO much

August 6, 2010 at 11:51 am (Advertising)

Advertising has the power to instigate and inspire, enlighten and enrage, entertain and edify the consumer.

Some recent funny diggs i found šŸ™‚

This was Nike’s response to tone-up shoes from Sketchers and Reebok (later pegged as a fake ad, but funny nevertheless)


Also a funny campaign from Jose Cuervo

Jose Cuervo Challenges Mexicans to Grow Bicentennial MustachesMeanwhile, in Argentina, Coke Celebrates Day for Amigos With Friendship Machine

BUENOS AIRES (AdAge.com) — Big brands have fun with their promotions in Latin America, where the Jose Cuervo tequila brand is challenging Mexicans to grow really big mustaches in honor of their country’s bicentennial next month, and Coca-Cola celebrated Argentina’s popular Friendship Day with a special vending machine so tall that it took a pair of friends working together to buy a soft drink.


This is slightly more unrelated, but also some funny marketing off of Craigslist. šŸ™‚ Thanks, mike for sharing this with me.

Holy crap! What kind of badassary is this?!
A 2001 Black Ford Taurus!
Get the hell out of here!
This car is a god amongst other, smaller cars. It eats dead dinosaur to power its black dinosaur hating heart!

Ever seen that scene in movies where theres a badass explosion in the background and someones walking away from without even looking back. You know where they got the idea. yeah thats right. This fucking car walks away from explosions and doesnt even look back. Its lost plenty a pair of Gigantic sunglasses doing this so it just lets his best friend Samuel L Jackson dramatize it from now on.

This is what life is like if you dont buy this car

Look at this pathetic punkass. Not a lady in site. Im sure he hasnt been laid since Clinton was in office (everyone was getting laid then. awwwwwwwww yeah)
Now look what happens when you buy the car

BAM SON! This car will get you so many girls. Not weak ass girls. Strong ones. To open jars and shit.
All this for only $2100! GET THE FUCK OUT OF HERE!!

Look at that sweet ass lens flare. Its like im watching Star Trek. FUUUUUUCK!!

And this motherfucker comes equipped with an ipod cassete thing. So you can blast Tegan and Sara for fucking Dayzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

Oh shit! What the fuck?! Is that a lego batman Hanging off the rear view? and it comes with the fucking car?! SHUT THE FUCK UP!!

So your probably like, “Dude why would you sell such an awesome ass car”
Im moving to Hawaii at the end of August. Thats right. Fucking Hawaii. Beaches and shit.
And those Coconut Drinks dont come cheap you know. They probably have like a small umbrella tax or something. I dunno. I dont live there yet.
If you wanna test drive the shit out of this and maybe grab some Taco Bell while we are at it.

NOTE: I did not write this – I am merely a fan of the original poster. I reposted this after all the losers who couldn’t take the awesome genius of this write up flagged it for removal. It was originally here – http://sfbay.craigslist.org/eby/cto/1879395238.html Who would flag something so amazing you might ask? Well people who are not only uncreative losers but cowards too because they hide behind their anon flaggings. Probably a smart move though because I personally would punch someone in the face who would flag this to remove it. If you’re gonna flag this – flag it “Best Of.” Thanks.
