Creative dead ends





Take a look at this outdoor advertisement for a leading cement brand. What do you think the security guard is trying to say?

1. Look! I can lean sideways!
2. Look! My left hand is bigger than my right hand.
3. Look at me you stupid elephant!
4. Jazz hands!!!!
5. All of the above.

Now look at the elephant. What do you think it is thinking?

1. If I ignore him, maybe he will go away.
2. Hope he leans a little further and falls down hehehe
3. Moron!
4. I need to change my agent. This is the stupidest advertisement ever.
5. All of the above.

What do you think the adman was thinking when he made this ad?

1. *blank*
2. *blank*
3. *blank*
4. This has to be my worst work ever!
5. All of the above

Those of you who chose No 5, clap your hands, you just won yourself the reassurance that you are still sane. The rest I am sorry to inform, have successfully been brainwashed into drooling zombies by our advertising agencies. Have a nice day!

I was thinking, "Why do they keep using African elephants in our ads? Can't they use Indian ones or don't they know the difference?"
