Besides being a Christmas favorite, the Grinch is also one of our favorite characters we grew up with. This advert was done in incredibly bad taste, and we’re sorry to see the Grinch’s portrait used like this!
In real life, the Grinch would never agree to have his face used in adverts like this to promote some corporation’s greedy agenda! The Grinch may be grouchy, but he does have standards and prides himself on being anti-establishment.
Good Job Rhyming
At least Jay Oreman doesn't take himself too seriously; that's always a nice quality in a man! Especially as his billboards must be plastered all over town, advertising his services as a realtor.
And just for being such a good sport, we'd give Jay a call. If we need to find a home, that is. For our combing needs, we'll try someone else.
An Absolute Fail
Whoever was in charge of this must have thought that this is a great idea. We'll just put the word 'absolute' on a dress and let a model wear it; what could possibly go wrong? Oh, so much could go wrong, so much!
In this case, the problem is that at a certain angle, with some letters hidden, the word absolute can suddenly spell an improper term used to describe women.
As much as we love Starbucks, we can't help but enjoy this advertising faux pas. It's nice to know they also make mistakes even if they are a multinational chain of coffeehouses and roastery reserves and the world's largest coffeehouse chain.
If only their Baristas could try a little harder when writing down our names when taking our orders, they'd be perfect. Is that too much to ask?
Why Even Bother?
This is a multi-leveled design failure. First and foremost, whoever it was that designed this building thought that it made sense to create this tiny yet lengthy window.
That in itself makes no sense. But the shenanigans continued when someone decide to put blinds on the window. Oh, did we say blinds? We meant one blind — singular... Yes, we're just as shocked and speechless as you are.
