Today, our advertising industry is sadly resorting to skin lightening products or are snowed under with creating content that leaves you scratching your head. Although, now and then, you see an ad that becomes the flickering flame at the end of the tunnel and the optimist in you starts to believe that there is still some creativity left in the advertising world.

So, without any further ado, let’s have a look at a few ads that will make you sit and pay attention.

1. HYUNDAI

This ad is 90 seconds of first-rate humor.
