It wasn’t unintentionally funny, nor were there a confluence of words or poorly placed images that made it amusing, but it was just a complete non-sequitur. I had to stop in to the variety store near my work before heading in, and on the outside window was an ad that read:
This calls for a road trip.
…because when I think of chips, chocolate, and/or wafers, the first thing that comes to mind is a long drive around the province.
This is a government-sponsored Ontario tourism website. That ad made no flippin’ sense whatsoever. Did it have something to do with the fact that the ad was in the window of a convenience store? Because that doesn’t clear a damn thing up either.
So what useless and/or ineffective ads have you seen lately?
