Advertisements can be funny, advertisements can be creative and then there are some advertisements which we simply cannot resist without watching. These are the popular attention grabbing commercials because every time you watch them you love them even more either because of the melodious jingle or because of the theme of the advertisement. Some of these commercials are so outright funny that they have been banned in prominent countries meaning even if people want to watch those advertisements they cannot (you can consider yourself to be lucky here).

We have compiled some of the leading funny commercials from around the world which are insanely amusing, creative and would prompt you to watch them countless times. Again, if you are tired of watching those old and boring commercials you might just get a new favorite to watch from our collection of best commercials around the world.

1. The uber funny Durex 50 games to play commercial.

The commercial shows why making love is better than talking about love. It is funny to an extent but one of the sexiest ads of this season is a must watch because Durex has the reputation of launching it in their own style.

2. Vulture helps out the man with the data in this funny T-Mobile Commercial.

If you have not had laughter for really long then probably you have a reason to be happy because you will laugh your heart out after watching this advertisement. This advertisement has gone viral within just few days of its launch which features a man carrying a vulture on his shoulder and helping the man out in getting the data.

3.  George Clooney likes to have his Nespresso in Heaven.

George Clooney dies and goes to heaven (only in advertisement) to have his Nespresso Coffee. The commercial features Clooney and a wise man relaxing in a white-couch and talking about heaven. The funniest part about this advertisement is when George Clooney is offered to go back to heaven in exchange for his Nespresso machine.

4. McDonald’s funniest Indian ad which can cure all.

The self-explanatory ad where the sick man’s only cure is McDonald’s is hilariously funny.

5. The Super Funny China Commercial

You will get to know after watching this advertisement why you cannot cheat during exams in China.

If you are being asked to define the negative side of learning arts, how many of them will you be able to escalate? We wonder if an agency or an institute can advertise negatively about themselves to persuade people but an art school named The College for Creative Studies pulled it off quite brilliantly. The genius advertisement is the brain-child of the Detroit Advertisement agency to help the institute draw the students for art course. The advertisement is apparently the parody of the popular anti-drug campaign from the 1990’s and the right example of drawing attention through unconventional advertisement approach.

These are the 10 extremely fascinating art school advertisements which will make you re-consider the decision of not joining the art school:

1. Do you love to draw? I dare you say yes, I double dare you.

What is the first thing which strikes your mind when you watch an advertisement? An advertisement is conceptualized and created based on the product’s USP and for a particular target audience. Did you ever felt while watching AXE commercial that you can really get laid or do you feel like dancing while watching Evian baby commercial? If yes, then these advertisements actually managed to lure you with their key objectives and probably created the impact they actually wanted to amongst the target audience.

While watching the advertisements, people experience different moods depending upon the nature of the advertisements which can be emotional, persuasive, funny, creative or heart-touching. We get to see various kinds of advertisements on daily basis in the form of different advertising mediums like magazine ads, television commercials, newspaper ads, banner advertisements etc. Here are the 12 kinds of advertisements you will ever see:

A picture and a few lines have enough potential to build a brand image in the consumer’s eye.An effective print advertising design is directed at outshining potential competitors while attracting new potential customers or clients.Your business’s print advertisements need to give readers a reason to be interested in your business; they must be clear, succinct, informative, and inviting. Your print ad has just a split second to attract attention and quickly explain why your product or service has some lasting benefit to those who read about it.If you’re creating an advertisement in a magazine or newspaper, here’s what you need to know to create a good advertisement that stands out:

  1. Construct the right headline

    Reebok
    Example: Reebok

    In practically all cases, the headline constitutes the  most-important element of a print ad. Headlines should be clear and precise. Don’t get so drowned in the temptation of making it so “creative” that your meaning or brand message is lost or obscured in the process.                                                                               As important is the content of the headline,so is its placing. The headline should dominate the ad and be quickly understood. It should not get lost in a muddle of too many type fonts, graphics, and other elements.

  2. Hammer out your subheads

    Check-Out-These-Mind-Blowing-Mercedes-Benz-Print-Ads-02-630x445
    Mercedes-Benz just knows how to make its advertisements click.

    In addition to the main headline, a subhead can impart secondary information and explain the deal further. Attention should be paid to the fact that the ad doesnt end up looking too cluttered.

  3. Lay out your body copy

    mcdonalds_ad
    McDonald’s frames it right,with a precise yet arresting body copy.

    Like everything else in a good print ad,the body copy should be kept brief.

  4. Decide your graphics

    mentos
    Excellent use of graphics by Mentos.

    The graphic element of your ad is there to attract the readers’ eyes and generate enough interest to make them read your body copy. The graphic element should successfully call attention to your headline and should be relevant to what you’re selling.

  5. Test your Print Ad

    Print advertising should be recognisable at a hundred paces.A successful print ad is one where the lookers get to know whose ad it is without even seeing the brand name.

The social-media savy Indian users have now turned into social savings bank account customers and two of the leading private banks in India- ICICI bank and Kotak bank capitalized brilliantly on this opportunity. Brand wars on twitter just got even more aggressive with Kotak’s Jifi saver twitter campaign #Hashtagbanking receiving a tough competition from newly launched ICICI bank campaign #icicibankpay. Kotak has initiated this campaign in association with facebook and twitter while ICICI bank has made associated with Twitter India to introduce their newly initiated social media savings account.

Is it a wake up call for other banks to speed-up in the social media savy generation and mark their digital presence too soon in the near future? ICICI bank is one of the first banks in India to introduce mobile banking where the users could make easy transactions through their mobile phones and now icicibankpay campaign seems to be another great instance of digitally smart move. ICICI Bank has always maintained their reputation of being one of the most active banks in India to promote its services and products through digital mediums like Facebook and Twitter.

This campaign is initiated keeping in mind the large pool of banking customers who use social media platforms to make easy transactions and this campaign will even enable the users to make mobile recharge and bill payments. However, there is a transaction limit of Rs 10,000 per day besides the fact that the user needs to have a mandatory Facebook account to make use of this feature. Brand Wars competition was only limited to Pepsi Vs Coca-Cola or Audi Vs BMW but the likes of two biggest banking jargons coming to front is the sign of changing trend in the advertising industry.

Kotak’s Jifi Saver Campaign is also an admirable shift in digital sphere which offers bill payments and recharge options via twitter. The company kicked-off this campaign keeping in mind the number of users who use social media for daily transaction purposes. The social media trend which was only limited to running contests and giving free giveaways on facebook and twitter has emerged as the bigger medium which will now allow people to do the entire banking at just the push of a button.
