Most ads are annoying and unavoidable, like the ones that pop up while you’re trying to read something online. We won’t even start with the KFC ads running during the Cricket World Cup, which are utterly cringeworthy and unwatchable.
Every now and then, though, ad agencies get it so right that it’s worth pausing to take the advert in.
Here’s Business Insider with 10 of the funniest, or smartest, ads to make it to print.
