57 Humorous Auto Advertisements

From Aluminum Foil Auto Ads to Fantasy-Granting Auto Ads

— July 31, 2013 — Autos
Creating an ad that will instantly grab a viewer's attention is not the easiest of tasks, but these humorous auto advertisements have creatively decided to use comical themes and laughter in order to draw in audiences.

With commercials only lasting under a couple minutes, and print ads constantly being plastered everywhere you see, designing a campaign that will instantly strike an emotion or feeling is key to getting people invested. These humorous auto ads have decided to focus on more than just the car it's advertising, but rather to feature such humorous elements as driving dogs, zombie apocalypses and singing backseat passengers. By infusing these comical elements, marketers are able to create ads that will be easily identifiable by the public, serving to make them stand out amongst the other campaigns.
