    The sad thing is, people are dumb enough that just changing the font or the logo or ending perscriptions in a vowel actually works…

    Now, the dancing "go back to school" lady… I don't know who the hell clicks on those.

    Funny post. #12 is gorgeous too!

    Yay design/advertising humor.

    I worked in advertising for two corporations for 10 years. It's funny how much of this actually gets discussed in meetings and how much time is wasted hyping its importance.

  • Shithead

    This shit was fucking dumb. Fuck all of you advertisers and marketers. Rot in fucking hell.

    Very funny. You have to be in marketing to get it I suppose!

  • PUNK

    Honestly, this is funny and right on point. To all you haters out there who don't work in advertising / marketing / design, this post is hilarious. You don't have the same experience to find it hilarious – and that's OK. Just find a different website to laugh at today, and come back when they have burger flipping humor so that you get all the jokes.

    […] In the grand scheme of everything that occurs in your life, some products are unimportant to you. Actually a lot of products are unimportant. They might be important when you use them and you might love them but you aren’t putting a lot of thought in to the brand.
