From March. You’ve seen the dumbest. These are not those.

1. Max Shoes

Via Switzerland.

2. Swiss Hemophilia Association

At the bottom of the back side of the page, the copy reads:
“For a hemophiliac this page is as dangerous as a razor blade.
Help those affected: www.shg.ch”

3. Penguin Multi Surface Cleaner

Via Thailand.
“Filth Has Nowhere To Hide.”
Smart and fun and original for the category.

I rarely like any McDonald’s ads.
This one is nice, though.

5. Seventh Moon Tattoo Shop
