    These 25 Genius Ads Brilliantly Make Their Point. I Love #17Ö Mmmmmmmm.

    Iíd like to think that really clever and honest advertising is an art form. Not just anyone can think of a brilliant way to promote their product while entertaining the consumer. That takes real talent. The 25 advertisements below are just a few examples of how awesome advertisers can be when they put their minds to it (and donít just use smut to get our attention).

    2.) Nike stresses dedication and training.

    Some of these are better than others - the "billboard that fades into the sky would be more impressive if one couldn't see obvious signs of photoshopping in the sky above where it theoretically bleeds into the sign color ...

    There is a watertower not far from us that is painted a pale blueish color, but only matches the sky above it maybe once or twice a year.

    I don't get #14 - is it just meant to be a way of collecting donations? I also don't get what makes the bus stop in #15 distracting. It took me a long time to figure out the man in the gasoline pump, too (duh).
    I've been Boo'd ... right off the stage!

    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!
