Size Matters...10 Gigantic Ads that Grab Attention

Sometimes it does take a really big ad to make a really big presence and a really big message. Here are my picks for some of the best in oversized advertising:

 

1. Ass Kisser

This giant ad was placed in Germany by a company who helps find quality jobs. This ad humorously shows folks that there are easier ways to get good jobs then sucking up to your boss and being a brown-noser.

2. Fed Ex Kinkos

This giant highlighter was used to "highlight" the fact that Fed Ex Kinkos now sells office supplies. What a great way to "highlight" this by using the already painted curb.

3. Fed Ex Kinkos

SImilarly, to point out the new office supply line, Fed Ex Kinkos trategically used and oversized bottle of white out in another already painted area, the cross walk.

Double take

Fed Ex Kinkos wins it for me - if I saw one of these outsize products I'd know it was not real but it would still intrigue me - as seems to have happened with the passers-by in the photos - makes the product memorable and the name of the manufacturer sticks - unlike in the others that are 'stunts' - fine but they don't make you remember what the name was or what the purpose of it was.

Fed Ex for sure

I think it's a perfect idea to use oversized ads. Fed Ex are a perfect example of how this kind of advertivising can grab people's attention, and have them actualy stop, discover that the buzz is all about and even take pictures of the huge items. THAT is an effective strategy.
