Prepare to be persuaded to buy what they're selling

Creativity is a requirement these days, if potential consumers are to notice your product ad. The following is the collection of the ads we like, next in the series of "Cool Advertisements" - ad campaigns with true entertainment value and definitely worth a look:

We'll start with the examples of bad advertising: when life intervenes and creates its own statement - not necessarily the one the promoters hoped for:

Which air-conditioner would you choose, LG or Samsung?

Would you fly this airline?

GoAir (one of the fastest growing airlines in India) goes against Kingfisher and Jet Airways.

Another company brand problem:

Sometimes life imitates ads:


Jealous Computers

Very ingenious campaign that claims that computers (mostly laptops) attack their owners out of sheer jealousy and desperation when the owners buy a new Nokia N95 phone. The attacks are documented (with videos) on their site, plus they produce evidence of wounds resulted from attacks:

Stories like "I was burnt by my computer mouse" or "bitten by the mad laptop" abound...

More geeky ads:

Be prepared for the worst:

Absolutely hilarious fake ad, that exploits your fears:


These ones might give you a jolt:

ad for the hairdresser:

good ad placement:


Mercedes ad:

Good brakes!


Other fun ones:

Beautiful creatures (in Levis):

Ad for the shoe sheen product:

Nice vacuum ad:

Trim your garden:

Effectively use your time:

Get a timely relief:

Don't be in the wrong place at the wrong time:

You've got a problem with our music?

Ad for the Surf School:

"Mother Nature does not work around you"

This one is a classic:


Urban & Viral Marketing:

Paintings displayed in Moscow Metro train cars:
(art experience for the trapped audience, very therapeutic)

Nothing this airline can't handle, with special care:

Very crafty use of some property, located right under the landing approach to Gatwick airport... soon you would need "parental guidance" just to look out of your plane windows (Read more here)

More inventive placement:

One creative agency decided to bring the ultimate argument in "who rules in logo design":
