Ad fail – I cannot believe this is real!

Bender Method

I’m thinking about having a worst ad/best ad post every week.

But for now, this is just a pure worst ad, or  should I say, multiple worst ads.

A friend told me about this page and it took me a long time to decide whether it was real or a brilliant spoof.  Sadly it’s the former (but there’s still part of me that can’t believe it can be).

Check out the gratuitous (and surely unintended) innuendo from such products as The Spilldaddy, The Bender Ball (pictured) and The Floppy.  But best of all has to be the ShakeWeight – please, please watch this video.  It’s like a lesson in viral marketing but for all the wrong reasons!

My favourite World Cup ad

World Cup ad

I did a bit of a double-take when I saw this one on TV during the world cup semis.

Ignore Forlan, it’s the ad behind him that made me laugh.  Great advice, presumably from the South African government: “Arrive Alive”.  Well, I usually try to thanks.  Sadly, it’s not really in your hands in South Africa – they may as well use the strapline “try not to get shot”.  Click on the image to see it full-size.

Wet t-shirt competition

t-shirt design

Just kidding – it is about a t-shirt competition though! is holding a design-a-t-shirt competition and we thought we’d enter for a chance to win a few quid, but more importantly to win a ‘master designer’ title and generally showcase our design skills.

We love it (if we do say so ourselves!!) and we’ll be very upset if we don’t have this in the bag!
