With a little creativity, something as common and ordinary as a billboard can be a striking work of art.
Well sure, we wouldn’t exactly categorize them up there with fine art masterpieces but this compilation of billboards below are, well, absolutely more than clever. We couldn’t help but admire the wit and humor of the people who created these awesome ads. They’ve pushed the boundaries of traditional marketing and frankly, I think they need a well-deserved raise.
Scroll down and see for yourself:
#1. Sex and the Subway.
What an effective way to grab people’s attention!
#2. Mr. Dry Crack.
The double entendre humor of this one definitely “cracked” me up.
#3. Berlei Bras.
As if having Anna Kournikova wasn’t enough, this billboard had to have catchy caption.
#4. Billboard vs. billboard.
Strategic billboard placement, wouldn’t you say?
#5. Air Asia.
Someone either got fired or promoted for this”Phuket I’ll go” ad.
#6. All you can eat.
This looks creepy but yep, still memorable so we’ll include it in the list.
#7. There are better ways indeed.
Now this is plainly gross.
#8. The sooner you advertise here, the better.
Nuff said, folks. Nuff said!
#9. Bic Razors.
#10. Maker’s Mark.
Honestly, I’m just looking at this and am left wondering how they pulled this off.
#11. Hello Boys.
Whoever said bra products should only target the female audience?
#12. Incredible Hulk.
The movie may have been a flop but this billboard just looks cool – even without using any words.
#13. Checkmate, Audi.
BMW responds to Audi’s challenge. With a bigger ad, no less.
This awesome-looking sundial ad was a big hit in the area.
#15. “Yeah right.”
Or in the immortal words of Ebinizer Scrooge, “Bah! Humbug!”
#16. Coop’s Paints.
Brilliant use of space around the billboard.
#17. Ponds facial scrub.
Not every billboard has to be a rectangle.
To promote the 2006 World Cup, Adidas had this massive billboard of Gemany’s Oliver Kahn.
#19. Cadbury Dairy Milk.
Wise use of mannequins on this one.
