Great and funny advertisements

I have to say I normally hate advertising with a passion.  Especially when it interrupts my favourite television show or movie.  That being said, I saw these really great advertisements and I couldn’t help but share them.

Generally speaking, though, I suspect that depending on when the readers see an advert and how great it is, will depend on whether they love or hate it.  For an advertisement to be great, it must be bold, easy to read and memorable.  Less is definitely more.  It needs to strike a chord within the minds and hearts of the readers.  It needs to impress the viewer / reader.   While humour is always a plus point, it needs to meet taste standards as well as meeting everyone’s sense of humour.  Very very difficult, which is why when I saw these I had to share:
