A restaurant recently made headlines for offending a great number of people with a billboard that featured the phrase: “Like a cult, but with better Kool-Aid.” While the Jonestown reference was sorta funny in my opinion, I can see why people were offended. This is also why I didn’t go into advertising. My sense of humor is perhaps a little more dark than is fit for a career in the ad game. Here are a few other advertising ideas that I came up with that would probably be rejected.
Please note that these are all intended to be humorous. They are not real ads. They are designed to be slightly outrageous. Before you send me an angry comment, please reconsider using your energies in a far more productive way.
