Ad Slogans – What We’re Really Thinking

It’s shopping time again! From Black Friday (though this year it’s more like Black Everyday), to Cyber Monday, to infinity and beyond! Along with the emails we get from advertisers we never subscribed to (click ‘unsubscribe’ and give them your email address so they can sell it to still more advertisers). It’s hard not be cynical, when we’re inundated with advertising slogans. It’s time to slogan back at ’em! These faux ads do just that!

  4. Love your slogans – especially the the Old Spice. If any young man smelled like her grandpa, our granddaughter Genie would marry him on the spot. 💞😂

  6. Made me laugh out loud. Reminded me of my days in advertising. Reminded me of why I got out of advertising. We used to come up with ads like these to help alleviate the pressure of tight deadlines…because noting oils the machine like last-minute panic and nothing sets the stage for panic like creative procrastination.

  10. Fun and funny truth in advertising, Mitch. My beef with beef is it tastes awful unless it gets soused in Lea & Perrins’ Original Worcestershire Sauce (however it’s pronounced). But why would this elixir not upstage steak considering all of these delish, in the mix ingreds: Distilled White Vinegar, Molasses, Sugar, Water, Salt, Onions, Anchovies, Garlic, Cloves, Tamarind Extract, Natural Flavorings, Chili Pepper Extract. Who even needs the meat; just pour it on a piece of toast!

    Love the Old Spice one. 😁 Every year as a joke gift, one of the boys ( they are actually men now)in our family wraps a bottle of Old Spice that has been around for many many years. It is then given to another family member who then hangs on to it and passes it on the next year. Its a silly tradition they have done for so long.

    Today I learned about the “unsubscribe” thing 😳 But, at least your spot-on ads made it all better! I’m still giggling about the Adobe Acrobat one.
