19 Best Ads I Have Ever Seen

1. Playboy
Argentine agency Grey came up with this brilliant idea for Playboy magazine.

2. Have fun
Made for Oohtique.com in Singapore by JWT agency.
This is a simple, creative and very cheap campaign with awesome results.

3. Missing a piece?
Alchemy Partnership worked on this creative project for Think Centre in Singapore. Clear message that gets your attention.

4. Plastic surgery

This ad has some years now. Created by DDB in Toronto, Canada.

5. Papa John’s Pizza

Adaptation by Saatchi & Saatchi, this time in Peru.

And some other company that took the idea for itself.

6. Vacuum cleaners

Made by Students from Miami Ad School. Clever way to find out how Hoover's vacuum cleaners really work.

7. World AIDS day

Denmark people get the word out. The objective of this air bubble is to make society think about the prejudice toward people affected with AIDS and social isolation being one of the worst effects of getting this contagious disease.

8. Vitae Shelters
For Vitae in Portugal.

9. Amnesty International
Agency Saatchi & Saatchi once again. This time has conducted a campaign for freedom of expression.

10. Seramis
A message to increase sales of bamboo's fertilizer Seramis.
Agency Scholz & Friends, Hamburg, Germany.

11. The Sopranos
Campaign for HBO Television Network in New York taxis to promote The Sopranos. It has to be disconcerting to find an arm hanging from a trunk.

12. Ultra Slim Sony Cyber-shot T1
This is such an original and cheap idea for Sony cameras. I can imagine people pulling the strap to see if there really is something down there.

13. Don't drink and drive
Pretty straightforward message. You get to see how your car is going to look like.

14. Leica Cameras's Zoom
Agency Young & Rubicam in Switzerland highlighted the main attribute of Leica cameras, its 12x optical zoom.

15. Ultra Thin Macbook Pro

A magazine ad. People is kinda tired of this stuff now and this ad in particular is not a huge deal, but curious none the less.

16. Life's too short
For jobsintown.com. Life's too short for the wrong job.

17. Small screen, small movie
For Megastar Media.

18. Unstick your style
Dove's Volumizing Mousse applied to cartoon girls.

19. Easy to get in - Frankfurt Saatchi
You can't smoke in Germany's train stations except inside the yellow squares. Agency Frankfurt Saatchi & Saatchi was approved by the company who made these squares to make a maze so you can find your way to the ashtray.

And i leave you with some more i like (yeah, I'm an ad freak)

This giant napkin dispenser containing napkins made from the original material you find in McDonalds napkins. It is a marketing effort by the famous hamburger chain to promote the Big 'N' Juicy burger.

Announcing the next Nemo movie.

Stop smoking.

Mini Cooper Subway entrance.

Resident Evil for Nintendo DS.

Superman movie.

Big hugs

answered by Guest | 05-21-2010 at 06:48 PM

Top 19..
Our ad campaigns (Kenya) are quite drab or too straightforward. This are excellent examples of what direction our ad agencies should go.
I also liked one that did the rounds on facebook of Baygon (Its an Insecticide) where they show an open doorway from an angle and Spidermans hand sticking out along the floor. (Insecticide-dead spiderman, get it?) No captions were used.. just images.. lovely..

answered by Challz | 05-21-2010 at 11:04 PM

Very nice collection! I love that, I'm also ad freak

great set of ads......each ad conveys the message in the most innovative and apt way.....kudos to the makers of them

answered by Guest | 07-26-2010 at 07:49 AM

Think I'm a bigger ad freak. I memorized my first commercial in the 70's as a kid and can still recall every last word. The series are the best. I particularly love the Ally Bank - "Even kids know its not fair", the "Im an apple / I'm a Mac" ads - and of course - the Purolator and Verizon series are very creative as well such great stuff as of late to break through the clutter. Not easy to do.

answered by Guest | 09-09-2010 at 12:09 AM

Hahaha they are soo funny! Thanks for sharing!

answered by Guest | 11-02-2010 at 05:36 AM

Great collection of images that i never see anywhere else. One thing about which I'm completely sure that these all images were made using the flash or adobe Photoshop. Not in real at all.

answered by Lindsay Swan | 03-03-2011 at 08:59 AM

The ads are best for improve creativeness for the ordinary people!

answered by Fire tear | 03-09-2011 at 10:24 AM

Interesting ads. I like the kill bill one. haha

answered by gradoo | 04-11-2011 at 08:39 AM

It's not "Creative" unless it sells!
Yes the samples follow the criteria of what you thought was creative, but, you missed disclosing the end benefit on the bottom line for the clients. Show the charts, graphs and sales results that would justify the so called "Creative" solutions presented. The world is full of award winning concepts that failed to achieve the business goals of the marketing plan.

answered by Guest | 05-16-2011 at 01:53 AM

I'm really interested in marketing and advertising and these pictures have inspired me so much.
Thanks to whoever posted them, they give me so many ideas for the future.

answered by Mahee | 06-22-2011 at 10:00 AM

Haha, these are some great ads, never seen the majority of them before, thanks for sharing.

answered by Guest | 09-20-2011 at 08:52 PM

Finally I got the right web site for the world's best ads. I remember seeing these images before and then I forgot where. Doing some searching I managed to find the same page again!

answered by Guest | 10-24-2011 at 10:12 AM

Some of the best examples I've seen. I think that if you start your advertising career, these ads should be shown the first day of class.

answered by Guest | 11-18-2011 at 08:41 PM

I liked the originality of the ads. The guys who came up with all these ideas know how to think outside the box and come with something new in a world where we see ads all the time and our minds have gotten used to it.

answered by Adam Worth | 12-11-2011 at 06:18 PM

These ads. They're all a clear win for me. So much talent.
Impressed by the ads located on the elevator, that was such a great idea.
