If you read my last post then you know that this one is a sequel. I did some of the best adverts or commercials then and now I want to see if I can find some really bad ones!
Straightaway we come to this self-explanatory site which claims to bring you the dumbest ads.
This ad is apparently for toilet paper, why it has a dog and cucumber slices could be anyone’s guess.
“I drove a co worker home. To my place” OK so far, but this is an ad for hair color!
These ones here are actually one line classified ads but really funny:
Lost: Small apricot poodle. Reward. Neutered like one of the family.
Dinner Special: Turkey $2.35; Chicken or Beef $2.25; Children $2.00.
For Sale: Antique desk suitable for lady with thick legs and large drawers.
Now is your chance to have your ears pierced and get an extra pair to take home too!
No matter what your topcoat is made of, this miracle spray will make it really repellent.
For Sale: Eight puppies from a German Shepherd and an Alaskan Hussy.
Dog for Sale: Eats anything and is fond of children.
Tired of cleaning yourself? Let me do it!
Man, honest. Will take anything.
Used Cars: Why go elsewhere to be cheated? Come here first!
Our bikinis are exciting. They are simply the tops.
Auto Repair Service: Try us once — you’ll never go anywhere else again.
Wanted: Preparer of food. Must like the food business, be dependable, and be willing to get hands dirty.
Mixing bowl set designed to please a cook with round bottom for efficient beating.
And now, the Superstore — unequaled in size, unmatched in variety, unrivaled inconvenience.
Then here is a really dumb one for Old Spice:
And this one for a Mercedes Benz is actually really funny, not dumb at all but does feature a dumb blonde, so here goes:
Check out these super dumb product warnings on this page. You cannot stop reading till you reach the end.
As for the stupidest commercial in recent times, I would have to say it is the Absolut vodka commercial, which shows Texas and California (among other US states) as being part of Mexico. Admittedly this was an ad aimed at Mexicans but it has managed to piss of the Americans to the extent that the advert has been recalled, unconditional apologies issued, etc.
Talk about ‘absolutely’ shooting yourself in the foot! Your views? Let me have them!
