    Makes you think so if some of those may have been planned. I am a big fan of Ryan Howard (If you have not read his book, Trust Me, I'm Lying, stop what you're doing and go pick it up).

    He makes you questions how things go "viral". I know some of these are coincidental, but I doubt all of them are.

    A great share though. Some funny ads I had not seen before.

      I've just been at Barnes and Noble. Noticed that book, wondered if I should get it. With the little time I have, I passed. I'll go back.

      About the ads, even if what you say is true, they still made me laugh.The one licking the trash can and the got a big thirst ones, especially.

      I agree, that is a great book. I bought the audio version, as that's how I "read" books, and it was tremendous. Makes you look at the ads you see differently, doesn't it. Still, these are hilarious, whether intentional or not.

    Reminds me of that Modern Family episode when they try putting a real estate ad of their family on the van LOL.

  • I love reading business 'fails' such as these. Reminds me of an old post I saw a while back I have to revisit. For anyone starting a new company or website, make sure you're more intelligently creative in naming your business vs some of these guys...

    Haha. Thanks for posting this, it really made my day! Some of them didn't realize how cheesy their ads are. It's so lame.
