An Ad Via Kazakhstan That Makes No Sense Whatsoever

It has clowns in it.

Posted on

Questions/Thoughts

• Are Kazakh circus clowns known for not having car insurance?

• Are circus clowns, in general, not known for having car insurance?

• Are Kazakh circus clowns known for being bad drivers?

• Why "circus" clown in the headline, and not just "clown"?

• Why is there no clown car in this photo?

• The clowns in this photo are not acting like clowns at all.

• Will Centras Insurance insure clowns who wear clown shoes while driving?

• Does "clown" have a double meaning in Kazakh or Russian? (The ad is translated.)

Creative note #1: This ad violates the "Show & Tell" ad rule — Never show exactly what you're telling in the headline.

Creative note #2: This is only the second ad from Kazakhstan that I've posted about in 8+ years. Here's the other, an ad for a coffee shop that also makes zero sense.

Ad agency: GForce/Grey, Almaty, Kazakhstan.
