Print advertisements – epic or not?

Print advertising by nature is intended to catch your attention – and that’s exactly what these print advertisements have done. We’re not entirely sure if these print advertisements were planned. But they got us talking! We would call that a job well done.
Another subway ad that wants you to jump! “Come a little closer” – and experience the companies funeral services. Ingenious idea, but are these marketers going a little too far? What do you think, marketing genius or marketing faux pas?
Well done Bose.
Bose is a well known company in the world of audio-visual technology and one of their primary products is their extensive range of headphones. When Bose released noise cancelling headphones, they had to master the art of illustrating the noise cancelling qualities in a creative banner ad. And this is what they come up with. Great headphones – Bad luck!
Carrying too much weight?
This ad gives a whole new meaning to the phrase “carrying some extra weight”. Pilates With Gerda have taken their own humorous twist on it! Pilates by Gerda is a company that aims to promote weight loss through a range of Pilates exercises. The health and fitness market is massive these days and therefore, it’s also extremely competitive.
Turkish Airlines have done themselves no favours with this print advertisement. We can only wonder which advertising executive thought it was a good idea to have an airplane flying straight into the ground. Note to airlines, when you place a vertical print advertisement for your airline, try and ensure you position it facing up, soaring into the sky. Rather than facing down and crashing into the ground.
What print advertisements got you talking? We’d love to hear on Twitter.
