I’d like to think that really clever and honest advertising is an art form. Not just anyonecan think of a brilliant way to promote their product while entertaining the consumer. That takes real talent. The 25 advertisements below are just a few examples of how awesome advertisers can be when they put their minds to it (and don’t just use smut to get our attention).
