Weird Ads

by MomGrind

When I was younger, I wanted to be many things. One of them: an ad executive. I ended up being a lawyer (and hating it), then a blogger for hire. I’m not sure if I should regret the career I never had in advertising, though. Being creative under crazy deadlines and constant pressure is tough.

Judging from the following weird ads, sometimes it’s so tough, that the results are, to put it mildly, bizarre.
