Clever use of buildings for advertisements

Clever ads on buildings

Anando Milk from India wanted to increase milk consumption among children,so they came up with this amazingly create ad placed on one of Mumbai's buildings, where you can seea child strong enough to move part of the building itself

Allstate auto insurance features an actual car teetering on the end of the parking garage in marina Towers,
a famous landmark in the center of downtown Chicago

The Haitong Building - a well known Shanghai landmark, has a curved top, so this building ad,
was place on the opposite building creating the illusion where the powerful gust from the Mida fan has caused the wave design

Wash me says the clever ad for Alco's cleaning products

Nikes run through the wall ad

Andean peaks crest the clouds above the Northern Ice Field.
At once severe and sublime, this icy wilderness is ruled by elemental forces that cause it to remain, for the most part, a blank spot on scientific maps.

The pristine waters and peaks of Aisén Sound appear fresh from the finger of God.
Yet just beyond the horizon lie some 300 salmon farms.

Die wondere van Klippies!

Flippie van Evander skryf:

"Ek het uiteindelik vanoggend tyd kon afknyp vir n bietjie swartbaars
hengel en het afgesit dam toe. Na 'n rukkie was my wurms op en terwyl ek rondkyk vir nog aas, merk ek 'n pofadder in die lang gras langs die dam met 'n padda in sy bek. Ek besef  dadelik hy kan my mos nie pik met die padda in sy bek nie en 'n padda is bleddie

The table behind Obama's desk is full of family photos - a wedding picture, shots of his girls as toddlers, a picture from the day he announced for president and more - photos that he says remind him "why I'm doing what I'm doing."

A big bowl of fresh apples on the coffee table, something of an Obama family tradition, has proved hugely popular with visitors, although the president still keeps M&Ms handy for kids.

Obama has set a less formal tone for the Oval Office from his first days as president.
When the White House released its first picture of him at work there, Obama was in shirt sleeves.
