9 Funny and Inventive Ads to Make You Lose Weight

There are dozens of weight loss programs and "lose ten pounds instantly" schemes. Some of them work and some of them don't. Why do you think so many people even try these weight loss programs when the results are not the best? Maybe its the advertising?

Here are my picks for some of the funniest and most creative weight loss program ads from recent marketing campaigns:

1. Weight Watchers - Before and After Doors

These doors are labeled entrance and exit with the Weight Watchers logo in between.
