30 Clever and Creative Bus Ads

Published 14 years ago

Rarely do we give a billboard or bus ad a second glance, but it doesn’t mean that busvertising doesn’t work. On contrary, if you use it creatively (instead of just sticking some boring photo with a text on a bus) it may become viral, and reach a much wider audience beyond the scope of the street viewers. No wonder many cool and clever bus advertisements have been repeatedly reposted on various blogs, and this time we tried to collect only the best ones to share them with you. Enjoy!
