20 Ads That Leave You Wondering, What Were They Thinking?

Published 1 year ago

We are just hot off the heels of the Balenciaga fiasco and well, apparently there’s a whole bunch of businesses out there that have made some interesting choices when it comes to advertising. In fact, you’ll even wonder, are they really ads or memes created on paint perhaps.

Luckily for us, someone created a group on Facebook dedicated to collecting these questionable ads and they do not disappoint. The group is not about mass following, but caters to a niche group that can appreciate these kinds of odd ads. If this sounds like your cup of tea, brace yourselves as these ads will truly leave you questioning, what was going on in the minds of those who created it first and foremost and secondly what was the person who approved it thinking. Browse the 20 best posts we found and collated below for your facepalming pleasure.

Shanilou Perera

Shanilou has always loved reading and learning about the world we live in. While she enjoys fictional books and stories just as much, since childhood she was especially fascinated by encyclopaedias and strangely enough, self-help books. As a kid, she spent most of her time consuming as much knowledge as she could get her hands on and could always be found at the library. Now, she still enjoys finding out about all the amazing things that surround us in our day-to-day lives and is blessed to be able to write about them to share with the whole world as a profession.

Got wisdom to pour?
