It seems that we are being bombarded by advertisements, on
billboards, on the side of buses and even while waiting for the elevator. But when these ads make you do a double take or make you pay attention, that’s when you know that advertising dollars have been put to good use. And let’s face it, it is getting harder and harder to shock, impress or make people think.
Below, we’ve featured
a collection of ads that are not only creative but are also great attempts at being intelligent and thoughtful. Some ads highlight serious social issues and generate public awareness, while others poke harmless fun at major brands. Name your favorite in the comments or let us know of any cool ads you have come across.
