Love the "life's too short for the wrong job" ads! So well crafted.

"Ad for paints, quite impossible to pass by" is actually a Nationwide Insurance ad.

Like "get insurance before a billboard of a huge can of paint suddenly becomes REAL and tips over and spills on your building and cars".. sort of.
