Creative Advertising From Around The World....

I found some of these very imaginative, creative and funny. There are some more here.



An advertisement by Jung von Matt/Alster for watchmaker IWC. Bus straps have been fashioned from images of IWC's Big Pilot's Watch to allow bus travellers near the airport to try before they buy at Berlin, Germany.



A print of a cup of Folgers coffee was placed on top of manhole covers in New York City, USA. Holes on the print allows the steam to come out. Wordings around the cup reads 'Hey, City That Never Sleeps. Wake up." from Folgers.



An innovative idea on a large billboard in Amsterdam, Netherlands. It really makes you want that 'Heineken'.



Life-size stickers of people were stuck on automatic sliding doors at a mall in Mumbai, India. When someone approaches the doors move apart and it feels like the people on the door are moving away. The person enters to find the message 'People Move Away When You Have Body Odour'.



This is an advertisement found in Vancouver during the National Non-Smoking Week. The car was placed at the Vancouver Art Gallery and the message reads 'Death from car accidents: 370, Death from smoking-related causes: 6,027, Quit now before it kills you.'



Life size images were stuck on glass doors at shops, airports in South Africa for the advertisement of glass and window cleaner I.C.U. The expression on the face is priceless.

@Sai.. I agree. BO and MO both can make you feel like throwing up.
