I love these Brutally Honest Black Friday Ads. They were created for a contest hosted by Gizmodo who challenged their readers to do some clever Photoshop work to lighten up the gloom and doom people are feeling about the economy.

We've kept our finger on the pulse of Black Friday ads this year, and while we've been surprised by a few great deals, none of real left us shocked (OK, the 2-for-1 pickup trucks promo was pretty crazy!) These ads, however, induced a few chuckles, all due to clever plays on words and photoshop magic; in other words, totally up our alley! Stats for Spoof Black Friday Ads Trending: Older & Mild
