Advertisements aim to leave an impression on you, through images, messages and creativity. It’s ultimate goal is to convince you to take action and do something. Some ads, whether it is on tv or on billboards, can be pretty cool, and you might find yourself enjoying watching them. Let’s admit that there is no escape from advertisements nowadays, on TV, radio, publications you read, evens the apps you download on your phone. No matter how much you run away, they will find you, and reach you in some way. My favorite type of ads are the ones on billboards, as they have to be fun, creative and really clever in order to generate a notable buzz with a glance.
If billboard ads are used strategically, with a strong message at the right location, it will be very effective. When something catches our eye, we tend to talk about it right. Well, here are the some examples of ads that got a lot of people talking…:
This is a BIC razor billboard, and it has nothing but a small logo on it, and a giant razor cutting the grass. Oh, how powerful razor that must be..

You may think this is a scene from a Jackass movie, but it’s just another creative billboard that makes you talk about it when you see it.
This is not just an ordinary one. Take a look good look, read the words. If you still don’t see it, take a couple more seconds and read it again. Now let’s be honest, have you been drinking today..? I’m just kidding of course, but this ad makes you think doesn’t it?
All these ads were created by professional agencies in order to create a big buzz about the respective products, and I have saved my favorite one for last. This ad is the hardest to forget, and I don’t think the owners spend a huge amount of money on it. In my opinion, this is the most effective ad, because it sticks with you and you don’t forget it.
