As an advertising agency, we know the importance of attention to detail. It’s critical to have several sets of eyes preview and edit a piece before it goes in front of the masses. However sometimes, the biggest fail of all could be placement. Sometimes it’s how and where the ad was placed that generates the attention…and maybe not the kind you were expecting. But is it a bad thing? What happens to all publicity is good publicity? We’ll let you be the judge.
A simple google search on “Ad Fails” will generate thousands of results (and frankly a loss of productivity in our marketing department because they’re so damn funny) on some epic marketing fails. We’ve compiled a list of our favorites.
(PSA: None of these came from Revel Advertising. Thank goodness.)
