Most bizarre print ads – Indian version

Posted on June 23rd, 2008 in Analytics , India , wonder why - 2 comments

Time for another look at print ads, this time for the most bizarre of them all. Mind you, these are not awful or plain lousy ads, for any column-centimeter worth its area has a fair share of lousy ads, these are simply bizarre ads, the kind that will make you go – WTF?

The first one is from Lenevo slim monitors, they are so slim that you can cut a head off with them, who comes up with this stuff anyway?

This is even more bizarre, kanika digital printers that can print almost life like – really tasteless

Now comes itch guard, subtle and yucky

This classic wtfness displayed by Sahara global, I think they mean that you can visit the place, but.. why create such visually revolting ad for that?

I had post another lenevo ad for it displays intense lack of common sense on the ad designers part

    Though I agree with you on the rest, the Lenovo ads make their point – that it is the slimmest laptop.

    @Hypnos – yeah, possibly they are the slimmest, but it looks slightly un-normal, a business person clad in fine suit carrying laptop without a bag and drops it in a drainage cover grill which has only horizontal (or vertical) grill bars.. :D
    I think most of these ads are creative but also bizarre…
