Favorite ads

I just saw this. Some ad executives are in conference about how to get Stride "Whitemint" gum customers to spit out their gum (since it's so delicious), so they can be sold more gum. The solution? A yeti.

One of my special favorites. Naturally, it's a beer ad. A very big beer ad.

The GPS one, it's pathetic that at 8 seconds in they put on the ad "Demonstration only. Do not attempt".

No doubts they felt they'd be sued if someone did this, speaks volumes about society.
