As much as I hate the sound of that one super-annoying ad, I have to admit some are pure genius. Advertisements can be pure art, when the team behind them knows what they’re doing. Which is less the case than I would want it to be, but hey – such is life.
But basically, if you pull off a great advertisement, you’ve truly achieved something remarkable. You got your intended message across, in a world chock-full of millions of competing ads, during a very short attention span. Some advertisements last merely a couple of seconds, while others sit alone and abandoned on a billboard somewhere. But if it’s done right, your eye flies right to it. Now that’s good advertisement!
And today, we’re doing homage to good advertisements from all around the world (thanks, AuntyAcid). Here are 24 examples of genius in advertising, and I hope you enjoy!
