Some Ads Are Funny, But For The Wrong Reasons (40 Advertising Fails)

We’re bombarded with advertising 24/7 now so mistakes are bound to happen. A good advertising campaign will convince you that you need a product or service. Especially when you don’t even realize you’re looking at an ad. When advertising fails it can actually work because I’ll remember it forever.
