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

To demonstrate Pantene's claim of really strong hair,  3 Rapunzel style stunts were staged in downtown Toronto
for two days, where live male climbers went up over three different oversize pigtails

Wrapping the female students dormitory in the shape of a calendar, they amied for the expression that
a new female can be met on a daily basis to promot the brand imange for axe.

The Nervous Priest


A new priest at his first mass was so nervous he could hardly speak. After mass he asked the monsignor how he had done. The monsignor replied, "When I am worried about getting nervous on the pulpit, I put a glass of vodka next to the water glass. If I start to get nervous, I take a sip." So next Sunday he took the monsignor's advice.


At the beginning of the sermon, he got nervous and took a drink. He proceeded to talk up a storm. Upon his return to his office after the mass, he found the following note on the door:

   1. Sip the vodka, don't gulp.
   2. There are 10 commandments, not 12.
   3. There are 12 disciples, not 10.
   4. Jesus was consecrated, not constipated.
   5. Jacob wagered his donkey, he did not bet his ass.
   6. We do not refer to Jesus Christ as the late J.C.
   7. The Father, Son, and Holy Ghost are not referred to as Daddy, Junior and the spook.
   8. David slew Goliath, he did not kick the shit out of him.
   9. When David was hit by a rock and was knocked off his donkey, don't say he was stoned off his ass.
  10. We do not refer to the cross as the "Big T."
  11. When Jesus broke the bread at the last supper he said, "take this and eat it for it is my body." He did not say " Eat me" .
  12. The Virgin Mary is not called " Mary with the Cherry,.
  13. The recommended grace before a meal is not: Rub-A-Dub-Dub thanks for the grub, Yeah God.
  14. Next Sunday there will be a taffy pulling contest at St.Peter's not a peter pulling contest at St.

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
goeie swartbaarsaas.

"Ek gryp die adder-kerel toe agter die kop en haal die padda versigtig uit en gooi hom in my aasemmer. Wat nou gemaak met ta pofadder?

"Skielik onthou ek die bottel Klipdrif in my piekniekmandjie. Met die
een hand haal ek hom uit en trek die prop met my tande uit. (Dis was 'n bottel 10 jaar Klippies met 'n kurkprop.)

"Versigtig gooi ek 'n bietjie in sy keel af. Sommer dadelik word adder se kind slap in my hande terwyl sy oe omrol. Ek los hom toe weer in die lang gras en gaan aan met my visvangery.

"So 'n rukkie later voel ek iets stamp stamp so aan my voet. Sal dit nie wragtig dieselfde pofadder wees nie! Die keer het hy egter twee paddas in sy bek!"

The inside of the Oval Office

The Oval Office
(Presidend Obama's office in the White House)

The real office, not the one you see in the movies!

Resting on the bookshelf is a framed program from the 1963 March on Washington, where Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his famous "I Have a Dream" speech.

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 bust of President Abraham Lincoln

A bust of Martin Luther King, Jr.,

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.
 George W. Bush, by contrast, made it a point to be in coat and tie whenever he entered the Oval Office.

These pictures were taken just after Christmas 2009, hence the Christmas decoraions.
