  1. hahhahha OMG !! Really funny ads, Marketing people are too creative these days.. :-)

  2. TheBrazilian says:

    The 2nd one isn’t actually an ad. Its title translate to something like “Wake-up stories” and it’s a government warning on leaving cleaning products accessible to children. I guess it’s from Portugal. Anyhow, great post! Lols were had :P

  3. giri says:

    very funny :-) nice ads

  4. a finn says:

    The last one, “superpiss” is actually a windshield cleaning liquid. Pissapoika (lit “peeing boy”) is what they call the windshield washer in finnish.

  5. Tozé says:

    Yeah, the second one is a somewhat ironic warning on the risk of leaving dangerous chemicals such as bleach within the reach of children.

    The first logo on the bottom right of the poster is for INEM, which is the Portuguese integrated emergency medical service.

  6. kide- says:

    The Last one…Super Piss is actually windshield washer fluid from Finland.

  7. Fred says:

    There was a tooth paste sold in Hong kong and the far east in the middle 80′s under the label of Darky Toothpaste. Yes it did have a picture of a black guy in top hat with sparkling teeth

  8. Alex says:

    The second set of arms in picture 6 are the girl’s. She is hugging herself. Nothing creepy or funny here.

  9. JMZ says:

    first one is probably what Michael Jackson used

  10. Mr X says:

    Shlomo actually looks a bit like Elvis Costello.
