This ad from Coral Decora Paint features a man painting the Great Wall of China.

Needless to say this isn't a real paint job. The Great Wall of China is a vast wall that runs along China's historical north border. It was built to be used in border control as well as a defence tool to keep out threatening groups. The Great Wall of China is actually made up of several different walls that were eventually joined together. Some of these walls were being built as early as the 7th century.

Of course, there is no chance anyone would get permission to start painting the Great Wall of China, but that's precisely the genius of this advertisement. The Great Wall of China is a globally recognized national monument and represents the empire's strength and size. Stats for Asian Artifact Painting Ads Trending: Older & Chilly
