48 Funny Print Ads that’ll Keep You Laughing…and Buying

Inspiration August 20, 2011

Though hundreds of Print Ads are made each year to promote various products, not many can be considered successful based on the response of both the critics and the general public. People have seen so many advertisements that they’ll be quick to blast unoriginal or overused concepts. They also expect witty and powerful copy. For budding graphic artists trying to make a name for themselves in the field of advertising, it is essential to  find out what particular formulas have worked or failed in the past. And of course, the only way to do so is check out other works that have gotten the nod of critics and audience alike.

Something that has been present for a lot of successful print ads is the element of humor. While it isn’t really necessary, ads injected with humor, whether it be a form of sarcasm or just a clever joke, will most likely be remembered and talked about by the audience. We have compiled 48 of the funniest print ads made in recent years for your inspiration and sheer entertainment. Enjoy!
