    6 MORE Of The Dumbest Ads On Earth

    These are not local ads, they were created by trained ad pros at big ad agencies. A continuing series...

    1.

    Burger King ad via Germany.

    Headline translation: LISTEN TO YOUR GUT FEELING.

    Thanks, BK, for reminder everybody exactly what kind of gut they will not get by eating your hamburgers. Mindbendingly imbecilic.

    Ad agency: Interone, Munich.

    2.

    Ad outta Moldova for Кошкин корм brand cat food. The idea is really idiotic and the Photoshop work is magnificently horrendous (look at the cat's eyes). But, what clinches the DUMB for me is the "cat" on the cat's trunks.

    Ad agency: Looma.

    3.

    Yes, there is a definite REASON no one dreams of their first vacuum cleaner. That’s because — stay with me here — vacuum cleaners SUCK because they are used to clean, and cleaning SUCKS.

    Let’s see: what other motorized devices is a Nissan vehicle dreamier than? An electric toothbrush? An oscillating fan?

    Ad agency: TBWA Toronto.

    4.

    Two ads from an Ecuadorian campaign for Ducati motorcycles.

    I am struck completely dumb by the dumbness of this inane idea.

    Ad agency: Maruri Grey, Ecuador.

    5.

    Ad for a major online bookseller in Portugal features some of the worst Photoshop work I've ever seen in a big agency ad.

    So...get it?

    THE BRAIN IS BEING IRRIGATED. SO'S IT GROWS. THAT'S WHAT READING DOES TO YOUR BRAIN. IT GROWS IT.

    Ad agency: Fuel, Lisbon
