15 of the Most Hilarious Ad Placement Fails

Advertising is key in bringing in customers. It helps companies, small business and individuals build awareness of the features and benefits of their products. It also helps them build an inclination

Advertising is key in bringing in customers. It helps companies, small business and individuals build awareness of the features and benefits of their products. It also helps them build an inclination for their products over those of the competitors and generate leads for their teams to follow up close. Additionally, advertising helps businesses introduce new products and services into the market, expand their markets, improve goodwill to the manufacturer, educate and motivate consumers, and increase their bottom line.

As much as advertising is advantageous, it can also attract some disadvantages. Examples of these disadvantages may include buyer confusion, addition to costs for the business, foul language and ethical objections. Another demerit includes the unfortunate placement, knowingly or unknowingly, of an ad. For example, a company advertising a woman from a foreign country who is proud of being in a particular country placing their ad next to another advertisement with the words ‘Get Them Out’ or ‘Don’t Let Them In’. Another one would be a website such as Yahoo placing their ad next to one that reads 404. When standing alone, both of the ads can do phenomenally, but because they are placed together, they could either work for or against the companies. Either way, they make for very hilarious situations.

As much as advertising is as important, poor ad placement can always happen. Here are 15 of the most hilarious placed ads that will have you dropping down on the floor from laughter:
