74. Bright Idea: Provocative Billboard Advertising December 6, 2006

Posted by Matt Fleming, PsyD in Marketing.

The billboard, on the far side of a subway track, says “Come a little closer.” It is allegedly an ad for a funeral home in Germany. Get it?

If the main purpose of an ad is exposure, this is an example of too good a job (i.e. unless this funeral home is a global franchise, the resulting international exposure was overkill, no pun intended, for one local funeral home).

I came across this at TrendHunter.com. Read about people’s reactions, including if this image is photo-shopped, at StopGeek.com.

The following ads were found either on Billboardom.blogspot.com, or theCoolHunter.com.
