"Under the Bridge" Advertising (0)

I've never seen advertising on the other side of the bridge, but there's always first time. This one is to dramatize the magnificent grip of JK Tyre tires.

"Skin Cancer Towel" Outdoor (0)

On a beach, would you rather use this "please take care this summer" skin-cancer-awareness towel or this i-am-a-playboy-covergirl one?

"Elevators Renew Hair" Billboard (0)

The sheer size of this billboard is awesome, but the coolest are the elevators, each demonstrating movement of a magic element that revitalizes the model's hair. Found in Taipei.

Lego's "Crane" Outdoor (0)

Lego's ad agency in Santiago (Chile) used cranes to hang giant Lego blocks. Very impressive. Previous Lego's outdoor ads in Santiago include this billboard, and its giant bricks were used before, too.

"Dead Pedestrians" Outdoor (0)

Babelfish translates the copy on these stickers roughly as "7000 pedestrians killed each year in Europe. Think about it when you are behind the wheel." Wonder how many pedestrians die while trying to read messages on ads like this one.

Billboard for Smart Car (3)

This South African billboard for Smart car is igniting all sorts of debates. Funny how they say "American nothing" since the car is made by DaimlerChrysler, the Chrysler part being, of course, American. Not to mention Clear Channel. Not to mention that when they try to get into the American market, some competitor will be glad to make this billboard known to the buying public.

"Giant Chcolocate Bar" Billboard (0)

Not a real choco bar, unfortunately, but very, uhm, sweet. Here's a whole Flickr photoset if you want to zoom in.

Russian "Don't Play With Fire" Sign (0)

"Be careful with fire in the forrest", warns this charming handpainted Russian sign (which you need to click to enlarge).

In the undying words of VW's Helga, this {probably photoshopped) billboard "is definitely sucking". Miele vacuum cleaners, via Frederik Samuel. Here's another sucking one for Electrolux vacuums.

"Benjamin Moore Paints" Billboard (0)

If you work with Pantone, you'll appreciate these billboards for Benjamin Moore Paints.

"Beaming Oprah Goes to Auschwitz" Billboard (0)

This is Auschwitz. A reader alerts us that the picture is of the Death Gate in Birkenau, another concentration camp, also known as Auschwitz II .

This is Oprah going there. How do you like them flames on the background?

Credits: Auschwitz pic, billboard pic. Thanks to Mark for the tip off.

Advertising on "Under Construction" Signs (0)

Undergoing a renovation, Cable Beach Resorts used their "under construction" signs to spread their message. From the portfolio of Marc Rapp.

A small ball travels from point A to point B and then (somehow) back in this 3D billboard for DHL in Amsterdam.

The "Wrong Job" Outdoor (0)

This brilliant campaign is for those who need a new job and for those who think ATMs and coffee machines are powered by micro-gnomes.

Billboard for Birds (0)

This billboard for bird food was equipped with, surprise, bird food to attract birds and demonstrate the power of the product. See how it works at Advertising for Peanuts, and check out a similar one for dogs.

Kinko's "White Out" Outdoor (0)

So, first you paint the sidewalks with a yellow marker, then you try to fix things with a bottle of white-out.
