  1. Andris

    Very nice advertisements

    i really like the pepsi ad.

  2. Dan Collins

    Great collection!
    I love the Perrier ad.

  3. charles gifty

    I like stong beer ad, it is touching

  4. Zork

    ads are awesome, i am really high

  5. Bluntman

    I like the Matchbox advertisement the most…
    And yeah I’m pretty stoned as well

  6. Meg

    The brick “ad” is fantastic. I am all for quirky “inside jokes” (sports fans get it; others won’t) that look out of place. A random single brick in a restaurant will stir curiosity.

  7. zrce

    i like them too…

  8. yomi sopein

    That seat belt Ad is ‘WARNINGFUL’ enough,i think the pix should remind drivers the aftermath of driving without using seat belt…..good concept.

  9. ingilizce


  10. chuckypita

    Shaq = BRICK!

    That’s a great ad – but I love Shaq Diesel. Oh well – sometimes the truth hurts.

  11. Jack9

    Some of these
    A. Bad. Conveying a poor (wrong) message about a product
    B. Take too long to notice the message that can effectively be conveyed in an easier and faster way to notice and understand. Also bad.

  12. Sotek

    Amazing collection!

  13. Alan

    A few “advertisements” that popped up around Wellington, NZ just before the premiere of “The Return of the King” are possibly also worth of mention. E.g. this, on top of the cinema where the premiere took place — http://www.chaosgeneration.com/gallery/kirsten/wellington/wellington_0130.jpg

    An advertising agency had this poster up — http://www.iansmith.co.uk/lotr/weblogs/images/NewZealand2003/Monday24Nov/Large/ECCS2290.jpg — and this was on the other side of the road — http://www.chaosgeneration.com/gallery/kirsten/wellington/wellington_0144.jpg

  14. Fun Online Games

    Awesome collection. Few of them were quite good.

  15. Free Wallpapers

    That pepsi ad was great. Any sites have another collection of these?

  16. Graduation Stoles

    I think my favorite was the wet floor ad because it took a while to get it!


  17. Kevin

    I wonder if Matt Groening gave permission to use Homer Simpson’s image in the “Feed the Brain” ad?

  18. Jim Roberts

    Absolutely brilliant!

  19. sachin khobragade

    great collection, specially the beer ad…

  20. HK

    Good!nice work!

  21. Rahul

    Awesome and hilarious too. My favs are the beer ad, wet floor, knives, pizza hut and nike. But other are also equally good.


  22. IT Freak

    As the topic also says, “Really Brilliant Advertising Ideas”.

  23. Steve Gannon

    Looking at the Coke-Pepsi cans with the straws, my take on it was the straw in the Coke can is doing hand stands and splits or something (exuding happiness), while the Pepsi straw is doing nothing ( no excitement) Then I saw it was sponsored by Pepsi, so I asked my co worker what he thought…he said, I think the coke straw is refusing to go into the can…Oh…I see…
    Wonder how many other people thought what i thought?

  24. Ejat

    awesome advertisement!

  25. baba

    I like the Matchbox advertisement the most…
    And yeah I’m pretty stoned as well

  26. Brisbane web designer

    Best collection I’ve seen in ages. My favourite is the bike doctor. A Stumble for your efforts :)

  27. Toni

    Hah, some good ones. The “burning the red light” is a bit scary / brutal though.

  28. rick

    How come I never see these ads in real life? Oh wait, I don’t have a TV. That may be why.

  29. Jon Kepler

    I’m sure the bubble wrap commercial is pretty engaging. It’s probably one of the best for word of mouth too. This is definitely worth a Digg and a post to my blog.

  30. Hany Saber

    HI all, very attractive Ads, anyone can help me “i’m prepairing a master degree in the role of the creative ideas in the success of the advertising campaigns, and i can’t find resources for this supject. if u know a name of any special books in this field, just want the name and the ISBN where i can find.

    Many many thanks for ur help

  31. Postcard Printing | PrintPlace.com

    I thought all the ads were good in that they were pretty fresh – many concepts I’ve never seen before. The Smoke is Poison one with the cigarette on the tanker – I think it would have been better if the front would have been painted as the brown, or filtered end so that the exhaust smoke would have been coming out of the end of the cigarette.
    I really like the bus one – nice use of venue!

  32. gazeteci

    very very nice

  33. Kevin

    Would love to see more that actually have clever headlines. Show me something in a Tom McElligott headine style and you’ve got my attention. I can concept clever visual metaphors all day along and stick a logo on.

    This below advertisement is good for big insurance companies:
    OUTDOOR VIEW: Sum high business men wearing suit, they are painting a wall or doing sum labor work (drilling – cleaning….) then suddenly limo car will be stopped near of them and two or three labors with big smile (and golden tooth ) they will get out of the car and washing the work.

    Then go to other view (safe your future with (name of the insurance company))
