Intelligent Advertising


ADVERTISING: A fine selection of intelligent adverts

THERE’S something very pleasing about an intelligent advert, whether it be a poster or a TV commercial. Most people consider adverts as invasive and mute them whenever they come on, while others are suckered into buying just about anything that’s thrown at them.

I often find myself completely oblivious to what an advert is trying to sell – rather focusing on what subtleties they have employed to appeal to people’s human desires. These are usually quite obvious – the major ones being sex, fame, beauty and prosperity.

My favourite ads are the ones that take the piss out of the blatant methods of advertising and offer us something tasteful and humorous. Those are the ones we remember and make you rush out to buy their product at a store near you. Strange … I have a sudden urge to drink Heineken …
